” EMS Pitch To Voltage Converter
Amazing unit… oscillator sounds cool, tracks very well, good control – Rare and Classic.
Had this unit for just over a year and it’s had some great use but over the last couple of months I haven’t needed it, as I am getting P2V from the MS20 these days.
Originally, these units came in wooden cases but this one’s case has been removed a while ago, before it came to me.
Sorry to see it go but I need the cash!
I got this from a very reputable seller in the Netherlands who had it properly serviced before the sale, so it’s all working as it should.” Link

” Up for sale is a (1) very rare EMS Soundbeam MK1, distance to voltage converter. The EMS comes with its sensor and the power supply adaptor and is optical in good condition. Someone wrote some letters in the case and on the sensor, but overall it looks very good for its age. It works perfectly! The serial number is: 1085.” Link
This is being sold for parts or repair because we do not have the special power cable needed to test this, so we cannot verify that it is in proper working condition.
It has scratches on it and normal signs of its age, but overall it is in very good condition (see pics).
Picture #8 shows the model number and serial number.
Includes a folder with xerox copies of servicing instructions with schematics, and some spare parts (see last pic).
Note that we are also auctioning the keyboard for this synthesizer separately.” Link

“The Mighty EMS Vocoder System 2000, with 16 bands in excellent condition and 100% fully functional. It looks beautiful. This is the series II, black version with rack ears, handles, dual LED meters and in USA voltage. I am the original owner and it has less than 50 hours on it. I kept it turned off and disconnected from wall power when not in use. I have owned most of the top vocoders with exception of the EMS 5000 and the EMS line of vocoders sound better than all of the rest in terms of raw character. The EMS 2000 has an electric punch to it that others don’t have and it’s sibalance is excellent too. To me it sounds better than the Moog/Bode vocoders and definitely better than the Sennheiser VSM-201. The Sennheiser is smooth but lacks that electric punch. Electronically in terms of filters and envelopes, the EMS 2000 is close to identical to the EMS 3000 and EMS 5000. Only difference is that the 3000 has the same 16 bands/filters/envs but with attentuators and the 5000 has 22 bands and patch panel. The S/N ratio is better on the 2000 than the 3000 perhaps due to not having the attentuator circuits installed. Sure digital vocoders can do cool things, but when you hear an EMS 2000 analog vocoder with a monster Moog or Oberheim synthesizer along with vocals, some analog reverb and tube preamp…piped into a very powerful sound system, well, lets just say…..you will definitely never forget it. This item will be professionally packed, fully insured and shipped via FedEx.” Link
“The is a rare, legendary analog synthesizer favored by a long list of pop and experimental musicians. Chances are you are looking at this auction because you know what this unit is and what it can do. There are many compelling reasons why it is coveted by musicians and producers alike, not the least being the rich textures you can create with it.
This particular VCS3 MKII was once in a synthesizer museum in Great Britain. I acquired it in 2000, and it has lived in my smoke-free studio and been treated very well. Works wonderfully as both as as synth and as an effects processor. Along with the Synthi AKS, it is probably one of the most versatile instruments I have used in the past 25 years.
This instrument includes an external gate input modification for MIDI/CV applications, but no other mods have been added because I did not feel the need for them. EMS has an variety of mods they can perform for you so I would recommend contacted Robin Wood for a list.
The VCS3 will ship worldwide in a custom-made flight case by A&S Case Co. out of Los Angeles, CA. It is extremely rugged and was used during international tours with the instrument. ” Link
“This is a rare and historic synthesizer. It was one of the earliest Putneys made in 1969, Serial #193. It is in excellent condition, hardly a scratch anywhere. All three boards were recently serviced and calibrated by Robin Wood at EMS in England. Electrolytic capacitors have been replaced, envelope maximum decay time tweaked up to 45 sec., Osc3 increased slow frequency range. Apart from that, everything is original, no modifications have been made. The matrix pins are all white – this is how the early Mark I Putneys came. Even the AC plug is still original. The pin matrix surface itself looks like new.
It sounds absolutely wonderful. I have tested all functions / matrix combos to the best of my ability and everything works, including the envelope light.
Includes original Ionic Industries VCS3 manual (“…The synthesizer for the seventies…”) which contains many patch diagrams. It looks to be mostly the same as the “official” EMS VCS3 manual.
