Posted by peahix on 9th June 2009

This is a quickie video I shot to demo the modulated LED thingy that Robert built so I can monitor sounds directly from my computer thru a real Optigan’s signal path.

Robert’s Disc Progress Report

Posted by peahix on 13th February 2009

We’ve had great success with the Radioaktivox release, and since we have been getting requests for more Optigan and Orchestron offerings, we thought we’d take time to explain what it is we do in regards to disc production. One of the most important things we bring to the table is a reliable method of converting [...]

This is definitely something we want to do, but the demand is very small given the miniscule owner community of this rare instrument. Orchestron discs share the same basic specs as Optigan discs, and discs from both machines can play [...]

Double-manual Orchestron on eBay

Posted by peahix on 30th December 2008

Just thought I’d post a link to this eBay auction for a double-manual Orchestron. These are definitely very rare- I’ve only ever seen one other for sale.
