Hi, I just got a built 9v Anushri, in a box, but with the in/out panel un-connected. I want to turn it into a Euro version.
(I apologise if this has been done many times in this forum, but its many pages long now, didnt find my exact question)
First I desoldered the audio jacks, (it doesnt fit in my rack with them anyway) and removed the voltage chip as per the instructions on the site.
For now I have left the midi jacks in place (pending the answer to this question)
I thought I would check it out in this state.
Everything powered up no trouble: And by feeding it a clock, and cabling into either teh audio out or the drums out, I got the drum machine to work. Nice! (but see question #3)
So then to the synth— no sign of it (quicky question, SHOULD it play with just a jack in audio, and maybe a press of sequencer start? OR do I have to program the seq from a midi keyboard for anything to be heard) Anyway, I plugged in a gate and CV from my Klee sequencer, and still nothing from the synth voice.
However, because I haven’t yet wired up the NEW jacks that will be on the in/out panel, Im wondering that by removing the jacks have I also removed a normalisation using the jack switches, and after finishing the job, it will work?
Is it necessary to completely remove the midi sockets on the Anushri before connecting to the midi sockets on the in/out panel? (its quite a job to remove 5 big connections without a bit of pcb burning…)
Or could I connect to the pads on the revese of the board, OR… are there some other points I could connect to? I notice an unused series of solder points in the centre of the board… (marked EN CLK SER GND +5) What is that for?
The operation of the drum machine is fantastic! I also have GRIDS and I love that its the same methodology as that) However, the kick drum sound is a) REALLY long… and b) very full of 8bit(ish) artifacts. The artifacts I could live with if the kick was shorter, but as it stands, I hear 8bit-ish buzzing the whole time… Plus I have a feeling it might destroy PAs, and certainly the mix, with this much bass up the whole time…
Sorry for huge post…
