Default Arp Odyssey & Minimoog D Retrofit?

Hi All!

I was just wondering if anyone has tried using the UMR2 to retrofit the Arp Odyssey (black/gold model, serial 2813) or an older Minimoog D (1974 i think, serial 5775). Is this possible?

I looked through the service manuals for both but couldn't find much on the key matrix wiring. I opened the Moog up last week and i'm not sure if it uses the same time of key matrix wiring (need to look in a bit more detail).

Thanks in advance!

Well, I was able to find the schematic for the Arp Odyssey keyboard wiring (see below). Maybe i'm missing something, but it looks like the UMR2 won't work with the Ody as it uses 2 contacts per key and does not use the keyboard diode matrix.

Or is there still hope??

Hi Willstring, I agree. The UMR2 won't be a good choice for this keyboard. I think the best option would be to use a MIDI-to-CV/Gate product to generate the appropriate bus signals.
