ive finally done it
i've finally created the
ULTIMATE DX7 SOUND ?????
a lot of bad things that happen in the world have been prevented, or at least mitigated, by the fact that they have to actually be implemented by people, and achieving anything meaningful, good or bad, is hard work, at least organizationally, because it requires some degree of cooperation and agreement, coerced or incentivized or otherwise. but what if those costs just went down, to basically nothing?
seeing the huge lever that advancing technology affords someone, the immense scalability given to their power in affecting the world, and the basic mathematical premise that it is easier to destroy things than create things, even by accident, because there are many more undesirable or disordered states than desirable or ordered ones? it doesn't make me feel happy
like. knowing that, when my parents are elderly, i will have to deal with an AI calling them up with a perfect recreation of my voice in order to scam them, and having to deal with this, possibly repeatedly, and also explain it to them? that's one thing i'm thinking about technology. that's one thing which gives me the current opinion i have of technology
moths will be delighted that there appears to be a net on this schematic called LAMP
the voltages for all the chips like the 5 and the 3.3 and the 1.8 are all derived from the 7V so why bother finding the test points
the 7V rail is not connected, the 48V rail is at 0.8V, the +15V rail is 1.2 V and the -15V rail is -0.5V, further confirming the original report that it "doesn't work"
@jk also annoying is that it asks you to restart - not the computer, but *just* windows - when changing color depth. You could say no and it'll still change it, but apps that were already running would sometimes render incorrectly, and icons would be in the wrong color depth, for example.
no wonder this thing can't run off firewire. probably just the heat coming off all the linear regs alone is too much
apparently we need the following voltages: +7, +48, +15, -15, +15, -15, +1.8, +3.3, +5.0 and +2.5, which appears to essentially be "every voltage"
