The VIP 600 was the top of the line model, when it was manufactured in the 1970s As Farfisa's flagship model of the VIP line, the 600 model boasts all the bells and whistles, chief among them is the Synthaslolam feature which is an automated pitch bend. When switched on, the pitch of any key pressed starts at some point below the correct note for that key, then glides upward until it hits the correct pitch. The Range adjustment determines how far down the pitch starts, up to a full octave below the "correct" note. The Timer adjustment determines the length of time the note takes to reach the correct pitch. Combining Syntheslalom with Percussion, Repeat and Vibrato can produce some really wild effects!
The keyboard boasts 49 keys on the upper manual and 61 keys on the lower manual, along with the additional bass pedals. Unlike earlier Farfisas that relied on simple on/off tone switches, the VIP 600 has banks of five position drawbars for an incredible tonal range. For buzzy, reedy sizzle, plunky percussive sounds, and a wide palette of the bubbly, warm sounds familiar to all Farfisa fans, the VIP 600 is among the most versatile tools the company ever created and an instrument ideal for a studio environment.
The original bass pedals are included.
