Easel AUX Expander mod freq issue

Post by triplizard » Sat Oct 05, 2019 4:01 pm

Hey there. I hadn't used my AUX Expander for like a year for whatever reason. I plugged it in last night and when the OSC is in audio (high) range I can't seem to change the frequency. E.g. turning the freq knob does nothing and I tried the three source options and can't seem to impact it: it just produces a steady note at the audio out. When I have it in low range it seems to work fine (knob adjusts the frequency and I can impact it with the CV input, sequencer and pressure).

I'm by no means an expert so I'm wondering if there's some stupid thing I might just be overlooking before assuming it's busted. I tried toying with everything I could think of but nothing seems to have any impact.

what note is it playing / is the "kybd bus" light on? just wondering if for whatever reason its "stuck" in the tuning position, its a 3 position switch right? Bottom(LFO)/middle(tune)/top(high frequency).. maybe the switch is broken.

Thanks for the reply. So I’m an idiot - the range switch wasn’t all the way up so it was indeed in tuning mode. Ignore me - I’ll go back to lurking.

Nice move coming back on here to clear things up. I'm sure it will one day be of help to someone else.
