Is he seriously asking $1,999 for for a Polysix?? HARD PASS.
No, I didn’t mention the price, since our currency sucks at the moment and it might be misguiding. The price on the PolySix is $1400
Oh, ok that seems more reasonable. That key issue sure is weird though.

Re: Still possible to get a Juno 60 for a good deal?

I almost bought one online from Musicgoround for $1200 last year but my credit card thought it was fraud and it kept declining the transaction. It sold the next day to someone else. :lol: It's not worth it... I would try a Juno 106 or a Juno 6.

Re: NIN Nord Lead on eBay. guy immediately gets defensive

I mean h**l someone made this blog thinking I was ripping someone off. Just let that sink in. And imagine the crazy emails and denial I got. Its pretty wild when you have the nin auction serial numbers matching the equipment, with the box sent from them, and emails from nin gear and people still gi...

Re: Should I trade my microKORG for a Roland XP60

XP60 does indeed regularly sell for a lot more money. Pretty good deal when you factor in the price difference.

Re: Korg M1 Problem, Only UP button responding

Definitely the tact switches. I had a Wavestation EX that had this problem. I ended up buying a desoldering gun and replacing all of them. If you're handy with a soldering iron, you can get the job done in a couple hours. Also, be careful with those plastic circular buttons on the M1, they can snap ...

The twangy sound in the intro is definitely DX7 or something FM.

Re: Are all SH-101's the same?

Synths that run on a power brick/wall wart don't require specific voltages. The power brick, however, does.

Re: Arturia and their ‘throw away’ approach to hardware

That's pretty bad. Novation are the complete opposite. Sent me a free replacement encoder for a KS4. Later when they couldn't find any documentation on it, they went and tested patch transfer from K Station to V Station to figure out how it worked. Native Instruments have been pretty good too. No e...

Re: Novation Supernova 2 - 24 Voice Expansion Board Project

Best of luck on your project!! Someone cloned the voice expansion boards for the Q/XT a while ago. Not sure if they're still in production but hey, they figured it out!
