Re: Identify These Slider Caps

No they're not the HS-80 (different shape). They look the most similar to JX-3P (originally silver) that someone painted...

Re: GAHH, the main reason I checked this forum is...

WTF? I submitted pics to Synth Guts and it was very helpful in learning about synths, indentifying parts, and troubleshooting... Are they trying to make it so nobody comes here anymore?

Re: Put an HS-60 into a 106 chassis?

The transformer and some boards like the jack/chorus board are different. I have some spare 106 parts if you want to get the ones that are different.

Re: John Bowen Solaris

I've seen used ones pop up for $3500 or less so you might keep a look out for them if you really want one.

Re: Akai AX80 service manual, schematic or service diagnosti

You can usually just plug in the new 3372 without re-adjusting. As I stated above you need to get one of the same rev. I still have a rev B 3372 in stock.

Re: Is a CS-50 "close enough"?

The closest you can get is actually the CS70M. It's the only other one besides the 80 that has the dual-patch layering and uses all the same voice chips. It's also a lot easier to service, and has extras like autotune, unison mode, real patch memories, key split mode that allows for playing 4 patche...

Re: Jupiter 6 - Master Tuning issue

It should be real simple. Just adjust VR1 (VCO1) and VR2 (VCO2) on the bender board. Hopefully you didn't mess around with the D/A Offset adjustment too much... Nope, I didn't touch it more than a smidge when I saw it wasn't moving much / not enough range to possibly bring it back to 0v, so I left ...

Re: Jupiter 6 - Master Tuning issue

OK if the pitch changes by just activating the bender section (not moving the bender) then the bender pot needs to be calibrated/adjusted. Cool - I actually skipped over most of the calibration procedure and went right to that after looking at the D.A Offset but again, my scope wasn't showing me wh...

Re: Jupiter 6 - Master Tuning issue

Could it be an issue with the pitch bender? Yes, an easy way to test this is go to a Split patch and turn off the bender for one side and see if the pitch changes. And yes, this does change the pitch. Here's a video to show- remember, this is a Europa machine so most of this was done for Synthcom t...

Re: Still lusting for a Prophet 10 and a trend I noticed...

MIDI together 2 Prophet-600s w/gligli updates will get you in the ballpark and a lot cheaper... Haven't heard much of the Prophet 600s. Heard they don't sound similar at all. Well I've had both synths for years and they are very similar. They both use the same VCOs and with the extra features of th...

Re: Juno 6 Repair or ??

I'd return it. You should be able to find a fully working one for not much more than that. I supplied IR3R01s for many years but my supply has dried up and I don't know of anyone else that has them. You'd also have to pay a tech to de-solder the old chip and install the new one.
