Peley Krane FaithState #3 / Extremely Rare Synthesizer

SN 03 via this auction

See this post for a demo and a warnging. I didn't think any were made. As always be careful. These are the first pics I've seen of one in the flesh.

"Excellent condition, cool, extremely rare and out of production . I believe this is one of two units that were actually built and shipped!

Unit #1 (Prototype), #2 (unknown/unheard), #3 (This Unit). Comes with Power Adapter, and assorted patching cables (see pictures).

Video does Not depict unit being sold here, it is only for you to have a general idea of its capabilities. I will provide the 8 Patching Template Images via message after purchase.

It’s a 12 voice modular synthesizer system built into a wooden case. It doesn’t appear to be bound by the rules of Eurorack, Moog or Buchla, the FaithState has its own thing going on. And I’m pretty sure it’s a digital thing with an analogue front end.
The synthesis combines the oscillator, VCA and mixer into a single “Digital Voice Unit”. The sound is sourced from a library of over 500 waveforms, split into 85 groups of 6 waveforms each. 2 of these 6-voice wave sets can be mixed, blended and tuned against each other. The resultant output emerges from 3 identical control channels that have inputs for pitch, amplitude and wave blend.

The other generators include a classic Dual Slope generator with controls for Range and Origin. There’s a dual 4 stage voltage bank that can store 8 voltages with various ways of clocking, shuffling, selecting and addressing. And another single row of 4 elsewhere with added clocking controls. A “Giv-Trig” provides 5 asynchronous timers reaching 7 gate/triggers. A sample-and-hold circuit. The Slope Mini is a compact version of the triangle function generator modulation source. The multi-mode filter rounds off the sound shaping. And the front and centre are these 3 spinning wheels of multiples for tripling up your signals and controls."
