Inspired by the Alex Ball Video mentioned over at analogue heaven I 
wanted to update my page about roland filters with the information on 
the System 500.
I checked th thomann.de <http://thomann.de> pages for the pictures of 
the module and got a little worried

This is the pcb of the 510 (should be one four stage OTA filter and a VCA)

This is the pcb of the 521 (should be two four state OTA filters)

This is the pcb of the 505 (it should be a tranistor ladder filter)

The pcb of the 505 is full of LM37000, while there is no OTA in the 
original Circuit.
The pcbs of the 510 and 521 show not a single OTA, but many parts which 
seem to be double transistors - which I would expect for the 505.

After a first comparison of the 510 and 505 I thought Thomann mismatched 
the pictures, but the 521-pcb looks too similar to the 501-pcb

Can you identify what are 6 pin parts on the pcbs for the 521/510?
