This is the one in the recently posted videos here.

"Time to let go of my Two-Voice which I've had since 1997 when I got it from a tech in Atlanta.

The tolex was a bit rough when I got it but the inside is impeccable, and it works like a charm.

I have had it in for repairs 3 times during the 23 years that I have owned it so far.

Once around 2005 at Two Lines Music on Broadway, then at EARS Music Repairs in the Music District of NY in 2010 and a few weeks ago the sound OUT mixer module needed repair and I took it to AUDIOTRONIC in Bordeaux.

This beautiful beast is too large to occupy the space it deserves in our small home here in France so she has to go to someone who can provide her the space she needs to be played more frequently than with me when al I can do is take her out on occasion and run the sequemcer for samples.

I uploaded a few videos to show her in action for the purpose of this sale. The audio is far from sample quality but then, this was destined for Youtube to show the basic functioning of this machine.

There is one small niggle with this synth. The uppermost F# key sometimes gets stuck and has to be gently pulled back. Not a big deal for me, but needs to be mentioned. I mostly play the sequencer and oh, it also works with a TB-303 or an ARP Sequencer providing gate and CV."
