FS: Korg Monotribe Midi Kits

After some deliberations and supplier improvements, I am now offering this kit again. This will be now available in two versions: 3.5mm Mini TRS Version: Instead of midi jack, I am using 3.5mm TRS to DIN5 cables (included 2x 6ft Rean/Neutrik metal connectors) since drilling 2 small holes anywhere is...

Re: Akai AX-60 vs. Juno 60

AX-60! Hows that for adjudication? ;) For around $400 you can have an amazing synth. Z and I have extolled at length the virtues of the AX60. The AX60 has much that the Juno doesn't. VCOs 5 LFO wave settings (Up, Dn, Tri, Sqr, RND) Separate rate/depth for PWM PWM can effect ANY of the VCO waves not...

Just warm up your coffee by throwing the soldering iron in for a few secs, that will bring up the nerd level considerably.

Re: External arpeggiator?

you want one. I believe you're right about that. ;) Would you say the surface mount stuff is minimal enough to be do-able by someone with only normal, through-hole soldering experience? Its way easier than you think, I actually prefer it to through hole since it goes faster and there is no lead cut...

Re: mfb 522 knob too tight

Those are not pots in the traditional sense, those are PCB mounted trimmers with hex adjusters used as knobs, not really an ideal design IMHO. You could open it up, take out the knob part and spray some fader lube, not ideal but it will help

Re: Dumping Sysex files to Roland D10 with newer USB Midi

"Looking around a bit on the internet, it seems that you can't do Sysex dumps to D-series with newer USB-MIDI interfaces! " Sounds like BS to me. Try something other than Midiox (its pretty fiddly with sysex) Electron C6 or Bome's SendSX would be good choices. I can do sysex dumps from my Wavestatio...

Do you have a link for the one you built? Now that I am doing more restoration work, that would be a handy tool to have and probably save me a lot of work

Re: Scored a Juno-60

You dont only recap because of changes in capacitance, you also recap because of the ESR of the cap goes up with age. This is actually worse since it can damage transistors down the line and is much harder to diagnose (although there are some diy ESR meters than can be built)

Re: concrete two doubts about Electribe ES-1

thanks! 1. i heard that the electribe doesn't send Mute message, because it mutes internally. it just doesn't trigger that part you're mutting. so in Impulse you wouldn't see that part muted. am i wrong? There is no such thing as a midi mute msg. It is probably set up in your software as a normal C...
