RedSound DarkStar XP2 - 8 voice / 5 part VA polysynth SN 00733

via this auction

"This is the “mk2” version with 2 pairs of 1/4” outs and external input, running OS ROM 1.11 as shown.

Totally ingenious synth and interface.
Each of the 5 parts can be assigned its own instrument specific demo pattern (baseline, lead, percussion, etc). You can pan each part and audition them from the front panel.

Filters are some of the gooiest early 2000s and tone is full of character even if not all the presets are your thing.

Almost every feature is available immediately from dedicated controls or a shift function. Most of the shift functions are on the panel but a handful take a peek in the manual before they become 2nd nature."
