"Works good. Some damage to bottom edges. Joystick is bent. Number 1 button sometimes re-triggers. See pictures.

This was Korg's answer to the Roland Juno-60 and it looks like a Juno-106 but the Poly-61 is more interesting in many ways.

- Six-voice polyphonic analog synth with digital controls
- Two digitally-controlled oscillators using square/pulse or saw waveforms
- Arpeggiator with latch, one-, two- or full octave range and up, up/down or down modes
- Polyphonic and Chord Memory/mono (unison) modes
- Hold button (any key pressed stays on until polyphony reached or turned off)
- Pitch bend joystick with DCO (pitch) modulation (up) or VCF (filter) modulation (down)"
