Has anyone seen this?

The Phonic Taxidermist on circuitbenders.CO.UK. It's a clone of the Maplin Voice Vandal, which I'm unfamiliar with.

Looks super interesting to me. It would be pretty simple to put behind a panel.

I'd been waiting for this thanks for the heads up

I'm in their email list and ordered yesterday... Guinness ftw!

Same here. I ordered one as soon as I saw it.

So its basically a ring mod mixed with a delay?
Crashlander42
It calls it a chopper, but it does sound ringmodish. Looking at the schematic I'm not entirely sure how the band selection switches work, but the chopper looks like it's just running the signal through a CMOS counter.

The delay on it sounds nice though. It'd be nice to have a delay in my system that isn't a PT2339

Excellent! Thanks! That's a much better explanation.

Cool i ordered one as well. If anyone comes up with a panel design please share. thumbs up

I ordered one also. It looks like it could be loads of fun.
cane creek
ill order one once they get some chips in.
Zaibach
I also ordered one today. The HT8955A delay chip is available at

http://uk-electronic.de/onlineshop/product_info.php?products_id=1016&o sCsid=8831693374990f692d6f949f5027eb9e

for 6,95€, and I just ordered the RAM at ebay. Ready to go once the board arrives! hyper

They still had the chips when I ordered yesterday. For any US people Smallbear has the chips in stock too.

OK, so how do we go about adding CV to this?

Ordered this yesterday at lunch time - just arrived! Super fast!

This is fun!

Also interested in a panel if anyone is making one!
oberkorn
ordered one as well

What of the parameters would you make CV-controlled? As I have two VacPak-PCBs I have to make a decision sooner or later.

hey there, i ordered most of the parts for the build, but where can i get the right potentiometers in the EU, especially the 470k and the dual b100k pot? Any ideas for a noob?

Musikding.de has dual potentiometers that have the right value, but they are not for PCB-mounting. A 500k would work as well, if you can't find 470k. There is always mouser.de

I can't wait until the PCB arrives!

500K may be easier to find than 470K, which I imagine would work fine. I personally like bitsbox.co.uk, they have a good selection of pots.

I would think VR1 and VR4 (chopper pitch and echo rate). Also, it would be worth experimenting with replacing R31 with a pot, because this is actually effectively a sample rate control for the delay chip, and so you might be able to get some interesting grungy bit reduction stuff going on with that, just to add to the distortion.

thanks guys. i thought about a 500k, but wasn´t shure if it works. i found a dual pot via mouser, but they sell them only in a package of 1000 pieces. a bit too much for this pcb... maybe these here will do it?
