'Ode to Trevor Marshall'

Monte Carlo

"Thought I'd put togther a little tune to show off the sounds of this mega synth.
This is the second 5600 I've owned, the first I sold after reparing it some years ago and quickly regretted selling it. When another one came up for sale I bought it and then spent ages fixing lots of little faults, including an original design error on the LFO. Now it's working perfectly.
The synth is controlled by midi from a midi to CV converter. The CV has to be exponential but the on-board exponential converter does not produce totally clean output, so I made my own converter which runs off batteries.
All the sounds are from the synth, except the drums. I added basic FX: chorus, phaser, reverb and echo to the parts.

BTW, Trevor Marshall is the genius who created this classic synth."
