Update: some warnings on this one in the comments below. When you buy through eBay, buy through eBay for the buyer protection. I cannot stress it enough. If you try and make a deal outside of eBay to save some money, you risk getting scammed.


"Offered is an Ems made Rehberg logic synthi, serial no. 008, from 1980 as well as the corresponding control keyboard DKE / A / L Serial no. 91.
VERY RARE TO FIND ONE COMPLETE WITH KEYBOARD!

The modular synthesizer in the case has only minimal usage traces and was checked in 2017 by an audio specialist. A new power supply was replaced as a replacement for the original power supply. In addition, the slide potentiometer of the filter module was replaced by a slightly more gentle potentiometer.

In addition to the power supply new patch cables as well as the original patch cable (standard mini-jack), a 5-pin connection cable for the keyboard, the cover of the "Koffersynthies" and the original manual (or textbook) are included.

All modules of the Synthis work perfectly, the overall sound and especially the filter sound very high quality.

The modular synthesizer built in a suitcase has only minimal signs of use, no broken parts or other damages. It was tested in 2017 by an audio service and a new power adapter. So the slider potentiometer of the filter module is replaced by a new one.

The EMS synthesizer comes with new patch cables as well as the original patchcables, which are standard mini jack, a five-pole connecting cable for the keyboard, the cover of the suitcase synthesizer and an original manual / instruction book.

All modules of the synth work perfectly, the all-over sound of the unit is the filter features a rich, high-quality sound.

The external keyboard can not control the synthesized pitch and envelope fire control has only one of the keyboards.

All of the keys are in a good working condition, sometimes
unintended glissandi can occur when playing fastly, which is a typical problem of the EMS peripherals that use a control voltage.

The modular synthesizer contains the following modules that are explained in detail in a special feature of the Ems.

VCO with saw-wave, triangle- and squarewave and an external control- input for the pulse wide-modulation

VCF 12db multimode lowpass, bandpass and highpass filter, resonance controllable in three steps. The filter as well can be used as sine-wave oscillator when self resonating

LFO with sine and square wave
SRG slow ramp generator
NG white noise generator
EG envelope generator
(ADSR)
RM ring modulator
INV inverter for control voltages
SL portamento
2 x external audio input with preamp and one envelope follower
Output mix section
Internal keyboard (CV)
Control inputs for external sequencers (CV) and external keyboard."
