UPGRADE - 79.00
Avatar filters have a upper frequency limit of 11khz!
This frequency response upgrade is similar to the 2600 filter upgrade
extending the cutoff frequency range from 11khz to 28khz. This upgrade
also replaces some critical components in the signal path. Your
filter sub-module is removed, tested, upgraded, re-tested and re-installed
into main board "C".
AUDIO PATH UPGRADE
V2.0 - 99.00
This mod replaces critical signal path components
in the synthesizer section of your Avatar with audiophile grade
components. Low end response is improved resulting in a more accurate
wave shape. This mod now includes a high-pass filter bypass switch.
Even when the high-pass filter slider is all the way down, it's
still removing quite a bit of low end from the signal path. This
mod used to be called the "Low end wave correction mod"
in the early days of CMS. High end response is also Improved.
LFO FREE RUN SWITCH
It's impossible to get a slow moving sweep on the
LFO while controlling the Avatar from a remote keyboard. When this
switch is in the free run position, the keyboard will not restart
the LFO as with stock units.
ADSR TURBO SWITCH
This mod installs a switch in your Avatars ADSR section
that engages the turbo mode speeding up the time constant on the
ADSR to attain 2600 type percussive envelopes. This upgrade now
features a 3 position switch with an extra slow mode for extended
attack, decay and release times. Also available for the AR generator.
Stock Avatars have their portamento circuits hard-wired
to the guitar section. This mod rewires the portamento so that it
slews the keyboard cv input.
POWER SUPPLY REBUILD
Certain critical components in your power supply have
a shelf / working life of 20 years maximum. It's probably time your
power supply was rebuilt. These units are getting very old, so if
you are serious about your ARP, you should get the Power Supply
