Re: Casio FZ-1 Crackly Sound

Rasputin, I checked under the synth for an external switch, and lo and behold there was one under the jack. As with the RZ-1, I used a screwdriver to switch the voltage to 120V. Thanks for the tip!

Re: Yamaha CS 40m Help!

It's C3 that supplies +/- 15V, not C4. Regarding your other questions, I'll take a look tomorrow. 8-) i meant C3... If you could answer the question, if C3 is feeding +15V to or from the PGM Board this would be great! If you are right, then the Voltage is coming from the PGM Board and something the...

Akai S 5000 6000 Mainboard differences?

Hi, i have a broken Akai S 6000. It does not let me flash the flash ram. And it does not come up from the flash. Only sometimes it does boot from the floppy. So i think i must change the mainboard, because of a broken flash ram. I am curious if a Akai S 5000 Mainboard will work on the Akai S 6000? T...

Re: Ensoniq EPS layering 127 wavesamples

the manual says it can hold 127 wavesamples per layer. after reading it again, i found a part where it says that only 1 sample can be on a key on the same layer. so the article is wrong! you can layer up to 8 samples thru the different layers of the eps. Thanks for your help. Nice Forum for gearheads!
