Korg Polysix: repaired, midified and mod

Posted on 2014-11-11 in equipment, mods & repairs, Studio

Got this baby in very bad non working condition. Had to replace the processor board (battery leakage) with a cloned version and to source 12 new SSM chips. It got also MIDI now plus an input for using the internal chorus FX. After cleaning its looking brand new. Thx so much to Curetronic.com and Malte Rogacki for helping with the reanimation:)
