Come See the New Prototype Optigan/Orchestron Disc Player @ NAMM

Posted by peahix on January 13th, 2018

Robert Becker will be showing his PANOPTIGON prototype at NAMM, in the Quilter Labs booth (15120, located in the new North Hall), Jan. 25-28.  He’ll have a selection of new and vintage Optigan/Orchestron discs for you to try out, and of course will be answering questions and listening to your feedback and feature requests. Pea will be poking in on Sun, Jan 28th as well. Come on down, say howdy, and try out the machine!

    Hi, is there any plan to make this available to buy or will it be a one off? If so, any idea when it’ll come to marker? Is there a preorder/kickstarter in place?

    Hi, we hope to be able to put it into production, but pricing/availability information is still a ways out. Keep checking back here for updates!

    is there a switch you flip for optigan and another for orchestron i thought the mapping was different? or do you need two different machines?

  4. Tony Says:

    do you have a midi keyboard with the left hand buttons and the right hand keyboard? how do you flip switches for drum effects etc.

  5. peahix Says:

    yes, there’s a switch that sets either optigan or orchestron mode. one unit plays both. we’d like to develop a custom keyboard to go with the unit, but that’s an expensive process and will have to wait for a later date. right now it’s just simple midi control.
