Abstract: DIMI-6000 is an early microcomputer-based synthesizer designed in the mid-1970s by the Finnish inventor Erkki Kurenniemi. Designed as a hub for electronic music studios, DIMI-6000 featured a computer-controlled analog sound synthesis circuitry and a modular design. Despite its innovative design, only two units were built, one for Finland's national broadcasting company YLE and the other for Swedish composer Ralph Lundsten. This paper presents an overview of the instrument and its use, especially of the unit built for the Experimental Studio of YLE.
