2 Voice Pro

We are Brokering this instrument for and on behalf of our UK customer

Came into stock: Available from RL Music from 10th November 2017

Restoration/Servicing Status: KSR to service once sold, and prior to shipping to the new owner.

Remarks: Not a vintage synth but it’s a hand-built analogue synth that comes from a strong vintage heritage and masterfully reissued by the original designer – Tom Oberheim. The 2 Voice Pro is a beautiful and faithful recreation of Tom’s classic SEM based synth, but with a modern twist to deliver a cracking little analogue synth.

This Tom Oberheim 2 Voice Pro was purchased new by our client in July 2015 (imported in from the USA from the retailer Analog Haven) and has sat in his smoke-free home studio in the UK since with very little use, hence the decision to sell it to fund new projects.

The synth is in perfect operational condition and is in near mint cosmetic condition, as you would expect for something 2 years old, but it has been in use so it’s not brand new. We will have the synth fully checked over post-sale for prudence, but this is a fully working and immaculate instrument. It will be supplied with the original owners manual and retail box (as pictured), plus IEC power cable and some 3.5mm jacks that came with the synth.

These are a limited production run model and set to rise in value once all production has ceased, so this is a good opportunity to save a considerable sum against the cost of buying a brand new one today.

Sound On Sound magazine featured an in-depth review of the 2 Voice Pro, written by one of the most knowledgeable & experienced synth reviewers on the planet – Gordon Reid. Please click the link below to read the article:

Studio Electronics C...

We are Brokering this instrument for and on behalf of our UK customer

Came into stock: Available from RL Music from 6th November 2017

Restoration/Servicing Status: KSR to service once sold, and prior to shipping to the new owner.

Remarks: Not a vintage synth, but the Studio Electronics Code 8 has a mighty reputation and is a proper discrete-built analogue poly synth – a serious pro-audio instrument, and a modern classic without any doubt.

This CODE 8 was purchased new buy our client in 2013 from sxpro in London, and was fitted with the 8 x Arp 2600 Filters and the 8 x CS80 Filters upgrade options. It has never been racked, and has sat in his smoke free home studio in the UK since with very little use, hence the decision to sell it to fund new projects.

The synth is in perfect operational and the main control surface is in mint cosmetic condition, as you would expect for something 4 years old, although there are some marks on the large printed logo on the top of the instrument. We will have the synth fully checked over post-sale. It will be supplied with the original owners manual and retail box (as pictured).

As with all Brokered Sales, the synth will be fully serviced post-sale before it’s sent to its new owner. We do this to ensure that the instrument leaves us in perfect operational condition, and it is backed up by our full warranty to give the new owner complete peace of mind.

Prophet VS

We are Brokering this instrument for and on behalf of our UK customer.

Came into stock: Due here w/c18th January 2016

Restoration/Servicing Status: KSR to service once sold, and prior to shipping to the new owner.

Remarks: The Prophet VS – a classic & ground breaking synth by any definition, and this VS is available for sale.

Vector Synthesis was revolutionary when the VS was introduced in 1986 and opened up a whole new way of modeling sound in real-time. Using four oscillators per voice with 127 waveforms (of which 32 could be user), this 8 voice synth changed everything. It’s dynamic waveform crossfading via the joystick is a fantastic feature and mono-aftertouch and velocity brought Sequential into the modern age – just a shame this was their last synth.

These historic synths are rare to find in good condition but remain very popular with great EM musicians like Ulrich Schnauss etc. The use of the Curtis chipset for the filter IC successfully pulls the digital and analogue together to make the VS very musical.

The mono-aftertouch system is fully working, although typical to these models, is primitive and lacks the more sophisticated control of system like the T8 and CS80 etc. although It can be accessed via MIDI as an alternative.

Our restorers, KSR, are experts at preparing these models, and this superb example is in really outstanding cosmetic and operational condition. It has been fully serviced by another reputable UK tech fairly recently, although the VS will go though a full and extensive servicing again by KSR to ensure it’s ready for the new owner.

As with all Brokered Sales, the synth will be fully restored post-sale before it’s sent to its new owner. We do this to ensure that the instrument leaves us in perfect operational condition, and it is backed up by our full warranty to give the new owner complete peace of mind. The servicing is carried out as a priority once the the sale has been completed, and although it will delay shipping/delivery by a short time, we know from experience that customers are happy to wait.

