ok, im writing a essay about stuff at the moment and im absolutely POSITIVE i once heard about a very old sampler which actually had a little reel of analogue tape assigned to each key of a keyboard which would obviously play when you pressed a key. ive tried searching for it with google, wikipedia etc, but every time i type "early sampler" or something similar i get 100 websites about embroidery (?!?!?) and then a couple on the fairlight (which is not what im after).
so am i amagining this analogue sampling antique or does anyone else know what im talking about? just the name of it would be enough so i have something to search for

thanks guys :badger:
