Re: Befaco STMIX - 4 Channel Stereo Mixer

I changed out the 072 for a OPA2134, didn't change any of the surrounding circuitry but I presume that isn't necessary as it's just a bunch of pots and summing resistors going into the first side of the opamp, then to the other side as a booster to regain the volume of the sum (unity with feedback r...

Re: Time for capacitors to discharge?

Big caps in tube designs can hold current easily 15-20 minutes and alot longer, as far as I understand depending on if there is a current drain in the system, some resistance that slowly (or quickly) drains the circuit after power is shut off. Wouldn't really know what to look for (big resistor to e...

Re: The 2020 Show Us Your DIY Builds Thread!

Really like that befaco attenuator redesign. I always thought the jack placement on the original was what was holding it back from being my favourite attenuverter design.

Midi clock distribution tips

Not really an ES specific question, but maybe you have some insight. I'm using the ESX-8MD to provide midi clock from my computer to my midi hardware. I want to have the possibility of using my hardware standalone, clocked from one of my hardware sequencers, but also having the possibility of clocki...

Re: High quality VCA shootout

I have the L-1 (diy version), Veils and Zlob Vncursal. I use L-1 and Veils for audio, and Vncursal for CV if I don't need more audio vca's. The L-1 feels cleaner overall than the other two, but it does have a semi-log scale so a direct comparison is hard. I don't really like the way any of the L-1 s...

Re: My system’s power rail voltages are off??

Are you measuring the rails un-loaded? When no power is drawn from the supply it may present higher voltages than under load.

Re: Befaco VCMC voltage controlled MIDI controller

I'm guessing it doesn't have midi input in any way, so I probably just update the value on the synth as soon as the fader starts transmitting data when you move it. I'm guessing midi input can't be added due to hardware design, and usb working as a device (not host). There is a pin in the expansion...

Stackable MTA headers

Hey, looking for a way to distribute power/gnd between 4 stacked CGS60 boards. I'd like to use stackable headers between the boards, but can't seem to find any with the MTA-156 pitch of 3.96mm. I know I could split an ordinary 2.54 SIP into singles, but it would be more fiddly to connect the modules...

Re: Befaco VCMC voltage controlled MIDI controller

When the faders are configured as midi cc outputs, do they pick up the value when the slider reaches the value in the synth, or directly output the cc of the current value of the fader as soon as its touched? I'm afraid it does the latter because pickup only works with midi feedback from the device ...
