Re: "Best" Banana Color Scheme for New Format?

I think panel color has to be a consideration. I built quite a bit using an expanded version of the bugbrand color scheme with 8 colors. While I found I could patch faster some of the more specific ins and outs there are a couple of modules I often mispatch because they are laid out a little differe...

Re: [AVAILABLE] stroh optogate lpg pcb, panel, kit frac

The ultrafade is wonderful. It's not that complex but it is quite big so you need either a deep case or a wide panel. There isn't really a simple vco. Oddly enough I've been playing around trying to learn pcb layout and made a version of the stroh pico vco the other day that will fit behind 1 frac. ...

Re: [AVAILABLE] stroh optogate lpg pcb, panel, kit frac

I think you're screwed! (Sorry :hihi: ) Whoever designed that panel made a mistake. Maybe you could try something silly like epoxying the jack to the panel though I don't know how well that would hold up. Personally I would just attach the panel with one standoff and leave the other hole empty, it's...

Re: Thinking of going back to school for electronics - worth it?

Right - an electronics technician program was kind of my idea, though I need to do more research to differentiate between that and an EE degree. I live in GA, and GA Tech of course has a few classes specifically on synthesizer circuits, and that piqued me. Aaron Lanterman who teaches those courses,...

Re: [AVAILABLE] stroh optogate lpg pcb, panel, kit frac

Eek! I forgot about that, I repaneled mine. With such a small pcb you could get away with just one standoff but still that’s kind of fucked up. The kits used to come with excilitas vactrols too. Synthcube really should change their website if they ran out. From what I’ve read I don’t think the xvive...

Does anyone who has built this have a picture of the populated pcb that they wouldn’t mind sharing? It would be a big help. Thanks. Here's one of mine. I wish I had socketed the vactrols as the ones in this one are kind of wack. I keep forgetting to buy some new ones, maybe now I'll remember... DSC...

Re: Time Machine malfunction

Cool!

I've never been able to tell the difference between NOS and Xvive in my time machine.

I prefer the original Blacet aesthetic, I think it's a little silly to change it, plus with a 15hp panel the same pcb's could then be built for frac too. But I guess that's a McMansion in euro?

Re: Ryk M185 Sequencer - per step repeat and gate mode

You could probably reflow the switch without removing the panel, the main pcb can be pulled off, but first you should use a continuity tester and check that the switch itself is working.

Hello Sorry to hear you are having problems. Does the CV control for stage 7 work in Hardware Test mode ? If yes, then check the voltage on both ends of diodes D6 & D7. These supply the voltage to the stage 7 switches, and should read about 4.9v when stage 7 is selected in hardware test mode. ryk T...

I just finished building one (really nice kit by the way) and am having problems with one of the steps. Both of the sliders for step 7 seem to be stuck in the uppermost function (1) regardless of their physical position. The soldering looks ok under a magnifying glass but I reflowed it just in case....

Re: Finishing building the Thomas Henry SN Voice

I didn't include a volume attenuator on the one I built and have never felt the need for one but I think most of Thomas Henry's own builds were standalone rackmount devices where a volume knob makes more sense.

Re: Help on building a quantizer

Michael Barton has designed a number of quantizers which he provides schematics for. It's probably worth taking a peek at his site. If you want to program on a pic chip you could even buy one of his pcb's and write your own code for it to start trying things out. http://www.bartonmusicalcircuits.com/
