Roland EG-101 Keyboard Synthesizer Sampler

via this auction
"It has a wealth of Roland-like sounds including everything from sub-bassess to 808 and 909 drum kit TB 303, SH 101 Like other Groove products the EG-101 has a DJ/Remix or RPS (real-time Phrase Sequencer) for quickly generating ready-made grooves and beats - good for live DJ use or as a starting point for writing your own tracks! Unfortunately you can't program your own phrases. But you can alter the sounds, tempo and so on to give them your own unique twists. Only the most important functions are immediately accessible and real-time controllable. These include the filter cutoff, resonance, ring modulator and reverb. A great new feature is an external sound input that can be routed through the filter and/or ring modulator. Borrowed from the MC-505 is the D-Beam for more control (or lack thereof)! As with other Groove products the EG-101 has a good sequencer / recorder implemented for creating your own arrangements. Only one song can be recorded at a time but it can be created in real-time by switching patterns and muting any of the eight tracks allowing you to build and decompose your grooves on the fly! And the built in speakers are actually quite nice allowing this synth a bit of portability A total memory of 16 samples can be created from any external sound source.
