MPG-70 for Super JX & MKS-70 Pre-order
We are taking pre-orders for the MPG-70 7U rackmountable controller for the Roland Super JX and MKS-70 synthesizers. This controller was specifically designed for units that have Vecoven 4.12 firmware and PWM boards installed. The MPG-70 gives access to all of the extra voice features added by the expanded Vecoven mods. Units are expected to ship in October.
The module is available in 2 configurations. A fully assembled unit can be purchased for $850 + shipping. This includes 6 pin DIN cable.
A full DIY kit (all parts included) is available for $650.
The module features 96 controls and several buttons, a front faceplate, and a rear sheet metal enclosure. The enclosure allows the unit to be angled forward and set on a tabletop, as well as be rackmounted. The controller uses the 6 pin DIN cable to communicate with the JX.
The MPG-70 features a random patch generator, a scratch program generator, and the ability to select whether the upper or the lower tone is being edited.
The pre-order period will run until units begin shipping. Shipping will be calculated when the units are boxed. Shipping charges will be billed to each customer when units start to ship. All people who place pre-orders will receive invitation to a group where progress reports and pics get posted.
It may be possible to get discount shipping rates by bundling orders to Canada, UK, and AU. This will be discussed in the Facebook group when it is time to ship the orders.
