split eight “Cleaning out the studio a bit now that I have some new gear. This Split was my go-to synth for many years, it’s a really great sounding piece of gear. I just replaced the memory battery, so if you’re interested in the factory patches, you’ll have to reload them (easily done from a google search). Fully functional and in great shape overall. Plays well, sounds great. Enjoy this beast!” Link

split-eight“This an great, underrated synth. Chances are you know that if you’re looking at this listing. I just don’t have room for it anymore.

It was recently serviced to replace some sticky keys and everything was looked over. All voices are running fine. It’s in perfect, working condition.

One thing to know that “normal” behavior is a bit odd on this synth. When only one channel is active the voices are split across every other key. Maybe that’s part of the reason for the name Split-Eight? Anyway, it threw me for a curve the first time I tried it so I wanted to pass that info on. It’s not a design flaw or a problem with this unit, it’s just the way it’s supposed to be.” Link

split-eight ” Up for sale is a sequential circuits Split-Eight Synthesizer. Works great, takes about 5-10 minutes to stay in tune, after that it is good to go! Cosmetically it is in very good condition, one key has a cigarette burn though. It has been modified for 2 AA batteries to store the memory for easy and solder-less replacement. There are 8 voices which can be split and layered. The layers are amazing and my favorite part of this synth. Really warm and complex sounds, you can even modulate the filter of one layered sound with the output of the first! Its called Poly-Mod. The midi implementation is very basic, but it does support sysex patch dumps. All the factory presets have been re-installed. Another thing to mention is that the front panel LEDs flicker lightly sometimes, seemingly randomly. It does not affect the functionality whatsoever.” Link

” 1 used Sequential Circuits Split 8 Synthesizer, fully functional, all original. There are no saved presets. The wooden sides panels were damaged during a move so that they are split for roughly the length of a key. The cracked portion is still firmly in place, does not effect the function of the synthesizer at all, and could very easily be repaired/replaced by some handy individual. There is a purely superficial surface scratch, visible in pictures three and eight. There are numerous minor surface scratches on the bottom, visible in picture 9. With those cosmetic blemishes in consideration, this machine is still remarkably well preserved. Thanks!” Link

“Hello
This auction is for a Sequential Circuits Split 8 synthesizer in nice condition

This Split-8 synthesizer has been used in our personal studio.

All the buttons, keys and voices work nicely and the patches sound wonderfully warm and vintage.
It’s easy to layer patches and it sounds so fat, lush, and overall incredible especially when played at 2 VCO’s per voice.

Cosmetically there are some areas to take note of. There is some visible rust in areas where the paint has chipped and a larger area of rust that is under the right side of the keybed (see photo). The left endcheek has a split in the wood that goes all the way across and through but it still feels like it’s held on there. The paint on the endcheeks has worn off at the edges. The keys have accumulated some light scratches over the years that is typical of a synthesizer of this age.

Other than the cosmetic flaws noted, this Split-8 is in good shape and appears to have been cared for despite a period of neglect.
It still looks good in my opinion however you can carefully view the photos to get a good idea and judge for yourself.” Link

“Up for sale is the popular SEQUENTIAL CIRCUITS SPLIT-8 vintage analog synthesizer.

The unit appears to be working fine to the best of my knowledge, as I went through some basic testing. I noticed one of the white keys (1A) wasn’t reacting too well when pressed and it sometimes skip sound, which I guess could do with some simple adjusting/servicing. Please note I’m not a technician at these and I may have not tested every function.

Cosmetically the unit is in very nice condition as you can see. There are some minor signs of wear and marks here and there, but nothing major. I’m including plenty of pictures so you can see exactly how it looks.

