It would probably be best to Simply try to find a doner keyboard from a junked synthesizer. The problem is that almost every synthesizer has a slightly different method of keyboard scanning, and so it would have to be an exact match. Other than that I would say that it would be very hard to modify t...

Sorry to be so off topic but I can't help but remember hearing the story of a technician at Roland who got a call about a non-functional S-760 sampler. Appearently the guy had a gig at a park, but there wasn't any means of powering his equipment. So he tried to sample wall voltage electricity to a f...

I've never seen the guts of one of those before but I know that they are very similar to the Korg Polysix. If it has a Nickel-Cadnium battery inside like the Polysix does, odds are it has leaked battery acid and corroded the circuit board around it. If that is the case it is going to be an expensive...

The best way to clean out sliders is to use the cans of compressed air they sell for cleaning out computers. Then follow the compressed air with a potientiometer cleaner such as DeOxit, or something like it from radioshack. That should work in about 90% of cases, but sometimes sliders are just too f...

Oh yeah, bypassing the fuse is pure genius. I've seen it cause quite a few failure modes, and more than a few fires.

The fuse is there to prevent current overload. So if an electric problem arises, the fuse will take the blow instead of the components. The synth will work without one but it's not safe... The synth can fry and there will be nothing to prevent it. That why fuses blow! Hope that helps Wrong. A fuse ...

Please tell me where you can go where nobody has any interest in a DSS-1 for six years. Around here one might last 5 seconds.

The Roland SH-201 gets my vote, it costs 600 dollars. They should be giving them away with the purchase of a guitar pick. Mainly because only a guitarist with an interest in synthesis is going to take one very seriously. Flame me! :blob6:
