The main keyboard is the French Connection made by the British synthesizer company Analogue Systems. It can be played either as a conventional monophonic keyboard, or as with an Ondes Martenot: Your right hand controls a ring on a wire which moves continuously along the keys controlling pitch, while the left hand controls volume with a spring-loaded wooden button. There is also a joystick next to the button which can be set to control any parameter such as timbre.
The keyboards control a modular synthesizer housed in an aluminum cabinet. The sound modules are 100% analog. They include:
* RS95e Oscillator (x2). (A.Sys). The highest quality analog oscillators. Very precise control over pitch. Sine, Square, Triangle, and Saw waveforms, plus many others available with the built-in waveshaping functions.
* A132-3 Dual VCA (Doepfer). A high quality unit for controlling volume on two channels. Exponential or linear response curve selectable.
* RS100 Low Pass Filter (A.Sys). A great sounding filter voltage controlled filter, similar to the classic Moog filter.
* A140 Envelope Generator (Doepfer). For controlling the contour of a sound. Big time range.
* A121 Multimode Filter (Doepfer). Pitch accurate filter featuring lowpass, highpass, bandpass, notch.
* LFO-NZ (Analogue Solutions). A voltage controlled low frequency oscillator with white noise generator. Range: 0.01Hz to 32Hz.
* RS150 Sequential Switch. Several uses.
* A176 Fixed voltage source. Use in combination with RS150 and LFO for a 4 step sequencer. Control any parameter in the system.
Above the module cabinet sits a custom made 2 octave keyboard. The main electronics are from a kit by Doepfer. A few basic circuits were added by me to the panel, including a basic low pass filter used as a simple envelope. It is housed in stained Poplar wood, handbuilt by myself. Very sturdy and pretty. Has both analog and midi outputs.
Also included: Patch cables– 6″ (10), 12″ (15), 18″ (5), 36″ (3). Radioshack 42 range digital multimeter with frequency counter.
If you were to buy the electronics new today it would cost you about $4800 total. This does not include the carpentry for the small custom keyboard.

“The Filtare SEIII is a multimode, state-variable voltage-controlled filter that gives you low-pass, band-pass and high-pass outputs which are all simultaneously available. It also includes a notch output which allows you to change the balance between low-pass and high-pass. The SEIII uses discrete components but is based on SSM2040 architechture, giving you a very musical sounding filter. There are CV inputs for frequency, resonance and notch balance. The 1 V/O CV input for frequency can be used to have the filter follow what you’re playing on the keyboard or just crank up the resonance and use it to play sine-waves.” Auction ended.

This drum machine needs no introduction. Its a true classic which helped define music in the 1980s. This one is the 3rd version of this range which has the wooden sides and has MIDI in and out so integrates well into a modern midi setup. I have been using this in my small home studio but have decided to sell. Cosmetically in good condition for its age and working great. I found this the best drum machine i have used and has humanizing features which make it very real sounding. As i only sell good gear, i have just had this serviced professionally by Synth Repair Services in Staffordshire. Its had all but 2 buttons replaced, all sliders cleaned and a new tuning pot for the bass drum. This should give many years of service and i will include the original service invoice as proof. This version is the 110v version but i will include the 240v adapter i have been using for use in the UK. I will include the manuals i have also.” Auction ended. Click here to browse on eBay.
“The alphaSyntauri holds a unique place in music history. It was the first electronic instrument based on a home computer. Designed in 19791, the Syntauri Corporation began producing the alphaSyntauri in 1980. Instead of using its own internal circuitry to control the various parts of the instrument, the alphaSyntauri used an Apple II home computer as its brains. Back when other digital synthesizers cost upwards of $40,000, the alphaSyntauri was able to come in at under $1,500 (not including the Apple II).
Arguably, the alphaSyntauri could also be considered the first commercially available “soft synth” (an electronic musical instrument implemented strictly in computer software). Aside from the alphaSyntauri keyboard, accompanying interface card, and commercially available sound generation card (such as the Mountain Computer Music System cards), most of the magic of the alphaSyntauri is embodied in the software driving the system. Written in a combination of Motorola 6502 (the CPU in the Apple II) assembly language and Apple BASIC, the software controls most of the synthesizer functions, including sound programming, keyboard action interpretation, and automated playback.1
Its abilities were formidable at the time. The alphaSyntauri could play 16 notes simultaneously, and some models of the keyboard could measure key velocity. Its included software allowed for real-time control of selected portions of the sound, a trait borrowed from analog synthesizers of the time. It’s software was not in a fixed form either, but could be customized and added onto as time went on. Find out more about the alphaSyntauri’s abilities in the Documents and Tech Gallery sections of this web site.
For a variety of reasons, Syntauri Corp. failed in 1984, after having sold “thousands” of units.2 For a time, Mimetics Corporation supported the alphaSyntauri until they too went under in 1988. But many alphaSyntauris have made the big time, being played by such keyboard luminaries as Keith Emerson (Yes) and Herbie Hancock. A handful of musicians still use this unusual instrument today, and you can visit some of them in the People Gallery.
The original box contains the keyboard with some visible cosmetic scratches and the PC cards. No software and no manuals. If interested, make me an offer. ” Auction ended. Click here to browse on eBay.

