    clean it with distilled water, and let it dry by itself...don´t use it for about one week.

    what ever you do, just make sure that you dont use it for like a good while, the longer that it dries out the better

    Possibly a stupid remark but in any case make sure you dismount the faders if possible so you`re only washing the faders and not the pcb

    sorry bro...that shit happened to me a while back with my Korg MS2000 (red wine...and good times).

    Its now mostly ok (couple keys are unresponsive but other than that...the sounds are all in tact and the basic functionality is there)

    Research will reveal its not the water that does the damage, its the electricity and water...also the rust if applicable. Anyway, if its it possible dismantle the shit and let it air out for a week in a DRY place...and hell while you have it dismantled, why not start the arcade mod?!


    (side note) I feel that the lack of variety in emoticons here prevents me from adequately expressing my emotion. What the hell am I supposed to do...use the King's English?
