Only about 20 of these were made. Users include Wendy Carlos (who owns a 221 & SPX 216), Bruno Spoerri,

various electronic studio's in Europe.  Best suited for studio use due to complex control.

 

 

The 221 has a 50-pin connector on the back which provides CV in and out for each channel, and other functions.

The 1220 vocoder expander unit pictured above this 221 is a one-off piece Synton built for Dutch broadcasting company NOS.

It houses a pitch to voltage converter, CV freeze function and a 'presto-patch' edge connector for making analyzer-synthesizer patches.
