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...

Re: Which

I like the white face since that was my first Synth. One thing though is that the original white Odyssey had a Pitch-bend knob rather than the Proportional Pitch buttons. Many if not most white Odyssey's also did not have CV/Gate and some were retro-fitted later.
