Wurlitzer Organ With Orbit Synthesizer

   (0 reviews)

The Orbit Synthesizer is a monophonic analog synthesizer that was included as a third manual on various electric organs from Wurlitzer in 1971.

The Obit makes some pretty convincing analog lead melodic sounds and can also make cool spacey otherworldly sounds which probably gave owners of the organ an edge up over their contemporaries for original sound and jamming.

The synth section itself is well laid out with controls right on the panel. Its main features for shaping sound is one voltage controlled oscillator with an LFO for pitch and rate controls, an envelope with attack and sustain, 10 presets of acoustic and reed instruments, and a 25 key mini keyboard.

Gear hackers have salvaged just the Orbit from the unit and have made them into custom solo instruments that fully work as intended as well as circuit bending the unit with other effects and audio gear.
