    Hi all, I just recently acquired an Akai Deep Impact bass synth, and it's very nice for what it does. There are two things I could wish for: one is more memory slots so you can store more than nine presets, and the other is some access to the guts so you can load sounds into it, maybe hook up a MIDI controller to the parameters, that kind of thing. I have two questions, one general and one specific. The general one is, does anyone know where I can get a schematic for it? I'm pretty good with electronics, and I'd like to see what the circuit is all about, to find out how hard it would be to interface into it. The specific question is, I need to dial up a Jon Lord organ sound for the beginning of Space Truckin'. Does anyone have any favorite settings for this purpose? Any other thoughts or comments on the Deep Impact?

    Ouch! Methinks I've been dismounted in yon joust. I shall search for this grail, and if I find it not I shall fall upon my sword. :)
