SammichSID Novation Zero SL mkii template

Those geniuses at Novation shipped this controller with a couple of software disks but alas, no TEMPLATE EDITOR for people who dont use a pc to make music.

Download the template editor program from their support pages, connect the Zero SL to your pc via usb, switch it on and fire the software. Press Global options on the SL, choose mem protect off.

Load the syx file provided by yours truly:

Masuto’s SammichSID template 😊

and then.. select

Press Write, and bob’s your uncle.

I saved it in location 20 (empty) and made it the startup template.

For your reference, heres a crudely PAINT assembled wildcard:

Happy knob twiddling!

Hohner Cembalet repair

My beloved Hohner Cembalet I has gone silent, all of a sudden.

Here we go with a few pics i took for reference of the main board.

They may help someone else whos trying to fix his Cembalet.. I hope.

Schem and user manual (in kraut):

Update: the Cembalet healed itself and now it works great. I did not have to do anything to it, it just works again, magic, bang.

A friend who’s an electronic repairer said that the most important part to watch out for is the inductor (Spule in german), as it’s custom wound to specs for this instrument.

De La Soul Three Feet High And Rising

1989. This and Paul’s Boutique blew my mind that year.

Can you guess how many times i happily re-bought this record (the first one being the picture disc when it first came out) through the years? Same as Paul’s Boutique actually.. 😂
