well, rolandman1, i don't like you very much, but i'll respond to this
anyway. i am in the process of doing some mods for the 606. yes, i think it
can be done, but i'm not sure if you need to have some sort of
amplifier/buffer or not. in the schematics there's something in the block
diagram that says mono/multi. is that a monostablemultitimbralvibrator?
(i've heard of those but i don't know really know what it is. just kidding
about the timbral part, BTW). anyway, i'll be getting a sacrificial 606 soon
and i'll make one trigger out and then have it scoped to see if it's cool
(or see if the 606 blows up). if it is then i can tell ya where to solder
to, to get those trigger outs (i already know exactly where to go). 

would ya think you need to have it either/or like the individual outs on the
606 or could you do trigger the 606's sounds internally, as well as
something externally? or is that why that mono/multi thing is in there?


three things to remember about me:
1) i'm not a dj
2) i have no intentions of becoming a dj
3) i'm not a washer and dryer repairman either
