It's not a synth to synth solos but a search.
I recovered with his keyboard DK2 duophonic.
3 oscillators
an integrated reverb
1 ring modulator
1 filter
1 noise generator
6 for setting the envelope shaper
Having a meter
and between several sotie
1 jostick modulation
HP embedded 2
a great matrix that allows to modify and interpolates al infinite position of each module
you understood the grace of grouping the matrix are HUGE


It's pretty confusing at first.
The possibilities are so great and the manual so obscure it is difficult at first to go or we will.
There is a logic to follow.
Actually forget all the rest because it is unique in its operation.


AHHHH here is the point where it dominates.
The sounds are how to say Hallucinogen.
The dynamics is unparalleled.
And I think knowing I have a minimoog model d and MS20 and MS10.
I thought that was wrong was a machine MS20 research.
Ben has done that is 10,000 times more limited dynamic range and sound research that VCS3.
Yet I love my MS20, but we enter a new universe.
The VCS3 actually has one default it is not able to play what we want him to do.
He is your master and he leads the dance.
The most surprising is rated frequencies and the sound spectrum that is able to achieve.
Minimoog is very much a low in the bass below.
as the VCS3 is as low in infra bass but it attained the 2nd galaxy in the spectrum of acute infra.
Without putting out high frequencies and become like little needles coming triturate in your brain.
He has become a very sought after item.
very RARE and has now owned by connoisseurs, museums and mad scientist of music concrete.
The slightest contact or intermittent contact with the pins of the matrix sends you live visit COMOS then to the bottom of the GALAXY


If you are lucky enough to find it.
Do not miss the opportunity or you will regret all your life.
Today there are still a small production and new models come in drop by drop.
It appears that components other times are nearly exhausted, and designers of this marvel are better for us to release new EMS with more or less the same characteristics.
A yes if you want a new one I think there are more than 10 years of waiting.
False leave a deposit that check is not cashed.
And hope that the zero at the end of the check you do not eat potatoes shoed all your life
a wonderful site here http://www.thesynthi.de/index.php?/categories/20-Manuals
At last it was sold new on ebay a VCS3 over 13000 euros
A little video for the curious with the monster.
Welcome to the Machine of floyd is not far.
