Steiner Parker SynthaSystem Modular

   (0 reviews)

The SynthaSystem from Steiner Parker began being manufactured in 1975 was considered a go to machine for sound effects.

With 3 VCO's including white and pink noise, along with 74 knobs and switches, the machine offers quite a bit of flexibility. External audio processing is also available particularly the filtering of external audio.

There was also an optional 49 key controller keyboard available as well as an 8 step sequencer. Additionally there was also an extension cabinet as an add on for the SynthaSystem that could be customized with additional oscillators, filters, LFO's.
