Doepfer Sampler, for parts gate cv?

Click here for some shots pulled via this auction. Anyone know what this is? I took a quick look at the Doepfer site and couldn't find it. Note the panel graphics look off center. Homebrew?

via synth ollie.

Update: synth ollie found some more info: "Doepfer CV/Gate controlled modular sound sampler system that was available about between 1985 and 1990. Up to 8 sampling voices could be controlled by a Commodore C64. Software for sampling, FM synthesis, Wavetable synthesis, Fourier synthesis and Waveshaping synthesis were available for the C64. The complete system was also described in detail (including schematics and boards) in the book called "Sound Sampler" published by Elektor (ISBN 3-921608-44-9) in 1988. At this time memory chips were very expensive. Most of the pc board is covered by the memory chips."

Also via swissdoc in the comments:
"There is a book from 1988 by Dieter Döpfer and Cristian Assall, Sound-Sampler, Elektor Verlag 1988, Aachen, ISBN 3-921608-44-9

I have a copy by chance.

It is about building a modular sampler, C64 is used for editing. You had a Sound Sampler Input/Interface module and per voice a Sound Sampler Memory-Card.

The picture above shows a 6-Voice system, the Input/Interface module is left, then 6 times the Memory-Card, each with a HS-VCO to get the pitch and a Curtis filter.
