Univox Compaq 2 1970s Black

via this auction

"Here is the rare Univox Compac 2, made in Italy. Fully functional, 61 key electric keyboard.

$300 OBO

The keyboard is organized into 2 main sections:

1 - Full polyphony based on 12 discrete Squared-shape oscillators + 7X SAJ2110 a 7-stage Frequency Dividers IC

2 - Solo synth mono section with no control but volume.

Basically there is a switch that allows you to have the lower register turn into an electric “bass” which you can also route to a separate output for a bass amp.

The keyboard has a Clavinet setting, “honky tonk”, and Piano setting. Not exactly realistic piano sounds, but a very unique variation.

One of my favorite features is the built in analog phaser with adjustable speed, very psychedelic/prog.

There are 2 switches under the keys, the left is for the phaser speed, and the right is a pitch-bend."
