I actually got a chance to spend some hands on time with one of these back when I was in college in the 80's. It was sitting idle as the studio it was in had recently bought a then-all-the-rage DX-7. The one I used was married to a Kaypro "portable computer" which was required to do any programming of sounds (I remember that it attached via an RS232 interface and used 8" floppies...yes *eight inch* floppies). Without the Kaypro and programming software and without any additional voice cartridges, the usability of this is as an active piece of studio gear is probably very limited.

I read that there are apparently only about 100 of these left in working order...

I still own one and a Kaypro. In the mid 80's I paid $4000 and about $600 for the Kaypro. Sometimes i think I had more dollars than sense. In fact if want to hear a production done in the mid 8o's using the Synergy go to www.fojom.com, select Albums, "Another Day Closer", song #8-Chasing The Wind.
