No idea, but if you zoom in, down the right side you have:

clap
symbol
?????
bass
snare
mix

So obviously some kind of drum synth.

I have one, but it's only mostly working. If you know where I can find schematics or even an owners manual, I'd be most grateful.

That's not an AKAI MPC.

No 808 either.

I managed to figure out what it is, but I searched amongst your older posts to find out so I'm not sure if that classifies under cheating :D That's a very interesting MPC drum machine indeed.

BTW, it's one of those machines I always would have loved to give a try myself.

Hmm... does it start with a V? I see some online photos that look similar, but most of them seem to have white panels, although I found one pic of one with a black panel.
Switches, knobs, buttons, LEDs, LCD screens, monitors, keys, mice, jacks, sockets. Now two joysticks!

do I win, or ruined the fun?
Lol, I already guessed it a while ago, I just chose not to say the exact answer. Unique looking machine! I would like to try one out someday.

It's fairly clear from reading the posts above that many of us knew what it was already.... 8-)

It´s a computer. There was also a "kit". But you didn´t have to build it.
