No flash plug
Alan Needham built this in 1977/8 from a kit from Maplin (a UK project electronics supplier still in business) after seeing it demoed at a music store.
There were several Maplin Modular models, the 4600 boasted 4 oscillators, 3 Envelopes/Transients, a nice spring reverb and 2 multi-mode non resonant filters, plus a lot more besides and was patched using a pinboard matrix similar to the EMS type.
Many thanks to Alan for showing it.

I have one of these with a silver panel. Needs a bit of attention though! Nice machines.

I have one - black with more classic black/chrome knobs on it. The case is flightcase styled. I even have the manual for it, too, complete with pics of a swanky 70s rock band going at it, hehe. I may still sell mine, since it's so enormous! a [at] thecovertoperators [dot] org

Great to see another ETI 4600 synth. If Alan Needham sees this, can he get in contact as I would like to include details and pictures of his synth on my new website dedicated to the ETI 4600 synth (www.eti4600synthesiser.org.uk). Contact details are on the website. You can also see pictures of my 4600 which is in fantastic condition!

Shame there is so much talking and not much playing, it would be nice to see what it can do and how it sounds..
