Powering Paia modules from battery?

Is it possible to power a set of modules from a bunch of 9V batteries (I know I'd need at least four for +- 18V and 9V) or would I have to use one or two for each individual module? What if I use, say an 18V battery pack with a simple inverter circuit for dual polarity and voltage regulators for the...

Trying to fix a Gnome, don't know where to begin

I have the Paia Gnome sitting around for some time now. It was an as-is purchase as in it was sold in the condition it was found in, untested, etc.. and it was for a pretty good price, but as you might have guessed by now it doesn't work. When it arrived it had a piece of orange wire sticking out of...

Re: paia 2700 lots of issues... hum and more

No, he didn't tell me anything about the mods, he only stated that the paia produced sound and it had not been further tested. He must be one of them storage raiders who sells the contents found in abandoned storage facilities on ebay or something. I found out that there was a loose wire touching th...

Ok, here are some shots of the synth and the modules that are modified. Enjoy! PS: The top and back of the synth have a funky fabric backing of dancing skeletons on a black background 8-) https://app.box.com/s/ppwbdnek1vhhd0amyl8b https://app.box.com/s/6aiqu8fqjx42kqgvl5sb https://app.box.com/s/x2d3...

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

Is it possible to route in an external signal and divide it down, kind of like the EML polybox? I heard from somewhere that the Oz can do that or is that a myth? How about the Stringz?

Re: paia 2700 lots of issues... hum and more

Thank you very much for your reply and advice. The synth has all of the modules that you mentioned plus an inverter/buffer, envelope follower and a sine/pwm module. I'm not sure if any of these are 2700 io 4700 type modules but all modules have the same amount of rust on them, so I assume that they ...

Re: paia 2700 lots of issues... hum and more

Bump!

No help? Nothing? Hello?

PS: The VCA output is also extremely low. The inverter module seems to give it a pretty good boost, but the hum gets boosted up as well. So.. any suggestions are highly appreciated.

paia 2700 lots of issues... hum and more

Hello, I have received a Paia 2700/2720 yesterday, and for the most part it works fine (and I'm able to make a half decend phaser from the bandpass and inverter modules :D however, there's a big damper - first off when I switch on the Paia and I have the headphones/line connected to VCA out, there's...
