Thank you...This has been unused for 20 years and before i got to this point i have replaced several tants to get it making a sound....I read that replacing the 3086 (osc board) and replacing with a 3046 is a better option.

I have not got into the osc board yet..But any thoughts on how the pulse and ringmod works will help.

The tants will get replaced... :D

A big thank you Don...Your advice made me understand the problem and it's now working again.

I replaced the 4011 and 3086 and it's all good again.

Next i want to install outputs for the vco and adsr..ect.

THANK YOU..and if i can help you with something just ask..

Just list what you are restoring and if i can help in some way...I was thinking of making it semi modular as i see quite a few modified arps.

I have just finished restoring my arp oddy mk 3.

Recapped..
Washed all boards
cleaned and lubed all pots
filter upgrade plus recap

It does sound a lot nicer for it.. :D