Rear and bottom panel are missing but they are just pieces of hardboard, easy to replace. Also as you can see from the pictures, many of the silver knob caps are missing but are also easy to replace.” Link
“This is a rare EMS Synthi A.
It was previously owned by Boz Burrell (Bad Comapny / King Crimson /etc.) and formed part of his collection of sythesisers that he used to hire out for studio use. The unit has been built into a sturdy wooden case to make it more sturdy than the original plastic briefcase, althought the lower part of teh plastic case is, I think, still attached. The wooden case itself is a bit scuffed as you can see but it does protect the unit well.
It was modified by EMS themselves with some of the standard mods that they did for several of their customers (see pictures).
It is in full working order. Boz gave it to me in 1990 when I was working for him as a sound engineer. I was helping to clear some of the older instruments he had and expressed an interest in this so he said I could have it. A few of teh capacitors have been replaced as has one of the power transistors which has been fitted with a heatsink.
I have used it myself in a couple of theatre productions in Germany and then we used it onstage for a while with my own band, That Legendary Wooden Lion.” Link
Essentially the same instrument as the legendary EMS VCS3, and sometimes known as the ‘Portabella’, the Synthi A is a self-contained, analogue modular synthesizer system, literally built into its own (genuine!) Spartanite attache briefcase! This is a very rare original working example of one of the most revered, fantastic, and ultra portable synthesizers ever made.
Firstly, there’s a little bit of background information on this which might possibly help me in my quest to sell it: this particular Synthi A was originally a end of tour gift to Mike Hall, Erasure’s keyboard roadie, in 1992 – he is still the current owner, and I am now selling this on his behalf, sold as seen.
I’m sure that most people looking at this listing know all too well what a wondrous thing it is that I’m selling here, and perhaps are aware of how incredibly rare it is to find a genuine, working example of a Synthi A these days. There’s absolutely tons of info around on this machine, which is easy enough to come across on the web via a well placed Google search or two, so there’s no point in me lazily copying/pasting or just replicating any of that.” Link
the original EMS Soundbeam 1 (master)
much more to it than a simple theremin, the EMS Soundbeam allows for very small and very big moves to control the sound of any synthesizer attached. moving a little finger or dancing around a room, swaying your body, just about anything is possible.
there are numerous ways the SOundbeam will respond to your movement, depending on which preset you pick.
there’s the Master module, the sensor, a tutorial video and the manual.
it is very rare and particularly in this condition. its basically new. i bought it for a project, but never got around to it. it’s been taken out of the box to test it (it works just fine), that’s it.” Link
“Here is the chance you’ve been waiting for! For sale is an incredible rare EMS Synthi A with DK1 keyboard, the classic vintage analog synth as used by Brian Eno, Pink Floyd and many more. This Synthi is in great cosmetic condition and fully functional. A few scruffs/sticker residue on the outside case, but the inside looks near mint and very clean. Serviced 5 years ago by the original manufacturers in the UK and barely used since. It’s been very well taken care of. Includes the DK1 cricklewood keyboard which adds a whole range of possibilities and control. Also comes with the lid and complete with all the pins plus 9 extra pins, keyboard and power cable. Runs off 220-240v but step up transformer is included to use in 110v countries. Sounds incredible, I have owned many vintage synths and this one is the coolest and most unique. Amazing EMS sound you need to hear to believe, can get very raw, and with the patchpin interface it gets you to come up with sounds you’d never get otherwise. See pictures below for more details.” Link
This very rare EMS Vocoder 1000, from the same company that brought you the Synthi AKS and VCS3. This amazing sounding analog vocoder, perhaps the most intelligible ones out there. It has a very nice tone, and most importantly, you can hear what you’re saying without having to keep changing the settings. Jean Michel Jarre, Pink Floyd plus many others in 1970-80′s used them extensively, and this model was used as the sound of the robots on Battlestar Galactica and in early Dr Who episodes. The 1000 has a very similar design to the 2000; except for a few changes (they moved some of the sockets to the front panel etc). This unit is in good condition and as far as I can tell, still fully functional. I’ve used it for recording at home and it works great, mixed with the keyboard and mic, to give you the authentic sound of the 1970’s Vocoder. ” Link

