Remember to use your synths

That might sound odd, but seriously, how many of you have an extra synth or two that doesn't get much attention; just sitting there waiting for the right mood? Well, make sure to turn them on, dust them and tweak them now and then. A common problem is just plain dust setting on contacts and pots. I sometimes find the best fix for a stuck key or scratchy pot is to just use it a bit. The problem sometimes goes away. The title link takes you to a post on Vintage Synth Explorer, where a tech actually says to try using the gear a bit first. Makes you think twice about that "mint" synth on the 'bay that has been locked in storage for years. : )
