2 x Rhodes Chroma Analog Poly Synths with CC+ MIDI & Extras

via this auction

"The Chroma is a rare thing, a 35 year old analog synth thats still supported by the original engineer and a group of dedicated Chroma fans. There is a very active Chroma group managed via with a lot of interesting discussion and activity.

Chroma 1 is fully functional, new PSU and CC+ upgrade installed latest CC+ OS ROM installed V2.18. Complete with pedals and MIDI interface.

Chroma 2 is not functional. Has a new PSU and CC+ upgrade already installed but needs CMOS chips replaced on voice and controller boards and a good calibration. There is a CC+ OS ROM v2.18 included but not installed. There is also a spare v2.14 ROM from Chroma 1.

Included in this package are 2 sets of footpedals, 2 CC+ MIDI interfaces, a Behrringer BCR2000 with 2 Chromatrol adhesive overlays. There is a sysex avail;abe file to set up the BCR2000 which will operate as a dedicated programmer. I had intended to use two BCR's one for each layer, but didn't get around to purchasing the 2nd BCR, hence the two overlays. You can use one BCR for both layers, switching between via a dedicated switch. There are also two component complete Chroma voice cards and these need calibrating."
