Dual oscillator, dual envelopes Architecture Class: Conventional (subtractive).

Ebay Description:

The Kawai/Teisco 110F is a 37 key monophonic synthesizer, featuring dual oscillators (saw/pulse/triangle/noise waveforms), ring modulation, a resonant low pass analog filter, a high pass filter, dual ADSR envelopes, an LFO (pulse/saw/triangle/square/random waveforms), portamento, EQ, filter input, and CV/gate I/O.
