A single-VCO monophonic synthesizer with a 37-note keyboard. Pretty much a stripped down version of the Odyssey. It was produced from 1975 to 1981.

There is one LFO with sine modulation to VCF/PulseWidth and sine/square mod to oscillator pitch. An ADSR envelope generator with sample&hold for pitch/VCF is included. The VCF is a low-pass filter with resonance, cutoff and key tracking.

With a thinner sound compared to the Odyssey, no patch memory and otherwise limited potential, the only really positive thing about the Axxe was the cheap price.
