hey, first post here. glad to see there's a space recognising the power of these boxes.
SP-505 was my first piece of music hardware in 2000. i've neglected it over the decades but today opened it up to clean out all the garbage and see if i could sort out some buttons. Enter had snapped but reseating it with super glue has made it functional. Jog wheel is really smooth after cleaning all the crap off it. Coated a thin layer of graphite paint on the pads which has kinda helped.

Only issues now; crackly pots, some SM cards seem to have failed, classic right RCA issue and the Part and Stop/Play buttons need some hard teasing... any advice welcome but i can see there's already a lot of really useful resources/discussion here.

Sorry for the ramble, but the damn sequencer on this thing is from a different planet compared to anything else i use. Incredible. As for the time/phrase stretch sound... here's the first beat flipped.

really looking forward to going further down the hole with this machine.
