Synthi - AKS

The Synthi AKS, was a portable modular analog synthesiser made by EMS in 1972. Most notable for its patch pin matrix, built-in blue capacitive touch keyboard and integrated sequencer, many of its functions and internal design were the same as the EMS VCS3 with the major difference of being all housed in a Spartanite (thin plastic) briefcase rather than a timber case. Like the VCS3, the Synthi AKS feature three oscillators (which are stable after 10 minutes of warm up) and a unique patch bay signal routing system.

Today the Synthi AKS is still used by artists and musicianslooking to create exotic synthesised sounds.

The AKS was released in 1972 for £420
