The Voice of Saturn, Analog Sequencer Vintage Synth 10 step CV Gate Synthesizer

via this auction

Pics of the inside below.

"Vintage Voice of Saturn Analog 10 step sequencer. Early version by Travis Thatcher. Neat old thing I have had for a while. Works fine except #9 in the sequence. The LED doesn't light up and CV output is weak on #9. A weird glitchy analog quirk, fine if you don't mind a hitch in your step or some funk in your rhythm. I have always just used it as it is, part of its charm I think. There are schematics on the web if you wanted to trouble shoot it. Not too many of these around."

Firmware is available and recommended to download for all the users:

Release notes v.2.00: 29.12.2021

- CV modulation matrix added: 4 assignable CV inputs to various sequencer parameters: pattern shift, semitone and octaves offset, shuffle, ratchets, slide, gate length, CV to CC values and pattern change. Assign via TEMPO - E/ext. cv
- scales added. Selected via TEMP - N - PATT selects preset scales, TRANSPOSE-/+ selects the root note. Pressing any of the keys adds/removes them from the scale.
- TAP tempo button can be disabled in menu via TEMPO - M - C to not accidentally press it during the performance and change the tempo via: TEMPO - M - C (on/off).
- during the live pattern select shut off the key LEDs because sometimes when they overlap the patterns you can load wrong project
- pattern live mode in lock mode - changes the patterns now is sync tight
- various JSON parser fixes
- in live pattern select mode TAP also selects another project instead LAST STEP but after new project loaded it returns back to live pattern mode
- F/mod. menu improved. LAST STEP button enables smoothing/stepped modulation output
- fully rewritten manual with all v2 firmware features:"
