Seiko DS-202 Synthesizer

    Description
    Believe it or not, SEIKO. The same people known for making watches, joined the 1980s digital keyboard bandwagon with a rather interesting keyboard of their own. The digital synthesizer was a modular system of sorts that included the DS-202 Keyboard, the DS-310 Synthesizer control module and the DS-320 Sequencer for playing and composing your own tracks.

    What is interesting is SEIKO's system was built around a 16 harmonic additive synthesis engine. The user could set any of 16 levels for creating the waveforms / sounds that could be played on the keyboard. The synth also features two envelopes and and LFO for shaping and modulation of the sounds.
