Subject: Old GEM G20 keyboard - any info?

I recently acquired an old but working GEM G-20 keyboard for the princely sum of £5 and wondered if anyone here might know anything about them or have any info or a manual on one. I'm guessing it's about 20 years old and is only for me to mess about on.

It has some pits on it like a recording facility - where you press the record, play something and it then plays back something seemingly completely different which is an interesting idea. It also has a 1/2 button, a play button and another button (whose name escapes me at present as I'm not at home).

It has the usual thing of terrible drums/arpeggios/magic chords and stuff which it would be interesting to know what they do.

It also has two jackplug outputs and odd other things on the back which it would be interesting to know what their capabilities are.

Enjoying the church organ sound. Very very retro.

Keyboard has quite a nice feel to it though and all the keys work. For that sort of money what more could one want?!

Vain hope I know but one never knows what junk mudcatters keep :)

That's kind but I had already come across that and explored all the google links to GEM without getting what I wanted. So I thought I'd see if someone actually had one and that there might have been some instructions somewhere.
