"Very wonderful and remarkably rare Macbeth Elements EL2. Sounds epic and expressive. Use of the touch sensitive keyboard is fantastic, and I'm also including a Doepfer Dark Link, which lets you send midi or even USB from your computer or other midi device, and translates it to CV for the Macbeth. I have used Pro Tools to sequence the EL2 very successfully!

It is in near mint condition. Almost no imperfections whatsoever. I'm listing it as excellent just to be on the safe side.

the Black Elements features a classical, subtractive signal flow. A closer look then reveals some cool oddities like unconventional filter slopes, extensively equipped modulators, a band echo simulation and a spring reverb. The Elements EL-2 features a completely discrete circuit design. Its sound is creamy and fat at the same time. Thanks to NOS components, the instrument has a nice vintage vibe. Compared to its predecessor, the EL-2 offers some very useful additions. – Especially its three oscillators have been extended considerably.

The outstanding synth has 3 VCOs, a tape echo simulator, a filter/resonator combination, a spring reverb, and really large modulation potentiometers. Also the sound is huge but what really stands out (optically) is the golden touch keyboard with quick response.

The Elements has a CV and gate input socket pair, several CV inputs, e.g. for separate VCO control, filter cutoff and for the VCA. A spring reverb line in/out socket is installed as well."
