    Hello great post , i will be interested about the unofficial 2.08 code for correcting the All Note Off message (#123) . Is there a post about it ? Is there any way to get the eprom files (i can burn eprom) ?
    My S10 send a All Note Off Message each time i release a key and this was kind annoying with some synth .
    Thanks

      I am aimimg to get the 2.08 version done this summer. I will try and locate the all notes off code and correct it.

  • Hi, please keep me informed on your progress. I don’t know how to burn an eprom but can really use the mod if you have an extra one. Let me know any cost involved!

    Also… is there a way to do crease the ram and addressing that?

    Great work!
    Will this work with an MKS-100 as well? I think they share the same display. Really looking forward replacing the burned out one on mine.

    Very exciting reading.
    Any news on the updated display routine?
    I can burn my own eproms and would be happy to test this out 😊

      Hiya, I have bought a new EPROM programmer to test the code change out this month. I want to sell the S10, so I have to change the code!

    I found a Display that works without needing any code changes.
    I Purchased a ERM1601DNS-2 from BuyDisplay.com. The first 8 characters are at address “80” while the second eight characters are at “C0”. I tested it and it displays all the proper messages. I used a series 42 ohm resistor for the LED backlight and I needed to wire in a 20K ohm trimmer for the contrast connection (I disconnected the V0 line from the main board because the display was too dim.) on pin 3. I might add a 1K ohm trimmer to the backlighting in series with the 42 ohm resistor as well so I can make adjustment to the backlighting level as well. I ordered four displays and it cost me less than $20.00 US. BuyDisplay.com has a large variety of colors. I went with black with white characters.

      Thanks Tim, I was wondering whether this display would work. I will buy 10 and offer some kits online. Maybe a little daughter board for the trimmers. Best Regards Rob

    One other thing. You will need to replace the display mounting screws to “M2 x 6” as the LCD display is a little thicker,
