Moog Memorymoog Plus rebuild completed.

After considerable time rebuilding, checking and head scratching I’ve finally finished rebuilding the Memorymoog. It’s been a long journey, from a scrambled display, non working controls,  strange modulations and random crashes. It’s finally back in full working order.

Here’s a video of Fredrik giving it a quick demo.

Moog Memorymoog plus rebuild

This one is a massive task, if you read a few months back there was a post about a memorymoog. Well this is the same machine, i’ve finally got around to tackling the problem. It suffered from rotating characters on the display, weird modulation sounds, non working controls and the occasional random crash. I managed to fix everything except the crashing, so it was prudent to completely disaasemble it for a rebuild, this has taken quite a while and I’m still not finsihed with it. This is probably why i’ve been lacking in making new posts, however i’ll try to keep you up to date on the progress of this one.

Remember me?

On the workbench at the moment is a Memorymoog+. As usual it’s a little sick (why else would it be on the workbench) The first problem was that it kept blowing fuses, it had been at a friend of Fredrik’s for a while and neither of them knew why it was doing this. So I went into town to buy a pack, replaced one, powered it up and that subsequently blew also. So I took a look inside, disconnected the synth from the power board and replaced the fuse. It also blew. Next step was to disconnect the power board to see if that was causing the problem..nope! It must be the transformer I thought, which it was and now it powers up. So it was time to check out the features. Seems there’s more than a few problems with it, but I’ll keep you updated on the progress when there is any.
