ms-20 mini overheat

HI everyone!

I recently came into possession of an MS-20 Mini (wicked bit of kit btw), over the last couple of days iv been using it in childrens workshops to make space and laser sounds, this basically involves cranking the filter up to full resonance and modulating the cutoff quickly to create a fast moving zapping sound, today after about 10 minutes (in two separate sessions) it cut out and failed to produce sound, so i turned it off. on the first day it fell out of the car onto concrete (some else being careless with it ) but was fine for the two days of sessions which followed.

Im assuming this was just the filter becoming "overheated" as it was a very intense use of the filter, i have previously used it for hours at a time and its been fine however I am a little worried so i was wondering if anybody knew if this was normal for an analog synth or whether its something i need to get someone to look at.

Re: ms-20 mini overheat

It's not the heat. At least in my experience I've never heard of a filter over heating and giving out.

It's that it fell out of a car.

Open her up and look for any loose wires/cables/belts that need to be reset.

Re: ms-20 mini overheat

I'm guessing but, could be the heat sync has been knocked off kilter, might even be touching the case.
I wouldn't use it with kids until you've had properly checked out.

Nice synth that don't deserve to catch fire.

You can do it.

Just open her up and take a look around. A lot of times, you'll be able to see what's wrong.
