"This is my rare QUASIMIDI 309-Groove-X rare KLAUS SCHULZE LIMITED EDITION now for sale in London.

It's a special version of the Rave-O-Lution 309 with a black finish, Klaus Schulze signature, special patterns, and two expansion sound memories on board.

The 309 is basically a Roland TR808/909 style drum machine plus a TB303 style bassline synth and sequencer, with dozens of drum, percussion and synth sounds to choose from, four audio outputs, two audio input, built-in effects and MIDI.

As such it's great for dance and DJ composers, and in this version particularly good for synth/sequencer composers too. There are patterns onboard which sound like entire Klaus Schulze techno albums alone.

The bass drum, snare and hi-hat sounds can be chosen from a whole bank of samples and have pitch and decay altered. There's a 12-note polyphonic bank of percussion sounds which include a lot of synth and string hits so make the instrument sound more like a polyphonic synth. The mono lead/bass synth of course has variable lowpass filter with resonance, and there's an overall Overblast overdrive as well as delay, flanger, reverb and other effects.

Patterns can be composed and chained into Songs and dumped via MIDI.

This 309 is in very good condition and includes rack ears and original power supply. There's a slight bend in the top left of the panel which isn't noticeable when rackmounted. Occasionally it's a little eccentric - some buttons sometimes need a firmer press than others and the display which usually flicks back to Tempo when it's not doing anything else sometimes stays on the last parameter you've edited. Nothing major though.

I'd like this to be collected in London (UK) and paid in cash. I will ship to the UK and to the USA, Germany and the rest of Europe, but you'll have to arrange payment by bank transfer or some other reliable method as I don't use PayPal.

More contact details for me on my website"
