Well After thinking about how much I love this little beast,…and then balancing out the fact that I don’t need another distraction… I’ve decided to part with the PAIA 4700 modular

It powers up
Oscillators sound great
Sequencer is great
Envelope has been tested and is good
Modulation is good
Mults are all functioning
Audio path is good with the acception of some scratchy pots
The only thing that is questionable is the filter.
The filter seems like it’s functioning but it’s struggling.

( original missing potentiometer cap in photo has been replaced it was never officially missing I just forgot to put it back on for the photo. I only removed it to look at the potentiometer closely to clean it with a squirt of deoxit )

Comes with audio patch cables and PAIA cv cables
Also comes with two mult kits that were unopened ( see pics )
I already packed it up and double boxed it for a potential buyer in Spain.
So if that falls through it’s ready to ship for the next interested wiggler.

Although it sounds nasty kinda like an EML Electrocomp 101,… I’m listing it as fair because it needs some TLC, some cleaning and calibration and possibly some parts replaced.
This would be a great project for someone willing to break it down and tighten everything up nicely to spec.

I am only the second owner.
The original owner who built this 30 years ago worked for Ensoniq here in Pennsylvania and it was a pleasure hearing his sonic journey and how he came to acquire the PAIA etc.

Any interested folk out there want a crack at this little monster?
