Description: Programmable Polyphonic Synthesizer
Information:
                                    1)	Six separately articulated voices offer full polyphonic
playing.

2)	Two Digital-Controlled Oscillators (DCO) per voice
provide rich, thick 'detuned' sounds and parallel interval
effects. The us« of DCOs ensures outstanding pitch stability.

3)	Digital Access Control system provides digital pushbutton
control over each program parameter using the large,
easy-to-read 6-digit display. The Poly-6Ps D.A.C. system
results in highly accurate sound recall, repeatability and
excellent playability, with a minimum front panel "duller".

4)	64 different programs with fingertip access. Full editing
capabilities allow programs to be edited temporarily or
permanently. Programs may be rearranged into any desired
performance order.

5)	Eight-second Tape Interface allows many sets of programs
lo be rapidly Saved and Loaded from a tape, creating an
infinite "Sound Library’*, The large "prompting"
alphanumeric display gives complete information about tape
operations. Operation is so fast and easy that all 64
programs can be changed live between songs.

6)	Program Up input jack lets you change programs in
sequence without taking your hands off the Keyboard. This
jack accepts "switch triggers" from a foots witch or other
external sources.

7)	Chord Memory lets you play parallel harmonies using only
one key, and also provides thick Unison soloing and bass
sounds. Hold mode provides continuous sound after you take
your hands off the keyboard.

8)	Full-function Arpeggiator with Latch mode memorizes and
sequences both notes and chords, and can be synchronized
with an external sequencer or rhythm machine.

9)	Release Pedal input jack allows the programmed Release
time to be extended using a convenient footswitch, for
natural "sustaining" effects.
