Falafular- last call?

Howdy folks The Falafular modules were among the earliest of the DIY SMY modules we started working with, and for a while they had become popular (especially the drum modules) We remember lots of conversations with DIY'ers who were not sure about SMT at that time-- and now look at all of us! We have...

Re: [AVAILABLE] TTSH V4 Build Thread

I built the 4022 noise module on a breadboard following the schematics. The only part I used from my TTSH build / Synthcube kit was the LM301. The rest were from my spare parts bin. The results are exactly the same, square on the output of Z1! I really need to find another LM301 (not from the Synth...

IC sockets - the good, the bad and the ugly

After unintentionally creating a firestorm of controversy on the topic of IC sockets in other threads --I decided to create a post so everyone can hash it out as they desire. We go through thousands of IC sockets for our projects here. When we began, we began using 'off brand' dual wiper types becau...

Re: ARP 1601 clone Build Thread

Watching all of this with fascination. We have had some trouble with a small number of LM301AN (Rochester parts) on another project (Pharmasonic Sys-100 VCO) , so we ordered some LM301AP, and that resolved the issue. If you do not have an extra LM301 around, contact us and we will send you LM301AP t...

Erica Synths DIY Polivoks VCA II version/calibration Q

Builders out there with experience in the AS3360 version of this module? This is the updated version of the module where the main board uses the AS3360 IC rather than the K118UD1 ICs. We built a few and thy are behaving similarly. When attempting to calibrate, a gain of 1 is never reached. The highe...

Re: update on Blacet kits migration to synthCube

We really appreciate the dialogue and expert opinions--- to be clear from where we sit: 1) We have not taken a position on 'socket ICs vs don't socket ICs.' But we do add sockets to our kits for those people who choose to use them. 2) We have decided to add dual wiper sockets rather than machine pin...

Re: update on Blacet kits migration to synthCube

One of the troublesome-to-locate Blacet parts is knobs- as you all know, his original Rean types are no longer made. We have spent some time looking for the absolute closest version we can-- and we think we have found something we can live with--- these are soft touch, d-shaft knobs with the colored...

Re: [AVAILABLE] TTSH V4 Build Thread

We were convinced by some research and smart people that the dual wiper type are superior to the machine pin type for the ICs we use in all of our kits. Please entertain us with your research. I'm curious about how your consensus is different from any other that I have heard in my 7 years of tinker...
