"Designed by the designers of Oberheim Xpander so it has a very modular structure, lfos, envelope, modifiers etc - unique.... far more than a drum machine.

Calibrated (see photos of tests completed, satisfactorily), latest firmware installed, buttons tact switches (soldering req'd) replaced and VFD screen installed. New battery installed too. Interface cable is new also, i made one up with new connectors - the cable is not cheap.

Replacing the tact buttons is not easy either - before some says this is listed for too much.

VFD is expensive, from Japan, no longer made and this is a new VFD last of a line.

Arrives with samples on disk and programs loaded into the memory - the programs are lost from most units on sale as internal battery has died.

Very esoteric piece of kit, 8 channels of audio, 8x analog CEM 3389 Filters - quicksilver sound. 50khz sampling rate, de-emphasis and it has 4x 'smash' gain compressor on input too.

Each voice has separate pitch, LFO, filter, env control and the separate pitch, very tape like (8x separate DACs/clocking), in particular opens up lots of possibilities

Used by JMJ and others - he refers to it as 'Dynacord Addi' on listings to CD. Some of the drums on Zoolook are dynacord the ones that ripple and change in pitch"
