“Elka Synthex Rev2 with factory Midi – Stunning sound!

All works perfectly. She was serviced just over a year ago and a number of logic chips replaced by Kent at KSR, so everything works perfectly and all filters are in sync. It’s circa 1986, so some age-related cosmetics, but very clean panel with no dents or scratches. Just picked up a CS80, so need the space!” Click here to visit listing on eBay

“In that time it has sat in my studio at home and has been well looked after. It has a few minor chips and scratches on the woodwork. (What you would expect from an instrument that is over 30 years old.) But it is in perfect working order.

This model has built in MIDI (not the break out box version). The MIDI implementation is basic, but it works. It is currently set to CH1. ” Click here to visit listing on eBay

“Utra-rare first run Elka Synthex – often incorrectly (per Mario Maggi) referred to as “PROTOTYPE”, 1 of first 50 made. I asked Mr. Maggi himself, the creator of Synthex about my “PROTOTYPE”. Here’s his reply (sic):

“Your Synthex is not a prototype, it is one rare unit of the first production run of 50 piecies. One difference concern the four voice boards were 3 trimmers was installed for each voice calibrations.

Then you have 6 trimmer on each board. For successive production 2 more trimmer was added for each voice, for a total of 10 trimmer on each voice board.

There are also minor differences on few resistences, resulting
in a slight warmer sound according to some users.”

There are some other differences, such as the wooden case not having ELKA logo, no serial number, and no holes on the sides for the keyboard stand. ” Click here to visit listing on eBay

synthex “For sale is a rare Elka Synthex analog polysynth.
This is a later model with MIDI in/out/thru.
100% fully functional. Everything is working as it should.
The only issue worth mentioning is a few of the buttons are a little sticky, but they are easy to unstick and it doesn’t effect the performance because they still activate as they should (a little lube might easily fix this). Also there is some tuning/calibration needed when using in stacked double memory/preset mode. In normal mode or panel-double mode it works just as it should. A normal tuning/calibration procedure should cure this issue, I can provide a a technical manual via pdf.
It’s a 220v but for USA buyers I will include a 110v to 220v step up transformer for free if needed.
Cosmetically it shows some wear. The front panel is in nice shape but the wood sides, corners and bottom show numerous dings/scratches/chips. Check out the detailed pictures to make sure you like it.
Demo video available, message me if interested.

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. The built in chorus is fantastic, and the sequencer section is fun as well. In my opinion sounds fatter than vintage synths like the Moog Memorymoog or SCI Prophet 5 & second only to perhaps the Yamaha CS80. ” Click here to visit listing on eBay

Elka, Synthex @ 06 December 2016, Comments Off on Elka Synthex

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. ” Click here to visit listing on eBay

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.” Click here to visit listing on eBay
