This old Doepfer ad popped up at http://www.synthmuseum.de/ recently.
It's an ad for the Doepfer Sound Sampler that was released in 1984.This module was the precursor of the A-112 Sampler that was released more than a decade later...
Although the ad is in the German language, i found it interesting enough to share it here with you (with the English translation below)
