VCS3 repairs and modifications

Post by Littlem4tt » Sat Feb 23, 2019 1:36 pm

I thought I would share my journey in a VCS3 repair and installation of a selection of mods from http://www.portabellabz.be

Initial inspection and diagnosis of why it will not power up.

Installation of MFC6070 replacement option

Installation of the buffers to the matrix including before and after tests of splitting a single CV to all 3 oscillators

And finally installation of the Sample and hold generator and a paraphonic demo using the Silent Way voice controller.

I'm not a synths dealer and I'm not aware of an inexpensive Synthi secret market, please don't ask me if I know one for sale.
I don't offer support of any kind to people attempting to build clones of EMS equipment.
