GREENGATE DS:3

Hi,

 

after years of searching, i have finally found a nearly complete Greengate DS:3 Synthesizer (missing the keyboard) for the Apple II.

I will make images from the disks and scan the manual, as soon as the card arrives.

I can't read French, but if

I can't read French, but if this thing uses regular old-school 9600 baud serial MIDI, then you ought to be able to use about any MIDI controller for the keyboard, assuming you can make the right cables.

 

So is this card a sampler, a synthesizer, or both?

Looks like he was trying to scratch out Korea. (for whatever reason)

The midi feature is missing on this card. It was available as an addon card.

 

The card shown offers 4 sampler channels with 15khz/8bit. There is a 16pin header that allowed the direct interfacing of a musical keyboard. The main feature is the ability to sample directly from an analog source via the audio in with 30khz/8bit. Each sample could be several Kilobytes long (at least long enough to sample the word 'panties' :-) ). I havent been able to play with the card just yet since im missing the actual software. The previous owner had left it in the disk drive of the A2 but is sending it to me in the next days.
