Re: RIP MarkOne's Alesis Fusion

I took to it mean that the EFX signal was comming out as 100% wet rather than dry+EFX mix. The EFX signal would be at a lower level and seem to pass over the mute Transistor ok. I also had that on my Yamaha hard disk recorder which uses a similar circuit. I think we need more detailed info from the ...

Re: RIP MarkOne's Alesis Fusion

If this was an Alesis Micron I would say it was an output stage failure. Looking at the service manual for the Fusion it could possibly be similar. There are transistors which short the output on power up so that there is no click/whumph through your speakers. After power up the transistors disengag...

Re: TC Electronics

I suspect one of the other things in play is that for low margin stuff it just doesn't make economic sense to redesign for a different chip set. redesign for low margin gear is viable if theres the quantity to support it. When the top end gear gets redesigned using alternative components, it then c...

Re: Am I missing something or is this a joke......

I was going to quip that to replicate your 90's MIDI sequences to your synths authentically, you needed a 90's MIDI sequencer on a 90's PC. :lol: but then I thought - [TH1] 90's CAKEWALK MIDI sequencer had drivers for every MIDI interface and wrote directly to the hardware. [TH2] 2020's CAKEWALK DAW...

Not only is that very nice but your not restricted to double ball strings ?

I note you got a v.g. thumbs up from "lordasshat" - He looks like Davie504, I like his videos on Utube.

It is beautifully finished.

Re: Korg 700s FS.

I think they did those mods to stop us doing wheelies. This thread is taking some bizarre turns, I think Korg are quite keen on modding, some circuit boards like modern MS20s even have text on the circuit board to help find key signals that have been historicaly used over the years to add features....

Re: Korg 700s FS.

Not worth it at all IMO. You can get far more synth for that kind of money. It's one for collectors and those who are prepared to throw any amount of money at their nostalgia gland. :clap: :thumbup: yep. For the people that bought one as their first synth, in weekly instalments from their mums litt...

Re: Charging an iPad from Phantom Power

maybe use a lower power device like a Kindle ?

The Kindles e-ink screen is very low power if its not changing, full charge lasts about a month of use.
I have heard that there is a footswitch controlled page turner available but its not somthing Ive looked into.
