Replacing shitloads of springs – ARP Odyssey

The keybed sensors needed new springs (and some cleaning).


Replacing over 100 springs takes time. I used leftover springs from a Wersi organ kit which I use for spare parts. Now the keybed feels lile it is brand new. No more double triggering, and you can now finally play two notes at the same time. I love this synth!

2016

Been quite busy moving to Oslo, working and gigging. I just haven’t had time to post any updates.
So here’s a solo I did for the norwegian hiphop group Side Brok in January. Enjoy!

New studio desk

After removing my tonsils, I’ve had to do as little as possile and relax as part of my recovery. Today I could not resist building a new desk for my studio. Procrastinate no more! I had a couple of IKEA night tables which I put some wheels on, bought an old coffee table and some screws. Here are some pictures of the process!

MS-20 Mini test drive

Here’s a video of me mucking around with my MS-20 Mini. I think the little bastard sounds absolutely terrific!
No patching involved here, but it’s run through my Moogerfooger in bypass mode, hence with the drive fattening up the sound a little.
Camera microphone from my iPhone 4S, so don’t expect earth shattering bass here…

Nord Lead 3

Holy poop! This synth is absolutely fantastic to program and play.
Here’s a dynamic saw wave lead sound I programmed in a couple of minutes.
Too much reverb from my trusty old Roland RSP-550. Sorry about the retarded filming in vertical position, using my left hand while pitch bending…
