True, but after what I've been through rebuilding that OB-Xa I told you about, my offer would be "How much will you pay me to haul it away for you?"synthparts wrote:Heh. yeah but someones already made an offer on it. I'm just hoping whoever buys it will buy some of my extra voice cards.
Yeah, "It powers on, and lights up." Yeah, right, so did the one where I had to resolder every connector, do a total recap 'cause half were dead/dying and the others weren't far behind, corrected at least two errors made by previous techs, undo one mod made by a previous tech that worked but was unwise, unplugging and re-seating EVERY chip, tracing signals and voltages with the scope and a can of freeze spray to find the 6 bad TL084's and 5 bad logic chips, making sure I only worked on it when the planets were in proper alignment, and trying to figure out how to appease the analog demons with a blood sacrifice without actually harming an animal (problem solved when I had to unplug that damned computer interface cable, which under pressure, popped out suddenly without warning and jammed no less than ten IC connector pins into my fingers).
So yeah, he'd have to not only pay me to haul it away, but throw in at least one good bottle of Patron...
I'd be willing to bet almost the price of that listing that something similar to the above is the VERY reason that synth is on eBay in the condition it is.
