    I did a similar project years ago and wrote it up on my website:


    It’s a cool synth, rich sound. Plug your headphone in to the sampler input and shout at it!!!

    I just got my W-30 working with scsi2sd 5.1, which doesn’t have a case. Looking online, cases are so expensive, I’m thinking it’s almost better value to get the 5.5 like yours which comes with a case. Having a blast with this keyboard, thanks for writing up the LCD replacement steps, that seems like a good project.

    Where did you buy the SCSI2SD 5.5? What do you mean by “the drive is powered from USB”? How? Can you explain and/or add pictures? The SCSI2SD has been portioned into 4x 80 MB drives etc. How? What size SD? Sorry so much I don’t understand and I have too many questions.

    Hi, can you possibly email me the type and source of the encoders you used? I used the Bourns PEC11R-4215F-N0024 encoders as found on llamamusic (I think), and oddly enough, this only works for the cursor dial: the value dial only decreases (even going clcokwise), only to get stuck at 0 value… Restoring old W30’s can be a hassle, innit 😉

    The detailed documentation for LCD replacement specifies a 10 ohm 1 watt resistor (I assume this is brighter?). Did you use 1 watt also for the 100 ohm resistor or get away with a 1/4 watt 10 ohm?
