Quasimidi Quasar MASS / Rare Synth Module Made in Germany 1993. Rack Mount Synthesizer

the Quasimidi Quasar is in full working order, there are marks to the casing as can be seen on the photos,

The volume pot is a little bit scratchy when turning the volume knob.

The Quasar from Quasimidi is a rack-mounted digital synthesiser module which was released in 1993. A synth that was satisfying to the Techno crowds of the day and also General MIDI friendly.

The presets and drum sounds eschewed the typical General Midi specification, which was in vogue at the time, in favour of electronic and trance techno styles. The Quasar included an arpeggiator, which was an unusual feature in 1993.

Largely a sample based machine with limited editing capabilities but enough to play with among it's 1,000 samples available for tweaking.

The synthesizer also features a robust set of effects from Chorus, vibrator to delays, reverbs, and vocoder effects.
