Synhouse Midijack

Anyone have a synhouse midijack install on their synth? I'm just curious about the reputation and quality of the product.

I've got one fitted to my Pro-One, never had any problems with it. Once fitted it's simply a matter of calibrating it which can be a bit fiddly but once that's done it should work just fine. One thing to mention though, it will require a couple of small holes and a couple of screws to be fitted into the front panel of your synth, nothing too major but worth knowing about before you buy it.

I had one in my Prodigy and it never ! ! ! ! ! worked propelly ,Synth wasgoing out of tune if you went from a c1 to c3 calibrating didn't solve the problem i had to remove it as the synth was not working propelly with it .
The guy making them is great though .He sent me a 2nd one as the first got lost in the post....

I though about having one fitted to my micromoog. I decided against it. To many people adding the midijack would make the synth less desirable, decreasing possible resale value. Secondly, you can get good midi to cv converters that do more for not much more money. The Doepfer MCV4 is a bit more expensive but can do more and is not going to hurt the synth or its value.

Well I was considering it for a synth that doesn't even have CV/gate... However there are schematics to add CV/gate and I have a bassstation I could use as midi-cv. I'll keep kicking the idea around.
