"Made in Italy, circa 1979.

I first came across this synth after hearing Adrian Utley of Portishead fame raving about it in the below YouTube video from 2008. It’s a lush poly synth and fat mono synth in one and sounds fabulous. The synth was used extensively on Portishead’s album Third (see “The Rip” and the John Carpenter-esque outro of “Machine Gun” in particular).

Totally nails Solina string ensemble as well as John Carpenter-esque sounds, but on top of that you have a bunch of great poly synth sounds and a tweakable monosynth with very fat sounding filters. (Add a dash of effects and this thing really comes alive.) The below AnalogAudio1 videos are great examples."
