I would look at the CV in / out jacks first.     Maybe one has a switching jack that is faulty

Tx for the response. The synth is seen as a device by the system and my DAW sees it as a midi device on channel 1 which is how I have the dip switches set. I can send midi and it will play midi sounding only if I have a patch cable from kb trig out to trig in.
_This is not it's intended function_ It would sound notes using only midi previously. I did not need to make any other CV connections to play notes before.
You can see others operating this synth as intended in many vids on the internet.
So, it seems to me that the electronics that convert midi to CV are working but no longer connect to the analog gate input.
Is this the appropriate list to ask for help with this?
Is there a likely chip that decodes midi to CV?
How should I best approach this?

 All, I have a Behringer K-2. It's a copy of a Korg MS-20 with midi, too.
 The midi has stopped working. If I put a patch cable into the KB input I
 can hear a pitch and it will change accordingly to the key pressed on
 midi KB.

Check the MIDI-address: at the back of the Synth are DIP-switches. You
must set them according to your keyboard. Check the synth with other
keyboards, and the keyboard with another synth (or a MIDI-Monitor
running on PC/Laptop)

 Without the gate patch cable I hear nothing?

No gate, no sound ;-)
