PAiA Electronic Synthesizer Module Kits

“PAIA Electronic Synthesizer Module Kits 9730/K, 9710K, and 9710frm Unassembled. Condition is For parts or not working because I have no way of testing them before assembly. These are electronic kits from years and years ago. These came to me unopened, so I assume they are unchanged from the factory, so all the parts should be there. I have no way to be sure. The 9710K and 9730/K kits each include a pre-drilled printed circuit card. The 9710frm kit contains a pre-drilled, pre-printed control panel blank. There are NO instructions or diagrams, just the information sheets seen in the photos. If you are a PAiA synthesizer enthusiast, you will know what these are. I hope they will be useful to you! You are bidding on the set of three kits, not individual items. Happy bidding!” Click here to search for synths on eBay

“Classic analog synth, everything works great, comes with power supply. Midi in and thru, channel controlled by dip switches. Great sounding fat bass and liquidy acid lines and a nice snappy envelope. Great little synth for the money, and cool Moog Style k obs make this one really look great!” Click here to search for synths on eBay

PAiA 9700 Modular Synthesizer

“Paia 9700 series modular synth rig has been meticulously soldered with high-end audiophile solder. This unit includes a 8 step sequencer that incorporates the Ken Stone Sequential Switch ([link removed by eBay]) which is routed to a set of 8, completely bypass-able, control voltage knobs. This unit has two transformers, and two power supplies. One for the 9700 modules and one for the sequencer/potentiometer bank. This has been working in my smoke-free studio for 10 years. VCO 1v/octave tracking may need re-calibration, which is easy: I will include paper instructions and documents for each and every module including power supplies. Wooden case is sturdy white oak. Includes a handle on one side. Three power indicating LED’s are on a front panel that includes a few multiples (3.5mm and 1/4″ jacks wired in parallel), but the LED’s are not currently connected- this doesn’t effect function. This rack has plenty of LED’s!”

PAiA 4780 Sequencer

“If you are a PAiA Phan you know what this is and how rare it is! There are a few scratches on the face plate, as you can see. Also my beefy power supply kept blowing the 1/8W 47 Ohm resistor so I am including a few 1/4W for your DIY hands to replace. My eyesight and unsteady hands would only make matters worse! Last time (before it blew) it was working fine as were all the LEDs.

If you are not familiar with the PAiA 4700 series of modules this is not the sequencer you seek. It is not Eurorack (it’s not even FRAC and PAiA invented FRAC!). The power this puppy uses is +18, +/-9V and Ground. Those are not banana jacks for the CV and trigger outs. And because the pin jacks are not grounded, you would need to run a ground wire between the sequencer and whatever you are sequencing (Unless – of course – you are mounting the modules in a PAiA system cabinet using a common ground).

Having pointed out all the caveats, this is an incredible device. It is expandable with other 4780 sequencers. I has 3 running at one time. It’s a maximum of 12 stages. This turns it into an amazing envelope generator or LFO.

I will include some pin jack cables and I think I may even have pin to 3.5mm. I will also included the using and assembly guides.”

PAiA Oz

“PAiA OZ Mini Synthesizer Organ FM polyphonic. Condition is Used.

Battery should be 12V, but I’ve been using a 9V battery. Had had replacement CMOS IC’s and is missing the capacitance expression board, a finish ring around the speaker, and has replacement non-original latches and handle.

The LED’s indicating the highest and lowest octave setting do not work.

I added some alligator clips as touch contacts where the capacitance board would connect. ”

PAiA 4700 Modular

“Up for sale is this vintage PAiA 4700 Modular Analog Synthesizer W/ upgraded keyboard controller and extras. It’s condition is “Used” but system is in very good condition. The case and fittings are all in great shape. Both the synth and upgraded keyboard were assembled by a former PAiA engineer and this sale includes a bunch of extra hardware left over from his build. In addition to manuals for every installed module, some of the extras include various patch cables, IC chips, switches, potentiometers, a remote volume knob as well as an additional un-assembled Watt Block module (w/ power supply).

*This item has not been fully tested*
I do not guarantee that every module and/or feature works as intended. I’m not familiar with vintage modular set ups, so minimal testing has been done. However, I was able to create a patch that confirms the system powers up and can produce sound (see youtube video). Just from the appearance and condition alone, I really see no reason that it is not working properly although you are purchasing it as it sits.

Modules include:

– 3 Voltage Controlled Oscillators
– 2 Envelope Generators
– 1 Multi-band VCF
– 1 Watt Block
– 1 Power Supply
– 1 Inverter Buffer
– 1 Balanced Modulator
– 1 Envelope Follower
– 1 Control Oscillator
– 1 Mixer
– 1 Reverb
– 1 Voltage Controlled Amplifier” Click here to search for synths on eBay

PAiA Gnome

“This is a real treasure and a great learning tool for synthesizers. This multi-voice synthesizer from the mid-1970s was built from a kit and worked when it was retired, though I can’t promise it will now. It is solid-state, though, so why not? The schematics, procedure instructions, glossary, and setting/operating instructions are included so you can experiment away. Learn how the various electronics produce the sounds and learn how to control them. This is a nice, quality device.

The build instructions have been marked by the builder, so I won’t claim this is mint.” Click here to search for synths on eBay

PAiA 3740 Gnome

PAiA 9700

“P9700S Series Analog Modular Synthesizer. This is a set of modules that form a complete system in a 19” rack case. Sold by PAiA as a DIY kit, this one is fully assembled (seemingly a long time ago). It’s listed as “for parts or not working”, but it actually does work. It is quite worn. The surface has some scratches, labels of controls are hard to read. Some of the cable connections feel loose. All of the modules can be calibrated, and they probably need calibration. Every connection and knob does at least work, but I’m not sure the performance is 100% accurate.” Click here to search for synths on eBay

PAiA 6710 Vocoder

” A PAIA 6710 VOCODER ASSEMBLED. A RARE DISCONTINUED ITEM. ANOTHER PAIA KIT I BUILT. EVERYBODY KNOWS WHAT A VOCODER IS.
GREAT FOR PROCESSING VOCALS OR OTHER INSTRUMENTS. THIS WAS OVER $175 WHEN I BOUGHT THE KIT WITH THE FACEPLATE AN EXTRA $26. IT HAS NEVER BEEN RACK MOUNTED. I TESTED IT WITH A CD FOR PROGRAM INPUT, AND A OSCILLATOR FOR THE MODULATOR, AND WAS ABLE TO GET A MODULATED OUTPUT. SWEEPING THE OSCILLATOR IN THE AUDIO BAND GIVE A INTERESTING COMB FILTER /TIMBRE SHIFT TYPE EFFECT, WHILE RUNNING THE OSCILLATOR BELOW 100HZ, GIVES A GATED TREMOLO TYPE EFFECT IT. IT ALSO HAS A SWITCHABLE FUZZ EFFECT. A/C POWERED WITH A INCLUDED REGULATED DC SUPPLY. THE OWNER’S MANUAL IS ON THE PAIA DOWNLOADS PAGE.”

PAiA Theremax

“Here we have a PAIA ThereMax Theremin which I built approximately 20 years ago and used very little.

It is 100% solid state and includes a “wall wart” DC power supply.

It is built inside of the PAIA wooden lectern case.

Very good condition! (this unit with the wooden lectern case costs over $230 from PAIA and then you have to build up all of the electronics and finish the lectern case).

Works as it should!

Note: there is a little bit of dust on the front panel knobs which I will clean off before shipping.”

PAiA 2720 Project Machine

“Cool kit-built synth from the 1970’s. One of my college friends built this, and I used it on gigs in the 70’s and early 80’s. The original oscillator became unstable, so I replaced it with an updated one (which is why the plate color is slightly darker). You can hear the unique sounds this instrument can produce on YouTube.
Most of the modules are pictured.
I will include the 10 pin cords, 7 voltage control cords, and one main patch cord pictured, as well as all of the individual module manuals, a book on 2720 sound synthesis, and some patch charts (one is pictured).
It does get power, but I was unable to get more out of the output than a quiet buzz when I tested it. ” Click here to search for synths on eBay

Paia 5700P The Drum

“This listing is for one extremely rare Paia “The Drum” 5700P Analog Percussion Synthesizer. It is essentially a cab filled with 4 identical modules that can generate a sound that is suited to percussive analog tones. It can be triggered via any sound source, including other drums, eurorack, a drum machine, etc. (voltage trigger OR audio into the 1/4″ jack). Each voice also has CV in that tracks across a few octaves so they can also be used as a stand-alone synth voice for basslines, melodies, etc. if so desired.
The sound can be described as very raw and weighty, similar to other early analog percussion units like the Simmons SDSV and 808. This unit works very well for it’s age, though some pots/switches could use some cleaning. Because of the age of this piece, it is sold as-is.” Click here to search for synths on eBay
