Re: Case foam melting onto Taurus Pedals...

Greetings, I love your blog. Anyway, I'd say slow and steady is going to win the race here. That foam may be conductive so I'd make sure it was all removed before turning the machine on. If it were me, I'd probably be using the tweezers, compressed air, and a little distilled water to attack that me...

Re: Help with a Casiotone MT-140

The MT-140 seems to be very similar to the MT-540. This link has a bunch of useful info about the MT-540 which will probably help you on your quest of modding the MT-140..

EPS 16+ Error 144 and Solving Overheating Issues

Greetings, I got an EPS 16+ which runs fine except it occasionally gives an Error 144 message. Judging by my research this is extremely common in EPS 16+s and often stems from overheating issues caused by poor heat dissipation on the power supply. I'm thinking about installing a small computer fan i...

The service manual I looked at didn't have schematics in it which is insane. It looks like there are scans here:

Re: VSE - Good trader/seller thread

I completed a trade with mskellam aka Matt from Corvallis. It was actually local-ish so I got to meet him and invited him into my studio. Great guy and very trustworthy. I wouldn't hesitate dealing with him in the future.

Looking For the Owner's Manual For a Korg SQD-1

Greetings,

I've checked all of my sources but I can't find an owner's manual for the Korg SQD-1 sequencer anywhere. If anybody has one it'd help tremendously. I have some very interesting scans that I've done myself that may entice those who need enticing. Thanks for reading!

Re: VSE - Good trader/seller thread

Great trader/seller: Hair (Miles)

I did a gear + money deal with him. The synth I got was well described, packaged well, and shipped promptly. I talked to him on the phone (just to be sure I was sending my gear to a good place) and he's a great guy. I hope he enjoys that S612 as much as I did..

Re: I need a good affordable Vocoder

I agree with the posts above. The MicroKorg will be your most popular option and now that a new model is out you may be able to find one for real cheap. PAiA makes a vocoder if you're interested in the DIY thing. I owned an Electrix vocoder for a couple of years and really disliked it. I didn't like...

Yup, that will be the strategy. TX two MIDI channels simultaneously..

Re: MIDI to Arpeggio Clock In?

??? Just make different drum patterns with different quantisations and switch between the patterns when you want to change. Doing it this way works great because you can program much more interesting rhythmic arpeggios, like triplets and stuff, that you couldn't do if you were just straight syncing...

Re: Modding MS-10 to have VCO output? Possible?

That seems like it should be real simple. I did this mod to one of my MiniKorgs without a hitch. You could look on the schematics and see where the signal leaves the VCO. Carefully take a test probe and see if it's outputting the VCO signal (it should be if it's the right spot). You may want to chec...

Re: help with my moog satellite

Is there a fuse? Make sure it's not blown. It sounds like if it's anything more serious than that you'd probably want to do a little research into electronics/synth repair before you start poking around or you could just take it to a tech. The problem could be numerous things. If you are comfortable...
