Akai VX600

“Rare 6 voice 12 oscillator digitally controlled Akai analog synth from 1988. If you’re looking for this you probably know what it is. The ‘matrix’ in the name means you can route modulation in weird ways. I bought this in 2017, after years of waiting for one to appear on eBay, from a boutique synth seller who fully serviced the VX before selling it to me. It’s been used in a smoke-free home studio setup since then, and well taken care of. Backlight has been replaced, everything functions as it should. I’m including a Roland M-256E memory card that works with this unit. Power is Japanese but a US convertor will also be supplied.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

“This Akai VX600 powers on and all keys and patches work. The true issues of this key board lie within the bend/glide/breath potentiometers that do not alternate the sound whatsoever which ever way you turn them. The vibrate knob is also completely broken. As mentioned before, every other function is working. These Akai VX600 are desirable and be quiet expensive. Now is your chance to get into this keyboard for a great price and restore it to its true and powerful full glory” Click here to visit listing on eBay

“For your consideration I have a used AKAI VX-600 analog synthesizer. It’s 100% functional and sounds amazing. I don’t think any synth manufacture today is building them like this anymore. The VX-600 is a polyphonic analog VCO matrix synthesizer just like the Oberheim Xpander. It has 6 individual outputs for each voice and the keyboard has velocity and aftertouch! All of its components are through hole discrete. This synth is built like a tank and it is portable. I popped the hood to show the condition of the components. I also took out one of the beautiful voice cards to show off the CEMs. A lot of people like to bash this synth online but most of them didn’t get past the presets, this synthesizer needs to be tweaked to bring out the best. Honestly if it was really that bad you would see them for sale everywhere. Even the old great mono synths get drifty after playing them for a while, thats just how vintage VCO synths are. Even my guitar needs tuning after shredding lol. This VX-600 still has all of its presets, most of them are okay but there are a couple really good string pads and unison bass patches that sound amazing.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

“Der VX-600 gehört zu den besten analogen Synthesizer mit Midi. Er ist
 mit den gleichen VCO’s und Filter wie der Oberheim Matrix 12 oder Oberheim Expander bestückt CEM 3374 Dual-VCO Chips ( 3374+
3372 )
Auch die Modulationsroutings sind Dank der Matrix Modulation wohl mit
 die besten .
Alles in allem ist der VX-600 wohl eine Klasse für sich und zudem noch 
extrem selten .
Der VX-600 ist voll funktionsfähig und in sehr guten optischen Zustand, mit hellem neuem Display, 2 Speicherkarten um Presets zu speichern, Netzkabel, Tasche und allen Bedienungsanleitungen als PDF.” Click here to visit listing on eBay
