New synth day!
I've been thinking about picking up a vintage monophonic synth for a while - ideally a Moog Rogue or Prodigy. Last week a saw an MG-1 (basically a Moog Rogue repackaged for sale by Radio Shack back in the day) going for $250 on EBay. It was non-functional, being sold as-is, and I thought I'd take a chance.
Got it yesterday, and after an hour with the multimeter and service manual, I determined that the problem was the switch in one of the jacks was bad - bend the tabs a bit, voila, everything works perfectly
This thing sound AWESOME - definitely has that Moog squelchy bass and lead thing going on. I'll try to post up some clips and pics in a day or so, but it looks like this:
Nice! I just ventured into synth territory by purchasing a Korg X50 last week. Lots of fun!
