New England Digital Synclavier Project Machine

“New England Digital Synclavier Keyboard Complete System **Read**. Manuals, Floppy Dics, Printer, Cables, Road Cases included. This Synclavier System was originally purchased by The University of Alabama Electronic Music Program in the mid 1980’s. It was Studio kept since the 80’s. I purchased it several years ago, at that time it was not working. I started refurbishing it and spent several hours with going through the system. I replaced one of the circuit boards (see photos) which allowed the keyboard section to power up. Due to circumstances I packed it away and planned on continuing to test and refurbish it. I have decided to sell it and pass it on to a new owner. I’m listing it as “For parts or not working”. I’m also listing it as “Local Pickup” but will consider transporting it within 250 miles of Tuscaloosa, Alabama. Thanks for looking!! The last few photos are of the circuit boards in the main rack ” Click here to visit listing on eBay

“This is an extremely rare Synclavier Digital Audio System. This system belonged to Jim Johnston (Composer for the WWE) and was used in his recording studio. The Synclavier is completely functional and in very clean condition overall. This machine is interfaced using two Apple towers and monitoring screen. The Synclavier also includes an extensive sound library full of some of the best samples ever recorded of a large range of instruments, from orchestral, synthesizers, vocals, percussion and foley sounds. There are a few extra cables and rack panels that we are bundling into this lot as extra options for the next owner. Selling this at local pickup only. The purchaser can give this set up a complete test in person to see everything working”

Synclavier PSMT Project Machine

“I purchased this new Synhouse Reference Standard Synclavier PSMT system (mine has 16mb/32 voice) in 2017. It worked and sounded great for 9 months. However, now it is no longer communicating with the poly bin. I already sold the keyboard so this is the tower only. I am selling this tower for thousands less than I paid. It is highly unlikely that this repair will be anywhere near that. It could be something as simple as a bad cable. In short, someone is going to get a great deal.”

Synclavier PSMT

“This listing is for a rare & vintage Synclavier PSMT Synthesizer keyboard workstation. The workstation includes everything photographed. There are multiple different units and 7 tubs full of different cords. All of the items photographed were kept together, so I assumed it all belongs to this unit, but I am not 100% sure.

***This unit is being sold untested in as is condition without returns. I have no idea how to even begin setting it up to test its functionality. It came from a storage estate that had a wide variety of musical recording equipment.*** ”
