Oxford Synthesizer Company OSCar SN 6305
via this auction, also on Reverb.
"For sale here is a rare OSCar Oxford Synthesiser Company. This OSCar has midi and is 100% fully functional. It came just back from servicing and plays perfectly. Cosmetically it's in excellent shape. It sounds AMAZING, with a huge set of features for the time, including programmable harmonic waveforms, patch memory, sequencer, an awesome arpeggiator, duophonic capabilities (yes you can play two notes at once) along with one of the best filters I have ever played, allowing for LP, BP, HP, overdrive capabilities. Huge bass, leads, effects unlike anything else. One of my favorite monophonic synthesizers of all time, & I've played them all, from Minimoogs to Arp Odysseys to Synton Syrinx. If I had to describe the sound I would say it's instant Boards of Canada, smooth, bubbly, analog with an aggressive Aphex Twin side that can get gritty & rough."
