hi people was one of my first synths , i bought it after ibought a roland mc202,i realy thinks the teisco is abetter choise not only for tecno but really for drum & bass basse oke its not aminimoog and also not a micromoog but its a copy of arps odysse and whit a good quality valve distorsion ,you can make sounds from a 30303030to a ballsy bassliner but dont pay more than 500guilders or 160ponds orso goooooooodluckys c-ya allll

Well, it´s not THAT good, but if you get it cheap then it´s ok.. You can get nice drumsounds out of it. Somebody ever built external filter control to it ?

I had one of these back in the early 80s, paid £200 on HP (and kicked myself when the music shop got the SH-101 in two weeks later). Anyway, it wasn't disappointing for all that, just very odd. The rubber pressure pad for the pitch bender. The hold switch. The external input. I don't know if it was the atmospheric conditions in my part of the world or if it was my obsessive twiddling but I produced amazing sounds from it. If I can find the ancient ferrite shedding tapes I recorded them on I'll post them on the web, but if I found one for sale, I'd grab it and have hours of fun with it. FYI, Teisco became Kawai, and we all know what happened there. Anyway, if you see one for a sane price, get it. Or let me know.

Good noises, excellent as a filter unit for processing external sounds (resonant, time-variant LPF + non-resonant, fixed HPF).

Some tricks: if you have a trigger source with MIDI sync (MIDI to CV/trigger converter, drum machine with trigger output) you can fire the EG and control the VCA and VCF of the external signal. I have an E-Mu SP12 with metronome individual output that can perfectly trigger the EG in several time signatures synced with MIDI tempo (1/4, 1/4t, 1/8, 1/8t, 1/16, 1/16t, 1/32, 1/32t). Then you can control the amplitude decay of every &quot;slice&quot; of incomming signal with the slider of the EG, as well as the decay of the cutoff frequency of the LPF affected by the EG. I use it with samples of the same SP12 and it adds a lot of character to the final sound.

Because this is a single oscillator machine, theres some things you can do to fat the sound: get a chorus pedal, this is the equivalet of have 2 oscillators slightly detuned.

get a Boss OC2 Octave pedal, that generates 2 square waves 1 and 2 octaves below the original sound and with individual volumen control of the 3 signals. This is the equivalent of Roland's square wave sub-oscillator (plus an addicional bottom octave) and can transform the S60's week sound in a REAL PHAT monster.
