One of EML's final products. Super rare bird, almost impossible to find in the wild. The Synkey was one of the very first synthesizers to offer patch memory over it's unique plastic punch-card system. Released in both programmable and non-programmable versions. This is the programmable model, however it does not include any punch-cards. 

Features 13 oscillators along with 13 pushbuttons (semitones) on the front panel which allows one-finger chords to be played by selecting which intervals of the chromatic scale. Super cool feature.

Single multimode voltage controlled filter, capable of continuously variable response from lowpass to bandpass to high pass (a feature of most EML synths). ADSR envelope generators were provided for the voltage controlled amplifier (which was capable of being switched into a ring modulator mode) and the VCF; however, the decay knob controlled both the decay time and the release time. A single low frequency oscillator (referred to by EML as the "modulation oscillator") was provided, with five selections of waveforms.

This synthesizer was just serviced, along with an new AC power cable. Rare, rare, rare!
