Accessit Stereo Spring Reverb

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.

First sounds from ARP 2600

Here is the first recording of my TTSH ARP 2600 clone in action. Speakers are missing and the case. I try to fit my Access stereo spring reverb to ARP. The Reverb has a huge sound and the parametric EQ on reverb is very handy.

Charles Cohen in Europe

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

Moog Prodigy Clone

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.
