Octave Plateau CAT Analog Synthesizer (arp Odyssey MKI 2800) c 1975
via this auction
"As you can see I the pics, this vintage, c 1975 Octave Cat (Arp odyssey) is in excellent condition. This is a GENUINE, ORIGINAL, VINTAGE synth. It has just been fully serviced and calibrated, and is in 100% perfect working order. Every key, function, knob, slider and switch operates as designed, and they synth sounds...amazing. This synth also has with full cv/trig/gate ins and outs for interfacing with other synthesizers, expansion modules, or your midi/cv kit. Awesome.
This synthesizer makes all of the beeps, boops, squishy leads, booming basses, and wacky modulation noises you want. You can also achieve wild cross-modulation between the oscillators by switching them into unison mode and using the vco2 pitch to pit them against each other. She also has ring mod, s&h, pink/white noise and audio in for the famous arp filter. (I love running ext audio through it w the sample/hold modulating. -the trick they turned into a $350 moog Murf ;). The synth is in terrific cosmetic condition, with only minor wear."
