Re: Your latest musical purchase

Just received a Korg nanoKontrol2 MIDI control surface as a birthday gift from my wife and son, along with a powered USB hub and mic stand clip. I'm planning to use it as a physical controller for some of my iPad apps, most notably Galileo Organ.

Re: Ensoniq SD1 issue

Just as a heads-up, unless you sourced the 68HC11A1P directly from another Ensoniq (such as a chip pull from Syntaur, etc.) then you'll likely have a completely non-working keyboard when you swap out the chip. The 68HC11 has 512 bytes of on-chip EEPROM which can (and, in this case, needs to) be pro...

Re: Ensoniq SD1 issue

Nah, not on the KPC board but the actual induction PCBs. In the upper-left of your last photo there are three groups of two resistors. In the center pair of resistors there's a transistor.

Re: Ensoniq SD1 issue

I don't know if this is the problem, but Q31 on the keyboard looks like it might be cooked. I don't know if that's the lighting or not, but it's a possibility. Is that what's circled here in black? I'll open it up and check that again.....might be the lighting but I may have missed it. Thanks for t...
