Why couldn't he do this to a member of the hordes of 25-key synths out there? (Hacking off the keyboard entirely)

That is absolutely hilarious. Read his post - he says that the pitch bend and mod wheels no long work, and actually posted to ask "what is going on here" - in earnest!

I understand hacking up stupid things like Casios, but this is a well built instrument that costs a fair amount of money. Did it ever occur to this idiot to sell it, buy a rack version and a MIDI controller, and have a bit of extra for new cables?

My first synth...

I'll laugh when this ends up on Ebay "for parts or not working."
