blacet from the backlog

Post by fluxmonkey » Tue Apr 07, 2020 12:46 pm

taking refuge in the basement during lockdown, working on the backlog (i've got a couple years worth), found a couple Blacet VCO kits!
I have a LOT of VCOs, but these are still my go-to favorites - so musical, and they FM so nice. I'm also really appreciating his care and attention to detail... component numbering that flows logically across the board! component designators placed so you can still read them after the component is placed! Nice to remember one of the guys so responsible for my DIY development.

Having tried to layout some PCBs myself, I can appreciate the art of a great layout!
I wonder how many other Blacet kits are out there waiting to be built...

Oof those Blacet VCOs are honestly some of the best I've ever used. I don't personally have a Frac system but those oscillators alone have tempted me to get started about a million times over.

I have an LFO that I've assembled the board for. Need to order an SPST switch to use for the frequency select mod.

Have one of the new envelope generators that I haven't started and that's it.

I still have a TM and a Filthy Filtre (pcb only) in my backlog.

Untill last sunday I had a Time Event Modulator in my backlog. A nice built and a unique module.

It is so sad, that there won't be any new Blacet modules. Most underrated designer of synth circuits.
