Re: Circuit Mounting Preferences

For those using the 90 method, are you using a combination of horizontal and vertical pots and mounting with an aligned column of jacks/pots or just wiring all the panel parts on their own direct to the pcb? I use self made L-profile brackets made of sawed-up and drilled plastic cable duct :mrgreen...

Re: MS2600NG, the German 2600

Several performances? Twice as of yet, to be precise - during an annual modular synth meet near Idar-Oberstein where you have to bring a (at least semi-) modular synth to attend. We'll (him and me, that is) will both be attending it again this year on the last weekend in May. "Then came the last da...

Re: New Syncussion with MIDI and Silent power - VIDEOS

Yep... might try that sometine (I have an o-scope of course - my SDIYing would be impossible without one :)). For the time being, I'll just stick with what works and use MIDI if I want longer patterns or melodies.

Quoting a popular TV show/character: 's all good, man ;)!

Re: New Syncussion with MIDI and Silent power - VIDEOS

But I'll also try using MIDI and see if that works. Yep. Works as it should. Just recorded the sequences in question :tu: . Note to myself: Just use MIDI when sequencing the SY-1M with the BSP, and everything will be fine. Luckily I built the Syncussion version that has MIDI included :mrgreen: :tu:...

Re: MS2600NG, the German 2600

Looks like an Arp 2600 with the addition of 1/2 an Arp sequencer, 2 additional envelopes, a wavetable VCO, multi-mode filter, 2nd VCA, and MIDI. Exactly the additional modules I'd want to add to a 2600! You're right. I have seen and heard this instrument in live performances by the developer/builde...

Re: New Syncussion with MIDI and Silent power - VIDEOS

what are the voltages on the CV and gate? Is the gate inverted? I tried various CVs from low to high pitch (~ between 1 and 5V), and the BSP gate voltage is generally set to 10V - but I can of course double check. Gate isn't inverted. As I said - the Syncussion works perfectly with the Korg SQ-1, a...

Re: New Syncussion with MIDI and Silent power - VIDEOS

I just encountered an interesting, strange and as of yet unexplainable phenomenon with my SY-1M: I had set up a few sequences in a Beatstep Pro as well as a, let's say, bongo-to-marimba kind of sound on the SY-1M. When connecting the BSP to the SY-1M via CV/Gate, all that comes out is a really quiet...

This is my first order, not sure about either JLC or Seeed. Did you have good luck with JCL? JLC always did a good job for me. They offer several shipping options.

Re: Resistance Value

Those are diodes, not resistors. If there are build instructions, a BOM or other instructions available, there is a chance that you will find something like "all diodes are 1N4148" or similar.

I'm using this for power header.
Those would indeed be better off with 1 mm holes imho. However, these "box headers" with thinner pins can easily be soldered into 0.8 mm holes (personal experience ;)).

Re: Getting ready to print pcb

if you reduce your part holes, make sure your parts fit inside. the square pins on headers take up more space. this is a good point, the headers i'm using are a snap in fit on my radioshack breadboards.. maybe I will leave it them all at 1mm for right now and see how I like it when my pcb arrives. ...

I made all part holes 1mm since this is typical for a breadboard and used bigger pads for DIY.
1 mm is OK for wiring, but I'd use smaller holes (0.8 mm will do) for part holes. Easier to solder, imho.

I had considered it possible that the problem was located somwehere at the switches (faulty switch, miswiring, whatever). Apparently - from what I read in your previous post now - that seems not to be the case, however.

Do you have an oscilloscope so you can monitor the signal path? That would be very valuable as to find out where the problem actually lies.
