Re: VST sound?

Well, yes, in a sense. The digital info (which will be essentially the same on all computers) is converted into analog voltage by the sound card, so all will sound different. These days however, they are probably all so very close to each other in performance (at least with the lower end units) that...

Re: Overrated

I thought the price for a Jupiter-8 was nuts when people were asking $4500 - 5000. Now it's pushed into the bizarre, rarefied world of 5-figures, at least asking price, anyway...

The LAMM Memorymoog is even worse.

Re: The JX-10 – an underrated synth

An MKS-70 is welded into my rack for the reasons above. :D

Is anyone using the Vecoven microprocessor modification? I have a JX-10 I bought with the thought of doing the mod, but never got around to it. Curious about the snappier envelopes and extra LFO, would be nice to hear some examples.

Re: Midi y cable or merge unit

MIDI Solutions in Canada is the best starting point. MIDI merge boxes that do what they're supposed to do.

Hi Kevin. No, I never got a bite on the above post.

Good idea to post on the Yamaha CS FB site.

Re: Buying a synth in Canada, need help.

I don't recall the exact specifics, but if it's used, you didn't buy it at a store, you're buying for personal reasons (not to resell), and it's over something like 3 or 5 years, there are no duties. I think you have to meet something like 3 out of 4 of those criteria, I'm not exactly sure, it's fuz...

Picked up a nice Memorymoog a lady found in a storage auction. What a sound!

Re: Fatar keybed squeaky noises

White lithium grease, great for wheel bearings.

White silicon grease, great for keyboards.

Memorymoog Schematics?

Would anyone happen to have a copy of the Memorymoog schematics? I've found several links, but they all seem to be broken.

I have all the service manual documents, just missing the large sheet schematics and circuit board layouts and block diagram stuff.

TIA!

Re: Isolation Transformer

Are you talking about for 120 VAC power or for audio signals? I have a couple of (expensive) Jensen boxes I use for the occasional audio hum I can't seem to fix any other way. They work great with synths, never have overdriven one. For power, I used a Sola isolation transformer for a while but it st...

Re: CS-80 Question: 70 ohm Resistance Between+15V and GND

Of course working load and unpowered resistance are two different things so there still could be a problem. Just saying it's not like it's a dead short or something, and at least it makes somewhat reasonable sense. I get 187 ohm on the CS-50 from the ground rail to the +15 rail. Please let us know w...
