Siel CTS-2000, just a few sounds passing by...

Published on May 26, 2019 [ጠσσǥǥሃ]

"Another rare and atypical machine: the Siel CTS 2000. (Usually called Keytek)
Italian hybrid synth from 1987, using sort of wavetables...
A mix of Ensoniq and PPG Wave, under an Emulator II/DX7 interface!
It sounds really weird, and it's pretty complicated to use :)
Wavetables are generated by 2 really cheap SGS M114A, and the filters are CEM 3389 (Sequential Circuits Prophet VS, Studio 440, Waldorf Microwave 1, Ensoniq Esq-1, SQ80...)
The whole thing runs under a TMS-7002, that is almost enough powerful to make transients (Often goes not smooth and sometimes there are 'Plops' in the sound)"
