Circuit Overview:
     A digital synthesizer which utilizes special processing chips designed to support Casio's Phase distortoin synthesis architecture.

Service Tips:
     Don't look for the backup battery. It's not there. This thing takes 6 D cells which backup memory. Temporarily memory is backed up when it's all powerless, by a large capacitor. It's on the smaller power supply board.
