Re: EMU ESI-32 won't work with SCSI2SD

Does anyone have any ideas for how to fix this, or could it be a bad SCSI2SD device? Probably a termination issue. The SCSI2SD has SCSI termination which can either be set or disabled (the method to do so depends on the exact SCSI2SD revision -- v5.0, v6.0, etc.), and the ESI itself has resistor pa...

Re: Oberheim DX - Old Program Cassettes - WAV to MIDI?

It's not insane. You should post the WAVs (or FLAC) here. I think someone with one of the last U.S. models would be able to do it fairly easily. It's conceptually possible to do it with just a computer program, but it would require a bit of effort, and the market for such a utility is probably very ...

I think the best thing to do is to narrow down where the potential fault is by using a pre-recorded tape (New Kids on the Block?) to check the CUE bus, STEREO bus, and AUX SEND outs.

Re: Change of internal transformer JP-8000

I know this is an old post, but would anyone have any info how this was done. I am looking to do the same for the same reason. Thank you I believe the JP8000 transformer has a few voltage markings across the top, such as 240V, 230V, 120V, 100V, and NC. Currently on your transformer, there should be...

Re: Please help Urgently! Korg M1 noise level

I also do not know if it is natural in M1 or not) but as soon as I connect it to sound card high noise appears I am going to assume the M1 and the computer/audio interface (sound card) are plugged into the same electrical circuit in your residence. There are a couple things you can try: - Power the...

Re: Yamaha RX11 Repair Thread

So does anyone know what kind of transformer is needed, should I try and fix it? ;) I am usually the first to advocate for repairing things (sometimes irrationally), but I would consider just parting it out. I'm a fan of Espen Kraft and all, but his claim that it is "one of the best drum machines e...

So I put the FF.CFG for the EPS16+ and the img (800k) for the OS1.3, and... still get the E34 message. I try a different USB stick, same E34. I had tried the hfe (1961k) versions, still the E34 message. If you have the normal 3-digit number display on the Gotek rather than the OLED upgrade then the...

Re: Ensoniq SQ-80 Front Panel Button Problems - Please Help

Maybe I am totally misunderstanding something? Probably not. All I've had to go by is schematics, and those schematics aren't even 100% for your board revision :D It's entirely possible that almost all of the little caps are decoupling caps for the ICs. And the cap which has one leg not connected t...

I cannot find C23. The schematics are a red-herring of sorts because your revision of the display board doesn't match.

Re: Ensoniq SQ-80 Front Panel Button Problems - Please Help

Well unfortunately, it does look like the Rockwell 6500 is at fault. The whole length of trace and all of the switches pass the continuity test. It wouldn't be the first time, but double-check that there isn't a bad solder joint on the 6500 or something shorting that pin, etc. I would check that th...
