Evergreen Emu


Just the other day I downloaded the wonderful Emu Modular catalog from 1978 which made very good train reading on the way to the studio. I found it over on matrixsynth. Well would you believe it but today on matrixsynth I saw that Evergreen State College is selling their system, via a local auction house. Oh it looks like it sold already, bummer! Here is a picture I photoshopped from the auction pics (hi-res version here) and below that is the catalog
