Sequential Circuits Prelude

via this auction

"I have been collecting a lot of string synths lately, and the Prelude is one of the most versatile. It has a particularly good resonant filter, and can go from vintage string bliss to biting, funky clavs and synth/brass stabs, to jazzy organs with the flick of a switch and a push of the filter. AND you can layer everything for a huge sound that is like nothing else. The EQ and Modulation as well as the resonant filter give you a lot of variety and control. And the full polyphony allows for some huge sustained soundscapes. I am learning that string synths are the best source of that elusive vintage sound without spending thousands of dollars.

The Prelude reminds me a lot of the Korg Delta but with additional instruments and a sophisticated EQ and modulation section.

The keybed plays really well, and all knobs and switches work as expected. There is no noise in the outputs, and there is minimal if any static when moving faders. This synth has been well taken care of and just serviced to ensure it is in top condition. You will notice some slight marks on the bottom right corner, but otherwise it is very nice."
