YAMAHA VSS-30 sampling keyboard synthesizer in VERY GOOD CONDITION. This thing may look like a toy, but in fact is the much sought after secret weapon of lo-fi hip hop producers, circuit benders, creators of fat & dirty loops, and perhaps most famously, used by Sigur Ros to make their rich, organic ambient synth pads. Better than a Casio Sk-1, more sought after than the VSS-100 or VSS-200, it absolutely pours 8-bit magic sauce all over drum beats and synth sounds. But, then again, if you're looking at this then you probably know why this little beast is so special - if in doubt, check YouTube. CONDITION: Cosmetic condition of this VSS-30 is good for its age. It has some light scratches, and two white spots (maybe white-out or paint?) about the size of a pea on the bottom of the case. It has adhesive labels on the keys, which should be easy enough to remove. All buttons and keys TESTED and WORKING All tones TESTED and WORKING Sample record and playback TESTED and WORKING Envelope generator and effects TESTED and WORKING Battery and 9v adapter power TESTED and WORKING Note sequence record and playback TESTED and WORKING NO CORROSION in battery compartment The battery compartment cover is missing, but batteries stay in without it. For extra security, a small piece of masking tape works well. 100% original with no circuit bends or mods. However, this is a circuit bender's dream, and there are many well documented mods/bends online, as well as aftermarket mod kits. FEATURES: Powered by 4AA batteries or 9v-12v (tip +) generic power supply - not included, but most universal adapters or guitar pedal power supplies should work fine. I power this in my studio with my pedal board distributor. a 32 key mini keyboard with chord and "arpeggiator" functions. one RCA aux in for the sampler and one 1/8" line out (easily converted to 1/4" in and out) internal condenser mic and speaker on-board effects including looping, echo, FM and AM modulation by fixed LFO, and an ADSR envelope generator. SAMPLING: monophonic process is based on a YM2416 IC (common on all VSS series) + DRAM at 8 bits resolution with 2 fixed rates: 16 kHz (1,8 sec) or 9 kHz (3,5 sec). The sampled sound can be edited with 7 basic functions: - loop mode - reverse sample - uturn: alternates forward and backward play - overwrite: sound on sound, quickly saturates - voice editor - ADSR envelope - on-board effects (echo, LFO, etc) WAVETABLE SYNTHESIS: There are 11 preset sounds with no edit, but they can be arpeggiated or processed by effects, envelope generator, and various amplitude/modulation functions.
