Input Modded Akai VX90 Analogue Synth with Midi SN 10955-13621

via this auction

"Akai VX90 Analogue Synth with Midi. This is the Sound Module version of the Akai AX73. A 6 Voice VCO/VCF synth that is also similar in sound to the AX60 but with Velocity Sensitivity.

This synth is fully working and sounds great. The overall condition is fairly good except for some minor scratches you would associate with its age. The display is a little dim like many older akai's but easily readable. There is some tape residue on the top of the synth as in the photo but with a bit of time and scrubbing could be removed if important to you.

An unusual feature of this synth is an input that allows you to connect to certain earlier Akai samplers such as the S900 and the S950 and use them as a 2nd oscilator, via an Akai DIN connector, for more unusual sound synthesis. However this module has been Modded to include an input jack that allows you to use any sampler ( which with the current prices of the S900/S950s is a good thing) or audio midi sound source as well. I have opened it up and the mod has been been done to a good standard and does not affect the other operations of the unit."
