As usual a CR2032 you should be able to get from every computer shop, due to the battery holder it's easy to replace...

Or CVS or walgreens here in the US would have those too.

cool- thanks! i may actually have one around here, it may have been the same one my former OB-Mx used over & over. any idea how to get to it? i know it's on the board that the headphone jack is on but i've never cracked the FS1R open. either way, i'm sure its simple enough to figure out.

Easy. Flip over, take out the screws, remove the rear panel and take off the PCB (if it doesn't have a battery holder). You can't go wrong.

you must mean Google Images. i saw that picture before i started the thread, that's how i determined the battery was on the board with the headphone jack. it'll be interesting to see how the boards are arranged, i'd crack it open but won't do so until i have the battery. i may replace the battery in my other older rack synths- the UltraProteus, Pro/cussion, Matrix-1000 as long as i'm going through the trouble.
