New 2017 Optigan Disc – DARKSOPHONE – Feat. Pall Jenkins

Posted by peahix on 14th February 2017

Since the saw and Marxophone both have limited ranges, we’ve split the keyboard, placing the saw on the lower half and [...]

Use Of Our Original Optigan/Orchestron Disc Titles

Posted by peahix on 11th April 2016

Since we’ve been authoring new disc titles for the Optigan, our feeling all along has been that these discs (at least the ones with significant musical content in the form of original arrangments and phrases) are sort of like “singles,” ie creative musical products in and of themselves, albeit with an interactive component. We’ve never [...]

POLL: Would You Buy This New Optigan Disc?

Posted by peahix on 8th August 2015

We’ve pressed up a prototype of a more experimental Optigan disc called GLITCHEDELICA. It’s basically 57 glitchy loops (ie, each chord button and keyboard key contains a unique loop), mostly rhythmic in nature, that you can combine and recombine in an endless glitchy sonic soup. We like the disc, but we want to get a [...]
