Korg Poly-61 Vintage Analog Synthesizer


via this auction

"The KORG Poly-61 is a programmable polyphonic synthesizer released by Korg in 1982, as a successor to the Polysix. It was notable for being Korg's first "knobless" synthesizer - featuring a push-button interface for programming, dispensing from the Polysix's knobs and switches. The Poly-61 also moved to a hybrid tone-generation system, using digitally controlled analog oscillators or DCO's (Roland's Juno-6 had made the same leap the previous year), in place of the Polysix' more retrograde VCOs.

In 1984 a MIDI version, the Poly-61M was released featuring basic MIDI implementation."
