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 this category,  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 while I 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.

UPCYCLED AUDIO - My project for 2023, Upcycled Audio offers vintage equipment that's been renovated and / or upgraded with a view to deliver classic quality performance with modern convenience. You can read more about it here.

MARSHALL JMP-1 STUFF - Putting all my bits 'n' pieces for the Marshall JMP-1 into one place will hopefully make things a little easier for fans of this legendary MIDI valve pre-amp.

Installation of Aurora PSU for the Roland MKS-80

In stock
Product Details



Aurora is a modern switched-mode power supply for the Roland MKS-80. The design is based on modular implementation of high-specification AC / DC converters.

My installation includes a full earth bonding kit. I also include free phase correction of balanced XLR outputs, if required. 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.


- 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.
