1976 Oberheim Four Voice FVS-1 SN 0633

via this auction

"Legendary king of analogue synths. Four SEMS plus a master control, memory programmer, expression section, and output module with level and pan per voice. Switchable CV/Gate has been added per module.

This Four Voice has been babied all its life, it's fully functional and in great condition. I am only the second owner since 1976 and it has been carefully looked after.

It sounds immense, lush, and amazing. If you had this patched out by a tech you'd have a modular that exceeded a Moog 55 in sonic capabilities. You can use it as four monosynths, or you can put it in split mode and play a bass and three voice chords, or anything in between. The true state variable filters are remarkable in polyphonic mode.

It was way, way ahead of its time and is probably the most beautiful and refined sounding synth I've ever heard. Imagine a Matrix 12 crossed with an OB-Xa on steroids and you only just begin to get the idea."
