Vintage 1970s ARP Axxe Analog Synth Synthesizer Keyboard. This one is in average used shape cosmetically - study all pics closely for details. The sticker should be easily removable. Functionally it's in good working order, having been serviced by a qualified tech a few years ago. Since then the main issue is that the calibration has drifted, so that will have to be scaled in order to play in standard 12-tone equal temperament. This should be a relatively straightforward process for a qualified tech. The keys all play smoothly and trigger cleanly/correctly. The PPC pads are also in working order. I'm not aware of any mods done to this unit. I'm not the original owner, so I don't know the full history of it.

The demo video features a demo track ("Odd Rhythms" by Ralph Dyck, sequenced by a Roland MC8 Microcomposer) I made with this synth awhile back when it was still mostly scaled well. All sounds are from the Axxe, multitracked. After that is a bunch of noodling, some of which I recorded when I created this listing in Sept 2022. It's not very "musical" but will give you a sense of the range of sounds this synth can make. This synth takes a standard power cord (not included) that you almost certainly have lots of lying around your studio.
