Oberheim Four Voice FVS 1 w\ Hans Zimmer Autograph SN 0085

via this auction

"Ultra rare vintage polyphonic analog synthesizer signed by the maestro himself, Hans Zimmer!

Serial Number 0085.

Polyphony: 4 voices Oscillators: 8 VCO's (2 per voice) with sawtooth or variable-pulse waveforms LFO: LFO with triangle wave only Filter: Low, band, high, notch filter w/ resonance VCA: 2 ADR envelopes Keyboard: 49 keys Control: CV / Gate Date Produced: 1975-1979

Four dual-oscillator SEM modules are the heart of this legendary instrument originally built in 1976. Create huge bass, leads and pads dripping in unique character. All keys, voices, oscillators, and filters work and sound amazing. There is some minor cosmetic damage on the case exterior. This unit has the Polyphonic Synthesizer Programmer, which was an early attempt at saving and recalling programs. From what I understand, even with the Programmer, you still have to manually dial in your patch, and it's certainly not required to play and create incredible sounds on this synth. It appears to have been serviced by the previous owner. Tuning tracking holds steady, occasionally requires a minor tweak. Pots sounds clean, very little if any scratchiness."
