Help with Ensoniq MR 61

Hi, I have an old Ensoniq MR 61 keyboard, but I've been having some small issues with it.

Firstly, the keyboard has a Fatar keybed, and I noticed that the aftertouch on the white keys is less responsive on the end of the keys than at the middle of the key. Is this supposed to be normal? The aftertouch values at the middle of the white keys are possible to max out, whereas on the edge of the white keys it is impossible to go past 30, and the aftertouch caps out at the middle of the travel before going back down to 0, which is quite strange. I suspect it is a hardware problem but I'm not sure on how to fix it.

Secondly, I could not get key aftertouch to work. The keyboard runs O.S. Version 1.28, and when I go SoundFinder > Edit > PressureMode > Key, the aftertouch does not work even on the inbuilt sounds, and only channel pressure could be detected when I connect it to the computer.

Thirdly, the L and R outputs of this keyboard do not work, and hence I use the phones out when connecting the keyboard. Is this problematic or acceptable? Do I have to turn the master volume down to as low as I can?

Any input would be much appreciated, thanks in advance Smile
