Fixing Ensoniq ESQ-1 Synthesizer #shorts​

video by Runningonair

"I've been planning to look deeper into the ESQ-1 for some time, but unfortunately it locked up, so I've not been able to use it. It's done this before and it's reasonably easy to fix. As it is so easy, I thought this would be a good opportunity to try out the new #shorts​ format on YouTube. Don't worry, I'll be sticking to the usual format most of the time (or maybe this is better?), so you can expect a normal video soon.

The track is called CONSPIRACY THEORY and you can find the full video here: [posted here]

Notes on this video and fixing synths in general:
I would not advise anyone poking around inside their keyboards, unless they have good electronics experience. Apart from issues of harm, relating to electric shock, there is a good chance you will make any problems worse if you don't know what you are doing.
The remedy for this keyboard's problem is unlikely to be the issue on other units. I just happen to know this is the issue and I've heard, via various Facebook groups, that others have had the same problem.

Having said that, the contact enhancer, although not a miracle worker, has been very helpful for me. It's called "STABILANT 22" you don't need a lot of it.

here's a link for more info:"
