Help a brother out

Post by Maschinengeist » Sun Aug 17, 2008 5:16 am

Help a brother out.

For a limited time, I'm making my collection of service manuals & schematics available to the public. Send in a donation (Paypal prefered) and get one title.

The list is here

I know, some will say they are some already available as free download on some websites. I know that. The difference is that mine are often of better quality (where you can't hardly read anything) complete (no missing pages). Besides, I save you the search (which can be long and frustrating). I rarely download anything from websites because I grew tired to often get badly scanned documents and that were often missing pages (because the guy thought they weren't important).

I'm cheaper than Manual Manor, Transanalog, Schematics Connection, Music Parts, etc.

I've got a large collection. And best of all, I add new documents on a regular basis (I buy & trade a lot). I'm always seeking out the best quality documents so I "upgrade" my collection frequently.

This won't last forever because I hate to ask for charity. But I've been sick for over a month now with no incomes. You imagine the rest.

For a limited time only.

... I'm not forcing anyone, I'm just offering what I have. And I'm planning to add more to the list as soon as the money will permit. I might also get you service manuals/schematics not currently on my list (I'm in touch with some synth techs from around the world). Help me and I'll help you.

Thank you

After a weekend hunting down a Moog source service manual I realized that there's no central source for Source information. So I posted what I found here at http://members.tripod.com/redchapterjub ... ource.html. Factory patches, manuals, schematics, etc.

IMPORTANT NOTE:

Lately a well-known reseller (don't ask, I won't tell) contacted me for manual trade. I should have investigated first... even though the guy contacted from his personal address and not the domain address of his reselling website. I sometimes run an investigation when I smell the fish but I must have been too tired that day to do so.

I often trade with techs, all around the world: BECAUSE WE ALL NEED THOSE DOCUMENTS TO SERVICE OUR CUSTOMERS' GEAR. And we don't care if there are markings or not on our documents: can we read the schematics clearly? Yeah? good enough. If you need prestine copies, you obviously are a reseller!!! A tech wouldn't care if, for exemple, the front page is full of flux residues or if there are notes in the margin: he just need the technical data and he has no intention to laminate the pages and redecorate his repairshop.

I DO NOT TRADE WITH RESELLERS BUT WITH PEOPLE REALLY INTERESTED AT REPAIRING THEIR SYNTH. GO WASTE SOMEBODY ELSE'S TIME. DO LIKE ME AND BUYTHE DAMN MANUALS YOU ARE SELLING ON YOUR WEBSITE!!!

I don't sell at gold price, I accept donations to help my business out. I had to put an amount because there is always a genius who wants to send $1 for a manual I bought $35. The money I get is for financing projects and all, not for my own profit. Food for thoughts...

Resellers, you make money then buy your own! Unlike you, I don't sell user manuals available as free download on the manufacturers' website or maybe you will tell me that you scanned them? Some do and they are respected for that because they make available some rather obscure documents. No need to name names...

Don't get confused, I respect resellers because sometimes it's the only way to get some precious documents. And I use their service and thank them for their work. And there are the leeches... who want everything because they are too cheapass to buy their copies and will waste your valuable time with futility.

I take note of those ressellers. Not only I will avoid them but will not make any publity for their service. Don't waste your dollars on bozos, buy from those who bring the real goods to you... and who are able to assist you regarding those documents. The leeches just suck documents from every places just to resell them at a unjustified price. Stand up and protest guys: those guys are there only to suck you off. You can tell those who are there for the musicians and those who are there to make a quick buck on you.

A rather disgruntled tech

In order to be fair with everyone, I've just lowered the suggested donation amounts. And remember, the currency is CAD (Canadian Dollar) nor USD (though also accepted), so it makes the manuals even lower. Please consult conversion websites like: http://www.XE.com. The Canadian Dollar is actually lower than the US Dollar.

Changes are immediately effective.

My list is here: Image
