I attach here more information about my Accessit Spring Reverb. I bought this new in 80's, together with Accessit mixer, Teac 3340 4-track tape recorder and DBX noise reduction. I checked this and changed all the capacitors on the control unit. It works nice as you can here on my ARP-recording. It's a mono-in stereo-out reverb with three springs on both the left and right channels (six springs together). Mystically I have the original Accessit brochure left from where are the two last pictures here.

Charles Cohen has a gig at Vooruit in city Gent of Belgium 19.3.2015. I think this is almost the last change to hear him live in Europe. Cohen is the man when we are speaking about Buchla Music Easel and live performance. I have the tickets already in my pocket! Here is a nice interview about him: www.residentadvisor.net/feature.aspx?2020

I started a new Prodigy-project where I try to make a Moog Prodigy clone. This started when I noticed that my Sprint Layout PCB program has a scanned-copy function where you can load an existing PCB-layout picture and use this bitmap as an original to trace the layout. This is a good project to test this functionality of Sprint Layout. Moog Prodigy is also a good candidate for cloning because it is a simple design and has no extremely hard-to-find components. It has also a great sound !! Below is a picture where the grey part is the bitmap and green is the new traces I have drawn. This takes some time because it is a one big PCB. After this I must also cross check the traces to schematics and make the final BOM.
