Studio Electronics Code 8 SN 1395
via this auction
"Very rare full 8 stereo voice Code 8 OD (enhanced version of Omega 8) - all voices have Oberheim and Moog filters as well as overdrive (OD) boards.
Without doubt the best sounding synth I have ever owned, and that list includes Andromeda, Jupiter 6/8, MKS80, Prophet 12, Voyager etc - very reluctant sale as somehow finishing house build is more important at the moment :-(
8 sinewave generators for Oscillator 1 and the brilliant new Filter Control Section which allow sweeping and tweaking the discrete filter types in real time (as opposed to unreal?), set this NovaMusik-partnered Omega Series Synth apart from our beloved, standard issue Omega 8s. Clever switches in the Filter Control Section also contribute to the CODE's expressiveness via momentary control of assignable parameters, and full panel control—secluded behind veils of edit windows in the Omega—of the auto-triggering External Audio Input, jack you wholly into the synth's processing and punctuating power."
