Tuning a sequential Six Trak voice?

Post by liquidzen » Mon Aug 27, 2007 11:51 pm

Hello... I just bought a Six Trak. voices 3 and 5 are a few cents out. I can easily tune My oberheim OB8 by opening the top panel and adjusting the tuning attenuator with a screw driver. Does anyone know if the Six Trak is the same? If not, your help would be great. Thanks!!!

I assume you have done the auto-tune? Hit Control Rec and then hit 6

The MultiTrak does not and I think the SixTrak is the same in this aspect. All tuning of the voices is done by the CPU.

Get the service manual here: http://dl.analoghell.com/index.cfm?id=108&dl

And go to page 8 & ssq for the tuning procedure.

This thread should go to HELP! not in General Synthesizers.

Thanks for all the help. After following all the advise, It is now stable and in tune. I love this little synth. kinda limited, but very cool sounding. Sorry for posting in the wrong area. Cheers!!!

I know this is a very old thread but I am experiencing a very similar problem with my Six Trak.

Using the Test Routine I have identified that voice 2 is consistently tuned significantly lower than the other 5 voices however the routine only seems to describe how to identify any tuning discrepancies and not how to fix them.

Using the Record + 6 auto tune procedure I will often find the numbers racing past (indicating that the synth is already in tune) only for the problem to persist.

Any ideas?

Cecil, this was a few years ago, but did you have any luck here? I'm also a few cents out on two voices.
