Custom Cased Waldorf Rocket & Streichfett System

via this auction

"Synthesizer System in Custom Case with 3 Synths, Mixer, and 2 Keyboards! One of a kind!

Compact little weird Musical Box full of many classic synth sounds!

Custom folding wood case measuring 30 x 16 x 11.5 inches. Open the four case style clasps (2 in front and 2 on folding back panel) and the unit lifts open revealing 3 mounted synthesis units, 2 keyboards, a mixer, and lighting. Use mixer to fine tune stereo outs from mixer to your amplification system. This allows very fast set up of a mobile synth system...just plug in stereo audio outs to amps or PA and you are making sounds!

The Three (3) Synth modules are:
(1) Waldorf Rocket Synthesizer (monophonic analogue), which is controlled by the top CME Xkey 37 Mobile USB keyboard controller, and which has a delay pedal (see bottom left of main pic) in line before the mixer.
(2) Waldorf Streichfett String Synthesizer and (3) Alesis Nanopiano units (both polyphonic), both in unison controlled by the lower CME Xkey 37 Mobile USB keyboard controller; one can mix sounds from both modules via their volume controls and the Mixer.

Mixer: Yamaha MG-06 stereo mixer; 5 channels are used by the synths leaving one channel open for a microphone or other instrument that the user might want.

The SOUND of this unit is big...there is a lot going on. One can create a huge layered pad with the bottom keyboard and play lead sounds via the top keyboard and use the small echo pedal at the bottom left to add echo effects to the lead sound. Each one of these modules is pretty deeply tweakable and has many choices of sound.

The CME Xkey keys are miniature, and they have no velocity sensitivity for those that are concerned with such things.

The panel that the modules are mounted upon opens via the top left and right knurled knobs, which when removed allows that panel to fold down on hinges, further allowing the cabling to be accessed. The keyboard midi and audio configuration can be altered as wanted by the user this way. As sold the bottom keyboard feeds both the String Synth and the Nanopiano via midi thru functions, but this could easily be rewired (again, top keyboard informs the Rocket unit).

There is an LED light strip over the top which can be programmed for different colors! (instructions included)

This system is 120 volts (US), and is powered by a power strip mounted inside the case that also powers some of the units via USB power outs. Turn the unit on by turning the power strip on (which is located below the synth module rack as pictured). On the left aspect of the case there are surface plugs for standard power and damper pedal, the latter configurable for either keyboard.

The case is sturdy enough but should be handled like any musical instrument when transported, and by no means is ATA approved. This unit would definitely need careful packing in a heavy duty shipping case if flown to a gig."
