Re: FOUND IT! Oberheim DMX Cowbell voice card

Glad I could be of help :) Does your DMX have the old style/short toms (e.g. "Blue monday" by New order and "Rockit" by Herbie Hancock) or the new style/long toms? Mine's a later DMX with factory fitted MIDI and the newer sounds (i.e. the toms are marked "DX toms" on the EPROMs) but I'd like the ol...

Re: JX-3P doesn't boot up / power supply issues?

Yeah it's a PSU issue then; all the digital stuff is entirely reliant on the 5V supply. The 5V & 7V supplies are separate from the +/15V supply and just uses a standard 7805 voltage regulator. Replace that and I reckon you''l be good. Just placed an order on Amazon for the 7805...Sucks that Radio S...

Thanks! Just ordered it.

Using the spare card to put another EPROM on in the future (the card contains a stock voice).

Re: JX-3P doesn't boot up

Doesn't look like it's a boot up problem. Looks more like an audio output problem. Get service manual, etc. Forgot to mention - all of the front panel buttons, except for LFO Trigger, are non-responsive. Doesn't receive or transmit MIDI. On the oscilloscope, no response from pin 30 or 9 on the CPU....

Re: JX-3P doesn't boot up

All the connections seem to be sound.

I have an oscilloscope, but it's at my workplace...Good thing they gave everyone a key.

JX-3P saw volume / panel / bender issues

Foolishly, I'm taking on another project... A JX-3P, advertised as "doesn't power on", pretty cheap. What I found out is that it means "doesn't boot up". LFO trigger lights up when pressed, volume and brilliance seem to work (or at least the quiet background noise gets brighter and darker and quiete...

Must... Buy.... Synths......
It's compelling me too! I'm going to be going on a little road trip to buy a broken JX-3P on the cheap.

Re: Roland JX3P and PWM

After watching the SQ-80 demo of PWM by sync, I stand corrected. It still takes up an oscillator, so you can't do PWM + detuned saw unless you have a third oscillator. On the JX, it's best to just use detuned saws if the end result you want is a rich pad. Incidentally, now I'm kicking myself for sel...

Re: Attaching aftertouch strip - what kind of double-sided t

I'm not sure its double sided. The Mounting Adhesive Tape looks more useful to your application. The more pressure you put down, the more permanent the bond. Similar to the Peel-N-Stick sheets I've been using. Be sure to test any product first. I looked at the SuperTape again, and it's also double-...

Re: Attaching aftertouch strip - what kind of double-sided t

I used to do picture framing professionally. Whatever products you end up using, they are usually pressure-sensitive so press 'em down hard as you can. Give the 3m products a look and be sure to test anything before putting it to use. I trust my sticky needs to Therm O Web Peel N Stick . Designed f...

Re: Again: Juno or Polysix?

I notice your sig - did you sell off a lot of stuff?


Back on topic, the post about the Polysix frequency response mod has me interested in hearing a comparison of the Juno-60 and the modded Polysix somehow. Unmodded, the Juno-60 has the highs the Polysix lacks so it wins for me there.

Attaching aftertouch strip - what kind of double-sided tape?

I finally sourced an aftertouch strip for my Alpha Juno. It wasn't the original Roland one, but I plugged it in and squeezed it, and it responded just the same.

It says I need double-sided tape to attach it. What kind of double-sided tape do I use?

WTB Juno-60 front panel

I now have a Juno-60 that, although it's in great working order, is in well-worn physical condition. I could use a not-ugly front panel . There is nothing functionally wrong with the instrument aside from occasionally scratchy pots, so I'm hesitant to send it out to a service to get it refinished. E...
