Cheetah MS6 Vintage 80s Analog 6 Voice Multitimbral Poly Synth

Pic of the inside below.

"Vintage 80s analogue polysynth, handbuilt in Cardiff!

Six dual oscillator voices from Curtis CEM chips.

Two oscillators per voice, 24dB filter, 2x ADSRs, LFO, PWM, Sync, 6-voice Poly, Velocity sensitive, up to 6-part multitimbral.. pretty comprehensive in a 1 unit rack and sounds good too!

Editing is straightforward from the front panel, though you won't be reading them from the top surface once it's racked! I'm sure there's editing software too, or an external box such as the Kiwi controller (which has an MS6 template) would make this a dream to use. Latest v.9.0 Cheetah OS too.

Very nice condition for an MS6 and fully working. Only noticeable marks are around the rack ears, and you don't see those once racked up. Very clean inside too. I replaced the battery last year and it still has the factory presets in it, have just used a couple of the string/ synth pads really. Have tested it edits and saves new sounds, however. You have 5 banks of ROM presets and another 2 for user patches."
