I don't particularly care to go create an account over at SP Forums to post this... since to register you need an existing user to give you a password. So uhm... dropping this here in case anybody cares, or it is useful for other types of pad repair for other gear.

Anyways, I took a bunch of pictures and wrote up a blog post on fixing up a Boss SP 303. Some of the pads definitely lost their conductivity so I figured I'd repair it with some CaiKote 44. So far so good.

i wonder if those fixes work on the capsule membrain squishy pad buttons on the old yamaha gear. IE: the rm1x, i believe the older MCs, and the su-700. Some people just take them out and solder ordinary tact switches.
