Atlanta-based keyboard player and tech Eric Frampton gives a detailed explanation of how he restored his classic Rhodes Chroma. He also offers a demo of the various factory presets, and does a shootout with a classic MemoryMoog!
This last year, I had the good fortune to catch up with my friend and fellow keyboardist, Eric Frampton, for a series of in-depth conversations about his impressive array of vintage synthesizers and keyboard instruments! Eric, who’s worked with Paul Simon, the B-52’s, Yanni, and Mother’s Finest, gives some great information and demonstrations on his Rhodes Suitcase Mark II, an Oberheim 4-Voice, a MemoryMoog, a Prophet 10, and a Rhodes Chroma.
In a forth-coming series (to be posted very soon), Eric digs even deeper into the Rhodes Chroma, which (at the time of this filming) was being restored and hence was not playable.
