Vintage Synth Scans

Click here for pdf scans of various synth brochures and articles. I tried to list all models below. Apologies for the long list but if you are searching for this stuff via your favorite search engine, this is the only way it'll come up, and finding that oddball rare scan can be absolute gold.

  1. Thanx a lot!
    Fantastic work!
    The synth story scans are killer!
    (oh, that PPG wave 2.0!)

  2. I have the synth story mag part 1 somewhere at home. Great mag!

    I know one of the authors hangs on AH sometimes (and perhaps here!)

  3. Hi there, thanks a lot for posting scans of these vintage catalogs. I just wish I could read French though :)

    Btw, some of the Roland pdf's (eg the 1981 and 1984 catalogs)don't seem to work, do you think you could fix this?

    thanks again
