Great so the 10 people on the planet with an Orchestron are happy what about your optigan® people Pea, you turned your back on us?
Can we get the tremolo guitar and piano and other 3 discs for Optigan?

hi tony, the guitar and piano sounds were originally developed for the optigan®, it just takes longer to make optigan® discs, so they’ll be available sometime within the next month.
also, historically our orchestron discs have sold out much faster than our optigan® discs, so like any business we have to listen to what the market tells us. rest assured there are more optigan® discs on the horizon.

a while back, I surfed across your webpage trying to find out more about how those obscure musical instruments look like that I only know from CDs and was totally amazed by the story you told of how you got into discovering the optigan® and into becoming its inofficial new musical director.
When I returned today, I didn’t find that story again because the webpage has changed, but I totally feel that this story of yours would be a great read as a book. You really should consider writing a book about your journey into all things optigan®, especially on how you found out about and met all those people who worked for Optigan® in the first place.
Thanks for considering.
Btw. that very helpful discography of albums on which an optigan® can be heard is unfortunately gone from the website, too.
