SH-101 freq filter slider no longer working

My red SH-101, which used to be a faultless machine, has started a bit quirky. Specifically, moving the FREQ slider does nothing, no matter what the other settings are. That said, the filter itself appears to be A-OK ... can be opened/closed from the other VCF and bender settings. So, just a complet...

Re: synth bongo identification

Bunchie Fox is specifically mentioned as playing "Electric Bongos" on the track in the album gatefold, plus Stanley Crouch's liner notes has the line "Add to the mix electric bongos (yes, they do exist)...". Amazing track, nevertheless. Being that it's a 1975 track, I'm wondering if he's playing som...

Ultranova purchased ... ditch my other Novations?

Finally purchased an Ultranova online today, largely due to all of the praise here on the VSE ... oh, and it's blue. Somehow there's now both an X-Station and a XioSynth around here somewhere as well. I'm assuming there's a significant amount of overlap going on now by obtaining the Ultranova, so an...

Re: POST ANY INTERESTING EBAY / CRAIGSLIST LISTINGS HERE!!!



Couldn't sell an LM-1 for multiple $4k attempts, then $3500, so ... relisted for $5k?
Apologies if this is a VSE member, but regardless, eBay psychology sure is an odd bird.

Addendum: any new eBay working widgets this forum can switch to, pls?

Re: Prophet 5 vs Alesis Andromeda

I saw one going for around €400 last year Typo or not? If not, that was a no-brainer. Otherwise, I've never owned an Prophet (even though it was my first synth love), but knew two folks that owned a total of 3 P5's, and apparently all 3 of them were in the shop a lot, FWIW. That's been enough for m...

Re: Potentiometer Edition update for the Poly Evolver

Have you tried Deoxit? Echoing this. I currently own a PEK / PER combo (and used to own a MEK), all of them have the c**p encoders. Every x months or so, I just have to take a bit of time and spray/deoxit all of them to get these normal. Massive bungle on their part, but do know you can bring them ...

Electro-Harmonix Mini Synth membrane paint flaking

Amazingly, the membrane on my EH Mini Synth is fully functional (as is the rest of the synth itself) but about half of the paint has flocked off of the touch keyboard itself. Is a coat of standard acrylic paint the best choice to refinish, or will another type of paint be necessary to help it contin...
