Other than the three PS-3300 Modulars (Only 60 or so were made...)
Matt Black's impressive collection of gear includes one of the only two
ever built-VCS-4s.  He has the mustard one with the black faceplate.
I met Matt and Jonathon when they came to Montreal and gave him a
VCS-3 Mk1 manual for his VCS-4, which is essentially a Mk1 with a
Cricklewood Keyboard attached.  This is likely the prototype which
later evolved into the Synthi AKS.  According to the A-Z of Analogue, 
the first VCS-4 was designed by Robin Wood's brother Kif.

The other VCS-4 consisted of two VCS-3 Mk1s with a keyboard and
was designed by David Cockerell for Peter Zinovieff.

Both units were born in 1971.

Matt Black is also a huge MS-20 fan, but Coldcut got theirs stolen a
couple years back.

How's my trainspotting?
