Re: Red/black vs brown/black jacks - which is original 2700?

I don't think that anything was changed/modified in the circuit, other than some internal patching between some of the modules. When I routed for example the VCO's triangle or pulse output to the Sine/PWM module, and controlled it from one of the bias dials, it had the same effect - distorted and fu...

Re: Red/black vs brown/black jacks - which is original 2700?

Yeah, that's my problem, I have so many ideas flying around in my head, and they collide with each other and I'm like "Oh, screw this!". Well I don't have the time and money to do a complete redesign of a Paia case/modules at this point in time plus they (the modules) are more valuable in original c...

Modern bands that use old Paia gear?

Are there any modern music bands or artists (or popular artists in the past) that use Paia gear, particularly 2700 and 4700 synths? When ever I see modern bands performing, be it on TV, bar or in a Concert I see anything anything from cheapyo casios to Arp modulars but I don't remember ever seeing s...

Re: Red/black vs brown/black jacks - which is original 2700?

Interesting. I was actually thinking about saving the metal cover and perhaps put together one made of clear/colored plexiglass/plastic, and put some lights in it. I intend to extend the rackspace anyhow so it holds two rows of modules. Actually I could do that with my other Paia, I was gonna replac...

Re: Red/black vs brown/black jacks - which is original 2700?

No, it's not an aged red color. Those Jacks are dark brown as in Chocolate brown, front and body. That and the old style components (silver caps, dark brown resistors) lead me to believe that those modules might be first generation 2700 modules, not the 2720 modules with red jacks. Just trying to ma...

Re: Powering Paia modules from battery?

Hmmm.. shouldn't it be possible to use just one 18V power source, if a polarity inverter is used thus generating a positive and negative 18V output, and let's say I use an adjustable voltage regulator on each of the positive and negative nodes to get 9V on each side, thus achieving a positive line w...

Re: Paia Oz & Stringz'n'Thingz question...

hmm.. that kind of gives me an idea for a single vco "ring modulator", FM, or harmonic generator.

Red/black vs brown/black jacks - which is original 2700?

I have received another Paia 27xx type synth and I have noticed something very interesting - while it contains two 4700 type modules, which have red and black CV jacks, the others seem to be the original 2700 ones, but they have brown and black jacks, not the red and black ones that my other 2720 ha...

Re: Paia Oz & Stringz'n'Thingz question...

So.. could I technically throw a switch between the main oscillator and the divide-down circuitry and run the signal, say from a paia 2720 through said divide circuit and get polyphony out of it?

Question about 4780 sequencer

Is it possible to say have the top and bottom row play simultaneously? Could I for example use the top row for playing the VCO and the bottom row to sequence/trigger the VCF? Another thing I hope to accomplish, if that's possible at all is to get and put together the drum tone and use one row for th...
