Looks like the granddaddy of the Keytar - now there's something that screams 1980's. After reading through the biography of the developer, it never occurred to me how much effort it could require to produce the rolls used to control the automatic player instruments.

I recognize that tune. It's "This is E.T. Please Come Back for Me."

"Produces a big organ sound?" Wink, wink, nudge, nudge.
