Not bought, but I got this semi wreck of Escom 1200.

Looks really ugly and shielding inside is rusty, as it has been stored in some wet cellar That guy told me the Amiga is unreliable, but partially working - it boots cca one of ten attempts. I think it could be some cold junction or short circuit somewhere and it could be brought back to life. Inside is that bad Panasonic FDD that doesn't read NDOS floppies. Mobo rev. 2B, ROM 3.1.

I've never seen those keys with the extra characters before.
How do you make use of them?
1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 0, -, Y, [, ], ;, ' and Z.

Maybe they just show where those keys are, when you switch to a certain layout.
Reverses Y and Z point to that.

Seems additions at least for a German layout - DIY or what?

Korg MS-20 Mini
Finally, finally, after fifteen weeks of waiting, it shipped Wednesday and got here this morning. Totally worth the wait It's well-built, not "Mini" enough to be a problem, and sounds incredible. What a funky little machine! It just naturally lends itself to squelchy, weird, funky basses and leads. It's great for crazy effects stuff, too, thanks to the patch panel. (I do wish it had an option for multi-trigger on the envelopes, though - ah well.) All this and MIDI - quite a deal, certainly better than shelling out the going rate for the original MS-20 on eBay.

I am so stoked

It's a blast The more I mess around with hands-on, hardware synths, the harder I find it to go back to softsynths, and this is now the most hands-on thing I own...
