syntexThe Synthex is a very lush sounding classic analog 8 voice synthesizer. Later versions implemented basic MIDI functions. It has 30 knobs, 6 sliders, 80 switches and a joystick. Powerful sounds with 2 oscillators per note, separate envelope generators, chorus and even a sequencer! The use of stable DCO’s (digitally controlled analog oscillators) and oscillator cross modulation of Pulse Width and a multimode filter made it unique in its time.

There is a cool joystick that replaces traditional pitch/mod wheels and allows for greater variable real-time control over the two LFOs, oscillator and filter modulation. The 6 sliders beside the joystick assign what (LFO, osc and filter) goes to the joystick. Voices can also be layered or split across the keyboard. Other great features include the onboard digital Ring-Modulator, Chorus effect and Dual or Layer modes available. And also a four-track sequencer rounds out this synths host of features. Two of it’s tracks can output MIDI data.

This is just an extremely good analog and unique synth excellent for pads, drones and glistening lead sounds. ”

elka “Here’s the rare chance you’ve been waiting for!
Legendary Elka Synthex analog polysynth.

What makes this one special:
117v power set for USA, very rare since most of these are European set 220v.
This is an early unit serial number 705 (I believe they started at 700 so if that’s true then this is the 5th one built).

Functional: 100% fully functional. Everything is working as it should, performs superbly. All keys trigger perfectly, the keyboard plays smoothly, pots are scratchy free and turn easily and smooth.

Cosmetics: Besides a few minor nicks in the wood, the front panel and internal electronics look mint like new shape. What’s so incredibly is that is looks like it was never even touched or played, and most likely kept unused sitting in its case all these years. Take a look at the detailed pictures below including the internal pictures to make sure you like it. The internals look perfect like new with no layers of grim or dust, and the panel graphics are crisp and easy to read without finger smudges or wear. This Synthex has not been abused and used with rust and dying parts like you might find on other old synths, this is a gem ready to last another 40 years!

Sound: The Synthex one of the legendary great polysynths with huge thick analog pads. So warm and creamy. The build quality is incredible, big knobs & high quality wood. The sound is amazing, huge lush analog awesomeness. In my opinion sounds better than a SCI Prophet 5 & as a polysynth second only to perhaps the Yamaha CS80. ” Link

synthex “One of the last things to sell, part of a studio move, pains my heart greatly. Serviced, cleaned and PSU recapped a little over a year ago. We have had a few Synthex(s) over the years and this by far has been the cleanest and nicest examples we have ever come across.From a smoke free, power conditioned studio.

Comes with the original stand, which is extremely rare. Looks superb and plays like no other.

The front and face are in excellent shape and the joystick is complete. Everything functions as it should.

There is some scattered wear to the wood, mainly towards the rear, nothing that made me ever want to refinish it (I am very particular about condition). Comes complete with midi expander and setup transformer for 110v use.” Link

Elka, Synthex @ 15 July 2014, Comments Off

Bei diesem Synthesizer ist der Begriff “legendär” wirklich angebracht, denn das ist er ohne Zweifel. Noch dazu ist der Synthex sehr selten. Er gehört in die Reihe der ganz großen analogen Synthesizer wie z.B. Prophet 5, Jupiter 8, Memormoog, CS80, OB8 etc. Vieles von dem, was diese Synthesizer können, kann der Synthex auch, aber er hat vor allem einen eigenständigen, mächtigen Sound, der ihn bis heute so beliebt und begehrt macht. Nicht nur Jean-Michel Jarre setzt ihn nach wie vor ein und das auch live. Der Synthex hat gegenüber manch anderen älteren Synths einen besonderen Vorteil: er ist sehr zuverlässig, robust und unempfindlich.
Ich verkaufe den Synthex nur, weil ich mein Setup deutlich verkleinere und er dafür viel zu groß ist. Diese Entscheidung ist mir nicht leicht gefallen, denn er ist einfach ein außergewöhnlich guter Synthesizer.
Das Gerät befindet sich in sehr gutem Zustand mit geringen Gebrauchsspuren (s. Originalfotos). Das Metallpanel sieht sehr gut aus. Die Holzteile des Gehäuses haben allerdings wie üblich einige Macken.
Der Synthex ist groß und schwer, deshalb sind die Versandkosten leider hoch. Selbstabholung ist natürlich möglich und empfehlenswert.

