  1. The Keytek CTS 5000R sound module is 19 inch rack mountable version of the Keytek 5000 synthesizer keyboard. It features 8 bit compressed sound samples and the same wavetable synthesizer engine as it's sibling the CTS 5000. There are common on board keyboard sounds like piano, bass, rhodes, clavinet and more. The sounds are based on wave tables stored in 8 bit format. The sound is very similar to the Roland D-50 synthesizer of the same era however it is a wave table based synthesizer where you get one wave table per voice.The unit operates in stereo and also has velocity response.

  3. The Multivox MX-150 - Basky II is an organ-style bass pedal that offers a lot more and is similar to the Moog model bass pedals with synth featiures such as filter cutoff and resonance. the unit has 5 knobs and 7 switches for manipulating the sound. The button style switches let the player raise the octave up or down, hold the sound, change the attack, and mute or expand sound. Expand is Multivox's term for filter resonance.

  5. The Multivox MX-65 Polyphonic synthesizer manufactured from 1977-1978. It has six voices. Piano, strings, clavichord, honky-tonk, piano and organ. The voices themselves are different combinations of the filter and envelope positions that you can switch between. The filter is controlled with an envelope with 3 modes. A fast attack/fast decay mode, an ‘expand’ mode with resonance emphasis, and a fast attack/slow decay mode. View full synthesizer

  15. The Residents - The Ghost Of Hope
  16. Exorcising Ghosts is a compilation album by the British band Japan, released in October 1984 by record label Virgin. Exorcising Ghosts was compiled and produced in consultation with lead singer David Sylvian two years after Japan dissolved. It features three recordings from the band's early career on the Hansa Records label (such as 1979's Quiet Life) but mainly focuses on material from their two studio albums on Virgin Records; Gentlemen Take Polaroids (1980) and Tin Drum (1981). Besides top 40 hit singles like "Quiet Life", "Visions of China", "Ghosts", and "Nightporter", the double-album set includes album tracks like "Methods of Dance", "Talking Drum" and "Swing" alongside a selection of rarities such as the single B-sides "A Foreign Place" and "Life Without Buildings", the 1981 remix of "Taking Islands in Africa", the instrumental studio recording "Voices Raised in Welcome, Hands Held in Prayer" included on 1983's live album Oil on Canvas and the 12" mix of "The Art of Parties". Note: the abridged, single disc CD version of Exorcising Ghosts features the 7" single version of "The Art Of Parties" and omits five of the sixteen tracks: "Swing", "A Foreign Place", "Taking Islands in Africa", "Sons of Pioneers" and "Voices Raised in Welcome, Hands Held in Prayer". Exorcising Ghosts reached No. 45 in the UK Albums Chart and was certified Gold (100,000 copies) by the BPI in February 1997.[citation needed] Seven years after the release of Exorcising Ghosts Japan recorded a new studio album, but under the new moniker Rain Tree Crow.

  18. The Korg VC-10 Vocoder is one of the most exciting additions to the outstanding Korg line of keyboard instruments and accessories, and opens creative possibilities heretofore available only to a handful of musicians in studio-type applications. Now, the Korg VC-10 makes possible for all musicians to make their music appear to "speak"! Although Vocoders have existed for many years, their application to music, particularly in "live performance" situations, has been severely limited, due to their prohibitively high cost and complex operation. In contrast, the new Korg VC-10 is greatly simplified in operation, is the first and only self-contained unit, with a built-in polyphonic keyboard sound source, and is priced at a level every musician can afford.

  20. The Korg DVP-1 was originally released in 1986 and offers a full range of effects processing algorithms. It includes a vocoder, 5 voice harmonizer, chorus, pitch shifter, and can even function as a polysynth with the internal waveforms used in the harmonizer. MIDI in/out/thru on the back makes it extremely easy to start up your own robot choir straight from your keyboard. View full synthesizer

  22. One of the development themes for the PS-3100 that went on sale the preceding year was how to pack “big synth” circuitry into a limited space. It had been a struggle to make the circuitry as compact as possible in order to avoid lowering the specs. The circuitry developed for the comparably behemoth PS-3100 was utilized in the MS-20 to create a monophonic synthesizer which had two sets of VCO, VCF, VCA, and EG, as well as a patch panel and a module for external audio input and CV conversion. In keeping with its philosophy of being a synthesizer with as broad an appeal as possible, it was designed under rigorous cost management, and the dimensions of its sheet metal body were also chosen for reasons of economy. In particular, the powerful sound of its filter became a distinctive characteristic of the MS-20, making it representative of "the Korg sound." View full synthesizer

  24. Korg MS-50
  25. The Korg MS-50 is the fully patchable top model of the MS series Introduced as an expansion module for the MS-10/20, the MS-50 is a rare model within the MS series. Based on MS-20, it had no keyboard, but added internal circuits such as a divider and integrator not found on the MS-10/20, which supported even more complex ways of creating sound. The voltmeter on the upper right-hand side of the panel captured the hearts of many synth players. Of course, it could also be played on its own by using CV/Gate signals. While the MS-10/20 provided a basic signal route that was internally connected, and therefore could be played without any patching, the MS-50 used a fully patch-reliant design. By using the MS-50 in conjunction with an MS-10/20 or the SQ-10 described below, it was possible to construct a larger-scale modular system. View full synthesizer
