Acorn Music 500

 

A powerful music synthesiser; however! I no longer own this peripheral, but keep the page up for completeness =)

 

The Acorn Music 500 Synthesiser went on to be re-badged by Hybrid Technology Ltd. into the Hybrid 5000. As far as I understand it, these two synths were identical apart from one modification to the 5000 that allowed it to be fully compatible with the BBC Master computer. The software that accompanied the two systems had significant differences though; more on this to follow.

 

There is a wealth of information online about the various elements of the Hybrid System; I will report back with more on the Electron implementation of it when I can get it working with my system...

 

Electron User reviewed the M5000, you can read the review at the Acorn Electron Haven.
