Well it's not every day you get to meet George Soros.
I have Mr Soros and the Institute of New Economic Thinking to thank for two magnificent conference dinners and 56 presentations by economists and other thinkers of the highest calibre.
During some of the less interesting moments on the first day I sketched out some mods for the Yamaha CS01, which is a synthesizer I have still yet to obtain so I will try them out when I have one. During idle moments on the second day I sketched out some mods for the Korg X-911 and tried them out the next day. Unfortunately they didn't work.
I'm not entirely sure why they didn't work, but it seems to have something to do with the X-911's original purpose as a guitar synthesizer rather than a keyboard based synthesizer. None of the presets have release settings above zero, which is what I was trying to change. I'm going to try a similar mod on the Korg Sigma along with increasing the range of the Synthe VCO detune knob, and hopefully confirm that the basic idea does work, before returning to study the X-911 in some depth.
