Hi, I recently acquired an Ensoniq Mirage but it’s giving me some grief:
- Bootup takes a little long, some research online hints that this may be calibration routines timing out.
- MIDI in driven it works like it should, or at least that’s what it sounds like.
- It’s own keyboard sounds like it’s modulated all the time (or something closely resembling that effect); interestingly this also occurs when using the Mirage’s MIDI out to drive another synth. So that may narrow it down a bit.
2 screws are completely dull and I won’t get the tools to properly take them out until Saturday so I can’t reach the modulation/pitch wheel potmeters and see if they’re the ones causing this circus (could well be), but any tips are welcome.
I recapped the PSU completely btw.
- it’s the first model.
