70s VINTAGE ANALOG MODULAR PAIA 2720 SYNTH


via this auction

"Rare PAiA 2720 modular synthesizer. I bought this one from Robert Rich a long time ago (https://robertrich.com/).

I am selling it untested. It is my understanding that it was working before I bought it, but it was built from a kit, so I am not making any guarantees about condition. it is missing some screws, has some rusty screws and spots, and the case around the pitch knob is loose.

'The Paia 2720 Synthesizer was a self contained modular synthesizer that you could build from a kit and add modules and features as desired. It was advertised heavily in many electronic magazines and and as a featured article in them. the instrument being modular made it extremely flexible and cost effective for musicians to get into synthesizers. Paia founder John Simonton published a series of articles on the 2700 series in Radio Electronics during it's time.

It has a single Voltage control oscillator with Ramp, triangle, pulse or pulse width. It also has a EG aka in Paia lingo as Function Generator.
With manual trigger button and attack and decay, and variable attenuator. 2 filters one low pass and the other bandpass with resonance control.

Additionally there is a Low Frequency Oscillator and Voltage controlled Amplifier, a 3 octave keyboard with glide control and pitch transpose with two trigger outs and one control voltage out.'"
