Re: 1975 minimoog power supply issue

The Minimoog power supply is a Kelvin system. Each rail has force/sense lines. They must be terminated for the supply to function. If' your oscillator board isn't plugged in, the power supply won't work because that's where the force/sense lines terminate. The force line is an output source, the sen...

Everyones on gearslutz, not facebook.
I left gearslutz years ago, long before it became behringerslutz. I do not approve of the moderators on the synth section.

My preferred places are Analogue Heaven, Music Player Keyboard Corner, MW, and Facebook.

Re: do the Moog One knob values "jump" when you move them, after loading a patch?

On all my hybrid synths (Voyager RME, Andromeda, Minitaur), I have to set them to pass thru when I gig with high volume PA. The vibrations from the PA can actually cause the wipers on the pots to move and the instrument will go into "self edit" thinking that the user moved a pot. Yikes! You might w...

Re: Minitaur does not reset its MIDI channel to match the channel being sent

If all four buttons continue to blink then it isn't receiving any MIDI messages. You could have a bad MIDI cable, try another one.

Re: Voyager transposing issue

Voyager does have device ID parameter for sysex, but that won't solve the problem.

The best way to solve the problem is a MIDI filter on the output of the computer.

Re: Prodigy release trouble

Two different schematics out there and they both have different component designators.

The one service manual out there refers to only one of them. If you attempt to read the text describing designators while following the wrong schematic, your head will spin!

Re: what are the pitfalls of owming a memorymoog?

"Cost prohibitive" is a matter of perspective. While they can be expensive to maintain, they can sound GREAT. You have to decide if the price of admission is worth it. They CAN be overhauled to be very stable and stay in tune, but it is a lot of work. Not recommended for the novice DIYer. As long as...

Re: Sirin Circuit Board = Old Minitaur Stock?

The Sirin has expanded frequency range in the oscillators. Due to the inherent hardware limits of linear v/hz oscillators used in the Minitaur/Sirin, you can't expand the range with software. Since you can't expand the range without changing hardware components, it is highly unlikely they are old Mi...

Re: red connector with the 2 open holes on back of my modified minimoog

I don't think you are going to find a mating plug for that. Very likely that the safety agency of the country (IE UL in the US) has deemed it unacceptable for high voltage AC power. I can see safety/fire hazards with that type of interconnect. Just have it replaced with an IEC socket, that is a quic...

Re: New Look/Same forum?

I like it, but does anybody find it ironic that the color scheme resembles an ARP synth?