“This is a rare Elka Omb 5 (One Mad Band) Synthesizer.
A great sounding Italian synth.
The synth is in good working condition with one small exception – the high F# key is not responding.
Cosmetically, it has some signs of wear here and there, little scuffs and marks but overall in good vintage condition. Please refer to photos for condition.
Also included is the original soft bag.” Link

“Biete einen Wilgamat-1 von Elka mit rein analoger Klangerzeugung. Habe das Gerät vor einiger Zeit zum Basteln geschenkt bekommen aber nie wirklich Zeit gefunden, das Gerät ausgiebig zu testen bzw. damit bzw. daraus etwas zu basteln.

Wie auf den Fotos zu sehen ist der optische Zustand schlecht. Die Holz-Seitenteile sind teilweise gebrochen und der Boden hat leichten Rost. Technisch kann ich nicht viel dazu sagen: Wenn man ihn einschaltet leuchten die Tasten, die man drückt, verändert man den Temporegler blinkt auch die entsprechende Rythmus-LED entsprechend. Also rein optisch sollte er funktionieren, nur habe ich bei einem Schnelltest am Output kein Signal hören können.

Leider fehlen die Kappen bei den Schiebereglern und bei einem Schieberegler (Bass Volume) ist der Schieber abgebrochen. Die Tasten auf der linken Seite sind alle in Ordnung und scheinen 100%ig zu funktionieren. Ich kann gerne einen Link zu den Schaltungsunterlagen zur Verfügung stellen. ”

“Elka EK22 synthesiser

Rare 1986 successor to the Synthex.

Sounds a bit like the Matrix-6, but darker. Good for some Boards of Canada DCO type sounds… Nice chorus too.

Great condition – seems to work fine, I’ve had this in the cupboard for years. One small crack in the casing near the keybed but this does not matter and is not noticable.
It doesn’t look like it’s been used much.

It’s generally quite plasticy, fragile and quite heavy – I’d suggest you bring a car if possible when collecting.
You can demo the synth with headphones.” Link

“Up for a regrettable sale is my beautiful Elka Synthex complete with it’s original stand (very rare in itself). This is an earlier model and does not have factory fitted midi, but it can be upgraded with a break-out midi box if midi is important to you. I’ve owned this synth for nearly 10 years and it has given me a lot of pleasure. Its sound is unique and inspiring.

It comes with the original factory presets and I’ve left the other bank full of my own presets. (some real good ones in there!) Also included is a copy of the manual and schematics.

From early on in my ownership it developed a small fault, but it is intermittent and can be bypassed. Most of the recordings I have done with it have been whilst it has had this fault, but I’ve bypassed it using the method described below. However, as this has a fault I have to sell it “as is” and as requiring a repair (although it’s given me years of please even with the fault). The fault has never changed or become worse and is down to a loose connection or dirty/faulty contact.

The condition is very good, a few scuffs on the wood sides, but overall – very good, please see pics for more detail. One key has a slight clicking when depressing it but this does not interfere with the sound or triggering. Two screws are missing from the front panel (I never got round to replacing them, but shouldn’t be hard to find) ” Link

Serial Number:710
MIDI Equipped
117 Volt AC

Elka Synthex
Original Flight Case
Original Elka Stand + Stand Bag
Original A/C Cable
Original Elka Synthex Schematics (x2)
MIDI break out box
Sustain Pedal

Up for auction is this Elka Synthex in excellent condition. In some instances I’d go as far to say it is in mint condition considering it’s age.

These don’t come around too often as they only made approx. 1600-1800 of these worldwide, and are extremely rare to find second hand.

Also included is the original flight case & original triangular stand, to complete the Elka package.

Midi is installed on this unit, and midi breakout box is also provided.

It has been in kept in it’s flight case since acquired, never gigged or used for the matter.

This particular Synthex had previously been owned by a representative for Elka in Canada, and shows little to no sign of use.

All synth boards test working, and no dropped voices, or other electronic problems.

All pots, knobs, switches, keyboard, and LEDs function properly.

The only issue to highlight is 6 of the potentiometers (knobs) are a bit harder to turn than the rest.

Since they function properly, and don’t skip or crackle, I haven’t opted to spray any de-oxit or any other type of switch lubricant, and keep it entirely stock…

Ships in its flight case covered in bubble wrap, and will be double boxed.” Link

“This is a kind of a project I don’t know anything about so I leave it to the musicians who know about this. I hooked it up to a creapy old amp and there is sound. Also some “dead” keys.

For shure this one need some work so if you can not handle this, please do not bid. This is an “as found, as is” auction.. NO return.

