Hi all, we’ve been experimenting with converting Talentmaker discs into Optigan discs, and have had promising initial results. Since the whereabouts or existence of the original Talentmaker master tapes is unknown, we’re working from recordings taken directly from the original TM discs themselves, which inevitably results in some generational loss in sound quality, but our tests so far have convinced us that the results are actually very good and useable. Since TM discs have three more sound tracks than Optigan discs, we’ve had to get a little creative with mapping the chord buttons, but I think we’ve come up with the best compromise.
Our current thought is to issue these discs in sets of four, at a price point of $199 per set. Please post a comment indicating whether or not you’d be interested in buying these disc sets at this price point, and if so, which TM titles you’d most like to have.

Thanks in advance for your input!!
