Teisco | Synthesizer 60F


The Teisco Synthesizer 60F is a monophonic analog synthesizer with a single voltage controlled oscillator in a compact 32 key keyboard chassis.

The Synthesizer 60F offers a lot of control and modulation for a synthesizer of it's size. Players would refer to it for sound effects and lead sounds.

Though it has only one oscillator it offers two filters. A VCF just after the mixer section and High Pass Filter after the Envelope Generators. This feature makes it somewhat unique to it's comparison instruments of it's time.

The unit has Saw and Pulse waves and can process external audio. There is also a Noise Generator and Ring Modulator and can also do Sample & Hold. Features that are not always present ina instrument of it's class.

Additionally the Synthesizer 60F has a single PPC Controller(Proportional Pitch Control) licensed from A.R.P. The PPC uses pressure-sensitive buttons to control bend up and bend down.

Velocity As with a piano, the harder you hit a key, the louder the sound, unlike most organs which always produce the same loudness no matter how hard you hit a key. Aftertouch Pressing a key after you activated it. Channel Aftertouch, no matter which key, it will send a Channel message. Poly Aftertouch, sends the pressure per key instead of the whole channel.
Values for OSC, LFO, Filter, Envelope are per voice unless stated otherwise.
