Re: Marxophone samples?

I don't know if that suits your needs, but googling 'marxophone' quickly led me here (Marxophone for Kontakt).

Re: Synths and You (the collection of opinions)

1) The synth that made you want to play music: None. I had already played music (mainly guitar, plus some trombone) for about 17 or 18 years when I bought my first synth since I had the impression (which proved correct ;)) that some of of our guitar based rock band songs could do well with addition...

Re: Yamaha PS-20 down pitched, how to fix it :()

So I bought this old keyboard Yamaha PS-20 few days ago and it seems to be out of tune. Like all the keys are down pitched exactly 1 3/4 whole steps down. No idea how to fix this. Does it have a (rather wide range) master tune function? One that can be or possibly was used by the previous owner to ...

Re: Korg poly 800 sequencer question

Be aware though that the Kawai needs a 10 V (really unusual!) wall wart. Mine happily works with 9V. I'm afraid that this 10V is just to make you buy Kawai power supply ;) :lol: I asked Kawai customer service, and they told me it probably wouldn't. So I converted a 12 V into a 10 V wall wart using ...

Re: Juno 60 mains lead modification (maybe )

The cable fits , it's the plug that's the dangerous bit. Sure, that's exactly why I added a cable compartment that also provides enough space for the plug. The synth cannot move inside the case (note the two 'corners' in the back that hold the synth in place!), and thus doesn't get damaged by the p...

Re: Juno 60 mains lead modification (maybe )

Why not transport the synth in a suitable case that allows putting the cable in properly?
Extra bonus: Protection for the synth in case of a pothole, of if you have to brake hard ;).

Like this:

This is my self-built custom case for my DX21.

Re: Korg poly 800 sequencer question

Ah so it's the gate time that can sometimes be the answer....is there any other synth of that time that could offer me A sequencer with which I could vary the gate time, I am trying to keep things hardware and original to that era. Perhaps just use an external sequencer? Either a vintage MIDI seque...

Good advice, imho. But, considering

... perhaps better let a technician take a look at the power supply (and if that turns out not to be the problem, at the rest of the unit ;)).

1 A is sufficient. It says so on page 81 (printed page no.) ("Specifications") of the manual I just sent to you ;).

Re: Need info!!! Brother PDC100 Sequencer

Yes, it indeed uses a 7.5 wall wart. Should be easily available through Ebay (check the polarity though).

Dou you have the manual? If not, pm me. I can send you a PDF if you need it :).
