Nice!
Really like those knobs as well, could be a tiny bit smaller, but the aluminium insert is pretty classy.

Thanks Jarno, For being my very first euro DIY build this turned out better then I hoped. I had forgot to order pots and knobs. luckily I had a stash that worked from a DIY parts bulk buy.

Who wants a Minimoog VCF?

Image

I do!

This seriously needs calibration, but as it is it sounds pretty neat :) I think I may need to rewire the jacks, seems to be a mild bit of crosstalk. Got the panels done by FPD, not sure I would again. Very, very nice looking, but seriously expensive.

My dual wogglebug is officially done! Low-gain Logan built it for me and it's the real deal... germanium ring mods for the child tones... led drivers... way happy. I hope to show you guys the suitcase of these modules here real soon... I have 5 or 6 others built. I did the panel ;)

Ten step sequencer, selectable from 1 to 10 steps, with reset in, clock in, and manual step and reset. CV out, and gate out :) Had to do some farting about with the Reset input circuitry.

Image

Mechanically, this one wound up being a bloody pig. I spent more time getting the pots and switches on and then wiring it up than I did soldering resistors in. The board is backwards because I forgot to mirror my drill holes for the faceplate, so it was either drill the very expensive faceplate, or mount everything Lovetone style.

Not to mention everything is too damn close together. The pot markings are because I'm out of good 1900H knobs. Almost out of 3.5mm sockets, too.

Image

This is what the other side of the board is like. I pinched the IC's for my final version, and didn't socket the transistors on the final one either (no vertical headroom.)

Still, everything is a learning experience! Now I know for the next board :)

like the DIY indicators on the pots. I assume you are supposed to use the 9mm plastic alphas for that? You should fill the indicator with paint..

MFOS Noise Cornucopia

Aside from the “MFOS” kissing the top a little too high I’m really happy with the way this panel turned out.

yet another pt2399 delay

Post by Littlem4tt » Wed May 21, 2014 7:12 pm

I had a go at making a delay which has lo and hi pass filters and a ring mod in the feedback chain.
It also has a clock output to slave sequencers.
But the main thing i needed from a delay was a cv controlled send control so you can use it like an aux on a mixing desk.

I called it chromosome 17

@Synesthesia: Nice repaneling!



Not much, but it should get the job done so I can connect banana to my euro. Next time I'll wait until I have access to a drill-press. I might have to make another just because my ocd hates that these aren't straight :deadbanana:.

^I made one of those utility boxes a few years ago, they are one of the most useful tools to have for your modular, a brilliant diy project for sure.

Built this over the weekend. First DIY kit. The panels turned out a bit rough, but it works, WHICH IS A PRETTY BIG FUCKING SUCCESS IN MY OPINION. :tu:
