Teisco Synthesizer 110F

Teisco 110F Image

In the beginning of the 80's Kawai began manufacturing synthesizers under the company name of Teisco. Their early designs resulted in synths like the S110F above. The Synthesizer 110F is an upgraded S60-F, with dual analog VCO's and an updated look. It has a small but usable 37 note keyboard. Classic analog sawtooth, square, and triangle waveforms plus noise are on-board and can be mixed with external sounds run through the 110F's filters and envelopes. The oscillators can be de-tuned for duophonic textures or phatter leads and bass sounds.

There's plenty of modulation ability and classic analog effects in the 110F to really liven up the sound. There's an LFO which can modulate the VCO and VCF and can trigger the EGs. The VCF resonant low pass filter is great too. There's also a VCA section with Attack, Decay, Sustain and Release controls and finally there's a Hi-Pass filter. There is also a portamento effect, a ring modulator, vibrato and sample-and-hold for those classic analog synth effects and tricks! Lots of pretty blinking lights, a sleek and straight-forward layout and very nice analog bass, lead and synth sounds are all a part of the Synthesizer 110F experience.

Had to comment: The filter on a 110f is way better than on an Ody. The only thing 110f has in common with an Ody is the touchpads. The filter in a 110f will kick Ody-ass (I own a 2823 Ody so I know). This is due to a ladder technique more similar to a Moog-filter, it doesn't loose base when resonance is up high. The best filter by far!

I own both the 110f and the 60f and they are my "goto"-synths for fat bass and fat leads. The best feature by far is the 24 db ladder LP-filter. It beats the LP-filters of my ProOne, MS20 and MonoPoly by far. No doubt.

A tip: I have modded the filter touchpad so that it constantly is in the bottom position. This way I can close the filter even more by using the "sensitivity"-pot.

Here is a short demo I made:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VXN1plsxdyw

I owned one of these back in the day, it is a good solid synth and was considered in many ways to be the poor mans Arp Odyssey, for a start it has the same filter as the Arp Odyssey. If you are lucky enough to find one of these it is definitely worth buying, the only real flaw with this synth is the slightly naff (but of its time) rubber controller pads which will probably require attention due to its age etc, to be honest they were never greatly responsive but apart from that it is superb, I wish I still had mine as it is a synth that definitely adds presence and character to any mix.

Correction to my prior I have a 60-F not a 110-F.

I have one of these in nice shape and it's awesome as I really love the sound of this instrument as it rivals the MS-20 in some ways!!! Great bass, lead & pad sounds...
