Re: Slowing down 911 eg ..possible ?

Yes..my results as well ..!

I’m pretty sure the big 10u capacitor is not the answer, it’s somewhere else.

If I get a reply from Alan I’ll post it.

Re: Slowing down 911 eg ..possible ?

I think I once tried varying the 10u cap of the 911 but the results were not very good.


I may write to Alan as I’ve been in contact before and ask him if he’s willing to give me a clue as to how they did it. Don’t forget this is the Mini Moog contour circuit not the 911 he’s modified,

Re: Slowing down 911 eg ..possible ?

Thanks for your replies .. The AJH adsr module has a switch marked as ‘slow’ which slows down the attack time making the angle of attack quite slow and this is quite a good feature. I’m not sure of the effects on the DSR section as I’m mainly interested in the slow attack and yes in reply I suppose ...

Slowing down 911 eg ..possible ?

I notice that the clone Minimoog contour envelope ADSR module, by AJH...has a simple switch that toggles from normal to slow, effecting all 4 stages. I have one of these and the effect is quite good. I wondered how this is done and if it could be transferred to a modified 911 ? Some sort of switch a...

Prodigy ...S trig ?

Doing some quick research on the Prodigy...

Main query is the keyboard controller..does it work via S trig or V trig ?
also is conversion to cv/midi straight forward via Kenton etc for
DIY ...I have a fair amount of experience. ...?

Also is there a euro clone of the prodigy ?

Re: New Module Photos

A superb effort here..an absolute goldmine of info and excellent clear and highly detailed photography.
If only this was available 25 years ago when the best information available was in rare unavailable books containing the odd blurred image at best.
Well done for all your dedicated work.

Re: Mini Mod filter .....unexpected behaviour.

The MiniMod module was fine...it didn’t have any faults.
The problem had something to do with power supply ..or power supply connector..as yet I don’t exactly know what but changing the power supply cured the problem.

Re: Mini Mod filter .....unexpected behaviour.

Thanks for your reply, it could be CV I can’t rule anything out ..
I’ve also written to AJH with the problem but could do with some experienced opinions.

Mini Mod filter .....unexpected behaviour.

Today I received the Mini Mod Mini-Moog filter module by AJH synths and have been giving it a try out. It’s brand new, all works well however there is an issue. I noticed while trying out the various functions a noticeable low “thump” associated with the Emphasis Control. I’m using an Oakley VCO (si...

Early 901b ...

Does anyone know if the early versions of the 901b were ever put into production ? I’m thinking of the July 1966 prototypes of which there’s schematics in the Moog archive. Or are most 901bs built basically using the Norlin schematics ? I know the boards vary on the early 901bs. When I visited Marti...

Re: My Grandmother is dead

I may be totally wrong but I just have a feeling that if it failed so bad after less than two weeks there could be a design or manufacture fault that needs sorting. Therefore I’ll wait and maybe repurchase in the future. I know that when ever I flick the ‘on’ switch with a Grandmother I’ll be hoping...

Re: My Grandmother is dead

Update.....

Took it back to shop...he tried all he could to bring it back to life but alas ...still dead. No output, Modulation light stuck, no sync light working...plus other things.

I’m afraid this is my first shop bought Moog and losing confidence I requested money back which was the outcome.

Yes....had it not two weeks I was playing it via a midi track and then it started to emit the sequence all on one note only. When I tried the keyboard it was dead...tried all controls and connections ..new lead ...nothing. Now there is zero output from keys or midi ....no clicks ... nothing. Everyth...
