And obviously wanted to mention that I'm reffering to my VCO1 being faulty in the previous post.

Exactly. The problem we're having right now is also no output audio from VCO2. Trust me, we tried swapping chips all over that board, ordered new ones and just did a "plug and play" diagnostic. Nothing got it working. Our tech stepped in and determined something has probably failed before the oscillator section but he's not sure. As simple a design it may look, it's apparently very complicated...

It could very well be a million things, but when OSC 2 was out on mine it turned out to be a loose calibration pot (the internal pot directly above the VCO 2 Modulation Depth right knob).

I think the signal goes through so many of the pots, switches and sliders; if there's a bad connection on any switch it will kill the entire signal and there's a lot of switches. Sort of like the old school Christmas light chain where if one bulb went out, they all went.
Too futurist to live.
