Pearl DRX-1 tune + decay mod triggered by TR-606 (poor man´s Syncussion)

Posted by in equipment, mods & repairs, News, Studio

Duration 6h for Mods: 300€ + parts (knobs+housing) + postage (german clients + 19% tax) 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! 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.

Korg Polysix repair+mod+MIDI

Posted by in mods & repairs, News

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:)
