CASIO CZ-101 synth with 4-bank cartridge and soft case

via this auction

"I am the original owner of this small but powerful synth. It has been well cared for and works great. Comes with a very rare MAARTISTS MRA-3 64 voice RAM memory cartridge (four banks of 16) so you are not stuck with just the 16 internal storge slots for your own sounds.

This great little synths uses PD (phase distortion) synthesis which is having a revival in many iPad synths. It uses multiple 8-stage envelopes, which, if you know about synths, is a pretty big deal. It also has a versatile LFO, a noise generator and a built in ring modulator. This little synth is easy to program and with a little time learning the ropes, you’ll be able to create some really outstanding and unique sounds.

The four octave keyboard has eight note polyphony and the synth engine is four-part multitimbral (four different sounds at once when used with a sequencer or external controller). It does not have velocity or aftertouch. But don’t let that stop you! This portable (battery powered!) synth is a monster. There are even pegs on the ends to attach a guitar strap so you can dance around while you play!"