This Prophet VS is sold with a 3 month warranty and runs on either 110V or 220V.

Guide Price Post-Restoration: £2690 GBP.

Availability: This Prophet VS is no longer available (as at 15th July 2016), as the owner has withdrawn it from sale – sorry.

Library pictures supplied below of the last Prophet VS we sold, but high-res pictures of the actual synth will be organised and posted here shortly.

Andromeda A6

We are Brokering this instrument for and on behalf of our UK customer

Coming into stock: In stock now!

Servicing Status: KSR to service once sold, and prior to shipping to the new owner.

Remarks: This ‘modern analogue’ synth has some serious curb appeal, and could never be accused of lacking facility or punch. Alesis were clearly inspired when they realised the A6, but with production ceasing some years ago now, the synth has already achieved a cult status so another great synth for the halls of fame it seems.

The current owner has owned the A6 from new, and has only ever used it at home (smoke & pet free etc.), so the cosmetic and operation condition of the A6 is pristine.

As with all Brokered Sales, the synth will be fully serviced post-sale before it’s sent to its new owner. We do this to ensure that the instrument leaves us in perfect operational condition, and it is backed up by our full warranty to give the new owner complete peace of mind. The servicing is carried out as a priority once the the sale has been completed, and although it will delay shipping/delivery by a short time, we know from experience that customers are happy to wait.

This Andromeda A6 is sold through RL Music with a 3 month warranty, and can operate on US 110V or EU 220V. The A6 is supplied with its original User manual and power cable. This A6 is running on OS 1.40.12.

Price: £2550 GBP.

Availability: This Andromeda A6 is now SOLD as at 27th July 2015.

Moog Voyager XL

We are Brokering this instrument for and on behalf of our customer

Came into stock:  2nd April 2014

Servicing Status: Full service by KSR will commence post-sale

When Moog Music produced the Voyager XL they set out to offer the finest contemporary analogue hybrid synth in the world. They achieved something quite beautiful and it’s hard not to want to own by just looking at it..wow!

The Voyager is a great sounding synth and distinctly ‘modern Moog’ in sonic character, and a worthy evolution of the original vintage Minimoog in many ways, offering truly fantastic value for the money.

This monster synth is brimming FULL of enough features and functionality to satisfy any synth fan, and thoughtfully adorned with excellent performance control options to make this a fantastic centre-stage studio CV/Gate/MIDI controller.

This Voyager XL was purchased second-hand last year by it’s current owner and has sat unused in his studio, so he decided to let it go to someone who will make good use of it – as it deserves. The Moog is in excellent condition throughout, as you would expect from an synth only 2 years old.

Running OS version 3.6. It does not come with its original box or user manual, although the manual can be downloaded direct from Moog here:

http://www.moogmusic.com/sites/default/files/voyager_xl_manual.pdf

This can operate over 110V and 220V – it will be sold with a 3 month warranty.

As with all Brokered Sales, the synth will be fully serviced post-sale before it’s sent to its new owner. We do this to ensure that the instrument leaves us in perfect operational condition, and it is backed up by our full warranty to give the new owner complete peace of mind.

Sales Price: £3390 GBP.

MacBeth M3X

MacBeth M3X

We are Brokering this instrument for and on behalf of our customer

Came into stock: 20th Sept 2013

Servicing Status: Full service by KSR will commence post-sale.

Remarks: A modern classic for sure, and built by a passionate and very skilled synth engineer in Ken MAcBeth, the M3X was the first of his acclaimed analogue synthesizers and a fine product it is too.

This 3 VCO desk-top/rack-mountable system packs real analogue punch through its 24dB/Oct Transistor Ladder, and as with all Ken’s instruments has been built to almost military spec quality, so expect to see these lasting like the vintage Moogs have. The M3X offers a lot in a small package and even had MIDI and CV/Gate control options which makes this a simple/pure analogue synth to slip into your DAW/analogue studio and make a big difference.

The actual M3X for sale was purchased new by the owner and they bought it directly from Ken MacBeth himself. We believe here were only around 100 ever made, so that make this rare by any standards.

