Korg Polysix repairs

Another routine repair, this time it was our Polysix in need of a little care and attention.  I replaced the power supply capacitors and gave it a full tune and calibration. While on the outside it looks very similer to the MonoPoly, internally its a completely different story.  As the name suggests the Polysix has six voices and also has patch memories. While perhaps not as fat sounding as the MonoPoly this machine still has a great sound and a lot of character.

A Snappy title brings it…

Brings what? Well we’ve been on holiday here and I’m sitting here trying to come up with a snappy title to this post. Oh well this one will have to do. So anyway, before the holidays much work had been done which wasn’t written about. First off we pretty much finished off the rebuild of the studio, there’s still a few little things to do, but that’s just details. We’ll get some pictures of the new layout up soon. Some of the jobs I worked on before the holidays included fitting a midi expansion kit to a JX3P. The kit enables the client to use the programmer and midi-in at the same time (which wasn’t possible with the stock configuration). It also converts the programmer output to midi cc’s. Another job was replacing the tact switches on the TB-303, a relatively simple one by normal standards. And finally i’ve been working on some client machines, which include an Oberheim OBX-A, Korg Polysix and a Roland SH-101.
