"Emergencynth Portable Music Synthesizer
The Emergencynth is a hand made portable hand held synthesizer. It has 8 oscillators which can be tuned in unison, or spread out over a range of many octaves, or set to various preset harmonies. The oscillators can 8 different waveforms: sin, two triangles, two saws and three square waves. There is also pitch sweep and 4 amplitude envelopes to choose from.

The 32 step sequencer has programmable memory for 8 patterns. It comes with preset patterns written by members of Oneida, Trans Am, Parts and Labor and Roxy Pain, but you can save over them if you want to make your own.

The Arpeggiator has 8 different modes, some of them are pretty weird like "one step forward, then two steps back", brownian walk and permutation.

The emergencynth is housed in an electrical junction box, complete with power supply and a mini cable for connecting the trigger in and out ports to other vintage gear.
