This 80ies east german keyboard features a true 3 line BBD chorus section by the likes of solina and logan plus a 3 band eq that is accessible now via jack. Look for Mod 1-3 in section ST2. Thanks to vermona and Lutz Würker for sending the schematics. Time: 30min.
Got this organ with guts from the infamous GX-1 and the CS80.

This one was suffering from juno cancer on one voice. Uncoating the 80017 chip did partially not work (no resonance). Put a replacement chip on a socket and recalibrated all of the 6 voices. Took 2-3h For the chorus there was used a test-point on the board as input and a new pot was installed for chorus speed. Very useful! 1-2h
Duration 3h for Mods: 150€ + parts (housing, knobs) + postage (german clients + 19% tax) Got this defective, rewired some loose ribbon cables and exchanged the HH-slider. Mods are CH+OH+Ride decays and tune for ride (40106 clock not too stable). Maybe replacing it with an LTC. RENT GEAR HERE: Thx to www.discrete-audio-solutions.com for the parts.

Yamaha CS-60 Kenton MIDIfied for a friend in canada. Duration 5h.
Those great sounding 70’s preamps from the former GDR broadcasting with discrete design and transformers were found on a local fleamarket. Now they needed recycled wooden housings (dia boxes) powersupplies und XLR inputs/outputs. Not the most versatile preamp (no low cut,48V) but perfect for dynamic mics. Really pleased with the coloured tone and the huge amplification of 70dB!!
