SEQUENTIAL CIRCUITS SIX-TRAK Analog Synthesizer 1984

March 9, 2014 · Posted in Uncategorized 

Youtube alias ‘AnalogAudio1’, takes a look at the vintage Sequential Circuits Six-Trak analog synthesizer, details below:

Synthesizer demo of the analog synthesizer SCI Six-Trak from 1984. It was the first multitimbral MIDI synth on the market (it came before Oberheim Xpander). The Six-Trak has that typical SCI and DSI hardware design – great, classic look with massive wooden end cheeks.

In this movie I play some of my own sounds – on some sounds I used a digital delay (Roland DEP-5) and reverb (Lexicon MPX-500). In the intro I used the sequencer of the Six-Trak.

The Six-Trak has 1 VCO per voice (6 voice polyphonic). It also has PWM, 3 ADSRs, 24 dB VCF, noise generator, LFO with different waveforms. It has a sort of “slimmed down polymodulation”: VCF modulation by VCO for dirty and metallic timbres. Unison mode for fat, monophonic sounds. Great “stack mode” allows layering of six different patches. The Six-Trak also has a little 6 track sequencer and an arpeggiator built in.

I like the Six-Trak very much. I would wish it had multiple outputs and a chorus effect.
