Studio Electronics Tonestar 8106
via this auction
"TONESTAR 8106, an ARP® 2600-inspired complete synth voice, infuses Tim Caswell's 'Jupiter to Juno' filter alchemy—a 6db/oct hi-pass filter followed by a recreation of the Roland IR3109 module—into our Tonestar 2600 platform; this chirpy yet full-bodied 8106 model is also fully #OutsToOuts modular featuring 27 pots—one more that the 2600 model for the high-pass filter, 6 switches—one less, sacrificing resonance modulation for that high-pass filtering, and 21 jacks. If the Tone☆ 8106 thins somewhat with resonance excess, route the triangle wave 'round the VCF with the 'NO VCF' switch setting, and keep this juicy reimagining of the Roland® IR3109 module boomin' and gloomin'."
