Cwejman QMMF-4 Multimode Filter/Resonator

via this auction

"An absolute monster of module that can be used as a filterbank, resonator or 4 voice synth (just add envelopes!) that sounds great no matter what you ask it to do.

'The big brother to the infamous Cwejman RES-4, the QMMF-4 boasts the following features:

Each filter has an individual audio input, two controls for coarse and fine adjustment of cutoff frequency, two cutoff CV inputs (CM1 adjustable, CM CAL with 1V/oct) as well as the voltage controllable Q-PEAR resonance circuit with three modes: OSC allows for self-oscillation, OSC SAT as well but with saturation (like the MMF-2), RES doesn't self oscillate but is perfect for filter ringing (like the RES-4). Switchable filter types are low pass, band pass and high pass; the notch is available separately The filter is followed by a VCA (output fader) with the according LEVEL CV input. The LP/BP/HP signal can be output both pre fader and post fader (pre or post VCA), the notch is not affected by this.

The master section affects and controls all four filters simultaneously, in addition to the individual CVs. The section has a master cutoff control with a Freq CV input, a master audio input sending it's signal to all four filters. The dry/wet control is voltage controllable, the wet signal's level can be set separately and is voltage controllable. The master notch output carries the mix of all notch filters, the MMF output the mix of all multimode filters.'"

Rare Vintage 1978 Oberheim Cassette Interface for OB-1/Four/Eight Voice

via this auction

"Rare vintage 1978 Oberheim Electronics Cassette Interface for OB-1/Four Voice/Eight Voice. Back in the day, this unit would be used to save a library of presets from your Oberheim synthesizer as audio on a cassette tape. Today it could more easily be used to save presets as audio files on your computer. This unit powers up and is in EXCELLENT cosmetic condition (you'd be hard-pressed to find a nicer one) but since I no longer have my OB-1 I have no way to test it and it is sold as is. It was working last time I used it however. Comes with the ORIGINAL manual."

"Here is a vintage USA made Moog (mini moog) Model D synthesizer that was made in August 21, 1972. All functions have been tested. All of the switches, knobs, wheels and inputs/outputs work. The pots are somewhat scratchy and could be cleaned and the power cord has a short in it and needs replaced. If the power cord is in a certain position it will power up the synth and stay on. All Oscillators, Noise (white and pink) generator, Envelope generator, Filter section, Pitch and mod wheels, Glide, Master volume and Controller section work. The key action is very good and no keys are misaligned. The serial number for this Moog is 1657. This Moog operates on 115 volts. If it is used overseas, a power converter will be needed."

Hammond 102100, Rare Analog Synthesizer

via this auction

"Up for auction is a ridiculously rare Hammond 102100 Analog Synthesizer. It is a product of the early 70's and certainly sounds like it, with a huge, thick and powerful sound that only 70's analog synthesizers possess. It is essentially a 1 VCO monosynth with a few presets and a manual (or panel, you could call it) mode where you can customize your patch. There are several footings for saw/square wave, several filter settings, LFO mod of the filter, vibrato, envelopes for both the VCF and VCA, etc. All of the buttons work, as do the keys. It stays in tune extremely well.

It is a bit dirty and is missing the wood side panels. The top of the unit comes off and the various boards can be calibrated/adjusted. It has a 1/4" output on the back of the unit."
