If you spent two grand on that, you would indeed be left with your 'Anasaur'

I dunno. The seller did say it rivals a $6000 Memorymoog. If this is the case, then he should jack up the price IMO. It may sound better than a Jupiter 8 then.

Perhaps we are missing a deal here!! After all, you get all the Juno sounds AND it's better than a Minimoog as the seller states.

wow... thats pretty wrong. mks-7 is not a vco synth.... it's DCO (on 6 voices) and if I remember right, the bassline oscillator is generated from the microcontroller, so that's not even a DCO.

also it has the same filter/vca chips as the juno 106/jx3p/ mks30 that are all doomed to die eventually... though at least if it's worth US$1800, then the $300ish it will eventually cost to replace them all is pocket change...

I wonder what happened to the original panel? my guess is they decided the original cream panel that one had wasn't pro looking enough, and decided that a coat of black paint and some dymo labels would be better? idiots.

I send a polite email to the guy letting him know the reality, I feel bad for the guy if someone sold HIM a bill of goods, I have a feeling he's just a broker or something.

If not, then he's a chump.

This quote is fun:

The Rhythm section offers up a few basic electronic rock drum sounds borrowed from the TR-707.
The sounds are richly and identifiably analog, with all the inherent quirkiness.

Hi, could you expand on that? I have a MKS-7 with non-working bass and I would love to know where to start my troubleshooting.

Thanks.

Try and find the service manual. I just googled but didn't have much luck... but whatever the problem is, you'll be better off with a service manual..

I haven't looked at it for a long time but I remember pretty strongly that the bass voice was driven from the micro. there was the square wave, which was the direct pin output, and a sawtooth wave which had a really simple circuit (diode and a cap and a resistor??) and an analogue switch on each to turn them on or off.

Well, it's one thing to charge whatever you want. It's a free market.

It's another thing to blatantly misrepresent the specifications of the
machine.

The seller should appreciate that sort of education, lest someone
buys it and discovers the truth. At that point, he's liable for charge
backs and PayPal disputes.

Ditto here. There was a guy selling a piece of gear and I was trying to send him some advice to help him sell it, and he got disgusting with me about it. I don't message people on eBay anymore because of that crap. Sellers are too cocky.

Analog = referencing an old analog synthesizer

Dinosaur = referencing a giant reptile extinct for millions of years

The seller is brilliant by all means!!! This could spawn a whole new series of renamed synths.

Monopolysaur
Obiesaur
Buchlasaur
Memorysaur

What do you call an Anasaur's dog?

Funny I took it to mean:

Anus - You know that part of your rear end
Sore - Sore from the screwing you just got for spending way to much on an ebay synth

Say it with me - Anasaur

Hey man, don't go laughing at me, I was just trying to be nice

Don't get me wrong, I mean, my first instinct was to say "Are you f'ing kidding me?!!!"

I get SOOOO mad at some of these morons, but I tried to kind approach first. Call me crazy.

Ebay shoots crack everyday and not just meals times. I've been severely turned off by ebay. I use to like going there to check on gear, but now everyone and their mom seem like they are in a business on ebay, trying to sucker you in to think what they are selling is a good price. And they keep it there until you see nothing but it, and can think nothing but that price. That's how they work. They play on your weak strings and if they get bites they like to play games and raise the prices, drop them a little and raise them back up.

All you need to buy is the 'ebay business strategy courses' to learn how to "control" the situation or price setting.

What's sad, is ebay business sellers have set the "Market Value" of synths ( not to my in my mind though ) and it's not the place it use to be when random sellers would list things and you could actually get a good or fair deal. Now it's one big poo poo platter.
