Elgie, Crumar Orchestrator and Sequential Six-Trak

The adorable Elgie returns, this time with a Crumar Orchestrator and Sequential Six-Trak. Submitted by Eston Lathrop via our Facebook page.

The Crumar Orchestrator was released in 1977 and provides an orchestra-in-a-box with Brass, Piano, Clavichord, Cello, and Violin sounds, as well as a Bass sound. They can be combined and each has its own level control. It is particularly good for the Brass and String sounds which are reminiscent of the ARP Solina (we at CatSynth have used the Arturia Solina V on a few recordings).

The Sequential Six-Trak was released in 1984. As a synthesizer, it was a smaller cousin to the Prophet series, but it did include many of the Prophets’ features like cross-modulation. There was also an onboard sequencer six-track sequencer (hence the name) and full MIDI support, including controllers for the various parameters.

Elgie is quite cute and has some cool synths.
