Repair Roland SH101 Analog Synthesizer simple midification

This time a customer wanted to have a simple midi to his Roland SH-101, not the more flexible tubbutec modification. He wanted to include this as invisible as possible. I added a tiny midi pcb inside the Roland SH-101. The CV input jack is now deactivated and used as midi in. The HOLD jack is used as a switch using a relay. Insert a plug and it plays to midi, unplug and it plays normal. I also discovered that the pitch/bend wheel was broken. Fortunately I could glue this successfully with epoxy glue. Here`s a quick session I made with this new midi connection and ableton live.
