Roland Paraphonic 505 in need of love... please re:
<P> A couple of years ago my
brother gave me an analogue synth(Roland Paraphonic 505) for my
I thought that was pretty cool of him. I haven't stopped playing
it since. I think this thing was built in '72, which is four years
before I even came into existence...
<P> somewhere along the line
I got a girlfriend..... I thought she was pretty cool too, until
she dumped (of all things) jack and coke (I guess??) on that same very
keyboard I loved so much....
<P> I've still got the keyboard,
got rid of the girlfriend, but things still don't feel the same...
<P> My hope is that I will have the good fortune
of becoming acquainted with a "kindred soul" who will happily guide my
blind and stumbling 21 year old body through the mind bending world of
synth repair and maintenance...
<P>The list of actual "minor" problems is somewhat staggerring, so I won't
bother everyone with the complete stress. However, if anyone is
with this synth and how to make keys stop sticking and knobs stop making
noise e-mail me and I'll be glad to hand out small easily handled dosages
