Re: MN3011 BBD Reverb Help

Where are you buying "new" MN3011? They haven't been made for many years. Yours may be some completely different chip labeled to look like one.

Very cool project, thank you for sharing it! I've never used a 3D printing service before. Do you have any recommended vendors?

Yes, the Minifoogers are also discontinued. They now appear in the legacy products section of the Moog site along with their big cousins.

The Exploding Shed ones are nice. I have zero regrets about getting it. They don't seem to ship to the United States. Anywhere else to buy them? They don't seem to ship to the US, but I emailed them and they were happy enough to do so. Shipping was surprisingly cheap, though I can't remember exactl...

I am sorely tempted by a JU-06A, because both the 60 and 106 'engines' sound very good to my (admittedly well worn) ears. I have a question lodged with Roland UK via my dealer: can I load my JU-06 patches into a JU-06A? And will they sound the same on the 06A's juno 106 engine as on my JU-06? If so...

Toroid (toroid.com) makes very high quality toroids and can sell you one-offs.
Other good transformer companies like MCI and Hammond also make toroids, but I couldn't see an online ordering system (although I know MCI will sell you individual ones if you give them a call).

Korg Volca Modular! I don't mind these little synths at all. In fact for DIY types, it's easier to integrate with prototype projects. I'm actually going to add a little mini breadboard (maybe will need to cut in half) to my Werkstatt to have more connections and can also put some little trimmers on ...

I don't have my Xio any more to confirm, but I'm pretty sure it does not act as a USB host, which would probably be necessary for it to output DIN MIDI.

The Midiwidget is incredibly flexible. I was lucky to get in as a beta tester. One of the options back then was a relay card, which I used to close the trigger buttons on my DR-110 drum machine. This was better than a MIDI to trigger because I could control the accent function as well (which besides...

Nothing! Just added MIDI.
The sounds are really crisp, great impact. I loved them just as they sounded once I adjusted the trimmers to taste.

However, I did buy a second board, so may get more creative with that one.

Yes the proof of concept works. Thank you for investigating, zaphod betamax! I have to admit I never even thought about controlling with CV/gate, since I don't have a modular setup. I've been using MIDI only so far, which doesn't give me the option of just leaving the gate open. I think I'll invest...

I believe Boogie's plan is to have the SMD boards pre-populated:
"I will appologise up front, as I will not be offering all PCB's in kit form, but rather, as many of you already know, SMD populated. "

I don't have any interest in soldering hundreds of parts per voice whether through-hole or SMD.

I think the biggest limitation of the Monotribe is the lack of any envelope release stage. I was investigating disconnecting the software envelopes and adding in an analog envelope. However, I have learned that the oscillator tuning routines run when the gate is not on, so a hardware ADSR envelope i...

I love the original layout. I would not want to compromise function to fit a certain size. You're designing a synth inspired by one of the biggest and baddest out there. It's going to be big! If making a standalone unit, there's no reason to be constrained by rack dimensions. Maybe the sliders could...
