I'll shift it over to 'Help', where it can be stickied, along with the techs sticky.
I didn't get where I am today by posting on internet forums.

synthparts.com is also an invaluable source.

i've used the above posted link a few times for some missing fader caps and such! pretty good service and very nice guy.

Another guy I've dealt with, Bob Wiegel [I do believe that's the proper spelling] from Sound Doctorin'

http://cu.imt.net/~sounddoctorin/

Great service, great prices! Recommended if you need pratt-reed bushings, by far the best price although you need to silicon lube them yourselves!

Great thread to have stickied!

organservice.com, P-R bushings for 37¢. drillspot.com (grainger) DC#7 lube for said bushings.

i've bought repro slider caps, replacement sliders and pots for my Jupiter-6, Opus 3 from Technology Transplant a/k/a chipforbrains on eBay. stuff is shipped from Hong Kong but they were quality parts.

MIDI to DIN SYNC converter

Post by space6oy » Thu Apr 24, 2008 7:23 pm

i'd been digging around for a while for a MIDI to DIN SYNC converter to be able to slave my TR-808 to gear that doesn't have a DIN SYNC out. there are several options out there, but the one i went with i am thrilled by. guy in australia is making them, they're simply an adapter that attaches to a midi cable, plus they don't even need a power supply!

right now he's only sold 3 on ebay and doesn't have any more up for sale, but i'm sure he'll keep at it. drop him a line if you're interested!

I would add chips for brains in there too, as they are remaking a lot of parts for vintage synths now, except processors.
