Re: Jen part

Re. Kenton kit - huh, I hadn't seen that one before. Although it's for Hz/V or V/Oct, not midi. I once midified a Jen SX1000 by soldering optocoulers to all the keys and connecting all of those to a midi-to-trigger pcb. Did the same to a CS70m lol. But in that case I knew the Kenton kit for that one...

Re: Access Virus Ti2 Indigo

There's no such thing as a TI2 Indigo or TI Indigo. The Indigo predates the TI and has no usb for remote "Total Integration" control.

Moroder synth ID

A friend was asking me about this synth being used as a prop in 1977 - looks like a custom/DIY job to me.

Any ideas?

Re: KORG MS-10 PATCHING DISASTER

Try plugging and unplugging cable into the various input jacks, especially the VCO CV IN. Alternatively, plug a cable from the KBD CV OUT into the VCO CV IN. Since the jacks are normalized, it could be that they're not making proper contact anymore when the cables are removed. Plugging and unpluggin...

Re: SCI Pro One vs Pioneer Toraiz AS1 video

What's with the AS-1's weird phasing, especially noticeable on the last patch?

Re: Casio RZ-1 Custom Firmware

Somewhat related: is it just me, or are there some versions of the RZ-1 where you can change the pattern while playing and others where you can't?

Re: Aren't we due for a new Yamaha QY module?

Ah, a successor to my RS9000 ES lol http://sneak-thief.com/RS9000.jpg Speaking of the Montage bits you pasted on that mockup, I bought a Montage 7 a month ago. After having an RM1x and 2 RS7000s, I skipped all the Motif stuff because it didn't bring anything innovative to the table. And the UI for t...

Re: Korg Polysix - resonance doesn't work + other issues
