HACKME ROCKIT ?

Post by man-009 » Wed Mar 05, 2014 12:42 am

Never heard of this synth. $500 on ebay right now or best offer. Was wondering if it was a good buy? Please let me know. I did read they are no longer in production and was some sort of kick starter synth. Maybe over priced? but if no longer around, maybe not?

Looks like it's a homebrew hybrid synth: http://hackmeopen.com/rockit-build-info/

500 dollars is akin to highway robbery for it.

Seriously. I think I paid 100 dollars back in the day to get in on the kit.

If you want one, drop me a pm. I'd sell you mine (it's just the unit without the case). Not for 500.- dollars. Not even for 100.-

Fun little synth, but not 500 dollars fun.

I'll post links to the project when I'm near a computer.
