Re: Acetone EC-1 demo online

Title: Re: Acetone EC-1 demo online

ACE-TONE was the name of the company that became ROLAND

> Cool!  Any other name for it?  Manufacturer?  Never heard of it!

The manufacturer is Acetone which was a Japanese company in the early 60s
who made cha-cha drum machines, cheesy organs, guitar amplifiers, effects

A list of their products is here: http://www.answers.com/topic/ace-tone
Some more info here: http://www.keyboardmuseum.org/ar/a/ace/ace.html

The Roland/Acetone connection may explain how the EC-1 and RE101 ended up
so similar. As with most early oddball gear manufacturers there isn't a
lot of info floating around alas.
