Stereoping pointed out some interesting mods for this VCR-looking analog drum beast. Since I like the idea of saving kits i focussed on parameters like tune and decay for real-time control. Triggering those 5 voices by my modded TR-606 with multiple outputs. Great fun! Duration: 6h. Thx for the nice documentation! http://www.stereoping.com/pearl-drx-1-drumsynth/?lang=en The Pearl DRX-1 has 5 Instruments which can be triggered by drum pads. Of course, you can also feed some trigger signals into it. All instruments have the same parameters and are therefore sounding identical, although the pitch…read more
Got this earlier version of the RE-201 in a very bad shape. After a lot of hours, it´s alive again. Replaced all pots and connections, recapped the power supply and adjusted the tape transport that caused a lot of issues. thx to Jacob Stoy who borrowed his RE-200 for troubleshooting. check out the „sound on sound“ mod! quite noisy but fun unit!!! https://youtu.be/VJ9MP76cpNM
Ripped from an Top Sound DS organ. Super nice triple bucket brigade chorus…solina style strings!!! using just 1 Roland 100m saw oscillator.
Modded this little Roland TR-909 together with Claudio of discrete-audio-solutions. All mods are switchable to „stock“ sound (except clap noise). Mods: -BD-Tune, BD-Overdrive, BD-Decay Range Extension Switch -Clap Noise Volume -Rimshot Pitch variations switch -Hihat Tune Also exchanged the eprom to the latest firmware (V4) with stable MIDI timing. Thanks to curetronic for the steady desoldering-hand:) www.discrete-audio-solutions.com www.curetronic.com http://colinfraser.com/tr909/909mods/909mods.htm
Got this baby in very bad nonworking condition. Had to replace the processor board (battery leakage) with a cloned version and to source 12 new SSM chips. It got also MIDI plus an input for using the internal chorus FX now. After cleaning its looking brand new. A nice 5k pot replacing R116 near IC31 will increase the unison detune! http://synthhacker.blogspot.de/2013/04/polysix-adding-detune.html Thx so much to Curetronic.com and Malte Rogacki for helping with the reanimation:)
Behringer Vintage Phaser VP-1 is a surprisingly good Smallstone Clone. Added stereo out and a vibe mode! Great for string machines and Rhodes!
This 80ies east german keyboard features a true 3 line BBD chorus section by the likes of solina and logan plus a 3 band eq that is accessible now via jack. Look for Mod 1-3 in section ST2. Thanks to vermona and Lutz Würker for sending the schematics. Time: 30min.
