Adding proper CV/Gate inputs to a Roland MC-202
For the final MC-202 modification in my little series, here's how to add proper cv/gate inputs. In the video I highlight the differences between the internal inputs (which are quantised by the cpu) and the modification.
This mod requires cutting traces, so a little extra care is needed. Be extra careful when working on the gate part since there's not much to solder to around the CPU. You'll have to scrape off some of the mask on the traces and wire direct to them. Take your time on this and be sure you have done it correctly before applying power to the machine.
