Sequential Circuits Split-Eight 

The Split-Eight is an awesome programable polyphonic synthesiser which uses the Curtis 3394 SENTE chips. The keyboard features splits and layers, all of which can be saved with patch data. Choose between 8 voice polyphony with 1 oscillator per voice, 4 voice polyphony with dual oscillators per voice, 2 voice polyphony with a mega 4 oscillators per voice, or the unison mode which is just a fat 8-voice solo. This synth is a great and inexpensive way to get your hands on a user friendly, vintage, 8 voice polysynth for your professional or home studio.
