Someone just gave me a Böhmat PM1 which is a 1U box with midi inputs and audio output(s).
I think it can be used as a synth but I haven't really been able to find much information about it.
It does show midi activity when I connect a signal to it but for the rest it is silent. So if anybody
has any experience with it and can provide some more information about it that would be great.

(The person I got it from hasn't used it himself nor does he have any info about it)

thanks jan Smile
so far I've only been able to find some old forum posts from people who are as clueless as I am
and ome ebay listings. I did find a pdf which has some info but it doesn't really say anything
about how to use it, only a bit about what it does. (page 3)

I googled too - and found about the same .. that's why I asked Martijn - a co worker who used to do synth repairs in a previous life .. he knows about some old stuff but not really about organs as it turns out.

I would try sending it a midi clock and a start signal, then proceed to try notes 1-127 on every midi channel.

Translated from Dutch: "It is a "accompaniment machine". But possibly it can also be used as synth. There are the same Yamaha chips as in the Dynamic 12/24, and that's a true 4-OP FM synth and sounds like a clock (sometimes literally).

But ... those chips (YM2203) are 3-voice FM plus 3-vote SSG. So theoretically, they may only use the SSG piece (before the 80's retro home computer sounds). But I do not really expect that. The 12/24 uses the SSG piece as far as I do not know, except maybe for the "percussion" in organ sounds.

For the moment, he goes on and responds to midi, but because I do not know what he expects in his midi, I'm not far beyond that.

Correction: The 12/24 are used either. There are noises in white noise, for example. They certainly do not come from the FM piece."

I'd read that forum post (I am actually dutch Wink) and I want to look into the 12/24 since it is similar, so might give me some clues.
I hadn't thought about a midi clock and/or start signal so I'll see if I can figure out how to do that and if that makes any difference.

thanks Smile
