Sequential Circuits Pro One

“This is a Sequential Circuits Pro One synthesizer.
I am including a DI box in the package (as this eliminates audio hum).

The main circuit board was built in April 1982.
The serial number on the board and the one on the casing don’t match, which would suggest to me that the synth is a combination of two previous synths.
I have made a few improvements / fixes to the synth since I bought it:
A complete clean inside and out. All switches have been cleaned as have all key contact points.
Some capacitors have been replaced.
An internal ribbon has been replaced (bought from Wine Country Productions Inc).
I have bought wooden end cheeks for the synth, since these were missing.
I have also replaced a mod wheel (which was broken) with a clear acrylic wheel.
There is audio hum. Apparently, this is a very common feature of the Pro One and is due to a ground loop (an original design oversight).
The DI box eliminates the hum, and this is why I am providing the DI box with the synth.
I’ve tuned the synth using the variable resistors (pots). The tuning is pretty good across the keyboard, but will no doubt need readjusting from time to time.”

Very rare vintage analogue from Jen in Italy. Super weird unique sound.

Access Virus b Project Machine

“The synth seems to work at first, but after 30 minutes the screen goes blank and the synth becomes unusable. All original capacitors have been replaced with Nichicon for better sound before this problem. The synth was sent for diagnostics and was told the problem is that one of the circuit lines to one of the chips is not getting enough proper voltage, which could be a bad capacitor connection. I dont want to invest in repair which could be simple to a pro. My loss is your gain.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

Kurzweil 1000 SX

“This string expander module has some great string sounds, especially the low bass section and the high strings. Some of the solo sounds are just average. I’m the original owner. I used it extensively in the late 80’s through 2004 on numerous commericals and multi-media projects. I left the biz in late 2004, and it’s been mounted in a rack in my smoke-free, personal use studio since then. It’s mostly been left powered off. I don’t recall if the display ever had a backight, I don’t believe it did. However, if it did, it certainly doesn’t any more. The display is readable in a well lit room from the right angles. I’ve tested it, and it’s working great and still sounds great. It includes the original manual, which in itself is quite a novelty. I’m selling it because I’m unlikely to write music any more, and it’s time for this module to find a new home where it can be put to good use.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

Oberheim Matrix 6R

“I’m the original owner. Bought it some time in the late 80’s or early 90’s. Used it on various commercials and multi-media projects until around 2004, when I left the biz. It’s been sitting in a rack in my smoke-free, personal studio since then. It hasn’t even been powered up much in the last 17 years. It was in very good cosmetic condition, until I tried to clean the sticky residue from a label off the top left front the other day. That cleaning solution caused the finish to smear and look ugly. I’ve tried to provide several pictures and angles of that discoloration so that you can see it clearly. There’s also a light scratch in the upper right part of the display.
I’ve tested its operations, and it’s working great, midi connections and response are good, and it’s still got that fantastic Oberheim analog synth sound. I reset it to all the factory original presets. I even still have the manual.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

The Clap Trap can be triggered a number of ways using it’s external ¼ inch trigger inputs or manually via buttons on the top of the unit. There is also an Automatic repeat trigger mode that triggers the Clap Trap synth with a user selectable retriggering rate. The “Auto” mode is extremely useful when designing a synthesized clap sound with the front panel controls. Another unique feature on the Clap Trap is a Humanizer button that adds subtle variations to the clap sample speed and duration giving the clap synth a more human feel when triggered.

This unit has been tested and works and sounds great! I’m the original owner and purchased it directly from one of the first Simmons sales reps, Reek Havoc, way back in the 1980’s when it first came out. ” Click here to visit listing on eBay

Roland Promars MRS-2

“The Promars is a genuinely underrated synth. Conceived as a monophonic version of a Jupiter, it is capable of some really thick sounds. It has a second oscillator that the Jupiter lacks as well as a great filter.

This is in working order, though I have never tried using the cv and gate inputs. It is a little dirty and the screw heads are pretty rusty but this is cosmetic.

It does include the original music stand and manual as well as the Roland hard case for protecting it. The Promars is a 100v Japanese import so you will need a step down voltage converter.”

Roland Juno 106

“I’ve had this synth for the last 8 years and it has been kept in air conditioned studios or at home.

I bought it in 2013 and then had it serviced and refurbished by Cyberwave EMS (vintagesynths.co.uk), who repaired all 6 voice chips, fitted a new battery, and replaced some sliders.

It has a minor, rare issue with the display which makes it a little harder to read. It’s been this way since I have had it, makes no difference to the sound and easy to operate regardless.

The middle C key does not work. Other than this the synth plays great, so many killer classic sounds and great fun to play and customise.” Click here to visit listing on eBay
