Yep, that's the one. The main cool thing about it is that it uses the same filters as the Yamaha GX-1 (large, potted modules.) Cute little guy, but not quite as fun (for some reason) as the ARP Pro Soloist or the Roland SH-1000, its main competitors. Way better action than the SH-1000, though.

I have one that needs a certain amount of tech love that I'd be willing to let go if, if you were looking for one. Just sayin'.
