Logan Vocalist - Analogue Choir Synthesizer from 1979, Italy 🎹

Published on Mar 21, 2020 Reuben Jones

Elka Synthex, DSI/Sequential Tempest, and Octave Kitten featured as well.

"The Logan Vocalist, by Logan Electronics, 1979, Italy.

The Logan Vocalist is an analogue synthesizer designed to mimic the sound of a polyphonic choir and the solo human voice. Evocative vocal-like sounds are made using a mixture of hard-synced oscillators, analogue filtering, and ensemble and vibrato effects.

There isn't a lot of information on this rare and interesting synth, and the schematics are the only documents I can find. If anyone has more information, including the A3 folded manual that Peter Forrest mentions in his A-Z book, please let me know!

Join 'Sintetizzatori Vintage Italiani' and 'VSMIproject Vintage Synthesizers Made in Italy', both on Facebook to see more Italian synthesizers.

Also, visit to find out about the Italian synthesizer exhibition in Macerata, Italy.

Thanks to Keith Kniveton at Lucid Sound, and to Dani Wilson at Hideaway Studios.

All music by me, except for
02:29 - 03:17 : Non si Sevizia un Paperino by Riz Ortolani, used in the Italian giallo movie Don't Torture a Duckling, 1972;


03:17 - 03:48 : L'Alba dei Morti Viventi by Goblin, used in the movie Dawn of the Dead, 1978.

Thanks for watching!
