Elka Wilgamat - Analog Auto-Comp Machine 1976

Published on Mar 14, 2019 Italian Vintage Stuff!

"Great sounding analog drum machine and auto comp unit.
It features three chord voices and two bass voices plus a range of great 70s Roland sounding drum sounds with a fill-in option that I of course forgot to use on this video.
The auto accompaniment section is a two octave bass and chord synth that can be controlled by either an external two-octave keyboard, an Elka organ or foot pedal via a 31-pin cable.
The bass and chord patterns change depending on the rhythm, Salsa, Rock, Bossa Nova...
In total 16 different rhythm presets with fill option, two bass patterns (auto and walking bass), two bass sounds, with a bass sustain option.
The accompaniment consists of three sounds that of course sounds nothing like what they're named after: Piano, Guitar and Brass.
There are individual volumes for the three sections, plus an overall master volume.
This one was modded with separate outputs.
These standalone units are rare, they were incorporated into the Elka X 705 Space Organ, apparently used by Jean Michel Jarre to make the Oxygen record."

Elka Wilgamat - Jamming with Envelope Filter and Space Echo

Published on Mar 14, 2019 Italian Vintage Stuff!

"Ella Wilgamat is an analog Drum/bass/chord machine from the 70s, originally part of the massive "Space Organ" 705X, used by Jean Michel Jarre on Oxygen.
This is just a quick jam with the Digitech Synth Wah-guitar pedal and some spring reverb and echo via the Roland Re-301."

You can find a few models of the Elka Wilgamat in the archives.
