Re: Some keys zone don't sound. ALESIS QS 6.2

I own an ALESIS QS6.2 which some keys don't work. It's very weird because is only some zones that don't work properly. From C1-E2 works ok, and from E3 to B3 too. Before I repaired many synth keys, but the ones that didn't make any sound were randomly. It's probably an issue with the keyscanning ma...

Re: Ensoniq EPS Floppy drive simulator

I'm currently talking with a guy here in Denmark who has a GoTek drive for sale, and he confirmed that this is working with the EPS, so I'll probably go with that. It has to either have HxC or FlashFloppy installed to work properly with Ensoniq. HxC is the better option for Ensoniq because FlashFlo...

Re: Korg Electribe S (ES-1) Firmware and Factory Sounds

Will the MKII firmware on plastic face allow to use different effects per part? I found this on youtube and I don't know how this guy make it work Like most other samplers of the era with only one FX processor (such as EPS16, ASR, and SampleTrak): Resample. Once you "print" the effect to a recorded...

Re: MS2000B Some buttons stopped working

Today some buttons stopped working at the same time: "bank 3" , "bank 12", "+Yes" , "Write", "On/off arpegiator" and “octave down” Can't tell you the exact solution for the MS2000B, but it sounds like one row or column of the key matrix isn't working. It's very likely that there is an 8-wire connec...

I have a Korg RK-100 where the top few notes are all acting the same. Can someone help me find the keyboard assembly so I can do a drop in replacement?
What is the exact key range exhibiting this problem?

I managed to get the 1.3 chip
but bean still sounds much better version 2.1
Are you in a position to post the ROM binary? It would be very welcome.

And I agree that the bean has always sounded better, but that's a matter of taste, I suppose.

My suspicion is that the processor is not getting valid boot instructions from the EPROM and then goes quit.
Dump the ROMs and verify the checksums.

Re: Kawai K3 Keys Dead?

If it is the channel/voice out, how can it be solved/repaired? I'm going to take a bit of a "shot in the dark" on this one and say that I would start with the SSM2044 chips. My general theory would be that they are in sockets, so if you remove all six of the SSM2044 chips then none of the voices sh...

Re: Gotek and FlashFloppy E34 error

I've just started playing around with a gotek for Amiga and received the F-F error. "F-F" isn't exactly an error. It usually means there's no USB drive connected. Double-check that the USB drive works by reading it in a computer. Make sure it's a FAT formatted volume. It's not unheard of for USB dr...
