"Stuido [sic] Electronics CODE 8 OD Synthesizer

Custom Designed Fuzz Control Breakout Box

Midiminiafy Option Installed
1 TR-303 Filter Installed
1 ARP 2600 Filter Installed
1 CS-80 Filter Installed
Discrete OP Amps Installed

I am the original owner of this custom designed synth. It is in mint condition. I am only selling because I need money to go back to school. What makes this CODE unique is that the guys at studio electronics made a custom breakout box for it and named it the Serpico 8 (Fuzz Control). It is the only one in existence. This box allows you to control the amount of overdrive for each voice individually. You can also turn the overdrive on or off on each voice. With the Midiminiafy option installed, you can choose between Oberheim or Minimoog filters for each voice. There are custom switches on the front panel that allow you to turn on or off Minimoog ADSR envelopes for each voice. With the Minimoog filter and envelope enabled for any or all voices you can sound just like a Minimoog. There are also 1 each of all of the other available filters installed: Roland TR-303, ARP 2600, and Yamaha CS-80. These are installed on the first 3 voices. The discrete op amps on the main output give you better sound. You can use the 8 analog voices for one sound or you can use them in multi-mode. When in multi-mode, this synth can sound like many different synths due to the amount of filters, envelopes, and overdrive controls that are available to you."
