Something's just not right...

Post by LaxSlash1993 » Thu May 21, 2015 11:26 pm

I turn on my Memorymoog+, and I'm greeted with this on Patch 1, as well as multiple other patches.

This happened before a couple of years ago (the waveforms thing), but I wrote it off as it never happened since (until now, that is), and I just replaced the patches. Voice tuning looks like it just needs a calibration, no idea how to fix the PITCH HI thing though (that's been there for a couple of years now on Voice 6 OSC 2).

Advice?

I'd say possible PSU problem, or battery back-up, or intermittent contacts in some wire harness ? Anyway, it looks like you MM might be in need of an overhauling by a qualified tech...

Anyone near Buffalo, NY that you know of? Bucki's been MIA for God knows how long (I had it serviced by him in 2010 I think, haven't heard anything from him since)... I'd be willing to drive it maybe 3 hours at most. Shipping I'm extremely apprehensive about... would not let it touch a plane as I''ve seen how those get loaded, especially for shipping.... then again, I've seen how trucks sometimes get loaded too.

Don't know anywhere in Buffalo, but if you end up having to go further, there's a guy named Jeff Blenkinsopp at a shop called The Anlog lab (http://www.theanaloglab.com) who is fantastic. Worked on my Mini about a decade ago and was problem free until recently. Only thing is they're not cheap and they take a few weeks (I think) on most jobs. But if you have the time and money, they'll get the job done right.

That's an option. What about Cleveland, OH.... wasn't there some place around there too? I may try getting a hold of Bucki again, as well (will post if I do). I found his old number that I had written down in my service manual... hopefully it still works.
