“This is a great introduction to modular synthesizers.

The unit is 90% functional, but the EG is not working. It is likely repairable as it was working previously. I purchased most of the modules off ebay and assembled them in my own makeshift case. I modded the vco’s with alpha trim pots and routed them to the front panel. The power supply is original but I added an inline AC filter at it’s front end. The power plug comes out of the left hand panel and is a standard 3 prong AC. The modules are power supply, 2 vco’s, bandpass and low pass filters, 2 vca’s, LFO/noise module, and EG.

This synthesizer is linear VCO’s. Circa DIY kit from about 1970. I’ve used a qunexus to control it as well as a beatstep and a korg sq1. It tracks in Hz per volt over about 12 to 14 semitones. This is by design as the original design had a keyboard which was tunes by individual key and trimpot. I started putting this synth together as a project to learn about modular synths but have outgrown it and moved on to eurorack. I am an electronics technician by trade so the build is pretty sound.

If you bid on this please be aware of what you are bidding on as I will not accept returns based on “thinking it was exponential”” Link

“In perfect working condition with some slight rack rash. From December 2013. Ships with the original box, screws, and power cable” Link

“Before I go any further, I must point out that the pot on channel 3 has an area that is a little bit scratchy. Personally, I tended not to use the middle two channels as much as 1&4 so it was never a big problem for me.

If you’re a dab hand with a soldering iron, Tony @ Make Noise will sell you a replacement potentiometer. I have an Optomix that developed a similar problem a few years back – it’s easy enough to change. There are also a handful of reputable synth techs in the UK who I’m sure would also be able to do it for you for a small fee. ”

It has the latest firmware V2 installed which provides a lowest note center at C just like the other Harvestman modules. There are 10 outputs for use in complex CV patches and you can self patch this like crazy for very interesting results. Light rack rash and only used in a smoke free studio. Included is the original box and quick start guide. Take a look at the harvestman website for more information or check out examples on youtube.” Link

It is modular and quirky, great for noises and drones, but not for typical synth applications. All components are analog and their tuning will change throughout operation. Operation is very unpredicable due to unstable tuning and induction, this is intented. It will not ever sound like Deadmau5.”

Modular, PAIA @ 02 May 2017, Comments Off on PAiA 4700 Modular Synthesizer

4700 “Restored Paia 4700 system. I put two solid weeks of work into bringing this back to life.

DOES NOT INCLUDE ANY CABLES – but I will include a small coil of vintage wire and some pin connectors so you can build your own power connectors. You will need to supply your own 1/8 cables though.

In excellent physical condition. All modules work as they should (warts and all – note that some knobs have strange travel end points, by design).

All electrolytic capacitors on all modules have been replaced! In nearly all cases I used high quality Nichicon PW caps. I also increased cap values in some places to reduce noise.

A number of ICs were replaced to restore full functionality.

All VCOs were tuned and calibrated in May 2012 – scaled for use with my Novation bass station as the CV converter (if that even matters). It has been unused and in storage since then. They are sensitive, and may need recalibration after shipping, so I cannot guarantee that it will arrive in tune.

Issues:
1) top right LED on sequencer is out, but the step works. An easy fix that I never got around to doing.
2) The 18V supply in this is total crap by design. Consequently, there is still some hum, even after recapping on modules that use it. I was testing the unit in Sweden, and it is possible that the hum was enhanced because of my power set up there. It may be lower when on proper US voltage/frequency. Regardless, after discussing this with Marvin Jones (ex-Paia), I came to the conclusion that the best step would be to just add a new isolated 18V supply. I have not done this though. It’s up to the buyer to do if they so desire.” Link

PAIA @ 02 May 2017, Comments Off on PAiA Oz Project Machine

“Ok. So here goes. I put 8 new batteries in this and tested it out. To me it appears the knobs/dials need cleaned and then it would work. After trying it for 5 minutes it FINALLY worked when i turned a dial. It worked for about 1 minute and then back to not working. It started working when i was turning the dials randomly. Looks like i touched one again and then it stopped. All lights work. The light changes as it should on the selector. Speaker worked when it did for the one few seconds. The far left key sticks but appears to be too close to the front edge of the housing and so it binds when pressed down. All keys worked when i tried except one, then it stopped working all together, so not sure what that was. So this is sold as is and needs fixed up to be 100% again. Battery compartment is clean. Has wear here and there. I try and show everything in the pics.” Link

OO “Please note that the 1st knob to the left on the lower row is scratchy, it is fairly mild. Another knob did become very scratchy a few years back and I bought a replacement potentiometer from Make Noise and replaced it myself.

So to recap, one of the pots has been replaced (and both works and feels like the rest of them – i.e you can’t tell which knob has been replaced) and one knob is slightly scratchy but for me, it wasn’t enough of a problem that I felt I wanted to replace it. You may feel different, if so, it’s easy enough to do if you know how to use a soldering iron or there are a handful of good synth techs who could do it for what I imagine to be a small cost.” Link

Modular, Serge @ 14 March 2017, Comments Off on Serge Modular Animoo Panel

animoo “I hate to part with this, but I got myself into a financial mess by buying it in the first place. Letting it go fairly cheap to recoup my debt. It’s a great sounding, functionally dense powerhouse shop panel, and it has the “Animoo” upgrade of the traditional Animal, meaning there’s ring mod functionality added to the wave-multipliers section. Everything works well, and only cosmetic issue are some extra holes drill into side of boat. Includes a power supply (I don’t know that stats on it, but the guy I got it from was running several full Serge panels with it), an Obelisk to serve as a psd (bonus if you want to expand to M-Class panels), and 11 black 24″ pomona banana cables, 10 18″ red pomona cables, and five pomona shorting bars. Not sure of its full history, but I did have two faulty pots replaced recently by a tech in Portland, OR (one in the mixer section, and the gain pot in the UAP section, which was noisy & scratchy before — now works beautifully)” Link

Modular, PAIA @ 07 March 2017, Comments Off on PAiA 4700

pai4700 “I’ve tested every module in this unit and for the most part, they are all functional. The two 2720-1 VCA’s are a mystery to me as to how or if they they are working correctly or not. One of the two I can get to work but the volume is pretty low. The other I can’t seem to get to work. I might be patching them wrong but there might be an issue with them too. In any case, one functions at a low volume and the other may not be working.

I bought this synth from a close friend. Everything seems to be original besides the odds and ends I replaced. I cleaned the pots, replaced the module screws, replaced the rubber feet, and replaced some of the patch cable wires, keeping the original jacks.

I’m including a bunch of patch cables. Some are original and some are new. You may need a few more but there are enough included to get some solid patches. 1/8 mono audio cords (eurorack style) work for the audio and E0512C speaker wire pins work great for the voltage connections (see picture).

Because this modular is old, I’m selling it as-is. Be aware that shipping this item has the potential to damage the electronics. It is unlikely but possible. I will take care to pack the item to prevent damage and I’ll be shipping through UPS.

As a buyer of such an item, I’m assuming that you understand the nature of vintage audio equipment, appreciate the quirkiness and character of analog circuitry, have at least a basic understanding about how this synthesizer works, and that you are willing and able to solder a loose wire if one happens to shake loose during shipping. Luckily, manuals on operating and assembling these synths can be found online if you need to repair or upgrade/restore the synth.”
