Polysix Midi Retrofit Board installation

I did this one some weeks ago, and also documented it all, but did not have the time yet to post it all… so i might take the time this week…

UPDATE: Here are two shots I made during the installation. The main problem was the drilling of the hole to the outsinde, it took me almost 1 hour to do this, and as a result I damaged the drill completely! see the pics.

The Install itself is really easy, just solder 6 cables to the apropriate points, and mount the Midi jack. thats it! If anybody is interested in a complete report on this, i have pics for every step and some more explanations on it…

So I decided to give it a try, first repaired some more basic stuff (mainly the keyboard), and then gave it to the guys at defekt.ch, who did a really great job on fixing the typical battery issue; so now he sounds great, and is a lot of fun…

Midi interface is cooming soon,  just ordered it at www.chd-el.cz,i´ll post more after having it built in…