The case is a bit rough but stil very useful. See pictures they will tell you more about the condition. The keyboard is cosmetic in pretty fair shape. As you can see on the picture two of the plastic knobs are missing, the handles work fine.” Link

Elka, Synthex @ 26 June 2012, Comments Off

:This is an original ELKA SYNTHEX polyphonic synthesizer, mostly made famous in recordings by Jean-Michel Jarre (yes, those presets are on-board). This particular Synthex is in good working order, except that it tends to crash periodically, which basically just blanks it out for a second and it forgets what patch it was on. It’s not that big of a deal, just a minor annoyance in my experience- might be more of a problem if you plan to use this beast live (I never have). Also, some of the knobs are a little hard to turn, but I imagine this is probably an easy enough mechanical issue to fix. This Synthex comes with the much-sought-after factory installed MIDI interface, which is working, though the actual midi functionality is very basic. All other functions work properly as well, including the awesome sequencer. Cosmetically it’s in quite good shape, with minor scuffs/scrapes. The interior is immaculate. Included is the original flight case, which has a few dings in it (see pics) that don’t really affect its functionality. Also included are photocopies of the user and service manuals, as well as an extra fresh battery for the patch memory, which I never got around to installing.” Link

“Elka Synthex in fantastic condition.

This Synthex looks and sounds gorgeous. It has been lovingly looked after over the years and I believe it has never gigged. I have owned it for 8 years during which time it has had a quiet studio life (smoke-free environment). Now it’s time for somebody else to enjoy this amazing instrument while I move in to a new direction.

If you’re looking for a Synthex, you know why: the rarity, the fame, the lush sound of a Yamaha CS80 without the weight and maintenance worries (and the £12k price tag…), the majesty of a Memorymoog without the unreliability and the rare parts. It is a pleasure to own and play; the Synthex has very few parts that are not easily replaced, so you are near enough guaranteed many years of enjoyment. It is also an excellent investment opportunity if you are so inclined.
This one works absolutely fine. Just before putting it up for sale, I took it to be professionally checked over: it sports a certifiably clean bill of health. I have employed James Walker to look after this machine from Day 1: he was senior engineer for Music Control before launching his own business, which vouches for the quality of his work. In the years I have owned this Synthex, it’s only needed a visit to him once before this check-up in order to replace a logic chip. This proves how reliable it is. The electronics of the Synthex offered here have been thoroughly tested. No problems were found in any of the voice cards or in any of the logic modules. The only fault found was in the 5V power supply which has now been completely revamped. As a matter of precaution, the battery for the memory has also been replaced.

As well as being 100% functional, the cosmetic condition is very good. The front panel is very clean with no dings. The only real fault is a small amount of paint rubbing in the top right as can be seen in the close-up picture – no damage to the metal. The wood-work has wear consistent with this synth’s age and use – ie only a few marks. The keys are in great condition. This is a very clean example which would delight a collector. I have a full set of high-definition pictures which I can email you if you would like to check the aesthetic aspects. Just ask… before you bid.

The serial number is 1315. It comes with factory-fitted MIDI.

It comes with a photocopied manual, a lead for British plugs and a full flight case. The case is very solid and well made. Going by the text on it, it used to hold a Jupiter 8 and at one stage toured with (Elvis?) Costello. The foam on the bottom part has been removed to provide a better fit for the Synthex. The foam in the top part is intact and provides ample protection. When in transit, the top of the joy-stick is unscrewed to prevent damage.

Because it has such a solid flight case, it can be mailed overseas, including Europe and North America. However, if you live outside Europe, please get in touch before bidding in order to finalise shipment costs. The case will be wrapped in bubble-wrap and then cardboard for extra security; the butterfly-clips will be secured with cable-ties.” Auction ended. Click here to browse on eBay.

I have a cable with it, but do not know if it is the one that interfaces with the speaker device. Does not look like it does. I do know it plugs into the Wilgamat.

“Das Gerät stammt aus einem Nachlass und wurde meines Wissens in den letzten ca. 7 Jahren nie benutzt. Von allen vorhandenen Geräten wurde nur das Piano genutzt, hier wurden einige wenige Stunden geübt. Das genaue Alter ist unbekannt.

Das Elka Gerät hat der Besitzer mal von jemandem bekommen der wohl nur gesagt hat dass es irgendwie dazu passt……
da wir aber nun alle keine Musiker sind wissen wir noch nicht mal was es ist.

Im Netz habe ich Hinweise gefunden dass es wohl ein Synthi oder ein Rhythmusgerät oder auch ein Drumcomputer sein könnte. Ob es etwas mit MIDI zu tun hat oder MIDI- fähig ist weiss ich nicht. Für weitere Hinweise bin ich sehr dankbar.” Auction ended. Click here to browse on eBay.
