Limaflo Chicago Bass mk1

via this auction

"Chicago Mk1 - Limited Edition (only 30 made - SN 16/30).

Deep Lounge sinewaves, classic House bass, through to dirty Techno riffs. The Chicago Boutique RIFF & BASS Analogue Synthesizer is designed with basic or limited features, yet a useful sound portfolio, made possible by the 5 OSCs (four variable phase and width pulse oscillators, in addition to the Sub), Square and Saw oscillators, all shaped by a wide bandwidth 4 pole Sallen & Key low-pass analogue filter.

The Limited Edition Chicago Boutique Monophonic RIFF & BASS Analogue Synthesizer began with a new approach to the filter and oscillator design, resulting in sounds that work perfectly 'in the mix', with deep solid lows and rich percussive highs (when you need it). Pulse nuance controls allows you to get the sound just right through very subtle harmonic variations. It is not for nothing called Chicago Bass as it does that classic sound very well indeed.


5 Oscillators:
4 x independent Pulse waves with variable phase (automatic or manual) and pulse-width control.
1 x Square or Saw and Sub oscillator - all with accurate stable tuning (at any temperature). The Saw oscillator circuit uses discrete components for a perfect and pure Saw waveform.
