Sequential Circuits Multi-Trak 6 Voice Analog MIDI Synthesizer SN 00183

"I just completed a 90% restoration on it; touching up paint, servicing the keybed, and pots. It has a new lithium memory battery and I reloaded the original patches from Sequential. It has some light wear on the front panel finish that I didn't mess with in order to preserve the original graphics and a few minor dings on the ABS knobs and end plates. The pitch wheel has a split that has been epoxy'd back together. Years ago I found a NOS replacement and put it in, lasted about 2 months and also split. With the relief of being glued back together the wheel hasn't needed to be messed with for years. The power supply cable has areas that are taped, all the internal wires are sound (no splices). It's just that being a multi wire cable the outer jacket has started break down as the flex agent has aged out of the plastic.

The voice architecture with 3 adsrs and an output per voice (6 with 2 mix outs) makes it the ideal analog add-on for the modern project studio. It can function as 6 monosynths if you need it to, 3 duophonic, you get the picture. One vco per voice can become 2 or 3 at the corresponding cost of a voice sent to the mix out. The Muli-Track has limited ability to receive CC messages via MIDI, however due to similarities between the boards there is a mod available to add complete CC support from the MAX expander. I was content to map to the mod wheel, but I wanted to make potential owners aware the option is out there to purchase and add themselves."
