WERSI CX-2 (1984)

video by Synthesizer Home

"Ultra rare analog accompaniment unit with digital 8-bit drum machine mande in Germany."

via this auction

"Extremely rare Wersi Wersimatic CX2. The CX2 is a combination of a digital drumcomputer and preset synthesizer/organ. The drumcomputer section consists of 54 preset rhytms, but it is also possible to compose your own rhytms by using its composer (static/real time composing) and the 14 different drum sounds available. It also has accent.

The accompaniment section has a bass (guitar, synth, tuba), chord (e-piano, guitar, wah guitar, strings, organ), and arpeggio section (brass, clarinet, banjo, bells, strings, single notes). When the drumsection plays the accompaniment section can be triggered by pressing keys. It automatically follows the rhythms. However, you can also make your own BASS solo, chords, and arpeggio patterns !!

This is a great instrument for modding. SSM2044 chips are installed on two of the cards, and a filter/resonance function can be easily added. Other possible modifications my be separate outs and volume pots for drum sounds and accompaniment, clock synq, etc. I prefered to leave it in original condition and let the next owner do this if preferred.

The Wersi CX2 comes as seen on the pictures with technical documents in German.

Condition: Great condition with light traces of use (see the original pics and video)."

Cool overhead light on top for playing in the dark. I was wondering how many synths had something similar and the Moog Voyager came to mind. It has a gooseneck lamp you can connect on top.
