Pretty much all Harvestman modules are two-faced, capable of both beauty and ugliness. Both the Hertz Donut and Piston Honda (and mk II variants) are prime examples of this. They are digital, and capable of producing all of the interesting aliasing, crunching, and wavetable lofi-ness you would expe...

Replies: 8

Hi Ed, Can you clarify your trouble with the 490? You note that the filter works "except the resonance which is unusable since the filter goes into self resonation when the resonance pot is at 2/3." The MOTM-490 does self oscillate. Remember, the 490 has some "personality" from the adapted design. :...

Are you going to have these at Synthcube? I'd like to grab a bunch. There is a nice toroidal transformer company right down the road!

I think this was a factory fab error. Those traces should be back to normal on the next run so it just impacts this specific lot number.

Philly warehouse has OCD. They must have scanned it 10 times now. I keep calling them and leaving detailed messages but they don't reply. Very surreal. They have stored the 4 kits for over a week.

Hey Folks, Every socket package for the US is at the post office as of today. Also, Votek's Canadian package too. I sent everyone an email with a USPS Priority tracking number.

Does anyone know what the difference is between the BI "dust proof" and the "sealed" pots are? The datasheet has part #s for each, but it doesn't go into any details beyond that. They are both dust proof. I believe the sealed pots have an o ring or something like that allows them to be washed. The ...

I think you need to fill another variable there to use Ohm's law.

Can you use the total current draw for the module and the voltage to calculate impedance and then plug that in to Ohm's calculator?

I don't know what I am talking about. So you probably shouldn't listen to me. :hmm:

Can we figure out what the drain to source voltage is so that at least gives you a limiting range in selecting a new one. Note* I meant to stick this in the previous post as an edit but messed up. sorry. How about this n-channel mosfet 12V Vdss as a starting point for discussion? http://www.digikey....

That is a tricky one. I don't see any datasheets in the typical places. Do you need to replace one in a Rogue or Taurus 2?

I don't see any cross reference to it. Maybe if you post what the application is and the schematic someone can help recommend a modern replacement.

Is it an old Siliconix FET?
