Hello! My Arp Axxe Died WAAY back in 2005!
Here's the problem - the filter went down! It still powers on, and the OSC works when an alligator clip is tied directly to output, so it's just the filter.
So here is what needs to be repaired:
1) The filter
2) The ad-on PPC is completely disconnected and will need to be re-wired and working again (I want the PPC to work for sure!)
And 3), this is a sort of a Question. I wish to turn my Arp Axxe into a midi controller so I can use the AXXE to control an M-tron (mellotron) program on my PC. Is this what the Kenton Midi socket is for? Or is the kenton midi thing just to allow an external controller to control the OSC on the Axxe? I don't really need that, because I have the Keyboard on the Axxe to control the AXXE lol.
If indeed I can turn my Axxe into a MIDI controller, this would be the third upgrade I would want to have performed on my Axxe. So with this in mind, how much expense am I looking at? I'm not rich, but at the same time I am motivated to have this fixed as it has been broken for like 8 years lol.
How much should I expect to pay for all this work, and who on the east Coast can be trusted to do this without over-charging me or taking 3 months?? I live in CT, but I would ship to Boston/NY. Any pro tips? This means so much to me that you'd take the time to help me with my problem. Thanks so much. John
