Korg DDM-110 trig out modification from claps to cymbal

Hello, I've recently dug out my old korg ddm-110 'super drums' and have fallen back in love with its punchy lo-fi sound and will be using it again in some shape or form. I really like the clap sounds in this unit, the only problem is that when I use the trig out to trigger my synth, it then cuts the...

Re: Roland SH-1000 keyboard problem

I was just playing around with the sh-1000 and I noticed the problem is "eliminated" when I set the portamento to "2" (0-10 being the range), which is of course merely getting around it, just thought I'd add this in case it gives away any clues. I'll check that contact suggestion you mentioned later...

Re: Korg X-911 Synthe section is very 'quiet'

Just a quick update, it turns out that a previous owner spilt a drink all over it, thereby shorting out the chips......nice!, but it's up and running again!

Roland SH-1000 keyboard problem

Hello, just thought I'd run this by any experts out there. I'm having a problem with my Roland SH-1000, every time I play the "F" key it plays the note as per normal, but when I release the key it triggers again, but in a slightly out of tune fashion. It only does this on this one note on the higher...

Re: Korg X-911 Synthe section is very 'quiet'

Yeah, I have a feeling something beyond my knowledge is (or not) happening on the board. As for wanting to open up the button, the first synthe button doesn't activate when I select it anymore, I was thinking maybe a bad or dirty contact within the switch itself? Or maybe it's become part of the res...

Re: Korg X-911 Synthe section is very 'quiet'

Well I opened it up, and found yet another peanut?!, cost-cutting?.. removed all the dust and gave the mixer/slider a clean, I couldn't easily identify any glaringly obvious issues... no real improvement to synthe side coming through unfortunately, looks like I will have to get it serviced by a tech...

Re: Korg X-911 Synthe section is very 'quiet'

Hi Sam, thanks for the reply. I've just run a drum machine through the input and when the slider is centre or full left the presets process the drum machine nicely, but when the slider is pushed to the middle or flush right (synthe section) it drops to a barely audible level, the sounds 'feel' like ...

Korg X-911 Synthe section is very 'quiet'

Hello all, I just recently purchased a Korg X-911, and have found that the 'synthe' section on the right to be very, very quiet, in fact, it is barely audible at all in comparison with the fully working preset 'instruments' on the left hand side. I've run a sequencer through it and it triggers off t...
