Time machine: CRUMAR TRILOGY Analog Synthesizer 1981

May 18, 2012 · Posted in Uncategorized 

This is a short HQ sound demo of the Crumar Trilogy. I played it dry without any additional effects.

The Crumar Trilogy is a multi keyboard instrument / string machine from 1981. It has 3 polyphonic sections: ORGAN, SYNTHESIZER and STRING ENSEMBLE. The best about the Trilogy is the polyphonic synth section, which has 2 VCOs per voice, 24 dB filters which employ the famous SSM chips… The STRING ENSEMBLE and ORGAN sections sound somewhat cheesy, but hey, sometimes you need some vintage cheesy sounds ;-)

Very impressive looking. It has no patch memory like you might think. The Oberheim-type led buttons just recall presets.

On a Vangelis record (I don’t remember the title) you see a picture of the Trilogy.
