siel cruise“Up for sale is a Siel Cruise Vintage String Synthesizer Mono Poly Keyboard Rare. This item is in good condition and please refer to the pics for more detail. There are 3 slider caps that are missing but that doesn’t change the functionality of the synthesizer. The monophonic portion of this synthesizer works when the keyboard is split and when it is being used as a full keyboard. The polyphonic portion of this synthesizer also works when the keyboard is split and for when using all the keys. All keys work and all the sliders work.” Link

“SIEL CRUISE ANALOG VINTAGE KEYBOARD SYNTHESIZER Classic 80′s synth in great condition. Owned by me from new. I won’t list the full specification as I’ll assume that if you’re looking for one of these, you already know it. Tested and in full working condition apart from 1 missing selector slider on Trumpet (MONO synth section) as detailed below. If you look at the pictures in the order they’re shown, these are the parts that are missing:- 2nd picture -shows missing ‘top’ on the Vibrato On/Off slider AND a missing selector slider on Trumpet (MONO synth section) AND a missing red indicator insert on the Clarinet slider top. 3rd picture – again shows 2 of the same ones as shown in 2nd picture i.e. same missing selector slider as in picture 2 on the Trumpet (MONO synth section) AND the same missing red indicator insert on the Clarinet slider top. 4th picture – shows missing ‘top’ on the Trombone slider (POLY synth section) 5th picture – shows missing ‘top’ on the Vibrato Speed slider (MONO CONTROLS section) …………………………….. Original instruction manual is included. The reason for selling is because I no longer play it.” Link

“SIEL CRUISE SYNTHESIZER

This is a vintage Siel Cruise Mono / Poly Synthesizer from the early-to-mid 1980s.

I have limited knowledge of synthesizers and limited musical knowledge but I have described the synthesizer below in as much detail as I can. I have tested it as well as I am able and have commented on any problems that I found. I have added a couple of web links which show more information and a demo about the Siel Cruise.

Description
The synthesizer has both mono and poly functions.
The keyboard has four octaves.
The power on/off switch and fuse are located on the back of the instrument together with various connections. The controls and functions are grouped in three sections on the top of the instrument. These are all listed below.
There are two small metal/rubber feet on the bottom which fold out for use.” Link

” Selling this Italian robust analog synth. Actually, 2 synths in one! (Siel Mono and Siel Orchestra 1) which can be played simultaneously or separately. Technically, the synth is in tune and all the parameters are functional but it needs some cleaning to make it 100%. Cosmetically, as you can see on the photo all the caps are missing but it doesn’t affect the functionality. The shipping is more expensive because the synth is quite heavy.” Link

“The Siel is in great used condition, everything works as it should, though some of the throw switches are missing their little plastic covers, but this in no way affects the functionality of the instrument.

I can also include a copy of the owner’s manual which takes you through the operation of the synth, and has some nice ideas for sound settings. Sounds great, some cool leads, basses and spacey sounds from the mono section, lush pads from the Poly section, or you can combine the two. Sound wonderful with a bit of delay, reverb and chorus or phaser. These don’t come up for auction nowadays, so grab yourself a unique synth. Why am I selling? I’ve got two, the one for sale is the top Siel in the picture. ” Link

“SIEL Cruise mono / poly ORCHESTRA + analog synthesizer Ensemble

SIEL Cruise
Baujahr ca. 1980

Der Siel Cruise: Grenzgänger zwischen den monophonen und den polyphonen Synthesizern, denn er hat zwei getrennt
laufende Sektionen. Während man mit der Poly-Sektion exotische Pads liefert, kann man auf dem Mono-Bereich schöne
Soli und Bässe hinlegen.
Der Siel klingt – in der Monosektion – schön voll und böse und manchmal auch ein wenig „moogish“. Die Polysektion
ist dagegen sanfter und wärmer. Beide Sektionen können gelayert oder gesplittet werden.
Auch wenn das Plastik-Äußere etwas anderes verspricht: der Cruise ist robust gebaut und mit leckeren Innereien versehen:
Zwei Stimmen (2-fach multitimbral), 2 Oszillatoren, Tiefpassfilter, 2 LFO, 2 Envelopes (AD/ADSR).
Wer sich im Netz mal ein wenig umschaut, der findet auch den Sequential Circuits Fugue. Der wurde von SCI entwickelt
und von SIEL gebaut. Er sieht aus, wie der Cruise und ist vermutlich sogar baugleich.
Soweit ich weiß, wurde der Siel Cruise nicht von namhaften Musikern gespielt. Aber was nicht ist, kann noch werden.
Das Zeug hat der Cruise in jedem Fall.
Wer die Nase voll hat von den überteuerten bekannteren Zeitgenossen und mal einen exotischen, gut klingenden
Monosynthesizer spielen will, der sollte sich einen Cruise gönnen.

