I have a stupid question to ask regarding my Midisport interface. I got it all installed on my computer but I have not been able to use my Microkorg to control anything on my computer.

Yeah, I am just wary of opening the sucker up. Easy job, but OTHER stuff could happen. I guess I will just suck it up and let them fix it. They are pretty cool with me thus far in talking about it. They do just about all the repairs for the Guitar Center by me.

I've decided to get it repaired by a professional. They want to charge me $60 for the repair. Do you think this is too much?

thanks a ton machinegeist, you're the best. So, I suppose my next question is, how much will one of these suckers cost and will I, as a completely inexperienced solderer, be able to do it safely? I suppose I will also need to know where I can get a basic soldering kit in addition to the battery. Syn...

HELP! Battery Replacement in an Alpha Juno.

My alpha Juno is asking me to "check battery!" when it powers on. Might I ask if anyone here has done this before or knows of a link to somewhere that shows how to do it? And also, what kind of battery do I need? I have looked online but can't find any info yet.

even the synths that i said sucked.....they can be alright, and can be used in some way, so they aren't completely horrible. but i think the darkstar would be last on my list of things to get. im pretty sure.
