Title: Middle C acting up
Post by: Jakobberry on September 11, 2020, 06:37:30 pm
My Microbrute is maybe 3 or 4 years old and I'm starting to have an issue.
The middle C key is acting sketchy. I only get sound when I hold the key down. If I just tap the key I don't get any sound.
There's a small delay before the sound activates, but it isn't a consistent delay. Sometimes it doesn't activate at all.
I've taken it apart and cleaned everything with IPA but that didn't help. Tried switching around the rubber pads as well with no luck.
Has anyone experienced an issue like this? I'm up for some soldering if anyone has an idea about what's going on.

I was so disappointed when I got my MicroBrute with the Middle C elevated. So I bought some crazy glue and fixed it.
