Maestro soviet analog synthesizer \ Маэстро

Published on May 17, 2017 Cyril Metodey

"the instrument has mods by Logich:
Midi+arpeggiator sync to midi clock.
Three direct VCO Wavefrom select switches - Saw, Sq, Pw
going through VCF constantly."

via this auction, also on Reverb

"Excellent physical condition. All keys work. The rightmost key is a bit tight. Functionally, almost everything works. For some reason, the arpeggiator in several modes plays only three notes instead of four. Obviously, the synthesizer needs to be serviced and tuned. I sell it as it is, because I can not compare with a fully serviceable device.

Once again, there are several technical issues that require expert inspection. But the synthesizer works, the modes are switched, the pitch shifter is ideal, the potentiometers work, the external state is perfect.
