Vintage RFZ Preamp Racking

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

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!!

Boss Chorus Ensemble CE-1 modified

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

Duration 2h for Mod: 100€ + postage (german clients +19% tax) Fairly simple modification to my favourite chorus device. Its possible to use the depth of the vibrato section for the chorus as well now (or switch it back to original). I can perform this mod for your pedal as well! Please contact me here: www.jacobkorn.de/contact The sound is a dx7 string patch btw. Input impedance mod: Replace the 50k volume pot with a 500k log and for R11 ( 470k) 1M in parallel (=319k).    Duration: 2h


Alesis HR-16: custom sound roms

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

Replaced the internal sound eproms of the cheesy sounding machine from 1987. The new roms include 2*48 sounds of Classic drummachines like TR-707, TR-727, 909, Linndrum, DMX, RZ-1 etc. Still needs the overall pitch adjustment mod. Thanks to Alex Erlewein for burning the eproms and the help! more info here: http://www.burnkit2600.com/hr-16/ http://www.vintagesynth.com/misc/hr16.php    

Live Jam with ZAQuencer BCR2000 sequencer

Posted by in equipment, Studio

Being involved in the development of the Zaquencer Firmware in the final stage, he now added it to his arsenal for creating his unique sound: “I already use mostly hardware synths and sequencers, but the Zaquencer still brings something to the table. It´s as fun and intuitive as an oldschool analog sequencer, but it goes much deeper with possibilities if you want it to.” ZAQ audio: https://zaqaudio.com/testimonial
