I've had to replace a few backup batteries, solder a few wires here and there, reseat a few ICS, get a replacemetn FDD for my DSS-1, and replace another voice on my Juno-106....
Now, the poor Akai.
He was working fine. Just fine, save for a dead floppy, but I had workarounds for that.
All of a sudden, there was a fuzzyness (like when you overdrive the input going into an amp)...to all recorded samples, no matter what volume level (sampling, input, size of signal going in etc).
Then a few weeks later, it stopped recording all together. Upon recording it just locks up, never to finish. It'll say it's "recording" or "waiting for audio" but never moves from there.
I've heard these things have backup batteries (???), but I have the service manual here, and the sampler is in about 40 pieces on my work table here....I don't see a backup battery ANYWHERE.
So, to all you wonderful synth and sampler gurus that have helped me so much in the past- what can I do to get this classic beast working again? I have cash for parts, and an intermediate comprehension of electronics repair.
