Hi Guys,

I've recently been commissioned by Dave Formula of Magazine/Visage to build a controller for his Proddy ASB (Magazine have reformed for a couple of gigs here in the UK, and unfortunately Dave couldn't risk taking his Mk1 Oddy on the road). Lucky for me that a mutual friend of ours spotted one of my modulars, and suggested to him that I may be able to do the job...

The keyboard and midi PCB's were taken from a CME M-Key (nice semi-weighted keyboard, but comes with a terribly flimsy and almost, but not quite entirely, useless joystick!) The joystick was replaced with 3 Wheels - two of which, plus two foot pedals, are programmable. Although I have just found a bug which prevents normal control of one of the foot pedals - GRRRRR!!!!

Any problems... Well, quite a few along the way, the hinging mechanism was a bit of a pain, but ended up using a couple of "Side hanging Window friction hinges". Tolexing was fun - though being stuck in a room for 3 days sniffing glue is not advisable : )


Andy.

ps. what kind of modular you have in the background? Seems to be an ARP... :)

Ah, yes, the fake ARP thingy!

That's a project that I started work on last year... never quite got round to finishing off the cosmetics :)

A bit more about it here:
