Hi

A little comment from history: the E510 chip has been developed by the 
company "Böhm", which was well known here in Germany for kits for home 
organs. Böhm was quite ahead in technology. But they feared, that they 
would sell the chip not well enough in the musical instruments industry 
because of the "smiled at"-image of their home organs. Böhm had asked 
Doepfer earlier already, whether he was interested in a MIDI-chip for 
keyboards. When it came to production they agreed, that the chip should 
be distributed under the Doepfer brand, because of the better "image" in 
the synth producers community. (to my knowledge in fact the E510 never 
was used by other brands than Böhm, Doepfer and Fatar).