Vintage Originals from the 70-ties, Unique and FUN!!
This auction is for 2 vintage original EMS modules. Very rare units sold as accessoires to the Synthi AKS and VCS3 synthesizers but can be used with other (modular) synths and studio environments. Creative tools derived from the infamous Synthi 100 studio synthesizer. These 2 work well and have been gone over by a pro tech about a year ago. Super. What I like to mention is that the front panels have been filed off a few milimeters at the left and right ends. Probably to make them fit in better a rack. As you can see in the pictures this is not visible when rack mounted. The case is included.” Link

“FOR SALE: EMS Synthi Sequencer 256 in original crate with paperwork. 3 Layers with 2 Control Voltages plus Key Parameters, Fourth Key only Layer, Five Octave Velocity Sensistive Keyboard, 256 Event x 42 bit Memory Each event comprises 2 x 6-bit Control Voltages and 13-bit Start & Stop times, Internal (0.1 – 200 Hz) or External Clock, Plays Forwards and Backwards, Editing. Comes with original set of schematics and its original shipping crate (minus the original foam which was removed due to crumbling). This is a very lightly used super rare EMS unit that when built was six times the price of a Synthi AKS. To create this unit in its day required super high level engineering and design. Thus this unit is extremely complex in nature and will require a well trained technician for all maintenance. Currently the unit is “working”. I add quotations to working because the unit has not been serviced and brought up to factory spec and therefore should be considered unreliable until fully serviced. Because of this fact I am selling it in “AS IS CONDITION” and will not except returns or complaints about its operation status. Do your own research. The unit is in very clean condition and appears near mint other than the wooden sides which have some veneer marks. As well the tolex will need re-gluing though there are no tears.” Auction ended.

