SQ 1 battery change and reload SORTED!

Boy this job is too simple for works and cost £2 ($4)

All the sounds stay in ROM when you remove the battery.

Remove the base of the synth, un solder the battery, solder in the new one. Switch on and enjoy!!!

just a thought..
each voice is held in either Internal voice or ROM voice.

SO?? are the voices held in ROM and if so would they stay there even with the battery removed?
Thought ROM was Read Only Memery..so are the sounds in a chip and not held there by the battery???
