you may have to open her up and make a note of the make/model numbers of the sound and network/modem and then download some drivers and stick em on a USB stick or burn them onto a CD. trawling for drivers isnt much fun - but it should be do-able if its a modern ish one. and thanks a lot for the "hel...

it depends on the voltage of the card that your sampler takes... and also how big the maximum card the sampler will take. what have you got? i'm lucky enough to have an old fuji camera that died so i nicked the card out of that. maybe you can see if there are any cheap old fuji's with the card still...

you should only need to use isopropanol/cleaner stuff if theres something nasty and gooey in there. using a slightly damp tissue wrapped around your finger should be enough to get the grime/dust off the contacts - i had a dead key once and it was down to biscuit crumbs or something in there :?: of c...

after-touch and velocity are often problematic on older keyboards - its to be expected to a certain extent. giving the key contacts a good clean can sometimes help with key related stuff, a lot of muck gets in there over a keyboards lifespan! not sure about the delay circuit tho, open it up and have...

waldorf Q volume knob

does anyone know what value potentiometer i need to replace the volume knob on a Q keyboard? i know i can measure it - its just that it will be a pain getting the board off as you have to remove a whole section of the controls and i'd rather not leave it in bits whilst waiting for the part. waldorf ...

yeah, i've got a kp1 one myself. the phono input essentially adds a funny EQ onto the signal to match it into a line level input, so you would be going from line->phono->line. not sure what that would do to your sound but oh well. http://www.esdl.co.uk/body/invriaa/invriaa.htm from a quick search. i...

Why don't you just get a xylophone instead of a DX-7? Seriously,...
