Re: Project PRO2021 - A Pro-One keyboard synth

Managed to bend back the deformed part of my top case (one of the end flanges), and Synthcube are sending me a new keybed, so all good! Haven't had a chance to check the hardware, but I think everything is there. My keyboard cable is short though.

Re: Project PRO2021 - A Pro-One keyboard synth

Mine has arrived. Looks great, but sadly USPS/Parcelforce don't seem to have treated it well - keybed and top case damaged, despite good packaging. :waah:

Re: a legend is back...System-700 in eurorack

All I know is the sequencer has been delayed :waah: - my other modules are on the way though. Need to get around to building the cases, and find out just how bad I am at putting on Tolex. In the meantime, I've been building an SSL compressor clone.

Re: Universal AC/AC power supply, does that even exist?

They don't exist. Universal AC-DC power supplies are invariably switch mode, but AC-AC types are just a transformer - if you double the input, you'll get double the output, and possibly blow them up in the process. It wouldn't be difficult to build one with dual primaries and a voltage selector swit...

Re: Project PRO2021 - A Pro-One keyboard synth

So Synthcube tells me they have 100% of the materials in the shop now and have just been a bit slow to get the kits put together. I'll ask them to post on here too. Hopefully we are really close. Thanks for everyone's patience here! :hail: Thanks again! That’s my exact problem with the chassis lol....

Re: Project PRO2021 - A Pro-One keyboard synth

I pre-ordered and paid the balance the day I was invoiced - 22 November... Was hoping to have something to build over Christmas. As for the MME, I've been attempting to design the sheet metal parts in Freecad, but spend more time looking at tutorials than anything else! :bang:

Re: Project PRO2021 - A Pro-One keyboard synth

Just wondered if anyone who pre ordered the Synthcube kit had got theirs yet? I'm desperate for something to build.... Should finish my MME, but that means wood/metal work so I've been putting it off.

Re: a legend is back...System-700 in eurorack

Nice! I would love to see pics of your finished project. I added a few 'non-Pharmasonic' modules to my system to round it out a little, but it is otherwise pretty 'pure.' I have a 4MS Row Power 40 powering the case, a Hexinverter Electronique Mutant Brain for MIDI to CV and gate conversion, a 4MS S...

I could NOT pass up the chance to own a System 700, though. :love:
Exactly this. I've ordered PCBs and panels for a near enough block 1 clone. Now looking at rails and designing a case.

Roland D-50 M-EX battery

Anyone with an M-EX board in their D-50/D-550 know where to get a replacement battery? It is a CR2450 coin cell, but the opposite polarity to any modern coin cell I've ever seen. Like an old mercury cell, but it is 3V lithium. I've been through a lot of datasheets and found nothing. Googling the thr...

I would like to stress once again that it is not enough to assemble the PCBs. Then you don't have a Jp8 yet. I can't support you on the subject of housings. In addition, many cables have to be crimped, which is the worst :-( I agree with you there. I despise crimping! Depending on the pitch of the ...

After a a google I found their site - pricey, though they look unique and excellent in construction. What I couldn't find was how you you get wheels as an option except by purchasing 6 tiers. I like this unit - it looks like it doesn't take up much space. I guess it is more designed for studio use(...

(the Jasper's rack), though the JP-6 is out of its flight case for the first time in years I've just resurrected the DX7 - had to replace the muting relay.

Impressed with the rack. I might have to get a second one.

Not synths, but the Yamaha SPX series are fairly notorious, Early switch modes, but run hot and fail. It's not just the caps that die either - my SPX900 has a dead transformer.

The early models did have a plastic overlay on the front panel. 90s models (D/SX, D/SE) started using a metal front panel. My only guess is that the previous owner just preferred the look of the old panel so they stuck it on there. Still a bit weird. Whatever ICs are in there, the easiest way to fi...
