CS-15 portamento slider cap

Does anyone know where I could score one of these? I checked the technologytransplant website which is great but they list this part as "out of stock".

Thanks

Re: Parts for VINTAGE SYNTHESIZERS.....

Perhaps not a vintage synthesizer parts repository but a pretty awesome electronics store in Torrance, CA called Torrance Electronics. They have everything... probably.

Here's the Tetra first, then the XS. I swept the filters a smoothly as possible. The image also reveals the stair steps quite nicely.

"Potentiometers" on new DSI synths - *Rant Warning!*

Are these potentiometers or are they ultra-hi resolution encoders? They certainly feel a lot better than the old encoders but there's still stair-stepping happening... at least on the tetra there is. If you crank the resonance up so it accentuates the overtone series then slooooooly sweep the filter...

Re: Sonic Study

Not sure about that as I haven't heard it before. I was experimenting with sounds who's timber's are pretty much all different and the whole piece is in a constant state of change. All of the non-synth sounds were recorded on to a Zoom H4n and I listened for the more interesting parts, cut them out,...

Re: Sonic Study

Thanks Zamise! :D Yeah, not really intended to be a song but more of a sound collage. So there isn't really a distinct rhythm or musical melody, just hints of them here and there in a couple of spots. I think it's more John Cage-ish type of stuff. There was an early electronic musician that did some...

Re: A question for owners or users of the Synthacon.

Nice to know there's at least a couple of synthacon filter clones out there. If I ever get around to building up another modular, I'll probably add one of the clones. The thing that I liked the most about the filter is when you crank the resonance up and modulate the filter with VCO 3, you get this ...

Re: Arp Odyssey help needed

So the Capacitors definitely need to be changed out?

Yep +15 and -15 Volts DC I see that now. There was AC voltage present though... strange.

Arp Odyssey help needed

Howdy folks, I'm troubleshooting a non-functional Ody because it does not produce any sound. Looks like its an Odyssey II (2823) on the bottom manufacturers tag. I've downloaded an Arp service manual from http://www.emusic-diy.org/ArpManuals/Odyssey?action=AttachFile&do=get&target=ody_06.gif and I'm...
