Here for the gear
 

hi all, i don’t have any surface mount components but i have some resistors. for the clave/rim shot audio level mod. it says a 56k to 100k resistor on r422. does this just mean any resistor within that range? and will a non surface mount resistor work for that?

hey! there's a bit of an update on the rim level fix - described here: https://maffez.com/?page_id=160

replace r513 witrh a 82k resistor - smd is not necessarily needed - you can use through hole and bend the legs a bit to fit to the solder pads - just make sure the new resistor doesnt stick up too much (i.e. does not touch other components)

hope this helps

Wow, I must have been in a bad mood that day. Sorry! Didn't even remember saying that crazy stuff. I spent too much time in NYC traffic back then. Shut down did me some good.

Anyone figured out what components make it sound so weak, lifeless compared to a TR-808/Yocto?
It would nice to be able to upgrade a handfull of key components that Behringer substituted without care of good sound.
