Re: BUILD THREAD: 18-channel vocoder

The documentation was missing information about how to connect the anodes and cathodes of the front panel LEDs. I've corrected this omission. See Chapter 4.5 in the Assembly and Tuning Guide.

Re: BUILD THREAD: 18-channel vocoder

I sent out an email on June 6. In short, use RFS1317-104KL instead.

Re: 18-channel DIY Stereo Analog Vocoder

Just a quick update: The assembly guide now includes PCB component placement views (Chapter 21). They are useful in case you need to troubleshoot your populated boards because once populated, you can't really see the component part numbers such as R1, C2, etc. As always, you'll find the link in the ...

Re: 18-channel DIY Stereo Analog Vocoder

Save the junk mail. In 20 years you can present it to your children and grandchildren and show them odd advertising, such as people with masked faces. I am looking forward to the time when we start embracing each other again, look back, and say "wow, these were some rough 12 years"...

Re: BUILD THREAD: 18-channel vocoder

Re Q1: good suggestion. Let me see how I can integrate that in the documentation.
Re Q2: yes, you can use 1/4 W resistors. For more details on size constraints, see here on Page 2, "Resistors".

Re: 18-channel DIY Stereo Analog Vocoder

Status update: Of the twelve interested parties, ten have sent me the completed bundle request forms, some of them need clarification. Only two are missing. Besides, one additional person contacted me to get on board.

Re: 18-channel DIY Stereo Analog Vocoder

Hey gwpt, very cool! Thanks for posting the photos and the nice comments. Pando, if you look at the bundle request form and the BOM spreadsheet, you get a very good overview of the total cost. The cost shown by gwpt is pretty much what you have to pay if you do not have some of the parts already ava...

Re: 18-channel DIY Stereo Analog Vocoder

Great, we now have twelve builders who have signed up. Tomorrow I'll send out information on how we will proceed. I will continue to accept more people signing up until the next step has concluded but that window of opportunity will probably close within a week or so.

Very cool. We are making good progress. Three more builders are needed. Once we have one more, I will inform everyone about the next steps.

Re: 18-channel DIY Stereo Analog Vocoder

I've decided to wait no longer. Over the last year, I've had about two inquiries per month asking for a second run. I've sifted through my emails and contacted them all and within a day, 5 people already replied with a strong interest. So if you were waiting for this, now is the time to shoot me an...

Re: 18-channel DIY Stereo Analog Vocoder

I used to get email notifications when new posts were published. This is no more the case and I cannot find an option at muff's that let me change this. Is this no more available?

Re: 18-channel DIY Stereo Analog Vocoder

Sorry for my late response. Frankly, I haven't been hanging out in the forums lately as there have been virtually no posts for several months. I do plan to offer a second run of PCBs/bundles and had a couple of months in mind before proceeding. So please stay tuned and keep in mind that getting in t...

Yes, keep C41 unpopulated. The photo that shows the channels from the backside of the vocoder is not a good reference as this version of the vocoder is populated with different versions of the channel boards that underwent a number of refinements.

And the packages are already on their way. :banana: That is correct. I've dropped them all off at the parcel shop today. They should start shipping tomorrow.
