Looks like the love child of a Jupiter 8!

I actually saw one of these units with the matching volume/foot pedal for sale in a shop in Tacoma over the summer...I don't remember the price, but it's probably still there if you're interested.

Thanks... I'm actually not looking to buy anything for awhile. In fact, I might be selling a piece or two in the coming week...

The Auto-Orchestra I saw wasn't !!$900!! like the one on ebay. I do remember that I actually dinked around the one I saw and that it had a metal plaque affixed to it that said something like "Custom sounds for" and then some guy's name. The preset patterns were mainly very dated "oohm pah" type stuff. If I remember correctly it included a volume pedal and a 13 note "Taurus" type set of pedals that has a row of start/stop/pattern change buttons up top (which I don't see included with the ebay listing).

What gear are you putting up for sale (not the xpander!!!)?

Tom said...

Yeah, those weird kind of accompaniment synths are a lot of cheesy fun, but not for $900! And yes, as a matter of fact, the Xpander IS going up for sale! It's a great synth, but I don't use it that often, and the taxman cometh!
