Mother-32 Key Tracking/ Tuning Problem!!

Postby jonscores » Thu Jan 10, 2019 9:29 pm

Hi Everyone,

I recently purchased a used Mother-32 off of Reverb. When I plugged it in and started using it, I noticed that it seemed like the Oscillator wasn't tracking properly across the keyboard.
When I press the C key, it plays a slightly out of tune B# and as I travel up or down, the notes don't track properly and it gets wildly out of tune. The sound is honestly hard to describe so I've attached a link to the video. https://youtu.be/SQnKAzpVv9A
If anyone can help me solve this that would incredible.

Since I live in Los Angeles, there aren't a ton of synth shops that work on Moog's affordably.
And I really don't want to ship it out to the Moog factory North Carolina as its no longer under Warranty.
I'd hate to have to return it and find another one.

Thanks guys!
