Had my 100F for nearly 25 years. Still going strong and I'll never part with it. Great as a noise maker and lead synth.

This is a great under estimated synth, beleave it or not, even a lot of top synth artists only until recently havent even heard of it!, In 1992 i was telling Vince Clarke about my 110f and he even did'nt hear of it which made me think 'oh... it's a crap synth'. Hey i've had this since 1985 and still and more so find it an interesting usfull tool, Quite a hard instrument at first to program (not as easy as your roland sh101 etc!) but i find you spend hours playing with all the paramiters, finding and trying to get cool sounds, very expressive and unique! Even if you are used to being a roland sh101/mc202 user, you will find it will take some time to get the sound that you want! hell some people might think this machine does'nt even work as there is so many real paramaters to play with!! A recommended play toy and great synth!!!!! look out for one!!

I have owned a 110f for about 9 interesting years now.

Still it has a number of functions I have not been able to find good use for, but some things need time. All in all I have been discovering nice surprises about what this machine can do all the time, since I got it.

One of the latest things I found out is the nice sound that can be produced by just using VCO2 at blockwave setting with the vco at a low level triggering the pulsewith. I hooked up this synthesizer to two amplifiers in series a couple of times, using the first one as a preamp (be very careful with your settings when trying this, don't blow up your gear). With the synth operating with the filter at a very low setting (keep the vco osc down!) it is possible to create amazing sub-base sounds, amongst more interesting new things. The filter bank comes in handy here to deal with noise that starts standing out because of the pre-amplification.

I see this machine as a fantastic generator of raw sound, which mostly requires some kind of sound enhacing after output though. I mostly use a reverb/chorus and this absolutely enhances the quality of the sound.

I have never regretted buying this Teisco and I don't think I will ever get tired of it.

My father very kindly brought me my s110f when I was 15 - I am now 32 and the synth still kicks out sounds that are exciting to me!

In those days it impressed my musical colleagues that you could actually play two notes at the same time - wow!

Ring modulator was always my favourite and tuning the second VCO in 5ths.

Teisco 110F Rules! This ever underestimated 'Synth from Hell' cranks out just about any sound imaginable! I've owned the cute little (but heavy) monster for over ten years now and it has never let me down, neither on stage nor in my home studio. I remember how the machine lit up like a damn X-mas tree after I first switched it on! Despite it's graphical layout I spent some hard times creating attractive sounding patches (this was also my first analogue synth ever) but nowadays I can operate it blindfolded. Recently I've started to create an extensive sample library with 110F sounds exclusively. When finished (will I ever be?) I will produce some pieces wich will especially feature these 110F sounds, accompanied by whatever else I own.

I will keep you guys informed. Untill then BYE!
