RE: How to make bump free drones in EDP?
i have an older oberheim edp with loopIIIv5 and had this problem.
sadly, i changed several things and am not sure which fixed it.
1. replaced regulator chip with lower heat version.
2. cut pin 5 of U12 as described here:
3. changed R30 and R10 as described here:
(this should have no effect on the loop fading)
4. replaced the crystals with some supplied by andy ewen.
(i think this is probably what fixed it.)
i believe it was working well after this, but since then i have
also installed loopIV...
note that if you have a newer gibson model, it should have all
of these already. (though, i'm not sure about the crystals)
hope that helps...
