Sequential Circuits Split Eight Synthesizer - SCI Split 8

via this auction

Similar to the Multi-Trak, Six-Trak, and Pro-8. Same core synth engine, slightly different implementations. The Pro-8 had the white board on the right and the classic white on black SCI panel graphics.

"The Split-8 is a polyphonic analogue keyboard synthesizer manufactured by Sequential Circuits. Built in Japan and going by the alternative name 'Pro-8' in some markets, this was one of the last synthesizers produced by the company and was assigned model number 608. It was released in 1985 at a list price of $1,199 (or $1,195; this number varied between advertisements). This and some other Sequential Circuits synthesizers (the Six-Trak, Multi-Trak and MAX) were built around the Curtis Electronics CEM 3394 'synth-on-a-chip' integrated circuit, and used a Z80 as their central microprocessor."
