Does anyone know the current market value of a Alpha Centauri Synthesizer keyboard (and cards) for the Apple II?

Sorry to say, probably just about nothing, mainly because a developer recently made a software clone here - http://www.audiodamage.com/instruments/product.php?pid=AD027

It sounds fantastic, has more preset management, and is pretty cheap. You should just keep it and have fun playing it!

There was one went on ebay over here about a year back for quite a lot more than I was prepared to pay! (not sure exactly how much, but a good few hundred)

Have you searched for recent completed auctions? Coulda sworn I saw one somewhere close posted for sale not that long ago. Not sure if it sold though. There are vintage synth enthusiasts out there as well, so in the right place it might have a desirable market.

Here's the auction for the Alpha Syntauri keyboard in TX (http://www.ebay.com/itm/Alpha-Syntauri-Keyboard-original-classic-Alphasyntauri-RARE-Apple-IIe-II-2e-2-/271031088389) that someone else is trying to sell. Unfortunately they've only listed it for BIN at $350.00 but perhaps you can learn from their success or attempts.

I'm fairly sure that the card(s) in the apple is/are the "Important bit" without it the keyboard is just a keyboard. hence the "no takers"
