The Motorola DSP was changed in later Yellow Qs (V2) to 56362. This is why the newer expansion (V2) will not work and will damage the V1 mainboard of a Q or any XT/XTk mainboard.


Would I have to open my yellow Q to make sure which one I have or can that be determined otherwise?

Yes, the only way to verify your mainboard is to open it up. I have opened up several Qs thinking I had an early version and only upon inspection found it was a later version.

We only got 20 people that replied to the e-mail list with 19 requests for version A and 6 requests for version B. This is the same thing that happened last time - good interest at first - but then a sharp decline in requests a month later. I already PMd everyone at electro-music - you can try PMing on the other forums to ask them to declare their interest at the email address - I don't have a checklist of who mailed me vs usernames on all the forums and I am not sure who is actively monitoring our posts. If you have more ideas, that would help - let me know.

I have not yet had the time to open my yellow Q to check which version I would need. Sad

i wonder how much it would cost to get the 50 made. i bet if we put them up for sale they would sell quick enough. would be tricky trying to guess how many of the a's and the b's need making though. these kinds of things are hard to orchestrate whichever way you approach them.

I think we are talking the $12-$15k range for 50 - to do parts, pcb layout and have someone in china bulid it. The tricky part is how much Encore charges for reverse engineering with their labor resources and testing. Also - some extra parts down on the mainboard have to be swapped sometimes depending on your synth and this does require soldering skills - I don't know how many of us are confident in our rework abilities.

Just sent an email. I want to buy an XT expansion. I don't own the XT yet, but I will buy it later and then expand it.

This is awesome! I really hope this project succeeds.

Also just sent an email for my MWXT, hoping we can get enough people to make it happen.
Cheers!

Activity has been dead since the last round of requests, but we got 5 new ones which still puts us at needing 20 more to take this to the next step - this is the count at waldorfqexpand@gmail.com only as this is the most consolidated and independent of forum posts to get a REAL count. So, Still taking requests for demand. Smile

I own a Micro Q and I'm very interested in purchasing this upgrade whenever it is available. tried to email "waldorfqexpand(-at-)gmail(-dot-)com", but never got a reply.

Is it installable on my version of Micro Q (see the specifications below)?
When is the ETA for this unit?
What's the price?

My micro Q specifications are:

Hardware: 111
Board #: 0148
Prod. #: 141005000264

I'm very keen to put my name forward for a board for a rev 3.1 Microwave XTk.

I've sent an email to the address.

I used to own a XTK30, board revision 3.3 I think, and when I sold it, I kept the voice expansion (V1.0)
A few months ago I bought a mint boxed XTK (!) and today finally got the time to test-install the expansion.
I must say I was scared when I saw the board revision (1.1)... but all I had to do was remove a jumper from the rightmost pins of the connection header and bolt the expansion on. It works!
