  1. My Siel DK 80 is not turning on even after i have the fuses replaced (the one was OK but othe was not so i replaced both with the right specs of 1.6A/250v).Used to turn on with all lights flashing and i coudnt press any button i had an arp - like sound on the phones that i could not trigger from the keys as far as i remember.So my main questions are two. What makes a synth not to turn on even if fuses are OK and how can i measure the PSU on this specific synth.I have to mention that in my effort to fix this (i have spotted a few missing pins on the grey cable on both sides on the right of the PCB) i have by ignorance connected the left ribbon cable (there are 2 cables one black on the left and one grey on the right that the mainboard is connected to things) the opposite way, a fact that caused a burn smell comming from the small PCB that the "Master volume" is connected apart from the mainboard.Obviously i burned a component there on the small PCB which i havent checked at all till now.Now the synth does not turn on at all.Any ideas ?
  2. Bad caps i have read is an issue of a blank display so will replace caps at first and see what happens. Display lcd lighting is another issue.
  3. The orchestration seems really simple, a linn drum or a oberheim DMX (since the latter was released in 1981 and the album on the same year while Linn was released in 1982 onwards) like drum loop, a pad sound probably from the rs and a lead - like sound along with vocals bathed in reverb and some piano lines here and there along with a really simple 1/8 bassline. Nice mood oldie but goldie soundscape. The lead sound sounds like nothing special just simple blend of saw/triangle osc sound so if they used a synth and not a preset i guess not even them remember what the settings where. Happened a lot in the 80s not to save their work - sound design is a serious production work - and the sounds are only stored in the recordings.
  4. All depends on you budget. I would go for yamaha piaggero series they definitely worth a listen.
  5. Hi all As i describe on the title i get a constant noise/hum and no sound on the synth at all while patch names are there. Any ideas ?
  6. Is it really worth keeping it ? i own one mint with a couple of scsi cd rom drives and all original library. I think samplers nowdays dont worth that much so either you use it or keep in in the closet, does anybody has it in use so he can tell ?
  7. Yamaha Piaggero series. Cheap and they sound more than enough.
  8. Thanks a lot i will try that as well got that synth (still the package is in the post office) with only 80 euros so i will definitely try to fix it and keep it, its an amazing value for money and a dream of my childhood synth where i used to play with it in ths official sales representative showroom back in the early 90s.
  9. Used to own both many times along with the beast DX 5 which i sold as an idiot, Mk1 has a more "old school" sound due to its 12-bit converters compared to 16-bit ones of Mk1 models (DX7II, FD, S). So it depends on what you want from a DX 7 to sound like. A then "modern" and more advanced in specs synth, nowdays is not always what you want. I prefer Mk1 definitely, for that early 80s sound. Most of the well known hits of the era used a Mk1 if that ads something to the discussion.
  10. The question is simple. Which one do you prefer and why. I tend to like more of the M1, just sounds more 80s and atmospheric. Also many hits where made with this. The 01 w although much more advanced seems it does not have the same apeal music wise.
  11. A D50 is a keeper definitely but this can be caused by a number of reasons, bad caps, Mother board issues even PSU i guess. Good luck on this one !
  12. Hi All After a long time i get back to my favourite music forum with a question, i was offered to buy a Korg 01 that although looks mint has a major issue, while it powers on the LCd lights and remains blank. Is this a motherboard issue ? any ideas would be nice.
