Re: Tayda what is the consensus?

Thinking of buying a load of machined IC-sockets from them, anyone ordered any of those recently? I found that their regular sockets are unreliable. Or so is my experience atleast. The machined ones are great so far. Not a single issue yet. Haven’t tried the regular ones but I agree the machine one...

Re: KNIT - BOM

Follow up q; 4mm 22uF 35V polarized caps seem to be out of stock everywhere. Would it be possible to exchange them for 22uf 25V or 18uF 35V and which one would be be the preferred replacement? If I read the schematic correctly they sit between +/-12V and GND (C4/C5).

Re: The 2021 Show Us Your DIY Builds Thread!

Kicked off the new year by finishing a pair of Antumbra Grid’s. Straightforward builds, but it took a bit to figure out flashing the code and getting the fuses and lock bits set.

KNIT - BOM

I'm trying to source the components for the KNIT module but I'm puzzled by a couple of them. I'd appreciate if someone who's built the module could share a light on these for me :hail: C54 - C61 are labelled ESD. From what I understand 0.1uF caps would work for them. C2 doesn't mention any value, on...

I finished off the Lyra-8 with the flounderguts panel and expansions.

It was a fun challenge to wire it up in such a way that key components were accessible for service, and the main board could still be removed.
Soo beautiful :yay:

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?

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...

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.

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...

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.
