Ok folks, I am absurdly close to finishing this thing, but I can't find the correct SP3T switch? I can either go with the one on the mutable BOM and pay 16$ or the one on the anookum BOM and wait 7 weeks. Has anyone found a suitable replacement?

EDIT BEFORE POSTING LOL: Newark for the win with the weird parts selection!

@skookum Am I too late for this? I'd like to get PCB/Pots for Anookum/Anushri (thinking about case from Adrian). I'm located in Stockholm, Sweden. Cheers :hmm:

I have a set of boards and front panel if anyone needs them.

Well this is it. It took way too long but I have a small amount of these sets available. If there is more interest than sets I will make more.

The expander breaks out and brings to a 4hp panel 6 different buffered outputs.
-VCO, from the analog core.
-DCO, square wave from the MCU
-Envelope
-Individual HP, BP, and LP filter modes
Also MIDI in and out.

Soldering is 0805 passives and SOIC chips with through hole headers and jacks.
Documentation is forthcoming. Really just a BOM and wiring points.
Limited amount right now, it was a successful prototype run not requiring any changes.

Skookum, are you still building those expander modules? I recently got an Anookum in a trade, which came with the PCBs for the expander module. I'm interested in having them built up because this thing rules. Do you still have panels?

I wanted to drop in and give some props to Skookum's Niklas- I was looking for some diagnostic tips for getting my build running, and he was extremely helpful- his assistance going WAY beyond that would be reasonably expected...

With his help, I worked it out, and now I'm enjoying playing this fun machine.

Nice work Niklas, thanks again! :bananaguitar:

Received my panel for the expander. Very, very nice. Building the Anookum has been an entirely pleasant experience.

Cheers Niklas from "down under". :guinness:

Yep, nice easy build; it's awesome to have direct access to the extra outputs.
The only trouble I've run into is that I get nothing from the DCO output, not even a blip on the scope. I've triple checked continuity/voltages on everything; I'm starting to think that the Anushri must need to be set up in some particular way which I'm not aware of.
Anyone have any thoughts?

Hey! Sorry to hear you are having problems with it.
Are you getting a DCO signal at the MCU on the main unit, but not at the expander output?

MI build doc

This is very useful in shaking out issues, and shows the points to check- good luck!

LOL @ me
Yeah, turns out it was a patching issue. It's possible to set the VCO tuning such that the DCO essentially turns off...
The PDF manual has a lot of good info, but some of it is kinda buried.
Oh! Almost forgot: thanks a million skookum for all the PM help!

Do you have any expanders left? I am definitely interested.

Soon! My parcel has been in the hands of customs for some time, it will hopefully be in my grubby paws soon. :goo:

The website says ANEX is sold out. Will it be offered again?
