Quasimidi Quasar

via this auction

"Classic Synth Module from the early 90s (circa 93-94) Aimed at the dance music scene around then, it features many classic sampled and synthesised sounds with everything from Moogs, Oberheims, 303s, to more unusual and estoeric sounds and samples.

The synthesis engine is called M.A.S.S. meaning it combines rom pcm wave forms with FM and additive synthesis, the idea being you combine these raw 'sub patches' into a bigger 4-voice driven sound.

There is also a multi mode where you can use these basic patches as well as full General Midi compatability.

There's each sound has an applible resonant filter. There's also a reasonable amount of onboard effects and given the era the machine came from they're relatively low noise. The rom/voice set can be expanded by fitting either the T.R.E. (Quasimidi Technox sound set) or Hardcore rom carts.

The machine is a classic of it's time and if you're after that more digital slightly lo-fi sound of the early 90s the is the machine for you."
