drone noise synth with 20 patchpoints


curious to hear this, is it from one of your available PCBs?

The insides are the CreepCluster & an old version of the Noise, which has a 4070 "ringmod" in the patchbay . I'm going to add this in again, when I order new pcb's. it gives great results!

The creepcluster section is modded with an extra analog switch routing (you can add 2 with the current pcb. ) fun part is that you can route noise though it, and change the "pitch" / switching speed.

sduck, I'm embarking on a similar sized setup as yours. Currently shopping around for bus boards. Are those you used in your nice build commercially available?

Sure! I got them and the associated hardware from digikey - here are the part numbers links:

The copper bars are 3 feet long I think, but they're easy to cut to whatever size you need - I used a dremel cutting wheel. Then you need the wire - I used 14 awg stranded from home depot, it's a bit stiff to work with, but can be managed (having a good wire stripper is a Very Good Idea). I also used Ox-gard on the wire connections to ensure a problem-free long contact life. The power inlet is by schurter, mouser part number 693-4304.6058. I'll let you pick out PSUs, although I got them from mouser, can provide numbers if wanted. One thing I'll say about having dual 10.2 amp supplies - while they're fairly future proof, they're also HEAVY, and are fairly noisy, vibration-wise - if you use them, put some insulation between the PSUs and the cabinet (I need to add some). It doesn't get into the modular signal, but is audible in the room, although I find I don't notice it once I get some sound going.

Sure! ...

Thanks sduck. Although your post were very informative I'm truly sorry for the misunderstanding. I meant the PCB busboards and should have mentioned I'm slowly moving forward an old idea and are building 1 meter long skiffs with exsternal transformers for each skiff placed in a seperate skiff.

Nearly finished with the template for side panels, — some light sanding and hopefully accurate drilling still to do. Separated into two cases each 1 x 0.52 meter case will have 3 skiffs (588HP) and fittings for two standard 1U rack panels.

So I found some SAD512D chips that I had forgotten about that had been reclaimed from a Klark Teknik DN34. Awesome I thought. But how do I know they work. So I built a slightly modified clone of my favourite flanger, the Boss BF-1, that was repurposed to take either a SAD512D or the original SAD1024. Flanger's are an excellent way of checking behaviour of BBDs since problems with insertion loss and age related noise are easily heard.

It fits nicely in a Hammond 1590XX case - although, as you can see, I spared no expense with my no frills Dymo labelling.









If you do have a spare SAD1024 knocking around and are wondering what to do with it I have made the PCB available to purchase.

IT'S ALIIIVE!!!! I'm one switch short of getting the touch controller working (and haven't calibrated the 208 yet), but everything seems to be working as it should!! SlayerBadger!


that's fucking nuts. awesome.

Oh! They're from http://www.genusmodu.com - and get ready for some sticker shock. They may not be worth the bother for a smaller system.

Thanks! Guinness ftw!

ouch, those are serious money. Interestingly I find in they're noise comparation tables a standard 1oz busboard already do better than any noise figure I expect to get from any of my modules audio out. Although I can see one would want to strive for full 24-bit DR as the LIBB claimes these are out of reach for me. But I desided to upgrade to better caps on all psu boards and maybe on BB I deside to buy.

My first five modules, four from kassutronics and simple headphone amp with three inputs. Nothing much but enough to get some textures/drones.



Panels are from formulor. They look good but are sadly too easy to bend (1,6 mm thick two color) so I will have to find an alternative.

Build a small eurorack PSU for my orphaned Moog skiff this weekend and also put together a Kickall to test it hmmm.....



The PSU in slightly more detail (with some glaring design errors on my part):


It runs of the standard Moog wall wart and connector board:

It doesn't get more basic than this. Six passive attenuators. Inputs are normalled so I can have multiple outs of the same signal at different levels. No PCB just direct wiring.

Here's one I managed to finally get done.

Built most of this stuff in 2019, exept two of the vcos and the cabinet,
some of it still needs to be calibrated help
also almost done with a 808 clone, and working on a 303 smile

sduck
Got one of these going, after a false start...

OMG I actually finished something!! (for values of "finished" that mean "fully functional but not necessarily in an enclosure or anything)

I use Formulor as well, but always the 3mm thickness, works fine. Made a balanced output module, with XLR connectors, and these have a higher insertion force so I doubled up the material, 6mm in total, no bendiness.

Current progress after about 6 months, all modules built from kits by me. Have about 4 left to make, then I'm going to start working on the custom hinged case.

some of the modules are going to be fitted into the rack blanks, like the mult and maybe the output.

Not module builds but little breadboard lepers to give me a hand me when trying to breadboard stuff:





Jarno
Not a fan of breadboard myself, but those look very useful, nice work!

If you put things like integrators on there as well, you can build your own analog computer! grin
