DIY TB550A

Finished this guy up tonight (TB550A). Not the easiest of builds, as mentioned patience is key. I made a couple careless mistakes along the way, but all are resolved.

I had to pull out the mics, pick two random windows, & capture the moment for future creative use. Pulled out the camera snapped some images as well.

Decided to make a little “sample pack” from a midi sync experiment.

This is the by-product of testing an MPC 3000 being a master clock & sequencing a MRB-522 via a rat stompbox, a Prophet 08+ValhallaShimmer, & triggering a octatrack mangling a loop of me on the ole drum kit.
