The Omni is an analog synth with preset Orchestral String sounds. It has polyphonic Violin and Viola waveforms as well as monophonic Bass and Cello waveforms.
It is split into 3 sections: Strings, Synthesizer, and Bass synth - all simultaneously available. It has traditional and simple VCA, VCF, and LFO controls for contouring your sounds as well as a nice chorus that really thickens up the string sound. It has no program memory. I think the best example of what the omni is capable of in one song is The Cars' "Good Times roll, " but there are plenty of youtube videos showing what this thing can do. I replaced over 60 capacitors personally in 2017, and the previous owner recapped the entire synth about in 2008.This synth is fully functional and sounds exactly how it's supposed to, but as with any Omni Ive ever seen, the square black buttons do not engage every time. I've found that pushing them in in a slightly downward motion is the most effective way to turn them on and off. It has wheels and two handles and plenty of cushion to protect the synthesizer. These synthesizers are hard to come by, especially in fully. Feel free to ask any questions. I can send more pictures, video, whatever you'd like.
