Elka OMB 5 (1985) - Arranger, Synthesizer & Drum Machine

via this auction

"The OMB 5 from Elka aka “One Man Band” is an FM and PCM Rom based synthesizer arranger instrument. There are two FM synthesizers on board along with a PCM / Wavetable synthesizer for drums. With this synth you practically have (in addition to synths) a one Drumstar 80 (Elka) and a drum with similar samples Linn! This is a great machine for a trip in the 80s and for Italo Disco, New Wave, Synthwave productions.

CONDITIONS: The unit is fully working and in very excellent cosmetical conditions! There are some minor traces of use and the internal fan, as in all OMB 5 of the world, is a bit noisy. Other than that it is a truly perfect gem!"

  1. I recently scored one for $120 that wasn't working. I cleaned all the IC's and sockets and voila...a working OMB5. Sold it to a very happy customer for $350.
