Drum Machine, String Synthesizer and Bass Pedals

Vintage MTI Auto Orchestra

World Class Circuit Bending, Experimental Instruments, Music & Video

The MTI Auto Orchestra is one of my all time favorite electronic instruments I've found. It combines a drum machine, synth strings, droning chords and bass pedals that sound very fat.

I was searching garage sale listings on craigslist in 2013 when

I saw a photo of the pedals sitting on a table at a yard sale. I drove immediately over to the sale and found them still there.

The owner told me $75 would take it home but all he had out

were the bass and volume pedals. He went inside and came back with main unit, in excellent condition.
