"The Soloist 505 is a very simple monophonic synth. Its look reminds one of a Roland SH-1000, but with its controls on the front. The sound is very clear and clean like many Italian cousins (Siel). There is a preset section but the waveforms can also be modified in 'free' mode. Funny sounds, lysergic and ancestral. But the keyboard is good and there are some presets such as the sax, trombone, cosmic, flute e telstar which have some power worth exploring. It's cute and slightly rare. No MIDI or CV here."

"Great analog preset monosynth, unique sounding - one of a kind!
There are two Moog ladder filters in this thing, which makes it sound nice and fat.
Check out the video for a run through of the presets and filters, great for library / afro funk type sounds, real greasy!"

Note the video is from 2012.
