      Nice Find Darius. I’m not 100% sure but I don’t think MIDI was standard. One of the folks that follows our blog will know the answer – Anyone?

      Wersi did make a basic Midi kit for the W series at the end of its life (Although you won’t find many about) and there were also various companies that produced (And still produce) Midi kits for old organs.

      The mains socket on most W series with inbuilt amps was in the base at the rear, with switches in various positions. (I think the Helios was by the pedals, and the Saturn was underneath the top to the right, although it’s been that long since I saw one I may be wrong)

      Have fun

    I had came so close to purchasing this previously use at wonderful price, but as soon as I called about it, it was sold. This instrument was also used in the recording “The cat strikes again” with Jimmy Smith, who has made the Hammond B-3 famous for jazz/blue styles, as you can hear these tracts on You Tube. What I love about this instrument, that it comes standard with the Sound Computer, Wersi Vision (Auto-arpeggiator) and such a beautiful designed modern contemporary cabinet. From past of Wersi analog organs, the Wersi Saturn W3T organ.

      Pat – My Dad had a Saturn and that was our introduction to the Wersi product line. We are talking 1982-83 time frame. I started to build one but mid-build, Wersi announced the Delta DX-500. We quickly switched our build from the Saturn over to the Delta. As you already know we are currently a proud owner of a Sonic OAX-700.
