All three test discs were distributed to Optigan service technicians. This makes them among the most rare of Optigan discs.

T123 Test Disc

This test disc features a sine wave tone on all 57 channels. It’s mostly useful for diagnosing volume discrepancies.

T125 Test Disc

This test disc features a sine wave on all even numbered channels. It’s mostly useful for diagnosing crosstalk problems, because when you open a channel that’s supposed to be silent, you can hear exactly how much signal is bleeding through from the adjacent channels.

  • Known Revisions: We’re not sure if this counts, but some copies of the T125 disc are marked with a hand-scrawled “X1” just after the typeset “T125.” There is no noticeable difference in the sound of the disc, so it’s not clear what the “X1” indicates.

T110 Test Disc

This test disc (Brian Kehew’s personal favorite of ALL the Optigan discs!) actually features NO signal at all on any channels. It is used for diagnosing key-popping-type sounds, though we don’t see any reason why you can’t diagnose this problem by simply leaving the disc drive empty!
