Digitana Synthi AKS KS Expander Prototype

"via Digitana where you'll find additional details.

'I have completed the prototype of a new module project I have been developing for a while, namely an 'Expansion' unit for the Synthi AKS Keyboard Sequencer (KS). It could work equally with an EMS TKS (the version of the KS EMS made as a standalone unit to be used with a VCS3 mk2). Infact the prototype was tested using a KS connected to my VCS3(mk2). The KS is a great feature of the Synthi AKS and while its no shakes compared to modern hardware sequencers its what makes the Synthi AKS arguably the most desirable of all the portable Synthi's. What the KS offers is 3 channels of CV into the Synthi Matrix: two pitch CV channels via Input Ch1 and the Seq Input (the latter recordable via the sequencer the former real time via the touch sensitive keyboard) in addition to a dynamic envelope CV via Input Ch2 whose amplitude varies with how hard the touch keys are played.'"
