RSF Modular 11: Largest collection worldwide?


flickr By jobenbelgium

"I think that this is the biggest RSF Modular 11 system in the world.Not seen many of these since the 15 years i'm playing synthesizers/ modulars. Also notice the RSF Polyclavier,wich gives you 8x cv-gate, sequencer, arpeggiator. The best known product by RSF was the Kobol Expander, which was also available in a monophonic keyboard,and there was also the bigger Polykobol, but these have been built in low quantitys."

Update via tesl@ in the comments: "The biggest RSF system is an custom full 8 voice,full modular patchable and with memorys aswell for the knobs and patches (yes!) its hosted all in 19'' format racks. Only 2 prototype systems where made. Peter B. was one of the conceptors.

The systems still excist,on is in Belgium the other in USA."

And via D' Naab 136:
"These big 8 voice systems with memory are not modular 11 systems.
These are systems composed of 8 x expander I's, 2 x expander II's, 2 x prorammers and polyclavier.
More than 2 exist:
-I know of one here in Belgium.
-One of these monsters was sold last year for only 9000 EUR in France.
-Another one was also up for auction at vemia last year."
