Boss SD-1 overdrive with Minimoog?

Hi - has anyone had success with the classic Boss Super Overdrive pedal and the Mini model D?

Or similar guitar pedals?
Seeking a smooth, hard when pushed, but warm distortion, not super ugly. (ie for trance, tech house styles)

cheers

Re: Korg Polysix issues after battery/trace repair...

That could be the best solution (new PCB) - Gearfixer, was it difficult to get the new one all put together, if one has a good amount of soldering experience?

thanks!

Re: Korg Polysix issues after battery/trace repair...

I replaced all suggested on the Old Crow repair site. IC31, diode, traces (with a conductive pen, wire better?), new
battery, same issues.
Apparently the cpu chip is seldom the culprit here.

Filters and oscillators seem intermittent as well.

And very low output, even at 'high' setting.

Re: Korg Polysix issues after battery/trace repair...

Re: Korg Polysix issues after battery/trace repair...

Will do - used a trace pen to do the work, might have missed / crossed over trace paths. Tough one, considering the tight space....

Plugged it in and tried it, sounded pretty awful....

The main damage was under IC31, not the others so much.

Korg Polysix issues after battery/trace repair...

I recently bought a Korg P6 - it had the usual dead, oler battery which leaked. I did the repairs to broken traces, replaced the battery, IC 31, diode, the whole deal... sadly I still have the same issues I started with: 4 or more of the 'programmer' patch buttons stay lit at once. Would this be a C...

Repair for Polysix - all voices output same time?

Hi - just wondering how difficult potentially this repair could be: I am buying a Korg Polysix in good shape for very cheap, only issue is all six voices output sound at the same time....

thanks!

Mapping controller knobs to soft synths?

Hi - I am having a hard time getting my Arturia Minimoog to recognise my controllers knobs (Alesis Micron) so I can tweak cutoff, resonance, etc... same goes for my Korg Mono Poly soft synth. After clicking ' learn', nothing happens...
