YMO's Roland System 100M For Sale?
via this auction
"The modules are:
-150 Ring Mod/S&H/Noise Gen/LFO
Not sure if anyone even cares about the history of this specific unit, but this 100M was previously owned by Haruomi Hosono (Yellow Magic Orchestra). I purchased it directly from him in 2006. He apparently used the 100Ms all over his 'Philharmony' album. Harry claimed it was one of the first 100M synths to leave the Roland facilities.. I believe he was selling 5 of them at the time? He was also the first person to receive a TR-808 and credited as the first to release an album with MC-4 and TR-808, if that means anything. The guy was basically a lab rat for Roland in the late 70s and early 80s..."
