BTW, thanks a lot for the picture Micke :wink:

You're welcome, Spookyman ;-)

The black "patch panel" on top of the DS-2 sequencer is a CV and Gate switch matrix.

There's also a Minimoog, Oberheim SEM and two mini-sequencers in the background and a Paia OZ is sitting on the Polymoog.

polymoog keyboard

i own 17 polymoogs about half of each model, i find that power supply and divider board are most common faults, but when all fixed and settled down they are no different to a minimoog for working okay, some say 280a is more reliable to me its 203a.

I hope you get your Poly sorted Heath. I can imagine you making some great music with it.

17? :o Any of those unreliable 280a:s for sale? ;)

I recently sold my 280a #1279 to get the SunSyn. A trade that I do not regret per se, but I relly do miss that beautiful sound and feel.
