Jen elettronica Apple II Keyboard

I found a (most likely) soundchaser-clone.

It was made by Jen elettronica in 1982/83 and uses the Mountain Computer Music System. Currently only the interface is in my posession but i have aquired the Keyboards itself (in transit) and maybe even the software (part of a 100 disk package from the same seller).

This is all very interesting as i did not know that there were clones of the soundchaser.

Interface:

This interface has the same layout and most likely the same piout as the SC-interface.

As soon as i have the Keyboard ans Software, i will post updates here.

I intend to supply pictures and diskimages to the A2DP as soon as i have everything here.

About "Jen Elettronica":

Jen preoduced the Lemon II beginning in the early 80s. It was a 1:1 Apple mainboard clone with a custom case.

Jen has also produced a shortlived series of synthesizers

In the late 80s and early 90s, Jen produced low-end PC-compatible computers.

The company was very italy centric and did not try to compete in the USA (as far as i could find out).

The computers have been sold in Europe in limited numbers as i have seen a Lemon II myself (in Germany).

I don't know much more about Jen Elettronica.

Visiting the link in post #2 is recommended !

That "Lemon II" enclosure  is a wonderful example of timeless Italian Industrial Design.

 

Wish I had one just for that enclosure.
