He is very proud that he can operate it and get crazy sci-fi sounds from this thing, the other day he made it sound like a cat meowing 😸

We at CatSynth would love to hear some of Borris’ patches.

The Teisco S110F is a two-oscillator analog synthesizer released by Kawaii (under their Teisco brand) in 1980. It is a classic-style subtractive analog synth with resonant VCF, a high-pass filter and the usual envelopes, LFO, and sample-and-hold for modulation.

I confess I am not that familiar with Teisco synthesizer line, let alone the 110f. Here is a bit from Vintage Synth Explorer.

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.
