Got a bit excited on the DIY front. This shit's more addictive than eurocrack!
Either missing parts, or panels, or mounting hardware, or the right pots, so this is the queue.

My lack of mounting hardware has resulted in some wiring/mounting which is - well - ... REALLY FUCKING DODGEY

Yeah, used that mounting method as well, for it's, uh, "shock absorbing" qualities.

We are total hacks, but hey, if something breaks we know how to fix it right?

I built a Barton Musical Instruments Decaying Analog Noise module. Nicely harsh and cool!

DIY but not necessarily in its truest meaning. Very very pleased with this design though:

Hey FSS that looks great, could you explain the normalling switching?

Ah, someone else is finding that the three wierd-footprint jack sockets on that Eko module are not of this planet.

I am afraid a firmware change will not be able to turn a rather expensive 16-bit DAC into a 16-bit ADC, and flip all those op-amps :)

Dead cool.

Lots of work. I did this chiefly for the challenge. Prophecysound Infinitphase phaser. He's on MW, MikeBOz, very, very cool guy :)

The multiple boards are to get around Eagle's 80x100 size limitation, also had the bonus of working around the crease in the middle and isolating the grounds.

The LFO is the most flexible non-digital LFO I've ever seen. Shape from square to triangle (and in between), symmetry, rate, depth, range, and it has the option of a sequencer controlled waveform (back and forth like KITT, not only forwards like a normal sequencer -- LM3914 controlled, from the LFO's waveform.) MikeBOz did amazingly great work on this. The CV pot goes from LFO only, to sequencer only, with variations in the rotation.

I did his optional four or eight stage switch, along with a Rate switch. (Embarassingly, my Rate pot is backwards.) It can get up into "sounds like ring mod" territory. The 4/8 switch goes between "phase 90 or 45" stomping grounds to watery, liquid, drench you phase.

Very, very cool pedal, and Prophecysound are very cool people for sharing the schematic freely on their website!

(ObSynth: it runs on +/- 15 volts DC, from 15VAC input!)

Except for the pcb and russian parts, and the panel, this one was entirely built with spare parts I had lying around. Mostly while taking breaks from TTSH building.

Very tasteful adaptation of what looks like a Euro PCB :) Are those power protection diodes?
