"Bueller? Bueller?
Everyone has probably heard or seen this sampler at some point in their life (whether they knew or not) Probably most famously used by Depeche Mode, but its was the prime choice for many bands in the 80's. It had great sounding sample libraries to cover most of your bases. Or you could sample your own sounds in. It recorded at a whopping 8-bits with a total of 17.5 seconds. That might not sound like a lot by today's standards but it had a special quality that gave it a distinct character. The real magic came from the analog VCFs and VCAs that finish out the signal chain. On top of all that, it was also 8 part multi-timbral (also 8 voice polyphonic) with a built in sequencer. This could essentially run your most of your show back in the day!

This particular unit is in really great shape and had the original top 5 inch floppy drive replaced with a much faster and larger digital drive. OS 3.0 is installed, and it comes with original box.

Repair notes from our tech: Replaced filter and all power supply capacitors and tantalum capacitors used through out all remaining circuitry with Electrolytic type of same value. Cleaned entire panel board assembly including tact switches. Cleaned keybed assembly including all key contacts and cleaned dust and debris from inside chassis. Hard wired failing main power supply wiring harness to power supply PCB. Replaced 4016 logic IC. Installed floppy emulator and disabled remaining floppy"
