Many thanks Softfin.

I see now that i didn't explain what I did in the previous post. What I did is separate 1.6mm all the jack sockets of the PCB. Achieving a total distance of 15.8mm.

About the midi... I don't understand why, but sometimes it hold the first note, and the gate rests opened. I must reset from the keyboard. I'm studying now the s1 editor in order to update the software. Lets see if it solves the problem..

good job man! least you solved that issue. who knows what wowa is up to these days. website hasn't been updated in almost a year?, broken links, no new modules, no contact, etc. at this particular moment, what a waste of engineering/design synth talent

so I don't mean to kick a dead horse... but I'm considering getting an S1 mkII serial 006 and I'm really worried having ready over this thread a few times. Crying or Very sad

The 006 S1mkII is working fine I'm just not sure if this problem could start happening on mine and then I'm screwed.

Sadly I know nothing about fixing gear and wouldn't even feel safe taking the screws out.

any thoughts?

I guess it would depend on the production year of #006 S1mk2. One thing for sure is I wouldn't be using the cwejman supplied patchcords with the unit.

thanks! Well it turns out it's a regular original S1.

I'm not sure if the patch cords I got with it are the originals. They are light grey colored, I haven't noticed any problems with the unit but I haven't tried patching anything yet.

the synth sounds amazing, one of the best i've ever used. I'm glad I wasn't scared off from buying it, I love it!

Very Happy

Hi I received a question about the point of the sockets.

1)If you want to buy a S1MK2 my advice is, buy a S1MK2 with the new holed PCB

2)Patching a PCB like one that I have with jack plugs longer than the depth of the jack socket you WILL short the PCB. Maybe early or maybe late, its the time that the tip of the plug wear out the thin film that protect the PCB under the sockets. ( the two sockets that fault first in my S1 didnt have the thin plastic film, the other jacksockets had the thin plastic clearly marked by the plug tips)

Best Regards.

I have a S1MK2 that was bought in august 2008. I bought it second hand. I can confirm that every socket has a hole bellow it.

Thank you Sound for sharing this information. Thank you very much.

Also I had examinated the VCEQ-3 serial number 26 which the manufacturer sent me only one month later than the S1MK2 and in its PCB there is a hole under each jack socket in the way that the tips of the jacks plug can not touch the PCB.


I've seen a new Cwejman module and within a month is impossible to find a solution, to design and to produce such PCB. He knew it was a faulty board when he sent it. He misled you.
