The PANOPTIGON’s modern transport and audio electronics provide improved playback of several 1970-era optical disc formats, but that is only the beginning! Using a MIDI controller and direct physical touch, dramatic speed changes, modulation, transposition, reversing, and scratching, combined with modern effects, expand the possibilities of loop-based sampling, while CompuDrive provides accurate pitch control when required.
Each optical disc contains up to 60 sound tracks. The original Optigan and Orchestron program discs came in many popular styles, some with rhythm tracks and special effects, and our proprietary mastering system allows us to release unissued discs from master tapes preserved by Optigan guru Pea Hicks. In addition, we have created many new discs, which go further in exploring and exploiting the cyclical nature of the playback loop, resulting in loop libraries with endlessly entertaining combinations.
For a limited time, each purchase of a Panoptigon includes the following starter disc pack:
1) Oscillations (new Panoptigon format disc, only playable on Panoptigon)
2) Singing Rhythm (Remastered Optigan disc)
3) Vocal Choir (Orchestron disc)