“FOR SALE: Vintage Original EMS Synthi AKS synthesizer in NEAR MINT condition. Many years ago back east I purchased a EMS Synthi AKS synthesizer in ruff condition. Price was right and I had limited funds. I drove several hours from my home in New York City to pick it up. The guy selling it was an older hippy who with his brother ran an odd studio. During our discussion and my inspection the brothers mentioned they purchased two of these new back around 1972-3. What happened to the other I asked? One brother said, “we never unpacked that one”. “Holy shit” I said, “where is it”?. They pulled out and showed me a mint un-used vintage original new old stock Synthi. My heart pounded. Sadly they stated it was 100% not for sale. For the next five years twice a year I would call them hopeful they would finally sell and one day lucky for me one day they agreed. For many years I kept this Synthi in its original box and never put a hand on it. Then I purchased my First Buchla system. I did not need money however since I owned a nice Buchla I decided to sell the Synthi. I felt it should have a new owner and I sold it to a friend. Months later I regretted selling and eventually purchased it back. Unfortunately while it was with my friend the box was discarded (it was nasty anyway) and unfortunately some very very very light marks appeared on the Spartanite case while in his hands. However while with my friend it was basically unused and no marks were made on the unit itself. A year ago I carefully packed the unit and sent it to EMS London for a careful inspection. At that time the unit was up to factory spec and fully functioning. The unit is currently in working order and has been basically untouched and un-used. This is as close to New Old Stock as you get. ” Auction ended. Click here to browse on eBay.
“This is a “Pitch to Voltage Converter” created by EMS Synth out of the UK. Pretty cool… this was pre-midi, you could set up to have certain pitches (i.e. tones of a guitar string) affect to CV used to trigger synth sounds.
I inherited this from my father-in-law. It’s pretty messed up, see pics. Cosmetically, there are stains, scratches and wear on the top and on the sides. The bottom is missing 2 of the rubber feet.
Operationally, it powers up (the red light comes on). Above that, I honestly don’t know how it works or what it should be doing so it’s hard for me to speak to that too much. Basically, I’m selling this AS-IS so someone out there who is interested can buy it, fix it up, and put it to good use.
It comes with an original EMS grey connecting cable. It does not have a power adapter (I used th one I have from my EMS Synthi). You can get them from Robin Wood at EMS Synthi in the UK for $30 US (16 GBP). For your convenience, if you like I will include my power cable for an extra $30 bucks, and I’ll order a new one for myself and wait for it to get shipped.
Let me know if you have any questions, I will follow any instructions from you as far as testing this out but, again, I’m not an expert and don’t really know anything other than what is listed above. Good luck! I hope this finds it’s way to a good home and put to good use… AS-IS, NO RETURNS, BUY AT OWN RISK.” Auction ended. Click here to browse on eBay.
One function of this synthesizer does not work correctly, the auto looping portion of the envelope shaper, otherwise known as the “off” pot.
It has been this way since I purchased the synth about 5 years ago. I am pretty familiar with this function as I also own the Analogue Systems clone of that portion.
I have never had it repaired as I have not found anyone in the Bay Area to work on it and never felt the need to send it off somewhere to be worked on.
At the suggestion of others I have cleaned the contacts of the circuit boards, made sure everything is seated correctly, etc. All to no avail.
The other situation is that I have never been able to get the keyboard/sequencer to do anything.
I do not think this is uncommon.
I have decided to put this up for auction as is, as I feel confident that anyone who is seriously interested in it will surmise, as I have, that the problem with the envelope should be something as simple as a bad capacitor. It is just beyond my limited capacity to diagnose or repair.
Putting all of that aside, the synth is functioning 100% otherwise.
All functions work as normal, including every other control on the envelope shaper.
Prior to posting this auction, I have tested all the inputs & outputs, all patch pin points, the joystick, the manual trigger button, etc.
All patch pins are present.
As can be see seen in the photos, the physical condition is excellent, both inside & outside.
There is slight bit of oxidation(?) on the metal parts of the Spartan case, as can be seen in the photo.
There is no trace of that anywhere else on the synth.
I can send hi res versions of these photos upon request. There are more photos of the inside & the circuit boards.
Please remember that these photos were taken in direct sunlight. I should have at least dusted it off.
The synth is quite beautiful in person.” Auction ended. Click here to browse on eBay.
“great restoration project for any keyboard wizard out there. I have spoken with EMS who will service this model they gave me a 6-8 weeks turnaround window which would be an ideal route for anyone with the desire to have this up and running again. the keyboard is there ..but power cord is gone …only the lower part of brief case is present . unit powers up gauges respond but functions are not present . all three oscillators are worn and reverb pot needs replacement all matrix patch pins are missing..but EMS sells those as well. there is some service available in the US but the buyer should explore those options to find what is comfortable for them. I received general quote of around 600-800 dollars to fix issues described(from a US based repair person ) . just know there is somebody waiting to get their hands on this ultra rare synth ..which when it was fully functioning blows your mind..hours of flowing energy to sculpt..GOOD LUCK BIDDING!!!! the seller is listing this as is no returns, for parts or restoration only .hate to let this go but enjoy guitar work more right now THANKS” Auction ended.

This was in our studio for about 8 years, and before that rumor has it that its home was a university in western Canada. It’s as mean a sound processor as it is a synth. As you can see, some of the silver knob cap tops are missing. I was collecting them in a plastic bag for a couple years, but who knows what happened to the bag.

Please note: I tested all the pins on a Synthi and found them all to be at least slightly intermittent. In other words I usually needed to twist or wiggle them to hear the result. One did not connect at all. One has been intentionally shorted with solder. I would not recommend these to become your main pins. On the other hand you might very well have some projects or experiments needing pins or may wish to attempt to restore them to better working order.
I’ve removed the caps for my auction photo since I figured someone may want to see what resistor values are inside. One did not open and I didn’t want to risk breaking it. The caps all fit back on. 3 caps seem new and I’ve found not all caps are interchangeable.
Just to make sure I’ll mention it again. Some pins may work fine in your system but maybe all will make poor contact. I’ve tried all of them in an AKS without ill effect but I can’t guarantee you may not do something that does some sort of damage (poke your eye? break off in your matrix?) I figured someone may want to use these for mods or restoration. I am aware they don’t work perfectly and will not accept a return because they don’t work well or work at all.” Auction ended.

