dobrega currently on the repair/modify workstation: ribbon microphone transformer upgrade swap. #mxl #r40 ribbon mic gets a high quality #edcor #rmx1 #transformer. stoked to hear how much better it's going to sound, especially on upright bass! 5d

dobrega Juno 6 LFO trigger button repair complete! Caig CaiKote 44 did the trick. Next up: install MIDI retrofit kit and replace noisy chorus chips! 2mon
  •   dobrega if any Juno 6/60 owners do this same repair, don't desolder the bracket that holds the switch - you only needs to desolder the four joints that connect the switch to the circuit board and then the switch can be removed up out of the bracket- I wasted a lot of time desoldering the bracket cause I didn't realize it wasn't necessary 2mon
  •   eric_irwin Aw yeah. I may have to do this too 2mon
  •   thepizsness want to hear a new dobrega album soon!!!! 2mon

dobrega repairing the Juno today- LFO trigger hasn't worked ever since I've had it- here's finally being able to use that button! 2mon
  •   dobrega @cassidyturbin 6 but it's about to get a midi retrofit kit installed 2mon
  •   dobrega @itsmeelan success! 2mon
  •   cassidyturbin Ohhhh!! Nice! That'll make things fun. 2mon
  •   dobrega @cassidyturbin yeah man- can't wait! 2mon
  •   rogdomingo Do you pretty much keep this stuff at home or do you toss it into a few suitcases when you fly to distant gigs? Send me a clip of the TSA frenzy. 1mon
  •   dobrega @rogdomingo ha most of it stays at home in the studio. the live rig is fairly compact and fits in a case I'm modifying (my poor man's version of a pelican case). I'll send you some pics! haven't flown with it yet but expecting some TSA hassle when I do. 1mon
  •   shessorad I gotta repair the same button o n my 60 2w
  •   dobrega @shessorad yeah man it's common for it to go out on the Juno 6s and 60s and not too difficult of a repair. once you have that circuit board out, just desolder the four joints that connect the switch to the board (no need to desolder the bracket!) and you can easily pop out the switch, open it up and apply conductive coating to the rubber contact inside. I used CaiKote 44 from caig (folks who make deoxit) but any coating that repairs keyboard or membrane button contacts should work 2w
