Juno-60 shuts off upon pushing "Save" for patch storage

Any ideas? Whenever I press the "Save" button, it just shuts off. I have to flip it off and back on, and it's back to normal - without saving anything. I previously never really wanted to store any patches in the Juno, as I'm not a performer and I use the Juno as sort of a super friendly "cook up a ...

Re: why my juno 60s sound different

Alright, life has calmed down and I'm gonna get to work on my Juno-60 today I think. Thanks for the extra info on calibration. I'm going to take my time, since this will be my first calibration of any synth. Really excited to learn and hopefully make my Juno sound a little sweeter. I was planning on...

Re: why my juno 60s sound different

I've had my Juno-60 for 3 years now and it has always sounded so good I never even thought about calibration. But I own all the necessary gear and have some elementary electronics knowledge, and this thread has totally convinced me to look into it. The previous owner was a bit of a synth enthusiast,...

Re: D-50 joystick repair?

Alright I'll try that when I get home, but what I'm saying is I put it on upper, and when it's on the left side but I move it up/down I can change the values nice n smooth, perfectly - when it's relatively centered it seems to work fine as well, but when the joystick is favored to the right of the x...

Re: D-50 joystick repair?

Nope, totally assumed those were for programming each half of the sound hah. As I said barely used it except as a nice playing keybed! So the joystick does indeed work, but seems to not be so great on the right side of the socket, like it'll not change the value smoothly like on the left side of the...

D-50 joystick repair?

So for the past year or so that I've had my D-50, I never really delved into programming much or even really using it as a synth, I mostly use it as my main keyboard controller because I absolutely love the way the keybed plays. I got it for 100 bucks on craigslist, it's in fantastic shape cosmetica...

Re: VSE - Good trader/seller thread

Good seller: Skillet Purchased a Monomachine MKII from him for a real solid price, was in great condition exactly as described/photographed, everything works as it should, packed well and he shipped it the next day. He was even nice enough to list it on eBay for me if I payed a few extra bucks for ...

Re: ESQ-1 + Guitar + ???? = Amazing

Monoevolver is amazing, but it is monophonic (one note at a time). That being said it certainly doesn't *sound* like your usual monophonic synth, because with 4 oscs and all of the modulation and sequencing options you can make some really, really, impressive evolving (duh) sounds. If you're happy w...

Re: Beginner Synth (Under $700)

RADIAS Rack plus some basic MIDI keyboard. Or just get the key version. But from the choices, go RADIAS. You may be like "wow... lots of stuff, no idea!" when you start, and I was too at first (started on a Nord Lead 2X), but you will pick it up over time and be glad that you have a full featured ma...

Re: A New Synthesizer

2 grand or slightly over could get you a Nord Lead 2x and a DSI Monoevolver keyboard version. Or a Lead 3 + MEK and still under budget. Or Blofeld for your poly + MEK. Other VA's to consider would be Alesis Ion, Novation Nova/Supernova, Yamaha AN1X. I say this because some people love the Nord sound...

Re: Falling in love....

My new MEK. I havn' t been this excited/blown away by a piece of gear since I got my very first synth in 2007 which was a Lead 2X. Since that novelty wore off, nothing has really forced me to stay up way later than I meant to besides the usual playing guitar, but now the MEK is causing the same beha...

Re: A reasonably priced synth which plays great ARPs

Gotta disagree here, the desktop Evolver has no arp at all and the MEK has the most basic up/down/up-down/random arpeggiator imaginable. It was added as a bonus feature after the OS was pretty much completed and doesn't even have dedicated buttons, it's a combo press not even written on the front p...
