Re: Razmo's Gear rambling thread

Amazed at your endurance :) Thanks Chris :) ... It's a passion I guess... it's painstaking to have to keep old gear up and running... also had to purchase a clone filter chip for my old Roland MKS-30 recently... just waiting for it in the mail soon. It's just something you have to have... endurance...

Re: Razmo's Gear rambling thread

Finaly! I've located the culprit on the String Ensemble of my Eminent 310U. It was a malfunctioning capacitor on the faulty string ensemble modulator board. I found it by simply swapping the capacitors from a modulator board that works until I found the faulty component. Unfortunately the caps were ...

Re: Razmo's Gear rambling thread

Have you ever made your own box? I know there are gadgets to do almost anything already but I wonder if there are still some new sounds to find. Maybe something just to randomly change the timbre of the input or something. May help samples sound less identical. Yes... sometimes I've thought about i...

Re: Razmo's Gear rambling thread

Have been testing out my "new" Electro Harmonix guitar pedal... the Deluxe Electric Mistress. It's an analog flanger pedal that Jarre used (an earlier version though) on his probably most famous piece to date; Oxygene part 4. He used it with a very rare RMI Harmonic Synthesizer, and I've been trying...

Re: Razmo's Gear rambling thread

Just found out that the ensemble modulator boards in my Eminent actualy do have chips on them... I did not see it because the BBD chips are so old that they have round metallic casings looking more like a large transistor with lots of legs. I also found out which modulator tht has the fault, and It'...

Re: Razmo's Gear rambling thread

Oh, and if you need the schematics of the 310, there's a PDF available at http://www.eminent310.nl/ Thanks Marcel, but actualy Eminent put a copy of the schematics inside the organs they produced... of course it may have been removed on some organs, but mine was intact inside my organ, so I've got ...

Re: Razmo's Gear rambling thread

" But I know what they think these days and in one respect it's good - keep it more affordable and nobody worries if it breaks sooner." I don't find this to be good really... it's not a nice policy when it comes to our environment, that everything has to be cheap, and thrown away so fast... but it's...

Re: Razmo's Gear rambling thread

Thanks for that link Marcel :) very helpful if I need something... though, I do not believe that the Eminent use those BBD chips... I think that was the Solina... The Eminent has 6 curcuit modulator boards inside, and three of these are used with the Ensemble FX, the other three is used by the Orbit...

Re: Razmo's Gear rambling thread

Well thank heaven you can fix it Razmo, otherwise it would be one more for the refuse tip I suppose. I also suppose if the equipment isn't used much then the bits inside it are more likely to last a while longer. My 1975 Electone is still fine and the only thing wrong with my Hammond (also around t...

Re: Razmo's Gear rambling thread

Colour me impressed. Didn't Marcel D. have this setup as well to use on Sidologie? Marcel? Chris Indeed, I did. It cost me a plant. It belonged to an elderly lady who didn't want any money for the Eminent as she gained so much space in her living room :D She and her husband were the first owners fr...

Re: Razmo's Gear rambling thread

Anyways.. just found out last night, that there is a severe PSU problem with the Eminent... it started making loud "popping noises" at some point, and now does this after a while when turned on. I found a dammaged resistor on the power supply to confirm my suspicion, so I've ordered some new ones fo...

Re: Razmo's Gear rambling thread

Surely yes... it would be hard to get that swooshing sound without exactly the EH Smallstone Phaser pedal... there really is nothing quite like it. But I'm uncertain if it was the 310U or the Yamaha CS-80 he was talking about back then... guess we'll just have to wait until he might read this thread...

Re: Razmo's Gear rambling thread

Allright... if you wanna know why I've got this organ, you'll know when you hear this clip :D :
Just the Eminent run through an EH Smallstone Phaser v.1 and some added echo... this is probably the Jarre signature sound...
