"This is a heavily customized E-70 organ with the synth functions of all 3 orchestra sections (upper keyboard, lower keyboard, pedals) fully and independently programmable. Furthermore a 4th solo section has been added.

Although many people have compared converting Yamaha E-series organs into programmable synthesizers to turning them into CS80´s I have always looked much more towards the GX1 connection. The GX1 was the mother of all Yamaha CS´ and contained 1 analog solo synthesizer, 2 polyphonic sections and 1 bass pedal section. So how could the Son Of GX ever be really complete without the addition of such a solo synth?

I originally thought about converting an EX-1 but could not find one for reasonable money. So yes, theoretically this can still be outdone but on the other hand a personalized version like mine will be more unique. And more "compact". Even more homely.

Added to the V2 version:

1 Solo section with a monophonic. analog, fully programmable, aftertouch sensitive synthesizer but also has its own independent organ section. I reduced a CSY 2 organ into a version that only has an upper keyboard, containing an analog mono synth but also the full upper organ section. Even the original GX1 did not sport that!
Off course the controller box now also contains all necessary controls for the mono synth.
Furthermore 3 analog audio crushers have been built into the programmer. These can be patched into any of the 6 available outputs and add effects ranging from mild coloring, via ring mod type sounds to full audio mayhem.
In short: The Son Of GX has become even more expressive and capable of experimental sounds!"
