I owned an Elka Synthex for a long time (click here) but never had that manual probably because it was only available "abroad". When I bought it NEW (in 1983 I guess) the only manual I received was photocopies of a handwritten Italian version of this one. The instrument was designed and built in Italy (see here) so the one I had probably was "the original" manual.

The Elka Synthex story starts with a rather less known Italian organ brand Elka-Orla. Its ambition to conquer the synthesizer market failed in a certain sense. Besides their slightly successful organ and accordion production they were the makers of the Elka Rhapsody 610 - a sort of budget string synth (but used by e.g. Jean-Michel Jarre and Supertramp) – and the Elka Solist 505 - pretending to be a synth but actually less more than an elevated organ

I had had that too (it was sitting on top of my Rhodes electric piano)
