Re: sh-09 oscillator wackiness.. can I repair?

thanks guys. So if indeed it is the caps in the power supply, then I'm guessing what's happening is the other circuits on the synth are getting really inconsistent voltage and that's what's causing all the wobblyness?

sh-09 oscillator wackiness.. can I repair?

Hi there.. I have an SH-09 with some issues. The tuning is very unstable. Sometimes it will hold tune for quite a while.. maybe 30 minutes or so, but usually it is wobbling all over the place. another thing I have noticed is that moving just about every slider will nudge the pitch around.

The slider for envelope amount is non responsive! :( :( :( So my question is, what is the likelihood that I pop this open and clean it off ...
