Default Midi retrofit for Lowrey V-100 synth

Hi - got a great deal on an analog string synth - the lowrey Micro Genie V100
also known as a JVC KB500.

i'd love to midi this old girl up - any tips on what kit to use and how far i can take it in terms of note access/drum access and any parameters that could fall under the MIDI spell.

basic triggering of notes via midi would be a minimum goal.

thanks in advance!

Hi jahreed, welcome to the forum.

If the synth has keyswitches wired in a matrix, the UMR2 might work. See this article for more information:

Otherwise, you might be able to accomplish some triggering using the MD24.

Every synth is different, so you can expect to do a lot of research, and then some trial-and-error to get things working. The info I can provide will be limited since I don't have experience with this model.
