I'm a newbie to this forum. I'm a bass player who's been advised by my friends over on the BassChat forums that this is the place for the help I need.
So I bought an Arp - Quartet recently and it sounded great for 10 minutes.
Then when switching patches it seemed to be stuck on 'organ' sound. When I press a different patch it switches into that patch (the led for that patch lights up) but the organ led remains lit too!
The only sound I can get from the synth is when I press the organ patch and only have the 'celeste' slider up (on) if I slide up the organ slider (1 octave lower) it cuts out all sound.
I have very limited technical knowledge of analog gear, but I've had a look inside and sprayed contact cleaner on a few bits I thought could be relevant but sadly nothing has changed.
On a separate note I have also noticed that the tuning was flat, and when I turned the tuning pot the sound cuts in and out and you have to kind of gently let go of it in the right position to leave it producing sound. I believe this to be totally unrelated to the main problem.
If anyone can input any advice or suggest someone who could perform a service/repair for me that would be fantastic. Preferably somewhere reasonably local-ish to Teesside would be great. I would consider using a courier (anything to get it back up and running!) although I believe the problem I currently have could well have been done in transit with a courier!
Many thanks in advance guys,
