PRODUCTS - With over forty years of electronic design and manufacturing experience, mostly in the audio industry, I still love taking on challenges and winning! For me, designing something and seeing it through to a commercial product, is as creative as writing and producing in the studio. Under PRODUCTS, you can browse through the things I make to help musicians, producers and engineers, along the way. 🙂

SERVICES (Technical) - Don't let the fact that you're unable to install one of my systems into your beloved piece of vintage equipment scare you off! I'm more than happy to do that for you. I also repair and  service studio and live performance gear as well as renovate vintage synthesisers, signal processors and guitar amps.

SERVICES (Creative) - I've been involved with studio and live music production, since 1985. It's my passion and I have a huge wealth of knowledge and experience. Being a musician myself, I'm able to connect with my clients and make magic things happen. I'm also a keen photographer, website and graphics designer. If you think I can be of assistance, please do check out this category.

Product Details

Aurora is a modern switched-mode power supply for the Roland MKS-80. Included is my V02 mounting bracket for Board B, all hardware for wiring, Optional 3-pin IEC C14 socket and C14 boot. Buyers will also receive a Certificate of Authenticity / Test Certificate. The former has the option enter the installer's name, date of installation and the serial number of the MKS-80 into which it'll be fitted.

Aurora is available with two types of Board B. The conventional Aurora Board B comprises mains protection and filtering. Aurora Board Bx however, also has an on-board CR123a battery holder allowing you to do away with the back-up battery on the CPU board. There are three main advantages to this; a CR123a has a considerably larger capacity than the original CR-1/3N. In fact you'll probably never have to change it in your lifetime! Secondly, in the event that the battery leaks, battery acid will NOT go all over your precious CPU board. Finally, it's soooo much easier to check the battery voltage and doesn't require lifting the two MKS-80 voice-boards. More info' here.

APRIL 2021 - Aurora is now available with the V06 data cartridge slot reinforcing plate.

If your MKS-80's data cartridge slot is broken, V06 could be the fix you've been waiting for! If your MKS-80's data cartridge slot isn't broken, then make sure that it never will by putting 2mm of solid steel behind it. Read more here.

NOTE: The Aurora Board Bx ships WITHOUT a battery. The postal service here in the UK really doesn't like it.

When your Aurora is ready to ship, you'll be e-mailed a Test Certificate / Certificate of Authentication.

Full user installation instructions available after purchase.

Aurora installation instructions are now available in German.
