    Hi,

    I’m creating a nice editor panel to disclose the hidden FMsynth power of my vintage little lo-fi Yamaha PSS-480 keyboard. Should also work with the PSS-580, 680, 780.

    This panel and all my other Ctrlr panels can be downloaded now from http://ctrlr.martintarenskeen.nl

    Looks great!

    The first synth I ever had! I must get another one…

    It’s great to see editors for synths like this. You are a true gentleman.

    Hi…the keyboard was touch sensitive, so it would not be just a simple pair of copper contacts. However, I don’t remember exactly how the keyswitches were made on it, probably didn’t go into them. Most keyswitch designs are subject to very small flakes of dirt or other contaminants; and are generally repairable fairly easy as long as care is taken in disassembly and reassembly. My firm was an Authorized Service Center back then for Yamaha, they may well still have any parts that might be needed.

    I just released an updated version, with a brand new GUI design (many thanks to: Uriah
    theuriah.bandcamp.com), and some small changes and/or bugfixes.

    The Panel works not only for the PSS480, but also for the PSS-580 and PSS-680. And there is a special version available for the PSS-780.
    You can find the latest version of my Ctrlr panels on ctrlr.martintarenskeen.nl
