ARP 2800 Modular

images via this auction.
"one of a kind ARP 2800 analog modular synthesizer. This synth started out its life as an ARP odyssey MarkII (black and gold faced unit), which then had its keyboard removed, front panel hand brushed and refinished, custom durable (water proof) sticker artwork (which is reminiscent of the original artwork) created and applied, and then reassembled in a custom plywood modular cabinet. The back panel of the cabinet has space to tuck the attached power cord into. Also added are 1/4" jacks tapping off nearly all the signal outputs, and allowing you to insert any signal into the signal modulation selector switches. And also adding several 4x jack multiples. The unit works fine, but when the modifications were done, it disabled the use of the CV portamento control, and the octave range select switch. The synth can be controlled with standard 1V/Oct CV input and positive polarity gate signals. I think this unit also had a snappy envelope mod done to the ADSR envelope, as I always found the ARP envelopes not quite fast enough for my tastes."
