SeaGoUt

Post by gijs » Sat Jun 13, 2015 2:46 am

made a module with seagate hard disc motors, check it here:
http://gieskes.nl/eurorack/?file=seagout

these 3 pin motors are difficult to get, so i just have a few. i can make kits if there is interest, then you could find your own motor.

one trims the audio output, one trims the cv output and one sets the amount of demodulation of the cv output.

I love it! Very cool :sb:

Have you tried the little brushless DC motors used on small RC aircraft? You can get 3 phases 120 deg apart.

this looks fantastic as is, but, i was imagining it might allow for cv control of the seagout's dc motor

Is anybody selling their SeaGoUt module? I'd like to buy one.

Seeing how small the motors are on tiny quad copters you might get a micro version in 2hp - or a quad version in 8hp. Happens to most everything else.

I'm sorry, but I'm not following. What do you mean? I doubt anyone would make a module where the panel is smaller than the range of the rotator. So a 2hp module is out of the question.

Anything between 6hp - 8hp seams feasible but other than the Gieskes, I know of no other manufacturer that would even bother with such a design.

I find it hard to believe anyone would make a panel narrower than a sensibly sized knob for human fingers, but it happens.

2hp modules are just fine. I actually prefer the minipots sometimes. For set-and-forget parameters they are perfect, as they are less likely to be knocked out of position when performing.

Anyway, still looking for a SeaGoUt module. :mrgreen:

yeah - sorry I was just being facile for laughs, didn't mean to derail your search... :oops:

Good point about small pots being less likely to be knocked though.


Damn I just did it again! :doh:

Has anyone seen this mans module!?!?

Does anyone know if there are smaller HDD motor / spindles than the one used here? I'm thinking a 6hp version of this should be possible without losing much rotational energy.

And after almost a year I managed to get one of these. Just received mine directly from Gieskes. Can't wait to put it on the case!
