1977-1978 ELEKTOR Magazines Featuring Formant DIY Modular
via this auction
"ELEKTOR - Formant Synthesizer build features, Schematics and PCB layouts!
This is a nearly complete set of the original month by month build instructions for the Elektor Formant synth!
The lot includes 12 issues from April 1977 to October 1978.
Issues 24, 25, 26, 31, 32 (2 copies), 33, 34, 35, 37, 38, 42.
The mags are an amazing snapshot of the hobby electronics scene in the late 1970s, but I am obviously selling these because of the Formant sections.
Issues 24-35 are the ones with the actual Formant features, schematics and PCB layouts.
There are a few missing (27-30), but even if you don't already have the others, this is a VERY rare opportunity to pick up the original magazines with the schematics and build diary in, rather than relying on scans on the web.
I'm throwing in 3 more issues, Issue 37 also has half of the C.Chapman VOCODER design as well !!!
They are all in absolutely fantastic condition. You will also get the official 1978 Elektor binder."
