PSS 680 direct output

aetios has brought a Yamaha PSS 680 to the space and he wants to add a direct output to the FM chip in this synthesizer. He has no idea about electronics but luckily a cool guy on youtube has made a complete rundown of HIS mod: (I can't get the damn youtube embed working)

This seems alright to do.

Materials needed:

  • transformator for isolating ground
  • shielded instrument cable
  • a jack socket
  • some 100 ohm resistors

tools required:

  • soldering iron
  • hole drill

I want to test whether the direct output (with no transformer) is any good? (probably not, but i might learn something!)

current next step: acquire shielded instrument cable. (can probably cannibalise one of my patch cables)
