I'd suggest you buy several of the small 220-110V transformers in the us.
They are intended for you us guys travelling to here. So its cheaper there.
Take care of the right amount of power. Rather get a big one.
Besides that  you can get a big one here for aprox. 80$, but you'll
need a mechanical connections. Our plugs look different.
So you are on the safe side with your transformer from the us.

REnting a maq ? Well koeln is a big music city, but doepfer isn'tsold
by shops only by mailorder. I guess it'll be hard.
You may rent mine, but I am 300 miles away.
