1981 Firstman SQ-1 Synthesizer/Step Sequencer SN 600515

via this auction

Glossy surface. You can find an advert scan below.

"cool rare little futuristic sequencer/synth. predecessor of the mighty tb 303.

the sequencer is actually really nice, capable of sequences from 2 measures in 6/8 to 16(!) meas. 4/4. sequence programming is done via foil-keyboard. you can program legato and choose from two attack settings (like an accent feature but more nice).

the synthesizer part is parameter wise somewhat limited but also very musical. the sound is quite bass heavy and can be a bit distorted in a good way if you wish. I think it sounds really special and very good.

can be played in realtime via foil keyboard. also has cv/gate and clock in and out."
