"Sound will make doves cry

The good

Every key, button, knob, pitch and mod works as it should.

Saving works

Cv gate all working

Replaced power supply

Amazing tone raw organic feels like always in movement

Wood in nice condition overall

The bad

Three keys not aligned properly as seen in pics.

Took it to a synth tech here in LA several years ago to deal with an issue where the 4th voice seemed to not be going through the filter, envelope or mod etc. would just voice as a raw osc. Tech diagnosed it as an issue with the poly mod section. I believe it is fixed and does not occur on new created patches. But I have experienced the problem on some of the presets. It's an issue that should be investigated further by a tech. "
