Re: have you ever wondered what integrated circuits look like?

The Grid. A digital frontier. I tried to picture clusters of information as they moved through the computer. What did they look like? Ships? motorcycles? Were the circuits like freeways? I kept dreaming of a world I thought I'd never see. And then, one day... ...I got in. very nice, isn't that Neur...

Re: Erica Synths Multimode VCF (3320) Step by Step

1. Set Cutoff pot to minimum and check TP3 voltage: should be 0V. The same 0V should be on both sides of XS7/XP2 connector (left side of R26). If not, check Cutoff pot. 2. While nothing is connected to the Cutoff 1 CV jack, check TP4 and TP5 voltages: should be 0V. If not, check VD3/VD5 diodes if c...

Re: Erica Synths Multimode VCF (3320) Step by Step

Really nice deep dive, ixtern :tu: I’ve built three modules, and while two of them work nicely, the third one is giving me a real headache :hmm: The symptom is that the output of pin 1 on the TL072 is constantly high (8V), which in case of the LPF means it’s fully closed. I’ve swapped all threeIC’s ...

Re: performer (or is it per|former?) sequencer build

Finished my first Performer last weekend and I must say I enjoyed the build even if I ended up hand soldering it :) Only hit one snag on the way; a bad joint on one of the 4148's. Was gonna add it to my modular grid rack but couldn't find it. Any reason why it's not up there? https://v2.pxl.se/i/0bT...

Re: Kawai K3 won't boot, looking for firmware

I’ve only had (and updated) the K3m and the K4’s, but afaik the fw is different between the keyboard and rack versions. I might have the fw for the keyboard somewhere.

Re: Post pics of your euro setup!

About a year has passed since I built my first module. This week I moved from 2x2x84 into a 3x126 from Erica. I know, not really an upgrade in terms of space, but looks more decent :D I’ve built all modules except for 2hp Euclid and the 2600 VCO from Steffcorp. Still consider myself a freshman but a...

Re: DIY Mutable successfull builds hall of fame

Pique and Braids - my first two Mutable builds. Both went well and was up and running on the first try :banana: Only hiccup was getting the Vagrant VS up and running. Took some time and cursing on the way :confused: https://v2.pxl.se/i/0by.th.jpg https://v2.pxl.se/i/0bF.th.jpg https://v2.pxl.se/i/0b...

Re: Neutron sound Dust of Time.

Quick question about the caps. A few of the suggested ones in the Google sheet BOM are rated at 2% and 5% tolerance. Is this an absolute must or can I use 10% caps that I have at hand?

My apologies if this has been discussed before (couldn't find any mention though).

Would love to have a dedicated hobby space but for now it’ll have to coexist with the work-workspace (even though it’s slowly taking over ;)

Re: BUILD THREAD: MISS 10 VCO 2.0

I inherited this half built / half slaughtered v. 1.0 (I presume). Would be cool to fix it, but I ponder if it's worth the time, or if should pick up a 2.0 PCB for a clean build....oooor, just let it go to the € heaven? :hmm:

Re: Erica Synths DIY Multimode VCF w/ AS3320 IC

Could anyone shed som light on the potentiometers for this one? They're only specified as 100k in the BOM. What I can't figure out is if they're type A or B or if it doesn't matter.
