Hi Everyone, I got this Model D Mini and wanted to find out what the possible modifications could be that were done to this unit. I labelled the ones i could figure out but there are a few that I cant seem to trace.
Maybe you have an idea? Please see the photo below:
Thanks! -K

Hello and welcome kuenala !

Since these mods are custom made, like on all Minimoog D, your guess is as good as mine.
The best way to find out, is to open the back panel, and follow the wires.

Here's the one done on mine, can you figure out what those switches do just by looking at them ? Good luck. Of course since I did it myself, I know what they do. :mrgreen:

Yeah, follow the wires inside or try measuring voltages when cables are plugged in on the other end and try to move pots and buttons on the front panel.
The last option might be, let a friend do all this and seek shelter under your bed or so.... :lol:
It`s just like asking all the people here about the colour of the underwear of you grandmother she`s wearing day by day to find out only from viewing what`s all about that stuff.
But at any rate I believe the toggles are on/off switches and from the jacks, there`re only voltages that come out. I think you won`t do anything wrong by experimenting to and fro........ a voltage is a voltage is a voltage.......

I'll keep that in mind the next time my kid sticks a knife in an AC outlet. :wink:

First, tell your kids about the difference between DC and AC and where to find, then the high danger (or less danger) between voltage and ampere,
and at last never to use knives, but only tomahawks..........they`re too big for any outlet.... :wink:
