PPG 2.3 w. OS 8.3, VFD Display, Docs, SSMs, More

via this auction

"PPG 2.3 - anyone looking hat has never heard it, check the YouTube video, check out others, and then come back.

I installed the wonderful Virtual Music OS upgrade (currently installed version is 8.3, serial #29) and will contact Alexander and transfer ownership after the sale. Lots of great updates with the OS - fixed a broken wavetable, fast MIDI response, MIDI CC control over wavetable sweeps, and more.

I also installed a VFD display. What does that mean? It means a clear, bright, sharp display. It means no burnt out backlight and dim display. It means no annoying inverter whine to power the backlight.

I installed new keyboard bushings and leveled the keys.

Included is also the 2.3 manual written by Dominic Milano, the older PPG manual, a handy shortcut sheet, the OS 8.3 documentation, service manuals for the 2.2 and 2.3, and a half dozen SSM 2044 ICs. I also found the documentation for the Noritake VFD display, so that's in there as well..."
