short form:
Rare, insanely powerful nasty little dual DCO box with full parametric control from Logic or Live. Looking to trade for similarly special things.

long form:
There are less than 30 of these in the world. I have one of the three that exist in the USA. Yes the price listed on the Abildgard site is $795USD, but that is irrelevant — they have been out of production for ~15 years.

audio:
http://abildgard.com/droid3/demos.html

what makes it special:
- amazing lo-fi dco sound but not at all like SID; thick and mean.
- syncable oscs with fm, looping envelopes, arpeggiator
- dual multimode filter
- logic environment +
- max & max4live patch = fully automatable with software

It's too hard to put a price on it so I'd rather trade for similar esoterica. It's hard to put a specific category on that, so I'll just say, like this Droid, things that will continue to go up in value over time, not down.

Happy to provide more pics, sounds, whatever if you need.

Thanks!
