Share your pdf-manuals/jpg-synth-ads etc.

Post by konvert » Fri Aug 24, 2007 7:21 am

Hieyeyall.

I've been slowly collecting manuals for different synths/effects, mainly just for fun and for possible future use for myself and others of course.

If you feel like contributing, I'd be happy to receive all kinds of manuals (in electronic format) and synth-ads (electronic format also)!

What I've got at the moment, can be seen here:

http://konvert.net/manuals

This is by no means meant to be complete manualbase but it's nice to have few manuals lying around in case somebody has lost his/her own and needs to find it.

so, if you felt a sparkle in your heart:

Also, some simple synth-demos can be found here:

:D That's a great idea, there's too many rip-off sites charging for pdf's and print outs of old manuals. Well done! I'm sure I've got a few manuals that I can contribute...

Though you can get any Roland or Yamaha manual for free from their respective websites.

Careful not to violate any copyrights by doing so.

I've seen people on other forums get themselves into legal trouble by doing something similar. Even if the company or product no longer exists they could have sold the right to reproduce the manuals to someone else.

Yes, that occurred to me also. Though let's say I'm feeling reckless and anarchist so I'll take the plunge. I just can't see some company owning the rights for some manual taking the steps pursuing legal actions against me.
If that happens, well, too bad for me.
It's not like I'm compiling huge database of expensive stuff or anything. Mainly for the joy of COLLECTING :lol:
I collect, therefore I am.

The good thing about these forums is sharing information.

Roland have always been very helpful to me with schematics.

I have collected many manuals and schematics over the years and would share this information at no cost.

It's the right thing to do.... :D

BTW...This is not an attack on anyone selling pdf's...If people want to buy it's their choice.....I don't give a monkeys..... :D
