How do you ground a synth?

Recommended Posts

I have this S03 which uses a wall-wart and is not adequately grounded.

If you send it midi through the serial interface, with the volume totally down,

you can hear noise caused by the midi reception.

 

One way to fix this is to put in a couple of direct boxes on the outputs.

 

Or perhaps I can ground it better.

 

Are there any ways to attach a better ground to a synth? Preferaby not involving

dilling holes!

Direct box on the outputs. Different ones have very different flavors. I found a Manley Tube DI licked the noise problems and did wonders for the tone as well.

And cost about as much as the keyboard? :P

I've been considering this unit as a way to warm up many of my hard and soft synths.
