Damn! Thats an amazing A6 mod you have there...congrats.
Do you have more pictures?

How is it to use the ribbon in that tilted position?
Would think the original flat way was better or what?

I don't have a lot of good shots of the Aurora, the first pic was one Khris sent to me a while back before I purchased it.The one above is a more current shot in the studio above a
Yamaha VL-1 and a Kurzweil Midiboard. Using the ribbon in that position actually feels "right". The Kurz has an expressionmate ribbon on the ledge beneath the keys; good for palm slides. I don't find the ribbon position to matter that much.
Finally in answer to your ? I much prefer the tilted panel.

Howdy, gents -

Got a PM from a few of you asking if I knew how many Andys have been made/if I had any idea how to tell from the serial numbers. Sadly, I have no idea...but my educated guess would be well into the thousands. Heck. there are 250 of my "birthday" units (the ones with the red overlay) alone.

Get this: many people know we were fought tooth and nail by the upper management of Alesis as far as whether Andy should ever be built. The gentleman to whom I reported at the time was not in favor of it, and actually told me that if we sold 50 of them, we'd be lucky. :shock:

Now there's a cat who really knows his market. :lol:
