via this auction"For your consideration is this cool and very rare 360 Systems Slave Driver guitar synthesizer controller interface. This is one of the first units to allow a guitar player to access all of the sounds and sequences typically only available to the synthesizer world. With this unit, a guitar player is able to hook up a guitar to a CV input synthesizer using this controller. You simply run the Slave Driver between your guitar and your synthesizer and you are able to produce and manipulate all of the sounds on your synth with your guitar. This unit is great for any experimental guitar or synth player alike and a must have for the synthesizer collector. These units are extremely rare, and 360 systems equipment is very collectible. It does not include a guitar pickup." Update: see this post for the Frank Zappa connection.

KORG Polysix

via this auction"Korg Polysix (61 keys) from 1981 in good condition. This is a true analog piece that sounds original. The Polysix has warm-sounding real analog oscillators, softer and brassy-er sounding that the Juno. Engage the built-in Chorus on a simple single-oscillator sawtooth patch and you were pretty darned close to that expensive Prophet sound. But the big ace in the Polysix's hand was the Ensemble effect. Instant Mellotron-like strings. 6 voice polyphony, 1 VCO per voice (saw, PW, PWM) + 1 sub-oscillator per voice, 1 LFO assignable to VCA,VCF or VCO. Chorus, phaser and ensemble effect. Really good Arpeggiator (Up, Down, Up/Down, Latch; Full, 2-oct, 1-oct; rate 0.2 to 20 Hz)"

KORG Poly-800

via this auction where you'll find more images."The Korg Poly-800 is a programmable synthesizer released by Korg in 1983.Comparable to the Roland Juno and in many ways better, the Poly-800 is an 8 voice polyphonic analog synthesizer with 64 memory patches and up to 50 editable parameters!There's also a stereo chorus effect, a sequencer, and a weird joystick used to adjust pitch, modulation and the filter.There is a double mode in which the oscillators double up making 4 fat voices of polyphony.The Poly-800 could be run off batteries and had guitar strap pegs, allowing a performer to wear it like a guitar.It is because Poly-800 was only 13 lbs."Note the Poly-800 shares one filter across all voices, whereas others have one filter per voice. Where this comes into play is when you assign modulation to the filter such as an ENV. Instead of the modulation running independently for each key pressed it is shared across all keys.
