I've posted a short article, with pictures, on the Chroma and Expander from the book Museum of Synthesizer Technology, by Martin J. Newcomb.

Yamaha FC-7 no luck

Vincent Russo [21030433]

Tried hooking up a Yamaha FC-7 to the volume and effect jacks on the back of our Chroma this weekend and didnt get any function. Anyone one know if the FC-7 is not compatible pedal or other ideas ?

The specs for the pedals are in the Performance Manual:

Was it someone on the list that grabbed it?!

Voice Card Repair

Edward Chen [21030674]

Hello and Greetings to all!

I recently acquired a Rhodes Chroma S/N 21030674 [see Chroma sells on Ebay for $595 above] and am glad to have joined and be part of this group. I currently have a problem with 1 voice card constantly failing autotune no matter which slot it is inserted into. Upon each power up, autotune, 'split-set 50', it has failed so I have come to the conclusion that this particular voice card is defective.

Is there anyone on here who can kindly help in the repair, troubleshoot or service voice cards as it would be greatly appreciated since I am not tech savvy and would just like to get my Chroma functioning at 100% (of course, services will be compensated).
