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.
Duration 6h for Mods + OS update: 300€ +Parts (EPROM) and postage (german clients +19%) Modded this little Roland TR-909 together with Claudio of discrete-audio-solutions back in the days. 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.
Knock on wood:) Rumburack Knit Rider triggers vintage Roland Drummachine with inverted positive triggers using Quattro Figaro. Clock out was used to sync to TR-77 preset rhythms. Mods by Jacob Korn. www.bastl-instruments.com
