[sdiy] Juno 6 voice problem

Hi Travis,

If the VCA is being kept high you need to check the control voltage
being sent to it and see how it compares to the other voices. TP6 will
check IR3R01 envelope chip is working, when you say tp6 "goes high"
does it also go low again? If not then it may be a problem with the
gate signal heading to the env chip.

If it does go low then I would work backwards from pin 1 of the ba662
ic24., until you can find a difference to the other
voices. If there is no difference at pin 1 then your ba662 could be
the problem.
