Quasimidi power adapter specs

I bought my quasimidi quasar without a power supply, the store had lost it. So I got a crappy radio shack adapter, but it worked. Anyway, fast forward 2 years and the unit no longer turns on. I'm hoping it's the power adapter. Can anyone tell me if they have one, and what the corrects specs of the a...

Re: Does anyone use a Novation synth as an external midi module?

Awesome. (but not awesome) What models? I want to gather all this information to go back to Novation with so they might possibly have a fix for me. Today they told me to download Automap. I don't have a mapping error, I have a note hanging error!

Does anyone use a Novation synth as an external midi module?

Specifically with Ableton?

I'm having a hung note issue, and a google search has indicated others using Novation synths as external midi modules also having hung note issues, so it's got me wondering if there's a novation bug.

Anyone done it successfully?

Re: Need a midi guru's help with hung notes

So the update was needed as I was still running OS 1.0, but the hung note issue persists.

It's a 4 bar loop, pretty much just pad chords on each downbeat with some varying bass notes in the progression. The only time it will NOT hang a note is if I click off the clip on beat 3/4 of the 4th measure.

Re: Problem with CME controller

Well, there is no manufacturer warranty actually, because this is "technically used" gear, even though it's not used at all, it was a new replacement for a customer who ended up getting a different board while waiting. But since CME sent it as a replacement, it did not come with a warranty. My other...

Re: Need a midi guru's help with hung notes

Well, since the original post, I've narrowed down the problem. I wandered onto Novation's site earlier today and saw I might be due for an OS upgrade too, so hopefully that will resolve it. (not sure what OS I have now) Will the update ruin my patches though? I've modified a few... Anyway, after rec...

Need a midi guru's help with hung notes

Hoping someone here can help me sort this out. My set up includes a couple virtual synths but also a couple rack synths - an MS2000BR and an A-Station. Instead of recording audio from these for loops in Ableton, I decided it would be better to run them as midi modules, instead recording the midi dat...

Re: Problem with CME controller

So the key is now working again. Whatever the issue is, it's intermittent. Anyone have any thoughts on this? Should I even bother with the performance guarantee, or just have a real pro check it all out? I'm wary of the solder connections on this board, and it's going to be my main gigging board...

Problem with CME controller

I bought a CME vx70 about a month ago from Guitar Center. I bought the extended warranty, I don't know, something just told me I should get it on this as it's my main board now. Anyway, low Aflat is no longer working. When I pick up the board, I can hear something rolling around in there. I can't re...

A little more info after just playing with it some more: It doesn't happen on all presets. So number 11, for example, starting with low C, doesn't play keys 4-5 in a 6 key sequence up the whole board. So, sounds like a voice chip. But, if I turn on arpeggiation and just play single notes, they do al...

Intermittant key issues on Roland Juno 60...

Is there some sort of reset available on the Juno 60? Basically on certain voices, some keys are not available, but if I switch to the next voice, different keys will become unavailable and the other keys previously dead will come to life. Anyone have ideas? I tested it out pretty thoroughly before ...

I just picked up a demo unit Quasar yesterday that had been sitting in the rack in the store since 1994. The original power adapter and manual are long gone, and it's missing one little button, but otherwise in really nice shape. Haven't had a chance to play around with it yet, but I had been lookin...
