TR-606 midi modification

by realeoin on Thu May 03, 2012 9:46 am

Hi

probably not in the right place for this but you'll have to forgive me.
have a x0x0x with a lovely aluminum case supplied by x0xshop.de - love it - much respect to x0xshop
just picked up a tr-606 recently and want to fit it for midi
individual note triggering and full velocity sensitivity would be preferable if possible
can anyone recommend a good kit to go for? any recommendations? anything i should avoid?
don't want to just rush out and get any old thing. would definitely like full velocity for what i do.

Cheers
realeoin

I'm working on a TR-606 mod... including aluminum enclosure, MIDI (individual note trigger and accent), individual outputs with 6.3mm jacks, and awesome sound mods.
I'ts still in progress... I think I'll have the first one in about three weeks... or four.
the enclosure is similar to your aluminum x0x :mrgreen:

cheers,

Wow. That sounds awesome. Thanks again for the x0x enclosure. It looks awesome.
I'm not going to mod the 606 too much. Just midi and maybe outputs later.
Can you recommend a good midi kit ?

Hi,

Do you have any more news on this?

As I'm currently looking for a midi solution for my 606, and I've found this one that adds shuffle to it aswell! But it doesn't look like he does a diy effort
