Synth of the week : Gleeman Pentaphonic Clear
Gleeman pentaphonic clear

The Pentaphonic is a extremely rare five-voice polyphonic analog synthesizer released in 1982. Only about 20 were ever made ! It was designed by brothers Al and Bob Gleeman and featured three DCOs, a four-pole lowpass resonant filter with an ADSR envelope, a VCA with ADSR, an LFO, and built-in chorusing, a 300-note capacity real-time sequencer on-board. There's also a cool X/Y joystick for controlling pitch and mod effects. Some models also had a Presetter added which gave it 100 patch memories and eight digital waveforms.
The Clear model is unique because of its transparent plexiglass case. It was also designed to be strapped on like a guitar for live use.