Power cable included.
Sold as is.” Link

” Up for sale a very cool Sequential Circuits Split-8 Synthesizer, in nice cosmetic condition, it has couple small scratches , but it is fully functional also has a new battery, the patches are mine but you can make your own if you don’t like them, it is really easy to program a patch, needles to say I actually like it better than the Roland Juno 106, because you can split this synth in two so it’s like having two synths in one, The keyboard features splits and layers like I said , all of which can be saved with patch data. ” Link

“SEQUENTIAL CIRCUITS SPLIT EIGHT ANALOG SYNTHESIZER

Used in good working condition.

Display is bright, all audio outputs and midi work as they should. No missing knobs or broken keys. Pitch bend and mod wheels function perfect. Auto tunes itself upon boot as it should.

This is REAL analog and its fat and raw.

Great for those Rick Wakeman leads, 1980′s synth basses and other numerous sounds like effects and percussion.

Whats great about the Split Eight is that you can SPLIT or LAYER sounds something you could not do on a Six Trak or even Prophet 5. Plus it has Midi!

Unit is USED so please do not expect something that came out of a box. This is from the 1980s and has seen some use. Has a few scratches but nothing major.” Auction ended. Click here to browse on eBay.

” Sequential Circuits Split 8 in GREAT condition. Everything works as expected and cosmetically it is in excellent condition.

The Split 8 is a great sounding synth and features 8 voices, the ability to play two sounds at once, with split or layer, and of course MIDI!

It is somehow not as popular as the Six Trak despite an almost identical architecture. And it is superior in a number of ways.

Most importantly, it has more voices, but mainly it is because it is much easier to program than the Six Trak.
The Split 8 has a well set up program matrix printed on the top panel. It’s really easy to jump around to different
parameters and make changes. I owned the Six Trak, and although it was fully multi-timbrel, I can’t imagine
ever wanting to use 6 different sounds from it. It just wouldn’t happen. But I can totally see using 2 sounds, or layering
2 sounds to get a nice phat pad, or splitting the keyboard to use two different sounds, and having individual volume control
over each part is super flexible. And in unison mode it is HUGE.” Auction ended. Click here to browse on eBay.

“Up for auction is a not entirely functioning Sequential Circuits Split-Eight synthesizer. It powers on, but the keyboard doesn’t appear to be communicating with the other circuitry in the correct way. Some of the controls have approximately correct response, but this thing is in general disrepair and will likely need some kind of service overhaul. It is sold for parts, or not fully working. AS-IS!

It is also missing one rubber button (front panel, pictured) and one key has a chip in it (also pictured).” Auction ended. Click here to browse on eBay.

” Serial 02825 . A really nice looking specimen. As you may know these are an 8 voice analog synthesizer. As far as I know the most affordable 8 voice with real vco’s . (It uses the CEM3394 as I recall ‘synth on a chip’ which integrates the vcf and vco and vca into the same longer chip. Instruments like the six trak, multi-trak, and Akai AX60 also use this) They can be, as the name indicates, split but also layered in 4 voices so that the poly mod feature can be used in a more limited way than on prophets. But still some great sounds are achievable and HEY…it’s an 8 voice! :-) The digital envelopes of all the later machines make them a little less valuable but used within the limitations some really sweet sounds can be gotten. A better synth to edit than some with the encoder knob because the parameters are panel selected. I got all the switches working swell with my contact disks! I’ll test it before it goes out to make sure everything is still 100% after setting around a while. That’s always the acid test :-) Those carbon contacts like to be used. ” Auction ended.

“You’re looking at a Sequential Circuits Split-Eight synthesizer. It is in good physical shape with no chips in they keys. All of the keys function with no missing notes. I don’t know really how to operate this board, so as far as I can tell the only thing wrong with it is that the pitch and mod wheel aren’t functioning. Some of the buttons to access the oscillators and wave forms don’t appear to function either. If you’re looking for that vintage synth sound, this is one of the early ones that are being emulated today.” Auction ended. Click here to browse on eBay.

I don’t have the time, knowledge or money to put into it so it is being sold “AS IS” for parts or repair.
