Hi again, another ARP question. I’ve restored an old Omni 2 that was completely trashed, and got it all functional… except the bass section.
The bass strings work fine and sound good. But both the 8’ and 16’ bass mono synth sections sound pretty weak and low volume at the output (both the main output and the separate bass output). It looks like the bass volume slider works properly, as do both bass section switches and the staccato switch.
I’m poking around on the bass voice board and elsewhere to see what I can find but figured I’d ask the crowd here if anyone has worked on one of these and is familiar with the bass voice or has had a similar problem? I do have a scope and service manual and will be working on it tonight, and will follow up if I figure it out…
I guess I haven’t played any other Omni 2, so maybe the bass on these is just kind of weak - but I suspect that it should sound better than mine does.
