Re: Ginkosynthese Seeds

Just finished building mine and am finding myself with questions: - Is there a way to change the frequency range? The pitch range using the knob goes from "low" to "sorta mid." But no "high" to speak of. - How is the quantizer set up? - What's the story on the "stability mod?" Does everybody need th...

Re: Intellijel Quadrax

Got mine today, it has the 12bit DAC. From reading this thread, my impression is that any issues with that DAC have been mitgated via firmware, yes?

Is there really any point in swapping out for a 16 bit board at this point?

Re: Need help troubleshooting Fonitronik Triple Vactrol Reso...

So, in the exciting conclusion to our story, I gave up on that board and ordered a new one. Didn't rebuild the control board, just the IC/vactrol board. Now it works, but what I find weird is that its sound is significantly less...resonant than the original. I compared them back to back in this vid:...

(Sigh) Found the problem. Not a component issue, though: - There's a jumper at the very bottom of the board. Isn't discussed in the build guide, but it's shown in the picture of the module on page 13, so I put it in and installed the jumper. Turns out, doing that cuts off any sound output. Take off ...

Should I probe with just the bottom board connected to power, or with the entire module assembled and signal patched to the Input?

Do you have an oscilloscope ? I think you will not find the solution only with voltage measurements.
I do, yes. What should I be looking for?

Interesting tidbit: I swapped the ICs because I wasn't getting any output from the bottom one. It clearly has volts on the ins, but nothing on any other pins. The top one does have volts on the outs as you can see. Swapping made no difference (the bottom IC in the top position does output volts, so ...

Ok. Bad power supply.

New power supply, and I have 11v at the correct places on the ICs. Now I'm really puzzled at the lack of output.

How would I know if the ICs were fried?

Hmm. Now I have power over the entire board, but at pin 4 of the two IC sockets it's reading 23v. Don't really understand how I can have more than 12v there....

And needless to say, the module's not passing audio at this point.

I seem to be having build issues. I get 12v to the first diode, but then mv readings after that. Both + and -. I replaced the diode, no change. I've reflowed everything, no change. Not sure how to diagnose this. https://www.muffwiggler.com/forum/userpix2/32647_img_8655_1.jpg https://www.muffwiggler....