“I am selling a rare and unique vintage EMS putney VCS3 in mint conditions. It was checked and serviced by Bruce Forat. He spent quite some time to figure and design a midi mod for it.

“This synth is fully functional but the case is cracked and it has a couple of mods that were removed except for the IEC connection. From what I’ve understood this is from the first production – with dins. (around 20-50 were made of this type with German style din jacks instead of 1/4 according to Robin Wood.) This synth was approved by David Cockerell himself with his initials on the serial tag and completed 22nd of December, 1969. Pretty much all orig. parts inside. Definitely needs to be recapped. I’m assuming it was owned at one time by NYU as the sticker implies. This has a sticker indicating that it was the Ionic Industries Inc Putney VCS3 carefully placed over the EMS graphic (Electronic Music Studios (London) LTD VCS so I’m guessing this was when Ionic was distributing EMS in the states.” Auction ended.

You’ll probably know, but still…. the VCS 3 mk1 (or The Putney) by EMS London Ltd is an outstanding vintage analog modular synthesizer. There are many nice vintage synths, but nothing compares to the sound and interface of the VCS 3.
Three oscillators with multiple waveshapes, a great filter, the infamous trapezoid, spring reverb, ringmodulator, noise generator, the patchpin matrix, the XY-joystick, etc etc it all adds up to one of the finest and most sought after synthesizers around. And all of that put in a lovely wooden cabinet. The VCS 3 breathes the London attitude of the late 60s, early 70s. EMS was and still is as hip as it gets.
This particular VCS 3 has recently been fully serviced and modified by a qualified technician (so not overhauled by seller, but by a qualified person!) The power supply has been partly replaced and improved, re-capped, all potmeters have been replaced with new, better ones, the recommended temp balance modification has been done for more stable tuning, and then some of the more fun mods have been done, in an add-on box (the connector is neatly installed at the back of the synth). There’s trapezoid inversion, standard cv/gate operation (cv1 at 1v/octave, cv2 can still be scaled with input2 potmeter), waveform modulation through cv jack inputs and extensive oscillator sync for all 3 vco’s switchable between 0 and the other 2 vco’s and adjustable with potmeter (which makes for some great soft syncing).
The external box also shows switches for lo/hi switching for all three oscillators, but this circuit has been removed because this mod resulted in interference with the oscillators performance and stability. (This VCS 3 is really quite stable, nothing compared to the original.) SO: NO hi/lo switching for the oscillators !
Then, everything works as it should. The VCS 3 can be used with the mod-box attached or detached. I recommend you switch the power off when connecting or disconnecting the box. There are no scratchy pots or bad matrix spots, bad pins or whatever. It’s in great shape all over.
As for the looks, the Putney looks great, but some minor remarks should be made. First of all, at one point the cabinet was loose and instead of glueing it back together, someone had the bad idea of putting in two screws. I have thought of filling the holes with liquid wood filler, but decided not to. It’s on the top, so barely visible and it hasn’t really disturbed me. Another part of the cabinet, on the backside, has been reinforced with a small metal plate. Then there are some minor, truly minor spots on the horizontal face of the synth, above the joystick. I don’t know why i mention it, but it’s there if you look carefully. And finally, there are no metal inserts on the knobs. I think there never have been, it’s always been this way and there is no glue residue or whatsoever on the knobs.” Auction ended. Click here to browse on eBay.

“This is a vintage EMS SYNTHI AKS in excellent condition. Excellent working condition & beautiful cosmetic condition, no issues, less than normal wear. A few light scratches on case, all latches & handle are perfect. I rarely used the sequencer & do not have the patch book. By experimentation I was able to play a sequence & also played it as a keyboard. Speakers, joystick, & meter are perfect. This synth sounds fantastic ! I’ve owned it for 11 years & have performed or recorded with: Alien Planetscapes, Analog Synthesizer Ensemble, Cyndee Lee Rule, Doug Walker, Ethereal, Esprit 220, Hal McGee, Dave Fuglewicz, & Scattered Planets. The synth was always been treated with special care & has never been serviced or had any issues.
