via this auction

"Overall in very good condition, this Crumar Composer has been fully tested and is 100% functional. All pots, switches, and faders have been fully sprayed out with DeOxit electric cleaner. There are minor corrosion spots on the unit and signs of use. Please see photos.

The Crumar Composer is an analog paraphonic synthesizer. It has thick sound and combines 5 instruments which are a solo synth, a poly synth, an organ and strings. In the solo synth section there are 5 waveforms to choose from. It can be mixed with the poly synth to create a 3 oscillator instrument. The string section also has a Leslie speaker Bucket Brigade effect.
It also has a breath controller input where you just connect a tube and you can modulate the vca and vcf. it also has what is called touch vibrato in the mono synth section which is created by using you finger on the touch vibrato control.
The unit also offers pitch and modulation wheels for the other synth sections. Interestingly the Composer uses the same CEM chip to VCA, filters and envelope as the Memorymoog, Oberheim OBX, OBXa/OB8, SCI Prophet 5.Less than 400 units were produced by Crumar."
