E.M.I Ritm-2, analog soviet pizzazz

video by Valmont

"Facts I translated from an obscure russian forum:
- Development started in 1983
- Were made by hand from 1985 to 1992 in the Soviet Union
- 6767 units were built, estimated about 200 to 500 still working tho.
- The factory employed 15 workers: not enough people for a quality build. PCBs were cut and drilled by piles together by hand, the keyboard in an unspeakable handiwork thing...
- SN number starts at 2248 and ends at 9015, so mine is number 91!
- Black models are from the 80's, yellow/white plate ones are usually from the 90s
- Moog-type Ladder Filter (Micromoog or Prodigy?), Moog-inspired envelopes as well

Was just serviced"
