i read that thread. but it doesn't seem to say anything about the pss-80, only about some newer pss keyboards, the slider type fm ones, which seem to be incompatible.

so i was wondering if anybody has any experience with the pss-80.

if i'm reading the orientation of the diodes on the keyswitch pcb correctly, i think i will need a 'scan low' configuration - like for most yamaha keyboards. but since i'm no electronics expert, i wouldn't mind hearing a second opinion. i will need to know which configuration to use before i order, because i'm planning to take advantage of your assembly service...

Ok. Maybe someone will have one they can examine. I don't have one on hand, so I can't say for sure--sorry.

Just started MIDIfying my PSS-80 last night. Definitely looks like a scan-low configuration with a 6/6 keyboard matrix.

Once I've got it up and working (only got as far as soldering the UMR last night) I'll confirm the details. Have also taken a photo of the circuit board too so I'll mark out the solder points and upload that as well.

Cheers

Default pss 100

hey did you get anywhere with this project? we have been trying to install the UMR into a pss 100 but are getting re-triggering / miss-triggering?

the type of symptoms when the keyboard scanning is too fast...

any help would be much appreciated the pss 100 is a great synth would be a shame not to be able to get this to work.
