Re: AKAI AX 73 sampler input mod?

No, as I don't have an AX73, nut I have soldered up a few cables over the years and I absolutely hate DIN connectors! :twisted:

I never knew about the sampler input before you mentioned it, but it seems an interesting feature. I might have to add an AX73 to the wish list....

Re: AKAI AX 73 sampler input mod?

Here is the connector: http://www.digikey.co.uk/product-detail ... -ND/252010

The wiring is simple, except that DIN connectors, along with D-sub connectors are truly horrid things to solder.

Polysynth: Jupiter 8 - OK, I've already got a fair amount of Roland gear... But it's a Jupiter 8! Monosynth: ARP 2600 - I'll never be able to afford a real one, but I am interested in the clone project. Digital Synth: PPG Wave. Or Prophet VS. I can't decide. Workstation: Does a Fairlight count?

Re: Roland CR 78 - snare problem.

The CR-78 suffers from the same battery leakage problem as the Polysix. Leaking electrolyte can do a lot of damage in 17 years...

Re: Most Unreliable, Finicky Digital Synth?

Ok.. Plywood or Chipboard.. :-) But still.. :mrgreen: But if the synths sounds good, then (I think) it's worth to look aside from the building quality. Just put some money aside for service once and awhile. I agree. I brought a basket case Emulator II late last year. I'm part way through fixing it ...

Re: Most Unreliable, Finicky Digital Synth?

1.: Ensoniq, everything they ever made. sounds like s**t, bad building quality/components, OS with failure's. I do not know one person who have had a new ensoniq, that has'ent returned it for repair within the first 6 month. When I see one today used, I think... poor buyer... My EPS 16 Plus has nev...

Re: Ridiculous eBay 'Buy-it-now' and starting bids.

Nah, I see what he did there- "You are bidding on the PHOTOS of Roland System 100 Modules 101 and 102. If youre interested in the synthesizer contact 07522072501" He's using it as an advertisement to sell the actual synth outside eBay. Whether or not it's a scam, he's saving the ending fees. Defina...

Re: Ridiculous eBay 'Buy-it-now' and starting bids.

there has been a ton of $0.99 scam auctions the past few days. they all get shot down, just hope nobody gets ripped off outside ebay while they're still up. There was a $0.99 PPG Wave a few days ago. edit: heh, that's different though, j**ka** trying to sell photos of a synth. most of them are fake...

Re: Ever been tempted to sell a Jupiter 8 and buy EVERYTHING

I'm tempted to sell everything except my JP-6 to buy a JP-8 and a JP-4, but half of my synths are broken at the moment and even if they were in fully working order, I'd still come up a couple of £k short.

Re: Roland Sh09

Yeah, the new Moog stuff, the new EHX stuff. I'm afraid to open a magazine or visit my usual websites because more of my money will be spoken for before it even lands in the bank account. I may have to have one of those "kits only" years again. I'm with you on that! The MS20 Mini and Prophet 12 are...
