SynthTweaks.com – Same Site, Ne...

SynthTweaks.com is the new domain name for Synthesizers.Audio. While the old name is one I particularly like, it seems not everyone is taking to these specialised names. Everyone knows what a dot com domain is though. If I was to write Synthesizers.Audio on a piece of paper and hand it around a group of people, most wouldn’t recognise i [...]

AmbisonicMusic.com launched!

I recently registered a new domain name, AmbisonicMusic.com, which now has a home right here on the surround sound section of Synthesizers.Audio. Ambisonics allows for far greater flexibility than regular surround and contains 3D information (width, depth AND height). I’ll be uploading some Ambisonic mixes in the coming weeks for everyo [...]

Configuring Windows 10 For Multichann...

Windows 10 is very easy to configure for multichannel surround audio providing you have a surround capable audio card/interface and speaker system. This should also work on earlier versions of Windows OS as well. Step 1 (Note: I have my taskbar at the top of the screen) Right click the speaker icon on your taskbar and select ‘Playback d [...]

At the end of PART 2 of this article, we had completed the work on the chip repairs and now we will continue with the preparation of the Module Board for the refitting of the chips. First up, we need to remove the remains of the old chip pins. Turn the Module Board over to the solder side and apply a small amount of fresh solder to each of th [...]

Roland Juno 106 80017a VCF/VCA Chip R...

At the end of PART 1 of this article, we had our chip/s soaking in Acetone prior to removal of the resin casing and/or resoldering of the chip components. The chip I had repaired previously was left soaking for two days. Due to unforseen circumstances, this time I had to travel interstate for a few days and the chip was soaking while I was go [...]

Roland Juno 106 80017a VCF/VCA Chip R...

Many people who have owned, or still own a Roland Juno 106 synthesizer are aware of the infamous 80017a filter chip failure. Being a six voice polyphonic synth, the Juno 106 contains six of these chips, one for each voice. When they fail, they typically cause either a loss of sound from the affected voice, or a crackle that usually gets worse [...]

Book of Remembrance

Then those who feared the LORD spoke with each other. The LORD listened and took note, and a scroll of remembrance was written in his presence about those who fear the LORD and honor His name. “They’ll be mine,” says the LORD of the Heavenly Armies, “in the day when I prepare my treasured possession. I’ll spare t [...]

Under the Fig Tree

Jesus saw Nathanael coming toward him and said, “This man coming is a true Israelite, one you can trust.” Nathanael asked, “How do you know me?” Jesus answered, “I saw you when you were under the fig tree, before Philip told you about me.” Then Nathanael said, “Teacher, you are the Son of God. You are [...]

No More Pain

I heard a loud voice shout from the throne: God’s home is now with his people. He will live with them, and they will be his own. Yes, God will make his home among his people. He will wipe all tears from their eyes, and there will be no more death, suffering, crying, or pain. These things of the past are gone forever. Then the one sittin [...]
