Hi everyone! my name is Jeramiah from New Zealand. Happy 2021
In my studio I have a Roland D-10 from the 80’s with a few dead keys and slightly unresponsive buttons (on the start/stop) functions. Apart from that it’s working fine with all it’s cheesy 80’s glory. Research via Youtube tells me It’s to do with the circuit board and that I can use a pencil to re-draw the connections? personally, are there replacement parts to just swap out the whole circuit for the keyboard? It’s covered in stickers unfortunately and they don’t want to seem to scrub off…Cosmetics! It’s important!
Also, I have a Ensoniq SQ1, I need 5 replacement keys (used ice cream container lids and super glue for the meantime) A new battery, and also any help on the rom chip upgrade. Research again tells me upgrading the rom chips in the SQ1 is a bit of a tricky process on the older models with the non plastic casing on the outside. I have the "built like a tank’ model.
I also wouldn’t mind memory cards for both the D-10 and the ensoniq. I’m not sure what I would need to make a flash drive of sorts and just load what i need in there…
Please respond and let me know the best options in moving forward. I have gotten obsessed with it now and want to “make it so”
