Little-LFO to be phased out

Post by Synthbuilder » Mon Mar 02, 2015 4:43 am

The last lot of Little-LFO boards to be manufactured are with me now. Once these have gone I will not be making any more.

The Triple-LFO 5U module has effectively been replaced with the Dual-LFO module so there is now little demand for the Little-LFO PCB. However, if you do want one, then now is the time to get your board.

Any more Little-LFO boards left? :hmm: :lol: It would be nice if you were able to have those available for people who want to slip them into DIY builds, like adding a normal'd LFO to a larger module etc. I mentioned it in this thread:
viewtopic.php?p=3094392#3094392

Some suggestions that you probably already thought of: :mrgreen:

* Make it compatible with both +-15v and +-12v supplies

* Drop the MTA-156 power header to make room for a 10 pin eurorack header. (Making a DotCom to MOTM power adapter is pretty trivial these days for a DIYer?)

* Add at least one, preferably 2, mounting holes to make it easier to secure the PCB when the pots can't be mounted to the PCB

* I suppose you could make it even smaller using SMDs and call it the Littler-LFO? :hihi: But, I'm old with fuzzy vision and shaky hands so personally I'd prefer through-hole. :hide: :youkids:

None at all. The module was effectively replaced in 5U by the superior Dual LFO.

I am planning a 4HP wide Eurorack Little-LFO at some point this year though which may fulfil some of your wishes. It will, however, be surface mount - but, like my other new Euro modules, it uses the larger sized components for us oldies.
