PAiA 3750 Programmable Drum Set

Hello and thank you for writing. The 3750 Programmable Drum Set was discontinued back in the '80s. We still have manuals archived that can be photocopied and the charge for this is $15. We're in the process of getting old manuals scanned so we can post them online, but this could be a while yet. The...

2720 and 4700 series patch cords, FatMan interface, insight

The patch cords for the modules consisted of 1/8" mini phone plugs for the audio cables and pin plugs for the control voltages/triggers. Flexible, rubberized test lead cable is good for the patch cords. The pin plugs aren't as readily available as the 1/8" phone plugs, but Mouser 800-346-6873 has th...

TubeHead quality

Hello Mark. Thanks for writing with an interest in TubeHead. It is great for warming CDs or other digital audio sources in a hi-fi or recording situation (on the inputs of the recorder too) and has excellent fidelity and signal to noise ratio. It is also great for guitar as an effect but in this app...

PAiA 9700 MIDI2CV8, 9720 VCO

Hello Paolo. The mod you describe for regulating the positive and negative dc supplies to the MIDI2CV8 parts should be OK. I am curious though, does your board have the update with the trace to pin 7 of IC13 cut, and a piece of thin wire added to link pins 7 and 8 of this IC? Sorry, but I am at the ...

PAiA 9730 VCF

Hello Paolo. It is good hearing that your system is nearly in working order! One thing about the VCF that could make it seem like it is not right is that it can break into oscillation if the Q is too far advanced. But there are measures that can be taken to ensure this doesn't occur. On high Q setti...

9505 Theremax

Subject: Re: theremax pitch range Hello Jared. When Theremax is in a much smaller case it is likely there could be something too close to the antennae mounts such as the metal case bottom or some wiring (power supply or panel to circuit-board. Also, if there is not a good connection between the ante...

using the 9201FK to convert CV to MIDI

Hello Steven. Yes, but the sequencer events will be converted as MIDI control change messages. Maybe these will work for you. Our 9201FK project kit for getting cv to MIDI is only for Control Change messages, ie Modulation Wheel, Volume, Data Slider, Portamento time, etc... (but also includes Pitch ...

9201FK as cv to MIDI converter

Hello Andrew. Thanks for checking. We have a circuit board project kit for a cv to MIDI converter called the 9201FK MIDI Fader. It was planned to be in a box with sliders to work as controls for MIDI devices, but didn't ever make it into production. If you get the kit, you'll see the assembly instru...

9407 Tube MicPreAmp

Hello Stan. It's good hearing that you have solved the trouble. The main reason we have the power source connecting direct to the board is for more options when we buy them to go in the kits. Then, by wiring direct, the cost of a connector set is saved too. Since it was a kit 'repair' that alerted u...
