The EMS Universal Sequencer had indeed been available since the early 70's. When it was first unleashed on the world of music in 1970, it was by itself however in 1972 a variation of the EMS Universal Sequencer was made that was also available with a variation of the EMS VC3 and in a briefcase to boot! This classic package became the EMS Synthi AKS.
As well as the sequencer, a few other key instruments from Mike's classic 70's days are missing from the 1976 "Boxed" photo. These are the Hammond, Farfisa, Lowrey and Gemini Organs, the 1957 TV finish Gibson Les Paul Junior electric guitar and the natural finish Gibson L6-S Deluxe electric guitar from First Excursion. I think Mike just couldn't find room for all his instruments to fit in one photo.
