Ensoniq SQ-80 Cross Wave Synth w/ Extras

via this auction

Interesting note about John Carpenter using the SQ-80, however the SQ-80 was released in 1988: "I grew up being a huge fan of John Carpenter films (Assault on District 13, The Thing, and Escape From New York probably being my favorites) and always loved the music in them. I read in a magazine interview that he did the music himself with an SQ-80 and I immediately looked to see how I could get one. After realizing that it was way out of my price range as a young kid, I made tapes of the music instead and had to wait until over a decade later to realize my dream of owning this classic synthesizer.

This SQ-80 is in perfect working order and it comes with a rugged road case (this synth has played a few gigs), original instruction manual, MIDI cables and power cable, 3 sound cartridges, and the original sustain pedal."
