"This is my first jam with Mark Owens' amazing /innovative Goom synthesizer (quinapalus.com) ported by Thorsten Klose (midibox.org) to an stm32f4 discovery board. This thing is super simple, super inspiring and super fun to play. As the ST board has a built in DAC and usb ports there is no soldering required...simply download drivers from ST, install the MIDIbox mios32 bootloader, then upload the project.hex (found in the midibox thread) to the board...done! Use synthy's ctrlr panel (ctrlr.org) to use this synth as a VST or standalone on a PC or mac; the best way to store patches so far. Beats the pants off of any atmega / arduino synth..."

via the seller: "This one just came back from the shop. I had all the pots replaced and the face shocks replaced with new ones. There is one problem with this and it is that it need all the factory sounds reloaded. It comes with original owner's manual and system disk. Operating system is 1.668."

via the seller: "I bought this at a studio sale in NYC in the late 90's and used it exclusively in my home studio until the mid-2000s both studios were non-smoking and clean. I recently had it completely tuned, cleaned, electronics checked, calibrated, bushings replaced, etc. There are some minor cosmetic issues which I tried to capture in the photos. Notably a split/crack in the wood case on the right side of the keyboard, some discoloration/staining on the keys on that side of the keyboard as well and 2 non-original knobs for 1 oscillator ('modulation mix' and 'glide'). Also, at some point someone tried to do some sort of mod, you'll notice the switch on upper left corner of the control panel, I have no idea what this was and had the non-original internals removed (the switch on the front panel is still there but could easily be removed as well). The action on the keyboard is great and all knobs and switches function perfectly with no scratching or noise. The Serial Number is 6253 which I believe makes this instrument from the mid-70s. There is also a small piece of yellow construction paper scotch taped underneath the circuit box which says "Nov. 1974" in old typewriter font."

via the seller: "Old key bed started to show signs of red glue disaster so I bit the bullet and ordered and installed a brand new keyboard assembly. Plays exceptionally good now (better quality key bed heh heh ). Enjoy! By the way You can also use the sliders to control your Roland JD 990!"
Curious how the AT is on it now. The AT on old Roland's sometimes required so much force you felt like you were going to snap the keys off.
