A rinky dink version of the Minitmoog for budding synthesists from the early seventies. The Satellite is shaped after the organ-type synthesizers from its era. Although cased in a nice looking wood case the Satellite boasts little features. It's a single-vco monophonic preset synthesizer. Preset sounds include brass, reeds, strings, bell, and the far-out new lunar sound. The 37-note keyboard is slim and presets are selected from the clunky flip-switches just below the keyboard. Left hand performance controls offer modulation, pitch bend and filter sweeps. You won't find much use for a synth like the Satellite these days but it would make a nice collector's item. It has been used by Vangelis.
