Notron MK1 servicing

So, my Notron MK1 is acting up and I'd like to find a reputable tech that has experience with fixing Notron sequencers. I'm located in Montreal, Canada, but I'm willing to send it for servicing in the US. Worldwide is my last resort. I did a quick look through the sticky on synth techs, and if I get...

yeah!

novielo - good seller

I made a deal with novielo for an zoom rfx-2200. The effects unit was in great shape, packed well, and shipped in good time. If you wanna deal with him, you should have no problems. Good communication too.

Re: Headphones - what do you use?

Wouldn't be too optimistic about those replaceable cables. Have replaced mine 2 times after the plug of the original broke. They make bad contact somehow. After some years of the first replacement one side eventually stopped making sound, and my current cable is very sensitive, touch it, and one si...

I have a Pulse+ and I used to use its MIDI to CV/Gate converter to run a CS-5. I don't use it anymore because I sold the CS-5... it is a very nice converter and one of the reasons why I'm reluctant to sell the Pulse+. I keep the MIDI hardware sequencers separate from the CV hardware sequencers. No s...

Hardware sequencers are great for fiddling with a few patterns, but I don't find them easy to create entire songs. You gotta plan it all out. And I don't like planning... also consider that some of my hardware sequencers are better suited for live manipulation (notron, maq 16/3) and others are a joy...

I guess I should have said "only tweakable through sysex". The mks-7 has hardly any knobs to speak of. Thanks for the clarification, though, as I thought you could tweak the 106 with regular, good, ol' midi... no weirdo stuff.

Re: I wanna play too

That's what the guitar strap is for. If you wear it around your neck all day (and slip it behind your back while doing dishes), you won't have to worry about not having room for it. :lol: I never thought of attaching synths to my body... be it using straps, duct tape, string... this opens a whole n...

I wanna play too

1. DX or CZ? If any DX is being offered, I'd go for the DX-200. I like boxes. Besides, I had a CZ-101 and didn't like the programming. Ugh. 2. Juno-60 or Juno-106? I had a MKS-7 which has the same engine as a Juno-106, but tweakable via sysex messages. Heavy as a tank. It just had to go. Not impress...

fwiw...

I have two boxes moded by diabolical devices: [1] an mc-202 with zillions of extra ins and outs and [2] a circuit bent tr505. The quality of their work is top notch. They can be a little pricey, but you won't be disappointed. Or... at least... I hope you won't be disappointed. :) I like the MG-1 the...

85%-90% My notron mkI has some problems with setting notes and midi channel on row 13. I don't have a work around for setting the midi channel, but I can set a note on row 12 or 14 and shift the sequence up or down. It would be great if I could find a tech to give it a once over. A good cleaning and...

I'd love to try sequencing modular gear with it, but what I have done is send it's CV out to a Moogerfooger MF-102 ringmod to modulate its carrier. I've got a recording of it somewhere, and it's just unbelievably wacky. Cool tip... Thanks... I just picked up a MF-102 in a trade. Can't wait to try t...

I dunno... I've always liked the tb303... well... the Devil Fish upgrade. The original version is a bit boring, but the Devil Fish opens up some interesting fun. My new (well... new to me) mc-202 is on the way. I'm looking forward to patching the mc202 with my Devil Fish and SH09. The mc202 is total...
