Re: Are all SH-101's the same?

Synths that run on a power brick/wall wart don't require specific voltages. The power brick, however, does.

Re: Arturia and their ‘throw away’ approach to hardware

That's pretty bad. Novation are the complete opposite. Sent me a free replacement encoder for a KS4. Later when they couldn't find any documentation on it, they went and tested patch transfer from K Station to V Station to figure out how it worked. Native Instruments have been pretty good too. No e...

Re: Novation Supernova 2 - 24 Voice Expansion Board Project

Best of luck on your project!! Someone cloned the voice expansion boards for the Q/XT a while ago. Not sure if they're still in production but hey, they figured it out!

Re: Oberheim DX and SC Drumtraks = virtually the same?

I think the DX is much better, sounds great and the swing on it is lovely. The swing on the drumtraks on the other hand, is fairly useless. The swing is goddawful. What were they thinking? I thought my unit was broken but it's supposed to sound that way. I prefer the sounds on the Drumtraks though,...

Quasimidi Sirius: Black or Grey?

Seems like the Quasimidi Sirius came in two colors: Black or Grey. Some people say the black ones sound better, or something along those lines. Can anyone confirm or have any info on how or why they might sound different? The black ones seem to be less common and run off of a 10.5 v AC adapter rathe...

Turns out it was my CS6x sending it some kind of MIDI data that it didn't like... Very weird!

JD-990 wants to factory reset itself periodically?

Bought a JD-990 recently and after warming up for a while, a prompt comes up every now and then asking if I want to perform a factory reset. If I say "cancel" some of the presets will be slightly corrupted (?) and panned a bit to the left. This seems to only appear when I scroll through patches. But...
