  • 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.…

  • Connecting my new studio

    A quick update. Right now on a plane to a gig in Tromsø… Traps and absorbers from Vicoustic. Under construction!

  • 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!

  • ARP Solina II repair

    Needs some more love before she plays 100%. A few caps should do the trick.

  • Repairing an old Riviera organ

    In Italy they knew how to build reliable and portable organs. This one only needed a bit of cleaning. Now it plays like it’s brand New! Great success!

  • Repairing a Polysix

    Tonight I’m working on a Korg Polysix. The battery is leaking and some broken keys. Tlc and some spare parts will do it.

  • 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…

  • New member in the family

    Korg MS-20 mini, you’re great! Welcome to my studio. Here it’s connected through Electro Harmonix Micro Synthesizer and Moogerfooger Low Pass filter. Rumble and joy – oh boy, it’s fat!

  • Working in the studio

    It’s starting to look like a decent studio. There’s been a lot of work lately, which has had to be prioritized over my studio. Spring cleaning soon!
