Contacts

My Prophet 600 was fully working, except for the keyboard and its contacts. All buttons and knobs were OK, MIDI as well...but only a few of the keys worked, so I decided to take it apart and restore the keypads

First, unscrew all screws from the wooden sided and open the Prophet 600. Un screw the screws on the bottom to remove the keyboard assembly then unscrew the 2 long baords that keep the gum keypads in place. Gently remove all keypads (those keypads were used everywhere in the eighties, on Korgs, Rolands and so on.

I have bought a pair or excellent JBL LS305 on Amazon and needed a couple of stands to insulate them from my desk (a standard Ikea table), raise them a bit and tilt them backwards to some degree.

After looking for many expensive foam speaker stands, I decided to build them, using some IKEA Stuvad Pot Stands (looks like they are discontinued now, but you can still find some online). They are made of cork which absorb vibrations very good.
I then simply glued some wooden pyramids (courtesy Leroy Merlin DIY Store), on the bottom, in order to better reduce contact with the desk.

Here's the result:

I recently bought a second Arturia Beatstep for cheap and decided to make some small "hacks" and rackmount it to fit my Eurorack modular. It's a very simple modification and I plan to add some more features to it in the near future, like moving the CV and Gate outs on the panel of the Beatstep, powering it up from the main Eurorack bus, and lowering the white plastic chassis as much as possible.
