Fairlight CMI IIX Vintage Additive Digital Synthesizer Sampler Working

via this auction

"This system is ready to make music. No excuses. No more work is needed to be done from a musician's standpoint. It functions reliably and is a joy to own and play. The light pen works great etc. If you buy the system you will get the FULL Fairlight experience with no work arounds. (Unless you consider a floppy emulator a workaround, it is a godsend to me.)

The keyboard is from a series 1, so it has the airy light synth action. It is still touch sensitive like the series II, but has the synthy action.

Both 8 inch drives have been removed and replaced with a custom dual floppy emulator.

The connections for the 8" drives are still there and work. The original floppy card has been modded so you can run the emulator and the old drive at the same time. If you have a couple of old YE data drives you can easily install them and will never have to remove the floppy emulator connection..."

Note the one of the images of the monitor matches the image in this previous post.
