I am no electronics expert, just a hobbyist, and it is a VERY complex circuit. Lots of room for error!
This sentence prooves that you are delicate and humble person.
But .... for hobbyist ... this is definitely very tough project.
You're surely near pro level.
Just a "Monkey see, monkey do" method doesn't provide such a phenomenal output.
Great job !
It's funny, because I also transfered the whole service manual to Kicad, and planned to do a clone.
But not so soon, right now there's no gas to fund such an ambitious project like this.
I have a plan to build clones of some of my favorite vintage synths.
Sounds crazy, but ... it's fun and ... taking to a count the cost of original ones, it seems very reasonable.
When I had some question regarding DMUX board connector I decided to google the hi res picture of DMUX board
and seems like I've found your blog.
And realized, that ... I'm not the only one, in a good sense )
My main question is ... shall your project become open source for other DIYers ?
This topic is a great source of inspiration and motivation.
I'm sure your MM will perform outstanding and definitely won't suffer from original issues that much.
As far as I understood you have no plan yet to MIDIfy your unit ?
DO NOT go the path of plus version... Sluggish 16th note perfomance guaranteed.
I had a chance to rent a PLUS version for a studio session once, it was awful ;(
The only paths are LAMM or Kenton. Expensive, but worth it I guess.