This M3X Runs on EU 220V and can be supplied with its original box and owners manual.

As with all Brokered Sales, the synth will be fully serviced post-sale before it’s sent to its new owner. We do this to ensure that the instrument leaves us in perfect operational condition, and it is backed up by our full warranty to give the new owner complete peace of mind.

Studio Electronics A...

We are Brokering this instrument for and on behalf of our customer

Came into stock: Arrived at RL Music in mid-May 2013

Servicing Status: Full service by KSR will commence post-sale.

Remarks: A great value rack-mount vintage synth emulator, and this example comes with the Minimoog Filter Cartridge. This is an analogue synth by any standards but goes about the technology a different way using the external cartridges to supply the sound character.

A popular late 90s instrument and used a lot in Hip Hop for bass, and overall sound has a aggressive and dirty edge to it that sets it apart. The ATC-1 holds 512 memories and had MIDI plus CV/Gate control inputs and audio-in for some interesting processing effects etc.

Runs on EU 220V.

As with all Brokered Sales, the synth will be fully serviced post-sale before it’s sent to its new owner.

Remarks: A truly classic model and the best selling digital synth of all time, as far as we know!

We originally sold this D50 to the current owner but they have decided to make room for some new studio equipment, hence asking us to sell it for them. As you can see from the pictures, this D50 is in excellent condition throughout and is supplied with its original manuals.

Yamaha DX7

We are Brokering this Mk1 Yamaha DX7 for, and on behalf of, a long standing UK customer

Came into stock: In stock and available – 16th May 2013.

Restoration Status: Recently fully serviced in Q1 2013.

Remarks: The legendary Mk1 DX7 has seen quite a strong rise in popularity in recent years and drifted positively back into peoples conciseness.

The Mk1 is built like a tank, which is a throw back to the old analogue days when synths were made to a very high quality. This is a truly mass-produced instrument by any standards but even after 30 years still feel fresh to the touch, at least this example does. The sound of the DX7 is familiar but surprisingly dynamic and exciting, and knowing this single model changed at least a generation of popular music is actually wonderous.

As you can see from the customer supplied pictures, this DX7 is in super condition and is supplied with its original manual.

This particular example was very recently fully serviced by KSR so in 100% perfect operational condition. Runs US 110V & EU 220V Voltage.

Yamaha DX5

We are Brokering this Yamaha DX5 for, and on behalf of, a long standing UK customer

Came into stock: In stock and available – 16th May 2013.

Restoration Status: Recently fully serviced in Q1 2013.

Remarks: The DX5 packs some serious bi-timbric synthesis power, and even by todays standards is a serious pice of kit, and sounds massive!

Operationally speaking, the DX5 is very close to the mighty DX1 but without the real estate and some performance features, which means it’s affordable for most people. This was Yamaha’s intention when it was released in 1985 as a professional grade instrument.

These models are quite hard to find these days in anything approaching decent condition so when our customer purchased this example he was after something at the top end of the quality scale.

From the customer supplied pictures you can see that this DX5 is in amazing condition, and it’s supplied with two ROM Cartridges.

This particular example was very recently fully serviced by KSR so in 100% perfect operational condition. Runs US 110V & EU 220V Voltage.

Ensoniq VFX-SD

Came into stock:  April 2013

Servicing Status: Currently being serviced by KSR

ETR (estimated time from restoration): May 2013.

Remarks: The evolution of the Ensoniq Synthesizers from the ESQ-1 developed strongly into the VFX, which uses wavetable synthesis – like the PPG et al.

This model was a powerhouse of synth technology and even featured polyphonic aftertouch, inbuilt effects and 21 note polyphonic keyboard. Even by todays standards that’s impressive, although poly AT is exceptional!

Even if you don’t use the fantastic synth for its sounds (and why wouldn’t you?), you still have an excellent MIDI keyboard controller for your soft-synths, and it transmits Poly AT & velocity.

Operates on EU 220V and sold with a 3 month warranty.

Guide Price Servicing: £590 GBP

Availability: This Ensoniq VFX-SD is now SOLD as at 31st July 2013.

Restoration Status: Currently Being restored by KSR.

ETR (estimated time from restoration): December 2012
