1984 Sequential Circuits Max: 6 Voice Analog Polyphonic Synthesizer

Published on Apr 12, 2018 Roman Audio

"The Sequential Circuits Max is a 6 voice, 6 oscillator, and 6 VCF synthesizer that could be considered a budget version of the Sequential Circuits Prophet 600 because of its lack of control surfaces, aside from a simple 500 note sequencer and patch selection controls. This is not the case upon closer inspection, as all of the functionality of the Sequential Circuits Max can be accessed through simple MIDI CC control from MIDI controllers, DAW's, and more! This and many of the pre-programmed patches reveal its' true analog character. With a little experimentation and programming, the Sequential Circuits Max can achieve a sound close to that of a Prophet 600 or even a Prophet 5! It is definitely an underrated synth that has potential in many different areas!

Gear Used:
- Sequential Circuits Max
- Arturia Beatstep Pro
- Novation Impulse 49
- Behringer EM600"
