Roland TR-999 KORN HARDCORE CUSTOMS TR-909 Mod

Posted by in KORN HARDCORE CUSTOMS

Duration 10h for Mods: 600€ +Parts and postage (german clients +19%) Spring 2020 new full length video! Completely reverted the previous work. NOW it feels like my very own 909. Notice that signatures from Jeff Mills and Juan Atkins that i was lucky enough to meet during gigs. So the final list of modifications is almost endless since the great nava extra 9 project and Robin Whittle documented a lot of other stuff that i needed to try out. I was actually ok with it now to not being able to switch every…read more

Behringer TD-3 STACHELFISH MOD

Posted by in KORN HARDCORE CUSTOMS, mods & repairs, Studio

After growing up with the sound of Trax, Djax-Up and German Acid+Rave (Harthouse, Junkfood etc) i owned a RE-303 25 years later that I sold since I thought something is missing after working with a couple of TB-303. But now Iam pretty satisfied with the sound of this little beast after a fistful essential modifications outlined in this gearslutz thread. Those were done first (thx Carl) and after that I needed some more (as usual). After some debugging (thanks again to maffez and nordcore!) the „stachelfish“ was born. Here is the 9 min complete walkthrough:…read more

EMU-EMULATOR II + refurbished

Posted by in equipment, KORN HARDCORE CUSTOMS, mods & repairs, News, rent studio, Studio

THIS WILL TAKE A WHILE… RENT GEAR HERE: I had the chance to grab an all-time fav from an Emu collector 30 minutes away from home. The EMU EMULATOR TWO with an PLUS expansion (double tap 0 and ascess second bank). Beside the fact, that he got rid of one of his EII´s i was able to check out the sound of ALL of the EMULATORS (incl. Filters) at his home studio. I was very impressed by the sound of the Emulator I but i liked the versatility of the EII better….read more

E-MU SP-12 turbo mod+repair

Posted by in KORN HARDCORE CUSTOMS, mods & repairs, News

Got this iconic beat machine in town for a fair price. Battery needed a replacement and all of the 30 push buttons were cleaned with isopropanol. Fader 8 is still flakey. After that i experimented with the ssm2044 chip and came up with an external control box for both of the filters. Tweakers heaven!!! Cutoff 1,2 Reso 1,2 Env. Depth 1,2 RENT GEAR HERE:

E-MU EMAX II repair+floppy emulator

Posted by in KORN HARDCORE CUSTOMS, News

I found this broken at a local shop and fixed some problems. First there was the powersupply broken and needed replacement (+15, -15, +5 Volt) Next up it was not possible to load the OS via the floppydrive (are all the included disks failed?) so i replaced it with a gotek+display+rotary. Now it works fine and got thousands of sounds on USB;)

Studer A820 serial control (Max/MSP, Ableton)

Posted by in mods & repairs, News

Studer A820 controlled by serial remote controller, resoldered 9pin cable (different studer pinout) to a usb-serial converter directly to Max/MSP (M4L) in Ableton Live. Now it reads the timer, but i will add some more functionality like biasing other audio parameters  as well:) its unbelievable how future proof the whole design in the mid 80´s already was!!! What drove me crazy (together with Deborah and Daniel as well, thx for your help my friends!) was that Studer did not really document their special pinout for the serial connector. more info…read more
