Chimera Instruments Ltd bC16 mk5 modular synthesizer on eBay

Another even more rare bC16 on eBay now. I quite liked the description on eBay:

I ordered a Chimera bC16 synth sometime around the start of Obama’s first term. It arrived in January. In the intervening time, I have acquired more than enough gear and frankly want this albatross out of my house.

Patchable with mini banana cables.

Used by Throbbing Gristle & a bunch of fancy brits with the clout to get their synths delivered on time.

Absolutely mint condition. Includes MIDI Din adapter, power supply, inverter, 1/4″ jack to 2mm banana cable, 10 mini banana (2mm) patch cables

You can build arpeggios from scratch or use one of the factory arpeggios as foundation. You can also create an unlimited number of user arpeggio presets.
