** Watch in HD** **100% No Talking!!**

The Sequential Split-Eight (1985) AKA: PRO-8
I've really gone & done it. This synth is so cool!
How to describe such a RARE SYNTHESIZER...
--with all of it's character & vintage quirks.....
As quirky as a Prophet-600 (tuning, voicing, MIDI)
..as mean as a Prophet-600 (If you know what you are doing)
It's knob-less to the knob jockey but it's POWER is easily
accessible thru the IN YOUR FACE menu diagram right in front
of you... such a breeze to tweak... and after a bit you get it
& it is SO FUN to make new sounds! Worth the $$$$!!!

In this demo I show off some custom sounds & I tweak
them into sonic mutations.. this synth (and other SCI kit)
is so cool & all have a distinct sonic character different
from ANY other synth in the studio. Even against new
DSI gear.. Original Sequential Circuits gear still holds it's
sonic charm, allure, worth & POWER! I love it!!!

The SPLIT-EIGHT is SUPER RARE on the market...
I was calling all of my spirit guides & demigods to help me
on this transaction.. but here are the HARD FACTS PEOPLE...
If you EVER expect a second hand vintage synth to be
FLAWLESS (unless completely refurbished) be ready for
a serious surprise... expect SOMETHING quirky at least...
I have had more than a few vintage synths like this... :0
(It's 2017 for goodness sake! LOL!!!)

The Split-8 sounds cool, it's useful for today's vintage standard.
But expect some tuning issues randomly, voices not following
the filter or some amp settings like all of the other voices...
There are a few moments in this video demo that show it...
Wine Country might be your friend for a few months...
(But hey, It's good to be their friend, they are awesome!!)
That being said having some SWEET vintage kit is cool &
such an honor to have! It says a TON about your synth taste!
I like how this synth can pull up sounds not like anything else.
I am going to post a few more videos of this RARE SYNTH soon.
Keep posted, Subscribe & TURN IT UP!!!! YOU ROCK!!!!!!!!
