Akai VX600 Programmable Matrix Analog Synthesizer

via this auction

SN 306215-00021 ?

"Rare, very cool 6 voice 12 oscillator digitally controlled Akai analog synth from 1988. If you're looking for this you probably know what it is. The 'matrix' in the name means you can route modulation in weird ways, a bit like a modular synth. I bought this in 2017, after years of waiting for one to appear on eBay, from a boutique synth seller who fully serviced the VX before selling it to me. It's been used in a smoke-free home studio setup since then, and well taken care of. Backlight has been replaced, everything functions as it should. I'm including a Roland M-256E memory card that works with this unit. Power is Japanese but a US convertor will also be supplied."
