Quasimidi GIGA-Card

Note: This site contains affiliate links for which it may be compensated.

This one was spotted here and sent in via M Me.

Never seen one of these before. The following is the description in Dutch followed by Googlish:

"Voordat Quasimidi legendarische synthesizers uitbracht, maakten ze sound expansions voor een aantal duur segment keyboards van onder andere Roland.

Deze expansion is daar een toppunt van. 512 styles en begeleiding patches voor de E-serie keyboards van Roland. Roland heeft zelf een reeks kaartjes uitgebracht onder de types TN-SCx-xx waar maximaal 8 styles op zijn opgeslagen. Dit kastje heeft er dus 512. Deze 512 zijn opgeslagen in blokken van 8, waar via het menu telkens een andere 'kaart' kan worden ingeladen.

Ik heb zelf de E-70 gehad en er best lol van gehad. Vooral de Peter Gunn style waar dat bekende intro van Emerson, Lake and Palmer perfect wordt nagebootst en je heerlijk op kan varieren.

Dus als je nog een Roland Intelligent Synthesizer E-nogwat hebt die TN kaartjes slikt, ik raad 'm 100% aan!

De Giga-card is bij voorkeur op te halen in Zaandam, daar het een wat ouder stukje techniek is. Testen kan helaas niet want ik heb geen E keyboard meer. Verzenden is uiteraard mogelijk, maar zijn alle risico's voor de koper."

Googlish:

"Before Quasimidi released legendary synthesizers, they made sound expansions for a number of expensive segment keyboards from Roland, among others.

This expansion is the pinnacle of that. 512 styles and accompaniment patches for Roland's E-series keyboards. Roland has released a series of cards under the types TN-SCx-xx where a maximum of 8 styles are stored. This box therefore has 512. These 512 are stored in blocks of 8, where a different 'card' can be loaded each time via the menu.

I have had the E-70 myself and had quite a bit of fun. Especially the Peter Gunn style where that famous intro of Emerson, Lake and Palmer is perfectly simulated and you can vary wonderfully.

So if you have another Roland Intelligent Synthesizer E-something that swallows TN cards, I recommend it 100%!

The Giga-card can preferably be picked up in Zaandam, as it is a somewhat older piece of technology. Unfortunately, testing is not possible because I no longer have an E keyboard. Shipping is of course possible, but all risks are for the buyer."

HOHNER PK250 MIDI SYNTHESIZER (1985) w/ Curtis CEM 3391 Filter


Andro Umeda

"I have got today this ultra rare instrument in perfect working order. It should have analog voices plus sampled drum section. This is a first power-on test. Love the sounds."

Haven't seen one of these before. Some info via legoluft who's done some mods for it:


"I'll describe the modification of a professional arranger keyboard, model Hohner PK-250, in detail. This home keyboard from 1985 offers many possibilities like poly and solo sections, drum machine, portamento and chorus effects, Hohner chords, etc. It produces stunningly high-class sounds with a warm, analog character.

While studying this instrument more specifically, I discovered two Curtis CEM 3391 chips (24 dB low-pass filter with resonance up to selfoscillation) and several SSM 2024 chips (a VCA module which was also built into the legendary "Waldorf Wave"). I got hold of the chips' data sheets and found out that the very flexible CEM 3391 chips in this machine were hardly taken advantage of, and that many important functions were blocked by fixed, unchangeable control voltages.

I built a simple board with 7 adjustable control voltages, using standard CV model 7805. I used the +12 V direct from the device's power supply. Thus, 7 independent CVs were at hand I could now adjust with external potentiometers.

After replacing the device's fixed CVs for the preset sounds with my own, the machine had 7 important synthesizer functions. Despite of the preset sound settings, I can now manually adjust and drastically change the cutoff, resonance and ADSR envelope values.

The result is astonishing and, through the built-in MIDI interface, this device has become a full analog synthesizer with assertive sound."

These usually have reddish accents as seen in previous posts. This might actually be the first one with green outlines featured on the site.  Curious what the story is behind it.  Custom, or factory? Different rev?  If anyone knows, feel free to leave a comment.
