Ah, sorry. I got up really late today. That was sort-of my first, pre-coffee post.

Is 'kay, just a goofy way of saying I like your organ chops.
They tried to give me advice, down at the record shop. I said "Sit down boys, this may come as a SHOCK. But alls I listen to, it's all freedom rock."

The sliders all broke off, so adjusting the tempo of the auto-accompaniment is a bit of a pain.

Not a bad buy - even at £2.01 more than the stated price!

Nice! Never seen it before. Looks ca. 1980 to me, but I'm partly pulling that out of my ass. Give or take 3 years or so.

Yeah it definitely has the look of a last-generation organ. You can almost picture the designer saying "Why so nervosa? We'll make it look more like one of those synthetic ones and they'll sell like hot ciabatti!"

My pride and joy -

Today I've been spending a great deal of time tweaking/manipulating her sounds with EQ, compression and stationary wah pedal to try and re-create the Farfisa tones heard here - American Analog Set - Continuous Hit Music. I'm finding it hard though because I can't figure out what the fuck he's doing to get that nice tape like octave slide... it almost sounds like a worn VHS tape. I'm guessing it's probably just studio manipulation/droning D chord with a sliding octave overdub maybe? Great tune though.... love the way the abrasive organ becomes a pretty pretty melody when the Jazzmaster then later vocals add to the mix.

Was always fascinated with the organ sound on this track and American Analog Set is what got me obsessed with Farfisas to begin with.

That pic makes me very curious about your music. In a good way.

Me too! ;D

I'm also thinking it could be a new White Stripes set-up...OK Meg, let's loose the snare and cymbals; just follow me on the organ and try to keep a beat with the kick, please?

Hey Ransom which organ is that? Looks cool!

Here's my Philicorda

That's all my gear (OK I have some old Tama drums too) which means ... I have no offset! YET! I'm dying for a Jazzy which I'll probably build from some various parts but more on that in another topic.

I appear to be behind on updating.

Left back corner: Yamaha CN-70. Right back corner: Welson Personal Duo (see first post of the thread). From window: Elka X109 (not mine, staying over as a house guest); Philicorda GM751. On top of that a Roland Jupiter 4, but that isn't an organ and belongs to the owner of the Elka.

For completion's sake, even though they too don't qualify as organs: my old Yamaha PS-30 (not that different from the CN-70, just in a more manageable package) and an M-Audio Keystation 88es, which I use to play Native Instruments B4, amongst others.

I want to learn more about Philicordas (In terms of sounds/features.)

Can anyone of you lucky bastards who own em post some close up front panel pictures? What footages do you get on them? I wish I could hear a demo vid where someone goes through each tab individually then gradually starts adding them together.

livinlavidaloca's seems to have 10 switches in total, OG's version looks like about 2x that?

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Zpp6SRoP ... re=related See I'm obsessed with that organ tone he gets on this corny cover... When he hits the "letttsss doo the tiiiimmewaaaarp agaaaiiin" part, that Philicorda just sounds so wicked. I can't get my Farfisa to get that real sweetness to the high end, it's either too mellow or too ripping sharp for that kind of tone.

In both cases it's rocker switches. On mine a panel runs through the middle of them, making each switch look like two.
