The MC-4 is VC isn't it? VC, by it's very nature, is going to give tighter results than MIDI ever could. But the ST, along with some old DAT machines, use specific chips in MIDI timing, which is always going to give tighter results than software timing can. I've often wondered if there are any moder...

Advanatges? I've said it before and I'll say it again: The Atari ST-series of computers has a dedicated chip for MIDI-timing, resulting in the most rock-solid timing for your instruments compared to 99% of modern computers (exceptions, I know of none, but I assume there must be some).

General circuit-bending rules:

1) Use aligator clips to test before soldering.
2) Use batteries, not a plug, and that way you can avoid a short (this is what I hear- is it true? who knows)

That's nothing to do with the software. That's because the Atari ST-range of computers have dedicated MIDI-timing chips in them, just like those you'd find in a hardware MIDI-recorder/composer or even some DAT recorders, making them have the best MIDI-timing around.

The best VST is less VST 's. No, I'm serious. I used to have my computer crammed full of VST's. I'd use some for select purposes, and others for other purposes. The problem is I never really mastered any of those VST 's and got to know them the way I know most of my hardware (though I really haven't...

Ha ha, okay, well I wasn't trying to imply you were trying to hide anything. I was actually responding just before heading out to work! Anyhow, I'll send you a PM after the new year. Thanks for the direction.

Okay, I found your list of service manuals (not in the store, I see)- but I see no prices! Given that you've got three people asking about the Juno 60 in this thread you may want to mention a price here!

Oooh... there's a couple of other goods there too...

Acutally, I'd like a copy of the Juno 60 service manual if that's possible as well. I haven't got any other service manuals though to offer in exchange, though perhaps I might have a manual or two that needs to be scanned and uploaded?

nathanscribe, thank you very much for the detailed information! I'm at work right now so I can't test it out, but I'm sure that's more than enough detail for me to work it all out. I'll post here again once I've uploaded the audio files of the MC-202 tape I mentioned earlier.

Thanks again!

nathanscribe, thanks for the information... I figured it had something to do with the " gate " function, though I'm a little confused still by what you've written. Honestly, I'm at work right now so I can't really test it out, but I'm not sure I fully see what you're saying. Any chance I could get y...

MC-202 Sequencer Questions

First of all, let me just say the Roland MC-202 is a great little synth- and I'm having alot of fun with it! Second of all, let me just say the manual for it sucks. :( Okay, so I'm needing some advice on inputting notes- or rather a lack of notes! I realize that you can turn in to a "free record mod...

Agreed. When I first got my MS-20 I often thought something may have been wrong with it that I had overlooked, but then I would realize I just needed to tweak one or two knobs in the right way! I would think that questions of this nature for any modular or sem-modular should include a picture that c...

From Kropla.com's World Electric Guide:

United Kingdom:

*Outlets typically controlled by adjacent switch. Though nominal voltage has been officially changed to 230 V, 240 V is within tolerances and commonly found.
