Paia 5700P, 4-Voice Analog Percussion Synth "The Drum"


via this auction

"This listing is for one extremely rare Paia "The Drum" 5700P Analog Percussion Synthesizer. It is essentially a cab filled with 4 identical modules that can generate a sound that is suited to percussive analog tones. It can be triggered via any sound source, including other drums, eurorack, a drum machine, etc. (voltage trigger OR audio into the 1/4" jack). Each voice also has CV in that tracks across a few octaves so they can also be used as a stand-alone synth voice for basslines, melodies, etc. if so desired.

The sound can be described as very raw and weighty, similar to other early analog percussion units like the Simmons SDSV and 808. This unit works very well for it's age, though some pots could use some cleaning."
