MPG80 sliders cleaning, MKS80 lo-boost circuit?


clusterchord

Recommended Posts

-my MPG80 programmer works quite well, but few of the sliders run less smoothly, with varied resistance, making it more difficult to do nice sweeps. It's like they have dirt inside or something. Altough i've been fixing keys and pwr supplies on synths before, i have no experience with sliders.

 

How can i clean them or anyhow make them slide smoother?

 

any ideas? experiences?

 

-question for people who are familiar with Super Jupiter and DIYers: in difference from JP-6 , the MKS80 features a lo-boost circuit before the second VCA, something like a lo-shelf <200Hz.

Is it possible to bypass this circuit in any way. to make it less bass-heavy, more like jp6/8. I kind of dislike the fact that all my sounds are being coloured by default with a lo-shelving eq. I wish i could have a choice in this, like a manual switch or something.

 

I'm aware that since this is a polyphonic synth /eight voice cards/ and that it's programmable as well, complicates things quite a bit...

Maybe a Contact cleaner with inbuilt lubricant should do the trick. I think there is something callec TV tuner cleaner or something I read from a synth restorer who uses it.

 

From memory setting the Highpass filter around 43 or 47, can't remeber exactly, is about where it's bypassed as far as tone goes :)

The Junos do the same thing

thx. maybe a stupid question; but do i need to open my mpg for this, or i just use a q-tip or something thin and do it from the outside?

i did that, but its an aproximation; either you get a too thin sound placing it too high, or you set it lower , and get a bump arround 100-200Hz. Lo Shelving (<200Hz) and highpass filter can't defeat each other exactly.

 

btw, thanks for your recent submissions on the KSS demo thread. :D
