Siel Cruise for sale:
The Siel Cruise is a polyphonic analog synthesizer manufactured in Italy in 1981. The Siel cruise is a combination of two synthesizers in one: A monophonic analog synthesizer (identical to the Siel Mono) + a polyphonic analog String machine/synthesizer (identical to the Siel Orchestra and the ARP Quartet). Each part has presets and independent settings. For example, the Mono portion offers a choice between ten presets or a "Free" mode with which most its parameters being editable in a conventional way: (filter setting, envelope settings ...). The Poly part is a "String Machine" that include all the classic "orchestra" sounds and a actionable CHORUS available on some presets from the Poly Part.
Some functions: VIBRATO, VCF Cutoff and Resonance for Mono filter, brass CUTOFF and RESONANCE for the Poly Part; ADSR envelope for the Mono Part; Brass ATTACK, String ATTACK and DECAY; A Portamento; A CHORUS called here: "ANIMATOR" ...
For the one who knows analog synthesizers, the Siel Cruise operation may seem a little strange at first, but in a few minutes/hours you will realize that this original architecture allows many experiments and uncommon sounds.
In our opinion the Siel Cruise is a greatly underestimated synthesizer: the Mono part sounds thick, rich. The Poly string part is a very efficient String machine. The Siel Cruise sound and architecture are reminiscent of the Moog Opus 3 in many aspects.(Make your own opinion comparing both instruments in our youtube demos)
With only a few scruffs and dings here and there, and five missing slider caps this Siel Cruise is in good cosmetic for it's age (pictures are from the actual item for sale). This Siel Cruise has been state of the art restored/serviced in our workshop. So, it is in perfect working order and is sold with a 1 month. warranty.
