The Grapher represented a distinctive mark of original Acxel. It was conceived for easily making it possible to the musician to program and parameterize the sound elements in an intuitive and interactive way.
In the context where the Mice were still of recent use and where the access to sophisticated machines was at the very least difficult, the Grapher was a Design success.
But between the middle and the end of the 80's , the assembly of such arrangements in matrix display of 2048 points was a good challenge of design to lead to an efficient manufacture.
The Grapher consists of 3 principal elements enchased in anodic black aluminum Extrusion:
- Panel on top - Contacts
- Panel on lower part - Matrix of LEDs, Read-out circuits and Display, Interfaces.
- Power Supply unit
