Repair advice; Jupiter 8 and Emax

Post by nsputnik » Sun Dec 24, 2006 4:48 am

I have had a Jupiter 8 for about 10 years. One of the previous owners tried to mod it, I have not been able to figure out what the mod was for. There were two jacks added to the back and a couple switches. Maybe route through the filter? I don't really care for that. However (and I am not sure if it is related) it does not store patches. I have been using it in manual mode and will occasionally load the factory patches from tape (or an audio file). Roland had it for 3 months and could not figure out how to fix it.

On my E-Max, I have a bad channel/voice. It distorts. In the special mode I was able to mute voice 3 to make the problem go away.

Does any one know of any one that can fix these or if they are repairable?

thanks.
