Multivox MX-450 Analog Bass Pedal Synthesizer SN 00436

via this auction

"This is a very rare, Multivox Corp analogue Bass Pedal synthesizer. A survivor from the early to mid 1970's

Made in Japan, for The Multivox Corp. of America, New York. Very strong and durable, mostly constructed of steel, including the pedals.

Good condition. Electronics work well with the exception of the LED on the sustain button. The sustain function works but the light does not work. This would be an easy and inexpensive fix. Cosmetically good for age. Someone painted the notes on each of the keys long ago.

This can be set up to do some really spacey and funky vintage synth riffs. Control for octave shift so you can play bass or go up to tenor range . 13 notes, just over an octave, chromatic-C to D.

Six 1/4" Jacks;two inputs; CV, Trig,
and four outputs; CV, Trig, CV/Trig, Audio out.

Control knobs are;
VCO Tune- (1 main and 1 sub osc.)

VCF- frequency knob, resonance knob.

Envelope generator- sustain


Seven push button Switches are:
Sub Osc./ 2nd Octave/ VCF Sweep/ Percussion / Slow Attack/ Sustain/ VCA Hold. "
