Really weak resonance after new build? Wtf
Hi all, this is my third x0xb0x and I have built many other kits as well, this is the first time I've ever ended up with a problem though... Hopefully someone can point me in the right direction. The synth basically works fine, and if I wasn't familiar with how its supposed to sound I'd never even know anything is wrong, but the resonance just won't scream like its supposed to. When I crank it it *almost* gets there, but the best it will do is just a little blip with the env mod up and decay as short as possible. When I increase the decay, instead of the little blip of screamyness stretching out and doing the bubbly watery thing its supposed to, it just kind of goes away. There is *some* resonance, it thins out the sound and stuff like normal, it just can't get the rest of the way home. I pulled it apart and have spent the last 15 mins or so looking for backwards transistors or caps or shorts but can't see anything. Next step is reflowing the whole filter section, but I figured I'd post here first in case any one else has run into this one before. Thanks in advance for any insight you might have to offer!
