Keyboard of the Month - June - Nominations
« on: Thu, 05 July 2018, 07:54:10 »
Wow, so I totally lost track of everything and thought I had another couple of weeks but I realised that it's July and I haven't put up a June nomination thread yet! What's wrong with me???

So May's winner was Xack's Arke



Please remember that all nominations should have been posted somewhere in the forum during the month of June.

Pretty much as soon as this nomination thread ends i'll put up another one for July and hopefully we'll be back on schedule.

Can we get them to build the Alps ten feet higher and get Cherry to pay for it?

Just to get this thing going, I'm nominating my own NOS Copam K-430 blue Alps keyboard I brought back to life from the hell of quasi XT protocols.
As far as I know, there was only one other K-430 posted on GH (or the whole internet) and that user never got in running.  This uses the stock coiled 5 pin DIN cable but in fact, runs on TMK with a custom, hotswappable PCB. You can look at the embedded pictures on my post though the more simplified Imgur album can be found here.

+1 for this but mainly bumping for opponents (no need to vote on a one-horse race!)

I think the Realforce 86u that @nmur did a real number on is also worthy of a nomination.

I realise that it may be putting people off that they have to go back into June to find boards to nominate so I'm going to try and get this thread going with some of mine.

Firstly I nominate Proto's handbuilt board which i'm going to need some more info about

+1 to MandrewDavis's resurrected NOS Copam K-430 blue Alps keyboard.
That controller mod stuff is still voodoo to me... I need to learn how! LOL I'm totally cool with resurrecting retro boards, and i gotta say I like this one.
