Re: Yamaha PSR6 sustain mod?

OK, no takers. Anyone have a service manual file for the PSR-6? I can't find any online and all of the sale listings for them are old and sold.

Yamaha PSR6 sustain mod?

I play keyboard on a podcast and this keyboard has been my favorite for it. It fits with the humorous tone of the podcast, I paid $15 for it, and it weighs like three pounds. My only gripe is that it doesn't have a sustain pedal input, so for some of the recordings I've had to lug my next lightest k...

Same questions here. I am curious how often the firmware is updated, in particular.
It's been at least six months since the last update if not longer

Re: Where to find Fatar TP/9S 61?

I had such a hard time finding a replacement keybed for my Ion that I ended up finding a used 61 key board and cutting an octave off the top of the pcb (it works). I emailed fatar so many times, never got a response.

Re: Why does my synth create a ground loop?

Temps Utile - Any way to turn off screen instead of using the screensaver

I just realized that the display on my Temps Utile is getting burned in because of the screen saver; is there any way to turn the display off as opposed to having the screen saver pop up, like how it works in Hemipheres on O_c?

Maybe if the diodes are facing the wrong way, but then you'd probably run into issues with things smoking.

Re: MI Ripples - no cutoff freq control

On Ripples, IC5 (TL074) takes care of the cutoff frequency and CV controls. Check its orientation, as well as the orientation of the two diodes in that circuit (D5 and D6). If everything else works, the problem has something to do with that chip.

Re: Case Wiring, two Meanwell RT-65B

Question about dummy loads: I have the 85b and that whistles like you wouldn't believe. I want to put a dummy load on the 5v, but it goes up to 8A, does that mean I need a 40W or higher resistor? Those things are immense. And really, just from 5v to the resistor to ground?

Re: uO_c 8hp ornament and crime.

I don't think I've ever seen a Teensy soldered UNDER sockets before. Did you solder the extra pin? Er... socket? I think this is one of the ones I built recently that has an extra pin that needs to be connected from the Teensy, beyond the two rows of headers.

edit: nvm, it doesn't have one

Slew on O_c with stock firmware?

Do any of the stock firmware apps have a way to add slew/glide/portamento to a CV? I know there's a way via Hemispheres, but every time I switch over to Hemispheres I end up missing the stock apps and switch back.
