Got a D-550 and PG-1000 recently.

Great sounds, and the PG-1000 makes it easy to program.

Nope, not in Tassie, I'm in Melbourne. Its been long since I've seen any nice vintage synths come up for sale in Australia. I almost got myself a Jupiter 8 w/ Encore midi for $1650 AUD but the guy bailed on the deal the day I was to pick it up. Was a while ago though. Again, best of luck with the re...

I've been doing a bit of research on availablilty of NOS CEMs, SSMs and other useful chips for synths, etc. To be honest some of them aren't as rare as they seem, just difficult to access for individuals. Many exist in inventory and can be sourced from various obsolete component brokers, however the...

AX-60 is a nice analog poly, especially for the price.

Looking to get my hands on an S612+MD280 sampler/disc drive combo to hook up to the AX60. Anyone got one for sale?

Btw, thanks for the manual hinotori :D

They look like an interesting project. Afaik the PCB/kits are available. A bit much for my skill level at the moment, but I hope to have a crack at it one day. There's also website with PDF scans of the original construction manual. Just type 'eti 4600' in google, its within the first few results. A...

Here are a couple of links: http://ipmsstockholm.org/magazine/2002/03/stuff_eng_tech_car_paint.htm http://modeltech.tripod.com/ The links discuss techniques for model cars, but the same principles apply. One site suggests using automotive paints, the other regular model paint. As with all painting, ...

I've googled it to no avail, and used the search in the forums. Maschinengeist: As I stated in the thread in which I posted previosuly (link given), the link to the manual is no longer available so I started a new thread as there were no replies to my post in that older exisiting thread. Please if a...

Thanks for the reply. I will have to wait for my midi-to-usb cable to arrive so I can dump the patches to my PC. Is there a particular software I need to use in order to dump them? Never had to do anything like that before, only my second synth/module. I have an AX-60 but its not connected to anythi...

Has anybody still got the file?

Thanks.

D-550 battery and Musitronics mod

Hey guys, just got hold of a Roland D-550 and a PG-1000 is on the way. Only problem is that the internal battery in the D-550 is flat so I need to replace that. Do I need to dump the memory via MIDI/sysex beforehand? Or if I replace the battery without dumping the memory, will the unit just reset to...
