Re: How do I know when I need grounding?

Passing audio signals to and from the Coco via the 1/8" connectors will have the ground connected automatically.

For connecting the Coco to the eurorack or Moog via a banana cable, go through the format converter box and connect the ground of the format converter to the Coco ground jack.

Re: Strymon NightSky

Am I the only one who isn't excited for this? I'm not either because Big Sky does more of what I want. This thing looks good in that it's probably the best interface for a shimmer pedal we've seen yet. That's so important since the parameters have to be dialed in just right for a good shimmer sound...

Unfortunately the the mounting holes on the panel don’t quite align with the predrilled holes of the Bud AC-423. Any suggestions are more than welcome!
Nice panel!
Sometimes you can still force a self tapping screw in there when the hole's a little off.

Re: God dam’it ....another addiction.

I had looked into 500 series DIY but it seemed not that beneficial in terms of cost savings. Perhaps I was looking in the wrong places.

Re: God dam’it ....another addiction.

I'm just about to go down the 500 series rabid hole too but as said earlier it's not as deep as modulars. Two or three different flavor compressors and eq's is all I'm really wanting. Choosing the case/power thing seems a bit daunting. Maybe I've read too much about this subject but there doesn't s...

Re: Troubleshooting advice for borked Pro One

I don't know the schematic of this but my guess would be some of the op-amps are fried. Try carefully cutting just the power supply pins (often pins 4 & 8 if they are dual op-amps but don't assume that without checking) of the DIPs. Then once/if you've found the guilty device you can repair the res...

If it's been fried that badly, there could be places that the circuit board itself has been so scorched and carbonized that it will conduct as well.

I've got a Pro One here that has experienced some sort of traumatic overvoltage event. It's an early version with PCB mounted transformer.

Re: Who's given their wooden buddies a fresh rub down with some of that Hope's Tung Oil??

Yeah, I'm gonna hafta recommend against exposing these instruments to solvents and dust. If you wanted to do this right, you'd remove everything that's not wood and I can't imagine that'd be worth the effort.
