8 voice rackmount monster analog poly synth. This was originally the standard Omega 8 which I had factory updated to the CODE 8 spec and faceplate, along with the OD (overdrive/analog distortion) switch in addition to a factory tuneup and eight CS80 filters (Oberheim and Moog filters also included standard). Works perfectly and sounds amazing. Faceplate is mint, body casing has some rack rash, scratches and a dent, none of which are visible when rack mounted. I will include the editing software license ($100 value) if I can confirm that it is transferable. Will ship via UPS Ground, fully insured through Reverb, well packed, signature required. Shipping costs covers shipping and insurance.

Eight Voice with Overdrive

8 sinewave generators for Oscillator 1 and the brilliant new Filter Control Section which allow sweeping and tweaking the discrete filter types in real time, set this NovaMusik-partnered Omega Series Synth apart from our beloved, standard issue Omega 8s. Clever switches in the Filter Control Section also contribute to the CODE's expressiveness via momentary control of assignable parameters, and full panel control—secluded behind veils of edit windows in the Omega—of the auto-triggering External Audio Input, jack you wholly into the synth's processing and punctuating power.

Voices: Mono, 2, 4, or 8.
Multitimbrality: 2 voice = 2 part, 4 voices = 4 part, 8 voices = 8 part; parameters: patch, number of voices, mono or poly: splits, layers, prepared.
Audio outputs: One main stereo and mono output, one stereo TRS output connection per voice.
Audio inputs: One input connection per voice.
Overdrive / OD (Optional): Eight: One per voice. Distortion setting fixed.
Interface: 32 knobs with relative and jump modes, 1 rotary encoder, 35 tactile switches, 24 LEDs.
Display: 16 x 2 back lit liquid crystal.
Memory: RAM: 254 patch locations in program mode, 128 in multi mode, ROM: 254 in program mode.
Weight: 20 lbs.
Dimensions: 4 rack spaces, 15 inches deep.
Power: 90 - 250 volts AC auto switching.

Two voltage controlled discrete analog oscillators, one sub wave of Oscillator 1, waveforms: sine (OSC 1), triangle, sawtooth and variable width square; simultaneous waveforms output; syncing of Osc 2 to Osc 1.

Two voltage controlled discrete analog filters: 12 db (classic Oberheim® style) hard-wired into voice board; 24db (classic Moog® style) in docking slot 1; 2 additional filter docking slots; 2 and 3 can host our classic Roland® 303, Arp® 2600, and Yamaha® CS-80 styled, all hardware filters; 12db filter modes: low pass, bandpass, high pass and band reject. Filters do not operate in series or parallel. Each voice can access all four filters.

Filter Control Section:
Sweep through all the filter types in real time.
Increase or decrease the filter frequency.
Increase the envelope amount.
Increase the resonance amount.
Filter ENV Delay.
Invert the filter envelope.
"CUT" Filter Decay.
Controls CODE synth engine or external input.

Filter Control Sequences for the filter tables:
SEM LP = 1
SEM BP = 2
SEM HP = 3
MINI = 5
AUX 1 = 6
AUX 2 = 7

For Units with SEM and MINI:

For Units with SEM, MINI and AUX1 (filter slot 3):

For Units with SEM, MINI, AUX1 and AUX2 (filter slot 4):

The 8 Voice Version:
configured as an 8 channel filterbank.

Each voice card has two empty expansion slots for extra filters: the S.E.M. filter is built in and the Mini filter sits in expansion slot 1; three expansion slots total, as is the case for all Omega Series Synths.

Optional filter cards also available:

Patch Bank 3
Includes Theriot bank ($139 sold separately)

Patch Bank 4
Includes Cadix bank ($189 sold separately)

Three multiple stage envelope generators: attack, decay, sustain and release with inverting and multiple triggering; additional delay, decay 2, and breakpoint parameters for envelopes 1 and 2; assignable 3rd envelope with up to three destinations and depths. Envelope 1 fixed to filter frequency. Envelope 2 fixed to amplifier level. Envelope 3 knobs also can control the external inputs.

Three low frequency oscillators, waveforms: triangle, sawtooth, reverse sawtooth, square, noise, random; three destinations and depths each for LFOs 1&2, with range, delay, key trigger, phase, mode (mono or poly), quantize, midi sync. LFO3 fixed to voice panning.

Linear or exponential, parameters: time, mode (auto, legato, glissando), autoglide interval, dynamics, destination.

Unison Mode:
One, two, four, six, or eight voices depending on voice configuration.

Multi Mode:
Prepared: one MIDI channel, up to eight different patches (synths); split: set point; layer: 4-4; multi: channelize up to 8 patches (synths).

Additional Features:
Oscillator 2 audio frequency modulation, destinations: OSC 1 frequency, OSC 1 pulse width, filter frequency; white noise generator; auto triggering external input processor on each voice, parameters: input level, trigger level, mix level, window.

Modulation Destinations:
LFOs 1, 2 and envelope 3: VCO 1 and 2 frequency, pulse width, and mix level, VCF frequency and resonance, noise level, Xmod amount, LFOs 1 and 2 rate and depth, VCA level, external mix level.

MIDI Controllers:
Dynamics, modwheel, bender, pressure, tracking, breath controller: LFOs 1, 2 and envelope 3 destinations, including envelopes 1, 2, and 3 attack, decay, sustain, release amounts.

MIDI Specifications:
In out and thru. Receives program change, bank select, glide on/off, glide time, volume, SYSEX. Controllers: dynamics, modwheel, bender, pressure destination and amount (x2). Controller 1 assignments: dyn, mod, pressure, bend, tracking, continuous cont #2 (x2), controller 1 amount (x2). Controller 2 assignments: same as controller 1 (x2), controller 2 amount (x2). Dynamics, tracking, and bender can manipulate positive and negative modulation values. Fixed continuous controller assignments exist for all key functions.
