My buddy bought a Kaosillator when it was released, only messed around a little bit with it... seemed like a fun toy that has some pretty decent applications when you get into it. I'll have to have him let me play with it more ;) Checked out that AcidLab stuff, very cool, emailed them about pricing....

What do you think the investment money/timewise would be to source one of these? Is it realistic? I feel left out, I just found out about the x0x a year or two too late ;) But, I wouldn't mind sourcing one as long as I knew it could be done and wouldn't end up being parts sitting around never to be ...

UPDATE (if anyone cares ;)): I opened the K-Station up and cleaned it out. When I first closed it something was a bit messed up as the LFO select switch triggered program change (???) but this was quickly remedied (hopefully) by reopening and making sure a little foam piece was snug. The pots are sh...

303/Acid style synths: Cheapest, best etc..

So I went to see Iron Man (amazing) yesterday and all the circular imagery got me thinking about a Future Retro Revolution. Not sure if I want to shell out the $700 bucks just yet for one, although it appears a fairly popular synth among you guys. So following my train of thought, this got me thinki...

I contacted Novation and they gave me the website of their distributor for parts and repair stuff in the US, ( American Music & Sound . Called and left two messages at two different numbers the other day, no one is returning calls so looks like I'll have to call again tomorrow. The guy I talked to a...

K-Station - 'pot drift' or 'ghost parameters'...

I recently got hold of a used K-Station. It's in good shape and I haven't been having any problems until... The noise/ring mod/external input parameter seems to be drifting randomly during play. Usually when I turn them all down to "0" they won't drift but anytime I have them past "0" they jump up a...

Did the whole battery replacement thing, loaded sounds, etc. Seems that wasn't the problem as its still acting funky.

Assigned the Poly800 to the lower shelf in the workshop and marked it "to be continued..."

Thanks a million for the help guys!!

Thanks guys! Opened it up earlier tonight, was fairly dusty inside so cleaned a little bit and unsoldered the battery which was a bit corroded. Gonna run to Rat Shanty tomorrow and see if I can find the right battery holder so I don't gotta wait for Mouser... The Poly 800 I picked up is a "I" but I ...

the 800s cpu acts really weird when the voltage gets wacky. the best thing to do is remove all the batteries, wait a while (a good hour or two), put them back in (use new ones) and reload the memory. . How do I reload the memory? EDIT: After googling briefly it looks like the Poly800 I which is the...

I have no idea about what gear was used, but did anyone else notice how many people ripped off the terrible "duh duh duh duh... mortal kombat!" sound when this came out? It was like some kind of synth-cliche-virus and spread throughout subpar pop-techno. There was a metal band around here that got s...

I just got a K-Station so I was doing some intense googling while waiting for it to arrive. I came across something somewhere that reads the new OS does indeed eliminate the issues people were having with clicks. I haven't updated mine yet, as the clicks don't seem too serious, but I guess the new O...

Busted Poly 800

So I was out picking up a semi-working Korg DDM-110 (Super DrumS!) that I won on eBizzle earlier today and ran across a Poly 800 hidden amongst several Casio crap-classicks and Yamaha PSS (or POS :P). I asked guy if it was working and he said it was... until... "I was jamming out on it, and accident...
