of some mods and a bit of hacking. There are quite a few mods out there already so we (Cobramatic & I)
decided to have a go at ours. I'd particularly like to thank Instructables & Darren Glen.
I've placed links to all theirs ideas at the bottom of this post.
The actions described in this post will void your warranty and may damage your equipment. I take no responsibility for your soldering ability or actions.
I'd be happy to put a link to your page in this post.
Notice the rather tiny SMD components.
You will need a magnifier, a good light and as fine a point tip as you can find, as well as very thin solder.
This involves soldering a capacitor across these two points. I chose to solder leads first then attach the cap.
I used a 104 ceramic. ... 0.1 uF (5mm pitch)
Today I'm using a Taylors Red. This is a lovely 2001 drop from the Clare Valley of South Australia.
I wanted to test if varying the capacitor size would affect the sound. Yes it does !!!
The interesting ones were 105 & 104s.
At this point secure your leads with tape or glue.
Don't do as I did and leave them to float.
Next the Midi out jack:
Just 3 connections are required. These are labeled VD, GND and TX.
Paul's mod is slightly different to mine and uses switches rather than pots to allow quicker swapping between sounds.
