There's a guy (his name evades me at the moment) but he's managed to mod fatar keybeds to work on the Pro One. I bought one and it's amazing and makes the Pro One a new instrument. Over the past few months he's supposedly been working on a mod for fatar keybeds for the OB8 and it's supposed to come out this summer so I'm looking forward to that. That'll be an amazing swap for my OB8.
Fatar on the OB8 would be a dream! Please let us know if you hear anything further regarding that.
