Akai AX60 Analog Synthesizer

via this auction

Note: I was wondering what looked off and realized it's the top row of buttons. They appear faded, almost white in these pics. Usually they are blue. White buttons would have given the AX60 a completely different feel.

"Vintage AX60 analog synth with custom walnut wood end caps in excellent, perfect functional condition. All keys, switches, knobs, and controls work perfectly, and the synth has just completely serviced and calibrated. The ax60 is one of my absolute favorite synths of all time. It is just mean and big and powerful and NASTY! It is so versatile, unique and relatively inexpensive, A great alternative to the now hilariously priced jupiters, prophets, and even Juno 60s.

Wicked filters, awesome memory and midi implementation, super-stable DCO's, this beast has it all. HUGE pads, SEARING leads, and earth shaking basses. WOW. Cross modulation, bizzaro FX ability and on board sampler! SINGLE BEST FEATURE: 1 button unison mode to stack all of those oscillators into one soul crushing lead or bass, AMAZING! The synth sounds (of course) INCREDIBLE! All of those squishy, squelchy, gnarly analog leads and fat, beefy, rumbling basses are on tap, as well as every knob-twiddled beep, boop, and spaced out tweeky tone and spooky, etherial pad, This thing is definitely THE Juno/ Jupiter killer to own.

Cosmetically, the board is in very nice shape, as the pictures attest, with only the lightest exterior play and handling wear one would expect of a well loved, well cared for and well played instrument of this age and pedigree. You won’t find it’s better."
