To enlarge upon (rather than abuse) this iconic machine, with an emphasis on musicality as opposed to novelty and to create a hybrid of new and old, with a superb production finish.
- Before modification all original components are cleaned and / or replaced
- All tactile switches are replaced using genuine Alps parts (not cheap Chinese imports)
- All original LEDs are changed to blue, to match new function LEDs
- All new parts chosen by track record for durability (eg new Cliff sockets, as per Analogue Systems Modular etc.)
- New function knobs use genuine/original Roland parts (harvested from other machines)
- Gate in, CV in, Filter CV in, Accent in, and Slide in, along the back edge for ease of MIDI control (with appropriate unit, eg. Kenton)
