Arpeggiators in 1976?

In the "The Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald" (Gordon Lightfoot)... I hear what sounds like an arpeggiator here at 2:38 https://youtu.be/9vST6hVRj2A?t=2m38s From what I read online, it seems that it was either a Moog Apollo or Polymoog. It sounds like an arpeggiator to me, but maybe it is a skilled ke...

I could only find a single reference online for...

Trigger +5V to control MIDI?

I bought the drum machine of my childhood - the BOSS DR-220A on eBay.

Is there an effective and economical way to convert the +5V trigger out to control MIDI?

I really like the internal timing of the 220 and I'd like to have it control some of my synths.

Re: Juno 60 Battery Issue

The patches started going out last year on my 60. I had replaced the battery in 1990 so I thought that it just needed a new battery. The tech said that the battery was fully charged. So he cleaned the inside really good and replaced the battery anyway (He put in a clip in so that next time the batte...

Roland Juno 60 Success Story!

My Juno was losing its presets which made me think the battery was going out. I had it changed in '89 or '90. Took it to a guy, he pulled the battery and it was fully charged at 3.3 volts. He put a new one in anyway - with a quick change clip. Great I thought. It's probably shot. He cleaned it up re...