“Custom E-MU SP1200 by Bruce Forat. There is not another unit like this in the world. This unit has brand new electric blue LED’s and brand new Forat blue back lit LCD.
The mod was $600 and looks insane. The unit also has a brand new black buttons for that blacked out look. Also this unit has the Sampling Input modification. What that
means is that 99% of all SP1200′s exhibit distortion when sampling. Most people think there is something wrong with their unit. Not this unit. This amazing feature was modded by Forat for crystal clear audio when running audio into it’s input, unlike a regular SP1200 that just sounds distorted. You know what I am talking about if you have ever owned the 1200. That was $275 alone! Plus the brand new all black and red momentary buttons, plus the brand new black lit blue LCD. For whatever reason the new blue back lit LCD in the picture looks aqua or a lighter hue then the LCD… it’s not in real life. It’s the same electric blue as the LED’s. You can see a better picture on Forat’s page of his blue LCD. The unit loads, saves, and plays like a champ. There is not another 1200 out there like this one. The blue LED’s look insane in the dark but are not too bright where they are distracting. We worried about that and it’s perfect. Every output works and there are no issues with this machine. There is a small knick on the body on the right hand side, and very minor various small scratches on the body, and then one small one above the word Sync on the face that no one sees and no one cares about. Trust me that’s the last thing people look at or care about when they see this extra special custom SP1200. As I said the imperfections are very minor and it’s the last thing on your mind when owning this unit. When people see this thing they just freak out on how cool it looks and sounds. Also let me add, so many SP1200′s out there have issues and need work on the power supplies, double triggering buttons, bad floppy drives, and that’s if you can find someone not to mess it up. There are no issues of overheating with this unit. Only Bruce Forat the legend of drum machines could have pulled this off. There is not another unit out there like this. By the way, the blue LED’s are not on all the time. Upon start up is the only time when every LED is lit up like that in the first image. Everything thing else is the same except for the gorgeous cosmetics and the Sampling Input modification. . It’s ready to go out of the box. Just plug into your mixer and you’ll be banging out new trax in no time and in style. You’ll be the only one with this beautiful machine on the planet if you win this auction
This unit was owned by me a non-smoker without pets or kids, and was never gigged.
I am also including a TR-808 floppy disk from Nomad Sampling with the latest SP1200 OS, which totally trashes a regular 808 due to the legendary swing of the SP1200. You also get a printed copy of the Owners Manual and the power cord. I am also including free Fedex Ground Shipping with Insurance to the lower 48, and more elsewhere. You can end up spending more on a regular SP1200 and have it arrive with issues, and it will just be a regular SP1200 at the end of the day. Not this unit. Someone out there is going to get a one of a kind SP1200 that no one else has in the world. I have been asked to send pictures of this unit to the author of the new SP1200 book approved by E-MU Systems coming out in the fall. ” Auction ended. Click here to browse on eBay.
