Tiptop/itijik CV Softener progress

Post by itijik » Sat Jul 06, 2019 2:23 pm

The new Tiptop/itijik CV softeners are coming along. In case you haven’t heard they are inline slew limiter + attenuator tools for eurorack modular systems.
These can be used as a simple “declicker” or more creative and longer slews. Or flip the switch and it becomes an attenuator! :sb:

Note: The potentiometer will be a knurled type in the final, not the D type as shown.

What do you guys think?

Looks like they are coming along.... How about different colored jacks for in and out? Surely TiPTop can find a source for colored jacks. :hihi:

What is the final price looking like?

Hate to say it but but I'll prolly call these 0 Hp slews.... Just cause it makes more sense to me.

You are going to want to put another pcb or plate of some kind on the bottom to prevent unnecesary shorts ;)

There's in/out on the PCB but a more clear indicator would be pretty sweet.
The price is aimed at under $10.

0 HP Slews is too many syllables...shit, so is CV Softener :hihi:

Yeah the in/out is clearly visible... I was just thinking of how cool they would look with the colored ones. I love the colored jacks on Tiptop stuff like Forbidden Planet and Fold.

Excellent price point. I'll try a few. With a price like that you feel free to call them any damn thing you want. (I will still call them mini-slews or some such though so as not to confuse with my dryer sheets.) :hide:
