If you have clips on the DMM leads there's no need to touch while powered up.
I'm never going NEAR that thing again with a multimeter after this. I do plan on replacing every chip I so much as even touched (6 in total and as Jim said they are cheap). I did s brief re-cap of the area I was farting around in last night. Once these chips get here it's in the Synthesizer God's hands. I really hope the damage didn't make it downstream. This is what I'm looking at so yes I'll be praying: U454, U455, U462, U463, U406, U407[email protected]/?