Zustand:
Guter optische Zustand, technisch funktioniert alles, kein Rauschen, Brummen, kratzende Potis etc.. Taster haben keinen Hänger.
Sämtliche Bedienelemente, Lämpchen funktionieren einwandfrei.” Link

“Sie bieten auf einen gut erhaltenen Synthesizer der italienischen Marke SIEL.
Das Gerät (Baujahr 1981) befindet sich technisch und optisch in einem guten Gebrauchtzustand.
Trotzdem gibt es folgende Mängel:
- zwei kleine Aufkleber auf dem Gehäuse und teilweise abgewetzte Beschriftung (siehe Bilder)
- der Pitch Bend Hebel fehlt (lässt sich z.B. durch eine Schraube ersetzen)
- an einem Hebel fehlt die Kunststoffkappe (braucht man nicht unbedingt)
- die Volume-Potis kratzen etwas (reinigen oder Potispray)
- der Poti für „Brass attack/cut off“ reagiert nicht (nicht so entscheidend, da genug andere Sounds zur Verfügung stehen – vor allem im MONO-BEREICH)” Auction ended. Click here to browse on eBay.

“This is a Siel Cruise which has been in my possession since 2002 (found in a Cash Converters, no less) and which unfortunately found little use from myself, partly due to the lack of CV interface and partly due to the fact that I have never lived in a place where I can have it set up permanently (it is a metre long and 14kg). However, in putting together sounds and doing research for this auction, I have found that it is quite capable with a really nice string sound (a la Solina), an interesting piano and a unique little monosynth part. I also added a mod to the monosynth part that adds extra harmonics to the sound.

Siel were an Italian company in the eighties, and from what little information I can find about it, the Cruise appears to be a union of the Siel Mono and the Siel Orchestra II. Plenty of specific information can be found here but some of the interesting features I want to point out are: the full polyphony on the poly section, the mono and poly sections can be played in unison and there is an option for a keyboard split as well, and the outputs include a mono+poly and poly only output. The LFO on the mono section is a little unusual in that it works after a short delay (this is by design, I should add).” Auction ended. Click here to browse on eBay.

“DATING BACK TO THE EARLY TO MID 1980′S. THIS IS A RARE AND UNIQUE KEYBOARD WITH LIMITED BUT EXQUISITE MONO AND POLY ANALOG SOUNDS. IT HAS A MONO FUNCTION SELECTOR WITH LOADS OF GREAT SONIC POSSIBILITIES ESPECIALLY BASS ONES AND ALSO A GREAT POLY SECTION THAT HAS SOME AMAZING KEYBOARD AND ORGAN SOUNDS AS WELL AS INCREDIBLE STRING SOUNDS. IT’S STRING SECTION HAS THE EXACT CIRCUITRY OF THE ARP QUARTET SO YOU GET THIS GREAT STRING MACHINE AS WELL AS A HOST OF WONDERFUL AND WACKY POLY AND MONO ANALOG SOUNDS ALL IN ONE GREAT LOOKING OLD SCHOOL SYNTH. THIS HAS NO DIGITAL ELEMENTS OR DISPLAYS SO IF YOUR HOPING FOR 1000′S OF PRESETS AND SAVE FUNCTIONS YOUR GOING TO BE DISAPPOINTED. IF YOU ARE LOOKING FOR A REALLY RARE AND INTERESTING VINTAGE KEYBOARD WITH ONE OFF SOUNDS AND A BUILT IN ARP QUARTET HOWEVER THEN THIS IS FOR YOU. TRUST ME THERE ARE REALLY NOT MANY OF THESE ABOUT. IT IS WORKING WELL AND ALL THE BUTTONS AND SLIDERS ARE WORKING FINE. IT DOES HAVE A SMALL PLASTIC SECTION MISSING BETWEEN THE TOP KEY AND THE OUTER CASING (AS IS DETAILED IN PICTURE 4) AND SOME OF THE CASING IS MISSING SCREWS MAKING IT SLIGHTLY LOOSE IN AREAS. NONE OF THIS IS FUNDAMENTAL TO ITS STRUCTURE HOWEVER AND IS COMMON IN SYNTHS OF THIS AGE. IT IS PERFECTLY TRANSPORTABLE- HAVE GIGGED IT ROUND EUROPE AND ITS NEVER LET ME DOWN. ” Auction ended.

” I have for sale a Siel Cruise analog synthesizer.
Made in Italy @ 1983.
It was given to me by someone who didn’t need it and heard I make music. I only use software instruments…
I don’t know much about vintage synthesizers.
I switched it on to test it. Keys seem to work ok and there is sound coming out at the outputs. I can not fully test this machine.
Cosmetically is in ok condition for it’s age.
Please be aware that this item is sold as it is! ” Auction ended. Click here to browse on eBay.
