Synthcube offers a kit as well as built up 266 modules in several formats

Hi,

do you have 266 pcbs for sale still?

Hi, Roman! Could you, please, specify, what's the height of Bulcha style PCBs and a panel (was it 7"?)?
Thanx!
amnesia
would be great to get complete kit for buchla.

Hey roman, glad to see you around again wink. Quick question, for the 4006 which prefix did you use? Or anyone else for that matter. Does it HAVE TO BE CD? I'm just blabbing with some other people about this right now, so was curious if any old prefix will work ok in this build. I'm almost finished my version 1 builds. thumbs up


i did use CD4006 and HEF4006 and both worked good

rev2 PCBs would have some changes:
- errors corrected (in euro and 5u)
- opamps replaced with TL07X
- PIC-version of the noise chip added (besides the original one)
- brighness of the leds reduced
- ribbon cables are changed to headers
- 5U version would be on 2 big pcbs (not 1 big + 2 small)
- buchla panel layout has changed a bit (so rev1 panels won't fit, but i will also make repress of buchla rev1 pcbs for the ones who have original panels)
- i'm also opened to the offers of panel-designs for euro

i'll set up a dedicated post next week as find some time


Hey just curious what resistor value you used to reduce brightness of LEDS? I just noticed this post and can still easily swap out my LED associated resistors. Which resistors are they in fact? Just want to get the right ones.

Oh @spaceNbass, I'll measure mine when it is all together if no one replies to your depth question.
jnlkrt
anyone can give me a rough number on the depth of euro version? how shallow will one get here at best?

...trying to generate some interest in Buchla panels for Rev.2!

it seems that i've sent all orders and have 2 Buchla and 5 EURO sets left, all 5Us are gone. i do not sell them until i'm 100% sure that all orders are shipped, but you can make a reserve.

thank you everyone for participating, bergfotron complex vco is the next project and i expect to have protos in 10-15 days.

feel free to start with 5U and buchla and please give me 2 more days to confirm everything about EURO.

Couldn't see myself on any lists so PM'd.

going to ship all the remaining orders in 9 hours

after counting all missed orders and PCBs it seems that i still have for sale:

1) 4 Buchla sets
2) 5 euro sets
3) 1 5U set (this one is on hold)

once again - if you're not in 3 shipped lists - please PM me, i could probably miss you in my mailbox (though i've double-checked everything today)

all my future orders would be done to a special email, so it would be easier to find people.

if you don't find your name in a list or quantity is incorrect - please PM me, i could miss something

going to finish testing EURO today and upload BOMS/SCHEMs then. DO NOT start the assembly of EURO version before that, it has a small but important issue with power, it has to be corrected before you solder anything.

Roman,

did you receive the Toppobrillo PCBS and blue Buchla knobs that I sent to you a couple months back?

I'm still waiting for my set of Buchla 266 PCBs. I haven't been on the forum in a while, and haven't given it a lot of thought in some time; But it's been a long time now, and I haven't received any replies to my PMs.



roman_f wrote:

boards are huge (especially 5u one) and there are 3 of them
if you compare to say toppobrillo's 281s - 266 boards are 6 times bigger in buchla format, 8 times - in 5U format

Amen to that. Plus Roman has put in features such as slotted cutouts for jack mounting tabs which would have been expensive to do. A lot of commercial projects just have round holes for tabs which soak up solder and don't hold the jacks in the right position while soldering. I was sceptical of the price myself but for what you get I think these are a bargain.

i think the price is fair, based on the size of the boards, the variety of formats roman's making, the relatively niche market, and the complexity. i spent a couple days once taking a crack at laying out this project and gave up... was more than happy to pay roman for his efforts. i'm sure he'll wind up making less than kopecs/hour...

next shipping batch is on monday-wednesday (9-11th of july)

there are a couple of very minor mechanical issues with 5U and EURO PCBs - i'll describe how to correct them in a BUILD topic.

Excellent News ! Thanks for all your hard work Roman !! SlayerBadger! SlayerBadger! SlayerBadger!

Spanking news! Never mind the post office saga. Over here they keep changing where I pick mail up from. Last year it was a small local post office/store just on my street. Year before it was a postal depot 20 mins away. This year it is a supermarket 15 mins away. Next year it will probably be the sausage kiosk or the library. In the distant future they will probably ask me to go to the airport or docks to collect the mail myself.

Sorry this is making you run around so much. Logistics are not as fun as designing and building! Thank you!

Great news! screaming goo yo

hey!
i've shipped out a part of the PCBs and will provide the tracking numbers shortly

next shipping batch is on friday or monday
local post offices do accept international small packets only with clothes and papers (weird!) so i have to travel to the international post office, that's far away from me

I just saw the poll on one of the other threads.. is the choice SMD or vertical? I've not ever done SMD soldering, so I'd likely prefer vertical resistors. But, I'm sure I can so smd with a little practice. Ive got steady hands

Thank you everyone for ordering! We're somewhere near the initiating the press of the PCBs.

the preorder goes 18 hours more and then i close it. PCBs are ordered next week.

i will order some extras for people who didn't participate but would like to get some later. the price of 5U would be $150 thought (due to small amount of PCBs ordered and and HUGE PCBs size)

i got the v1.1 (second) test pcbs on friday, assembled them and all i can say that now it works just PERFECT - all mistakes from v1.0 are gone, integrator is a native 266 slew, not the part of 208 music easel anymore. so -1 Vactrol.

Buchla's BOM is final and confirmed, feel free to order the parts using it.

5U BOM would be here tomorrow and 266 BOM should be ready next week.

use the Euro boards with the MOTM/5u BOM. This will adjust the appropriate components properly for the +-15v.

i have changed the integrator (from 208 to the original 266 version)
due to this and some mistakes of the first test-pcbs i have decided to order new test-pcbs before main run
this is very complex and expensive module and i want to be 100% sure that everything is good

i should have them less then i a week, so the preorder would last for a week more.

I've built two LPGs with Silonex 32SR3 they are very fast compared to the VTL5C3! I don't know whether this make them more suitable for a 266 project or not thus I'd prefer to the VTL5C3.

Paypal'd for buchla style pcb kit! screaming goo yo
roman_f
so, i got the test-pcbs, assembled, tested and now ready to take orders.

there are 3 kits offered:

- 5U format kit - $130
- Buchla format kit - $120
- Euro format kit (24HP) - $110

each kit contains 3 large pbcs - 2 for the components and the 3rd one for holding all the hardware (pots, leds, jacks) - no wiring would be needed.
3rd pcb in 5U and EURO also carries components for voltage shifts, so they are adapted for the cv/power standards.

3rd pcb of 5U is really big, so the price is higher, buchla's is smaller and euro pcbs are the smallest

boards are connected together with 2 ribbon cables
cables and sockets are included

worldwide shipping would be $10 per order, for any amount of kits
the paypal address is in@btwn.us

please DO NOT pm me - use my email for the communication - in@btwn.us

after you make an order - please email me with the description of the order, your full shipping address, you real name and your muffs nickname (if you are on muffs). do not forget to mention the format you want to have.
please title the subject of the email as "266c"

please also make a comment here if you order - it would be easier for me to find you later.

i will set up another detailed Build Thread with boms, drilling templates, links to get rare parts and panel-makers offers.

all technical details are discussed in this thread.

thank you
