FVX-1 - FM Voice eXpander (rack)
This rare voice expander was produced for getting additional FM sounds with small editing abilities.
It has the same tone generation abilities as the HX poly tone generator (8 operators for poly sound).
In contrast to the regular electone-connected expanders it wasn't designed to fit on/below the electone.
But to sit along with other racked devices on the rack mount and be played via MIDI.
But, as we all know, the acoustic samples sounds gained popularity very very fast, and for the same
price as the FVX-1 you could buy much realistic sounded instrument - so only few people bought it
and today it can be bought for around 500$ (US).
