Re: Akai S612 Quik Disk Drive Grounding Cable Purpose?

Jesus I just saw this reply! I've had no problems so far with that, but yes I agree it needs to get fixed as I'm sure it wasn't there for no reason. It would have been nice if they could have made a more elegant solution, but i bet it was a last minute fix to something that was discovered well after...

Re: Synths used in The Psychedelic Furs- Love my way?

So I'm curious too about the xylophone which I do believe from what I've read, TR did play them live. My question is listening to it, it feels like there is more than one note being played.. like a doubling.. i have a xylophone sample set that sounds good, but it sounds too singular compared to the ...

Re: DW8000 vs EX8000 EPROM compatible?

oh wow i thought it had the arp! that's serendipitous news actually. because I ended up having cold feet about it last night.. the deal was "fair" but it was basically the market value and to tie up that much money into a device like that was not wise for me because it would be something i plan on u...

Re: DW8000 vs EX8000 EPROM compatible?

yea good point.. i'm not 100% sure i still have the 07.. i traded the "older" DW awhile back so i'm down to just the one with v12.. but yea it would be nice to not have to open / remove / replace the DW if I have the 07 around somewhere.. i'll have to dig around. i know where it SHOULD be. :)

Re: DW8000 vs EX8000 EPROM compatible?

cool yes i agree, i won't tinker unless there is an actual problem. i HAD to upgrade my DW8000 Ver 07 because it had a very specific issue with not previewing sysex patch zone pushes from midiquest.. while my Ver 11 DW8000 did just fine. So yea we'll see how it goes. I get the device Wednesday night...

DW8000 vs EX8000 EPROM compatible? (resolved)

Hi everyone, I now have one final question about this that I hope someone out there might know. I am about to get an EX8000 from a guy and he did the "press 1 + 2 while powering on" to get the version number. his shows Ver 05. The latest is 12 for the DW8000. I'm 99% sure that the EX is the same har...

Re: EX8000 battery location?

Yea I'm going to do what I did with my Yamaha Rev 7 and use a 2032 battery holder that has wires.. this will allow me to mount the battery somewhere easier NEXT TIME.. :P Something like this: https://www.ebay.com/itm/5Pcs-CR2032-6V-Button-Coin-Cell-Battery-Holder-Wire-Case-Box-With-On-Off-Switch/122...

Re: EX8000 battery location?

awesome thanks for the insight. i'm going to get it serviced right away. do you know if they made the EX user repalceable or soldered on? I'm sure it's soldered on like the DW, but ugh.. I take it you have to remove that top board to get to the battery? There should be a law that requires any batter...

EX8000 battery location? (resolved)

Hi everyone, I'm about to buy a EX8000 from someone. I'm a long time DW8000 owner and just wanted to try a smaller model to save some space. It's in good shape according to the seller (local guy I'll test in person) but he never changed the battery in the last 4 years he's owned it and i believe he'...

Re: Moog MG-1 Question (LFO triggered by external?)

yea the Kitten definitely did that.. but that is unfortunate that LFO slaving wouldn't be something easier to manage.. I took it for granted that the Kitten did that assuming they all would.

Moog MG-1 Question (LFO triggered by external?)

Hi everyone, i was considering getting one of these but a big factor in knowing if this was a good buy is knowing if when i use my MIDI CV/Gate converter, will notes going in trigger the LFO? I'd like to be able to send a steady note stream which would play notes and also make the sample and hold ch...

Re: Moog Werkstatt VCO kill switch / mute?

here is a video of the end result. I should have taken photos while it was open, but honestly it's so simple, it's not needed. JMP57 has a jumper in it.. remove that and put two wires from those points to a switch. find a good place you want to mount it and boom.. i will say the one is expect to put...

Re: Moog Werkstatt VCO kill switch / mute?

Ok so I had the operation done. pin 57 appears to do the trick. When it was still disassembled I was worried because of some noise issues but i realized the adapter board wasn't screwed in which acts as a ground. there is a jumper there, removed it and put two wires to a switch. very nice indeed. So...

Re: Juno 106 showing strange behavior (resolved?)

cool yea that might explain it.. i'll keep an eye on that for sure. i moved things around i tried that but yea something might have gotten stuck.. thanks for the insight! that last point might be the best likely answer because notice the effect carries over to various patches regardless.. i realize ...
