Re: DIY Mutable Unsuccessful Builds

Hello lovely people of MuffWiggler! New plaits build. I am not getting audio out of the unit. When I power the unit up there is a quick pop but then it goes silent. Anyone know what could be the culprit of this problem? Thanks in advance.

Re: Make Noise Pressure Points vs Verbos Mini Horse

What I like about the Verbos is that it has extra parameters per key.My understanding is that it has a pressure and y position output per key and a summed output while it additionally has a default 0 -10v already implemented. On the other hand, if I get the pressure points/brains and a sequential sw...

Make Noise Pressure Points vs Verbos Mini Horse

After much though I am looking for a new keyboard interface for my modular. I had a pressure points/brains combo and I am now debating whether or not to buy the pressure points/brains used again or get a for a mini horse. What do y'all think?

Re: DIY Mutable Unsuccessful Builds

Hey guys, New Plaits build. IC2 is working but I am getting one light with a constant intensity and a second light ondulating at the same time instead of just one Led light through all 8 Leds. Any ideas as to what would be the cause for this? I also soldered the 2.2uf caps near the DAC incorrectly. ...

Re: surface mount-- solder chips first

So I found a place, now what is the best format for the stencils? Stainless steel ? Polymide Film , is it better to have it framed or unframed? whats the best thickness to work with?

Use two matched BC547
Thanks will do! Anyone know where I can get transistor sockets? The ones I have seen are really expensive. I am also trying to find some sockets for the ring modulator's diode section. Is there a correct spacing for this or should I just jerry-rig one up?

I figured out most of the parts for the panel. I am looking for a suitable IC for the CGS64 pcb's dual transistors. I have looked for 2SC3381, 2SC1583, MAT02, LM394, SSM2210 in a couple of places to no avail, any ideas where I could find a replacement for it? I'll post some pictures soon!

any place that makes circuit boards will make them. You dont need them framed, it's easy enough to kludge something if you're only doing one board
I do not think there is any here locally where I am currently living, so I have to look through the interwebz for these sorts of resources.

Re: surface mount-- solder chips first

Huh, I've always soldered chips last. Especially since I usually douse everything in flux when I do the chips and even after I wash it the board stays sticky. A couple months ago I started getting stencils, placing everything by hand, then reflowing it all at once on a reflow station/heater, only u...

Hello!

I am trying to get marbles build working, but the y,x1,x2,x3 part of the circuit is not changing voltage values. Anyone have a clue as to what it might be?
Any help would be greatly appreciated!

New plaits build, the LED status won't stay on, the switching mechanism works. Also the FM trim is always active, Is this normal? Does it change model but no LED indication? What do you mean with the FM trim being active? Correct, it changes model but there is no LED indictation. If I turn the FM t...

Eurorack Panels

Quick question! Anyone have any references in how to design their own panels? I have been using Eagle to design some stuff but I am fairly new at this and could use some references on how to get the faceplate done.

Re: Quicksand panel build thread

So,I am finally getting around to building this panel. I am having issues sourcing out the correct toggle switches and the lens cap cover for the leds. Anyone happen to know where I can get the part number so I can order some from mouser or somewhere else?
