Guys, it's not a Hi-Fli , case is wrong , too many sliders and no knobs and the jacks sticking out the top would suggest it's a mixer. Interesting vid tho....

Agreed, unless it was modified, but there's something to the left of it that Florian switches etc which may be something.

at 1.40 when he switches the thing on the left you can hear a subsonic synth that adds to the flute tone from that moment on. i wonder what that connection between the flute and the rest of the equipment might be? as midi and breath controllers were not invented by that time it might be a microphone inside the flute fed directly into a synth.

It's nice to see some footage of the pre-74 Kraftwerk. This must have been the time when Ralf left the band to finish his university degree in architecture.

Florian's Flute machine is I believe a variation of the Gibson Maestro W2 Woodwind Synthesizer, and the mixer is an Echolette Panorama Mixer. Quite rare.

Ralf & Florian: best Kraftwerk record ever !

Neu: best trance-punks in dungarees !

Ralf Hutter should have closed his franchise decades ago, it's so pathetic now, after all the efforts he made in trying to keep a perfect image of mystery and concept, now kraftwerk could do music for the wheel of fortune or some TV shopping channel...

Conny Plank was right all the way...

he should have better retired long ago to make cheeses or wines in his castle full of bicycles...

Drummer was Klaus Dinger(RIP): he went on to great things with Neu! and La Dusseldorf.
