Many days I find that it’s the little things. I’ve been meaning to do this for a while and as i was at the hardware store today i happened to remember this plan so i finally got it enacted.
The Oberheim DMX and DX have hinged lids for adjusting certain sound parameters, In the case of the DX you can lift the lid to change eproms to achieve different drum kits and percussion. In the case of the DMX you can change the pitch of each voice under the hood and also interchange voice cards as seen here to achieve different sounds with different sized eprom samples. Every time i am under the hood on either of these i find myself wishing that the thumb screws used to secure the lids had gaskets to keep them from damaging the paint on the lid.
So i got some rubber washers at the hardware store to put in between the screws and lids to protect them better.
It’s the simple fixes!
