Re: Restoring yellowed plastic keys

Resurrecting an old thread, but it seems that some chemistry geeks have created a recipe for Retr0Bright that looks promising in restoring old, yellowed plastics. In case anyone is interested... 8-) I tried straight-up peroxide and Oxy-Clean separately, but never used UV light. Maybe if I have a cha...

Re: Emagic AMT8 or Opcode 64XTC?

An AMT8 for $25 is a great buy. They are solid MIDI interfaces and still very viable today as they work in 10.5 on Intel Macs, so you can use it with old and new software. Apple still delivers the driver for Unitor/AMT devices with Logic and GarageBand. Should work fine with Windows, too, though not...

Re: Keyboard Stands

I just bought the Standtastic 3 Tier. It will mostly reside in my studio and might be used live once or twice. Are the nuts and bolts really cheap, made of zinc or something? Might replace them with stainless steel if that's the case. Looking forward to having my SY99, SY77 or EX7 and Voyager all i...

Re: Keyboard Stands

Boy, it's hard to find a good keyboard stand these days. Looking at the 60" Standtastic three-tier. From the reviews, it seems like a winner. I don't think you'd be disappointed with it. I've had two of them since last winter and they are great. No bounce and they feel rock solid. I have all tiers ...

Re: Anyone regret getting Voyager Old School?

No regrets here. As soon as it was announced I knew it was for me, and I bought one instead of the regular Voyager simply because sometimes I don't want all the digital c**p getting in my way. I have enough synths that have that stuff, so the OS is a refreshing change. It's probably the same reason ...

Yeah boy! :lol: So bakeded, you've had a few days to play with the Orb. When you have some time, would you care to post some comments about it? I'm very curious about this thing. I've never played with any FR product so I have little idea about what to expect, but everything I've read and the other...

Re: I got an ESQm!

If you get tired of editing the m from the front panel, you can use SoundDiver if you can find a copy of that old software. I never could get it to work in MIDIQuest, though supposedly it does work.

And if you haven't already, have a look at the ESQseMe Yahoo! group. Some good resources there.

Re: Moog Voyager Old School question...

The keyboard scanner in the OS is in fact the only digital component, and it is last note not lowest note. As you've read, you can switch between legato (or single-trigger) which is the default, to multi-trigger. Basically, the difference is that in multi-trigger mode, when you have two keys held do...

Re: New Andromedas are here

I think they only do one production run per year. I think you might be right and the units begin shipping in late fall. Last winter (Dec/Jan timeframe) a friend of mine finally got his. He had it on backorder since July. Friday I ordered a new one from Analoguehaven and am exitedly awaiting it's ar...

Re: Keyboard Stands

I have four boards on three tiers -- my Fantom sits on top of my Vox on the lowest tier. And the tier arms extend to 24". They are long enough to accommodate the Vox, and I don't think even a CS-80 is as deep as that. The stand is 57" tall, and you can run tiers right to the top, so it will accommo...

Re: Studio Desks, yes seriously

That desk does look cool! From the angle it sort of looks like you could remove the drawers and turn them into racks. It might just be the angle though and the drawers might not be wide enough. The silver frame and those black drawers look pretty ace. Are they made of metal? The black racks match t...

Re: Studio Desks, yes seriously

I picked up this 60s office desk for $80 on CL. The thing is built like a tank, and has the perfect amount of space for all my stuff. Even with all that weight on top, it doesn't wobble at all. The surface is 72" x 30" and that's a fairly common size. Something similar might work for you, and if you...
