I’m having the same problem with a 106 that I’m fixing for a friend. Have you checked the electrolytic caps in the power supply?

And, I do like the idea of using an osciloscopic system to create waveshapes above all the menu-diving. While pretty much devoid of the thread topic, Z3ta+ and Absynth softsynths are 2 that I know which let you draw waveforms by hand in oscilloscope-style. If one is interested. What about the Fairl...
