Re: I want to know a few things before I buy yamaha genos

Hmmm - that's odd: neither the German manual for the Genos nor the English manual contains any information about the mains voltage(s) needed 8O :!:

Re: Korg Poly 61 Freezes

Just did a search for the battery needed: it's a 3/170DK (3.6V/170 mA).

But in this synth it has to be a NiCad type - not a NiMH! The 'charging process' for a NiMH is different! If one uses a NiMH instead a NiCad it may damage the battery... 8O

It needn't have any sounds on it-I need ONLY the TestMode!...
