"Manfred Fricke's first 'synth' synth, if I got my MFB history right -- and it's a home run right off the bat. I may have gotten two baseball metaphors mixed up there, but this little monster can make a BIG sound with its 2 [digital?] VCO's, 1 modulator, 1 VCF and 2 ADSRs, one for each VC – OMG it's a giant Suzuki, and it's well it's a synth, so it will move insured via registered mail, which should be fast enough. Besides, by the time it arrives this piece of synth history will have increased 3% in value, probably, maybe.

TL;DR: Cool synth, cool sounds, dressed in black, with a Euro PSU and original faxed or poorly photo-copied manual in German. Very cool, rules the school. If I still smoked, it would be smoking my cigarettes. Now it's just drinking my beer. Don't worry, it can hold its drink. I think. Okay I was lying about the drinking beer part. I'm drinking the beer. Things are as they should be, for now. Bye."

  1. The oscillators are digital not analog. I bought one at NAMM 20 years ago and I thought it was just a bum unit. I opened it up and it’s digital. They were sold at $300 20 years ago.
