Yet another one of those "What keyboard is this?" questions

Recommended Posts

Let's see if I can stump the forum.

These guys have some some pretty funky old gear in their studio. Can any of you identify the three manual keyboard instrument that sits in the background? You get a clear view at the 8:00 mark.

Wow...no idea. I thought maybe some sort of mellotron type of thing or a harmonium, but no luck on the internet.

I sold home organs and never saw anything like that. Because the keys themselves are short and in such an odd configuration, my thought was maybe an electronic chimes or celeste console. On church organs you'll see a swing out mini keyboard for chimes. No luck on that so far on Goober but I'll keep looking. Fascinating!

The Keyboard in question can be seen in the second photo of the slideshow linked below. There are only a few buttons and no stop tabs which would suggest it has a fixed sound like a reed organ. The keyboards are only 25 notes with a very unusual key range.

What a useless looking contraption. I haven't seen anything like it and now I burn with curiosity as to what it is.

I think it's three MIDI controllers mounted in a custom cabinet. ;)

Not sure what it is, but man that sq10 makes me depressed that I sold mine! Loved that sequencer

I came across a photo of the backside of the Selene yesterday and didn't know what it was. It can be seen here with a bit of info about it.

Looks like some kind of early 80s squarewave based home organ with a limited tone palette. If it is the pedal could be for a filter. Maybe it could be some sort of harmonium as well, since I see a swell pedal. Maybe its a 3 keyboard custom job?
