Steiner-Parker | Multiphonic Keyboard
|The Multiphonic Keyboard from Steiner Parker is a keyboard controller with "multiphonic" capabilities or in other words its an Arpeggiator Keyboard.
Considered one of the first Arpeggiators of the Synth World, the instrument has a large panel to the left of the 49 key keyboard which has the controls in one place.
The unit works a lot like today's Arpeggiators. You hold more than one key down, they alternate between the held keys. Settings are up, down, or random. Speed control is available as well as multi triggering, and, Sample & Hold.
