Re: Yamaha dx100 blank display

I just put it back together. But now the display is blank. Doubled checked, no connection on the display is loose. What do you think could have happened? It still produces sound so I know the whole thing didnt just die. Sounds like there is either a connection mistake (triple check, and possibly ha...

Re: Help with synthesizing a high pitched hissing sound

Thanks for your reply. I tried that this morning and has helped me get a bit closer. I still can't seem to get that sssss or well defined hiss sound. I'll keep tweaking, thanks again. Don't know if that's what you're after, but high resonance settings can lead to really cool sounds =D> . Just tweak...

White noise (since it features all frequencies) through a HP filter 8-) :) .

Re: Synth stopped producing sound!..

With some luck, you just accidentally pulled a ribbon cable connecting the keyboard and the synth as such off its connector (perhaps not even completely but enough to lose proper contact). I'd check that first.

Re: Non-ideal square waves

The 'corners' may be rounded a little bit, or have 'spikes' (note the difference between the SoundLab Ultimate and the other two). The vertical parts pf the curve may in fact not be exactly vertical (see the third picture in particular!), and so on. I have added three pictures that should give you a...

Re: Yamaha MU50 Battery Replacement

The unit hadn't been turned on for a long time but these days, it is powered many hours per week. I don't know what to do: the battery should be replaced given its age, but I fear to "brick" the device by doing something inappropriate. I wouldn't put too much trust in this. I suggest saving/storing...

Re: Yamaha MU50 Battery Replacement

Replacing a battery is usually not such a big deal. First save/store all data you still require from your MU50. Desolder the battery, solder in a battery holder (make sure to connect it in the correct polarity), and insert the new battery. Upload the data you stored before, and/or do a factory reset...

Re: Alesis MMT-8 Not Syncing Minimoog Properly

How would I integrate a THRU BOX in this kind of setup? MIDI OUT of your master/MIDI source goes into the MIDI IN of the Thru Box. The MIDI OUTs of the Box go to the MIDI INs of your other equipment (slaves). Done. A Kenton MIDI Thru 5 (for instance, I have and use two of those so i have some exper...

Re: using 2032 batteries instead of a barrel styled battery?

Ah, hold on! Forget the previous! That barrel shaped battery is a rechargeable one (sorry, I had overlooked this in the first place), so just replace it with an identical type if its faulty (it's about $10 or even less, but it'll last for a long time). The common batteries are not designed for being...

Re: using 2032 batteries instead of a barrel styled battery?

If I understood you correctly, your 3 pin batteries look similar to these ? If yes, just ignore them having three pins since 2 of them are electrically identical. It's just to make them asymmetric => you can't install them the wrong way round. It depends on the circuit whether using 3 instead of 3.6...
