John Bowen SOLARIS Synthesizer

via this auction

"Up for auction is argueably the best sounding synth made to date, the somewhat rare and amazing John Bowen SOLARIS. The SOLARIS is a high-end digital synthesizer, which features state-of the-art digital synthesizer technology, yet sounds like classics of the past, or digitals of the present and future. Because of John's early successes working for Moog and Sequential Circuits, and Korg, John had an intimate knowledge of analog synthesis...but later on, he also became one of the best designers of digital synthesis with Creamware and Zarg. This made John uniquely qualified to combine all he had learned into the Solaris. This synthesizer is A BEAST to say the least, able to emulate most any analog or digital synth with ease, although John designed it to go where synths had not yet gone as well. And not only is the sound fat, thick, and ballsy in a very analog way, but also very capable of sounding digital in a analog way as well...very hard to hear some of it's sounds and not hear analog oscillators and filters in it somewhere."
