You can find a demo of one previously posted here.

"CAVAGNOLO EXAGONE XM64 is definitely one of the rarest combinations of an old French analogue! According to the Cavagnolo website, only 25 versions of the composite keyboards were produced and another 75 with accordion keys, Depech Mode owns one and uses it in the Delta Machine EPK) The Cavagnolo EXAGONE XM64 is a flammable monophonic analog synthesizer manufactured in France in 1982 Some features: 2 VCO with SUB OSC and many waveforms (includes very cool and powerful PWM which can be modified by LFO!), VCF, LFO 1, LFO 2, LFO DELAY (a kind of repeating LFO), EG, ADSR, NOISE, PORTAMENTO, the great OSC Sync... 64 memory locations to save and recall tuning patches! CV / GATE IN OUT, filter control and more ... for universal external control. What about the sound? The Cavagnolo Exagone XM64 sounds like a mix of a minimoog and the Roland System 100 for some warming sounds, but it can also make very original drones due to its clever LFO guidance facilities. The CAVAGNOLO EXAGONE XM64 is perfect for the musician who wants the music of Moog Roland and other sequential circuits, and the CAVAGNOLO EXAGONE XM64 is fully serviced: it is in perfect working order and in excellent cosmetic condition! It is a 220V model."
