Poly Evolver repair (preferably in EU)

Poly Evolver repair (preferably in EU)
« on: January 12, 2020, 03:36:36 PM »
Hi,
My Poly Evolver Keyboard has one voice broken. It's a physical damage - cat urine :( PEK is now after professional PCB cleaning but one voice is still dead. Can you recommend a good service for that? DSI is not eager to repair it and they are in US. I'm in Europe (Poland). It's also hard to get parts. Do you know if it's possible to get a replacement voice chip from standard Evolver?
Thanks in advance. I'm depressed and need help with my all time favorite synth

Hi,

have you tried refreshing the OS and and Voice chips after the cleaning?

Worth to try i guess.

Hope this helps,

Hi again, unfortunately no luck with this either.. Anyone knows if regular Evolver could be a donor?

Not to be obvious, but I would think sequential/DSI support could recommend a path forward.  I' curious how you make out, in case one of my PEK voices ever fail.  I'd be lost :'(.

It is obvious.. but my help request is being reviewed by their support staff for a very long time now. That's why I'm seeking help via forum. I'll start a new support thread just in case..

What do you mean by hive in this case? Sorry, English is not my native language.. Does it  mean that this topic also bothers you?
