Re: Soma - LYRA-8 DIY Kit

Check continuity on your headers between control board and main board along the bottom near the touch pads. Specifically the PCH1 PCH3 PCH5 and PCH7. If the LFO section is working for delay its just not getting to the voices properly for some reason. I'd start there. If that is all good, head back t...

Re: Moog Memorymoog sucessfully cloned

So...... I guess there will be no "open source" version ??.. I don't see why there wouldn't be, luismarka seemed to be leaning toward releasing all his files. Synthcube offers PCBs and kits for lots of open-sourced things, they will likely just be facilitating the production. Also it doesn't seem l...

Re: What's wrong with this picture?

Magnets would be a cool way to mount modules.

Now if I thought about this for another 30 seconds it clearly isn't a good idea.

But I refuse to think about it, therefore magnets are a cool idea.

Re: Solution to clogged hole with solder

I have a cheap set of micro drill bits and a hand held bit holder. I don't like to heat up the board a lot when I'm desoldering stuff, and sometimes the surface tension is so high that it's really hard to get that web out. +1 for micro drill bits. The one I purchased was listed as a "Pin Vise". Wor...

I believe the voice cards are separated by 10mm spacers.

Re: Deckards Dream General Build Thread

Thank you for checking! If it's missing on mine and yours, then it was likely a part that isn't meant to be placed. I asked you to check to see if my PSU card was possibly missing a component. No need to worry about this little guy, it's by design I am assuming!

Re: Deckards Dream General Build Thread

Which missing smd component? Is your board rev2?

If you turn it on while pressing shift, do you still enter into usb mo...

Re: Deckards Dream General Build Thread

Silly me. Turns out that this is normal as the 3.3v for the sliders is on a different rail on rev2. So now I got the firmware loaded and the OLED is working. When I enter in a voice card (just a single one), the +5V led is off and -5V and -12V leds on the psu flash slowly meaning there must be some...

Re: Muxkicer ribbon cable - confused

10-16pin is standard, some modules need 16-16pin. From the looks of it, the Muxlicer needs 10 pin. So yes, should be fine. 16 pin goes into power supply, 10 pin goes into your module. jebusrice is correct, the polarization is the red strip. It just means that it has to be inserted in the proper dire...

Re: Deckards Dream General Build Thread

I finally finished the SMD on the voice boards, quite the slog, but a beautiful slog. I started creeping around looking at the rest of the SMD work, and I noticed there was a component missing on the PSU board. It doesn't look like it was ripped off, so I'm assuming it was left out for a reason. Her...

Re: Soma - LYRA-8 DIY Kit

I'm having an issue with one of the channels on my build (oscillators 3 and 4).

I followed the circuit as best I could and compared to the othe...

Re: Assessing module builders / builds if you have no DIY knowledge

My two cents would be go somewhere with some kind of guarantee, and test the module (if possible) before purchase. Parts can be faulty, and even the most experienced solder-er can make a cold joint. I'd be more worried about how responsive they are post sale, and how their "warranty" works. Generall...
