Re: Minimoog has no keyboard

I may end up being able to source one.. In the meantime though I'm wondering that if that doesn't work out I may be able to get a cv controller built in (plugged inside rather than out). And if that doesn't work out then I may just get a little midi controller with a MIDI converter. I'm also really ...

Wanted: Minimoog Model D Hinged Prop

My Minimoog is missing the hinged prop allowing the panel to be propped up at different angles. If you have one or any leads on one, or even a similar looking/functioning idea for a substitute, let me know, I'd like to have one
Thanks :)

Re: Minimoog has no keyboard

Well... It doesn't have MIDI built in, but rather alot of extra CV jacks and controls, and extra osc. for LFO. I don't really know alot about the mods, but I'm definitely deadset on getting a keyboard put back in it, I just like for all my stuff to have keyboards in them :) Right now the boards are ...

Minimoog now has a working keyboard

Hey everybody, I just got a new to me Minimoog, and this thing is amazing, but it has no keyboard. It was a studio electronics rack mounted original Minimoog I believe, and has a case still to go with it, and I intend to make it back to original form. I have a pratt read keyboard from an old organ t...

Re: OB-Xa Problem

Problem solved- it was the DAC :D . I swapped the old one out a little while back and luckily kept it around. It unveiled a new problem, but it's all downhill from here as far as getting it back completely running. I found that the lower voice boards weren't outputting sound, even though they were w...

Re: OB-Xa Problem

The PSU is good, I rebuilt it with all new components (it was actually burnt up by a shorted tantalum on the lower control board when I got it), and keep the power rail values as they should be. I've swapped around chips where the keyboard connects to the control board (the first 74c42), and some of...

Re: OB-Xa Problem

I only resorted to condescension because I perceived the original response to be condescension. I wish I had known that you didn't mean it as just an insult, and would have not acted as I did. I'm very sorry to have wasted your time. And yes, it probably was "wtf" that got to me. Oberheim symptoms v...

Re: OB-Xa Problem

This is probably true. I guess I tried to origianally explain with less words than would be sufficient. My apologies, for my unclear explanation, and my harsh response that I now regret. To be fair though, there are many better ways to tell people that they didn't make sense. But it's a moot point. ...

Re: OB-Xa Problem

Was it the musical terms that confused you? Or was it my admittedly somewhat poorly asked question asking as to whether there may be something that supplied cv's to the separate groups of notes? Or are you just an asshole? By any means, it's not entirely necessary to insult people you don't know, bu...

OB-Xa Problem

My OB-Xa has a really unusual problem it has developed recently. Starting with C and playing whole tones, every note is very sharp, and sometimes distorted, regardless of which voice card is being used. The other 6 notes play fine, in tune and without distortion. This is true across the entire keybo...

Oberheim OB-Xa Momentary switches

My manual and LFO sine switches both quit on the same night. Does this sound like a multiplexer or IC type problem, or just an old fashion switch problem? Does anybody know a way to test the switches, or just have an idea what might be happening? I've fixed pots by switching 4000 series chips on the...

Re: oberheim ob-8 skipping voices

My OB-Xa did this because of a bad chip in the s&h circuit for the autotune circuit, I believe it was a tl084. I don't know how similar they are, but the circuit was on the bottom right of the bottom board for my later era OB-Xa.

Re: Synths that didn't impress you

The Moog Source
The sound was just way smoother and cleaner than what I expected, especially compared to the Prodigy's roughness. I also don't quite get along with the touch panel/data wheel. One more thing was that the parameters just didn't seem wide enough.
