Re: Shipping Boxes for Keyboards

A few years ago when I needed to ship my Keyboards across the country I went to a store that sold Roland Digital Pianos. They were happy to let me have the DP boxes which would have been tossed out for recycling anyway.

Re: Unusual Electronic Sound in Vintage Recording..

It sounds to me like an Organ with a Leslie speaker and lots of Reverb. In the intro you can hear several low notes being smeared and gradually ascend in pitch. The Organ sound continues being played in a legato fashion overlapping notes in a higher register throughout the song. Since more than one ...

Re: MS-20 legato

If you want more versatility try a Pro-One. It has selectable Single or Multiple Triggering and a Fingered Portamento mode which glides only when you play legato.

Re: Roland Jupiter 8 and 8a

The techs at Sequential Circuits were always amazed at how many Prophet 5's still had the factory patches when sent in for service.

Re: New Elka Synthex?

According to Paul Wiffen one last Synthex was cobbled together for Stevie Wonder using parts from three presumably non-working Synthexes. Why would they have to do this if so many parts still existed?

Re: RMI Rocky Mount Calliope 37 Key

If you have heard the studio version of "I Feel Like I'm Fixin' to Die Rag" by Country Joe and the Fish you may have noticed the Calliope sound. According to an interview with keyboardist David Cohen this was played on an electric Calliope that happened to be in the studio where they recorded the so...

Re: Why a juno 60 ???

There is female-fronted band that I once saw on Letterman whose name I can't remember now and the girl singer always plays a Pro-One in their shows. Metric? Yes, that's the band. They are big fans of the Pro-One and Dave Smith. Metric member Jimmy Shaw talks a bit about it here: https://www.youtube...

Re: Why a juno 60 ???

It's always nice to see someone using a vintage piece. Sure it would be cooler if it was a Prophet 5, Jupiter 8, OB8, etc. but a Juno 60 isn't bad. Anybody recognize the other keyboard she is playing? There is female-fronted band that I once saw on Letterman whose name I can't remember now and the g...

Re: Which Odyssey color?

Of course, you have to be careful when using credit cards. I bought a MacBook Pro in December and put it on the Barclay's card for the 12-month deferred interest payment plan. I bought my previous MacBook from Sweetwater and got an 18-month deferred interest deal. In the early 90's I took a $5000 cr...
