Opus 3 Issue

Post by tihosepu » Thu Jul 28, 2022 3:27 am

I have an Opus 3 with an issue. The two middle B keys sustain very long on strings/organ/brass no matter what the sustain setting is. Just those two keys. Any clues to what could be going wrong? The black foam was taken out awhile back. No other issue with my Opus.

Divide down synths use release capacitors in the divider circuitry. Sometimes these can be caps that are prone to failure such as tantalum or electrolytic caps. This is where I'd look first, identify the exact notes in the circuit and then check the capacitors.
