DIY Mutable successfull builds hall of fame

Post by Dogma » Fri May 22, 2015 6:20 pm

I wanted to start a thread so people can A show off their successful builds and B provide confidence for people wanting to build that it can be done...

At the moment from where i stand Ive seen a few success builds from the usual suspects but Ive only seen whats posted and I can recall seeing 2 clouds, some Braids, Elements but only one and again from the usual suspects..

I would imagine given the numbers of people trying we would have people shouting to from the rooftops when they are playing their self-built MI Modules...
So heres a space to do that..
look up!

That looks fantastic! I looked as closely as I could and thats some fine soldering right there. By hand? what tools?

I believe I remember seeing a completed Tides in the Braids build thread. Also in there were various Peaks builds and a Ripples IIRC.

Big chunky tip 40W pencil soldering iron -- no base station, just plug the cord in (other end is the iron), and off we go! That, 0.6mm 60/40 solder, and desoldering braid to clean up when needed. Nothing else (except the odd exclamation of "F^<|< me, that's tiny!")

The panel was done by a guy I know with a laser machine, I just emailed him the board file :)

Up to now, a Braids

Image

And a few Clouds ... :hihi:

Just waiting on panels from Greyscale (and one freeze button from Mouser) to finish these off.

Clouds works really well with the MTM Radio Music. My aim is to have a box with 3 x Radio Musics, 6 x Clouds & some clocking & sequencing.


I'll do an Elements & a second Braids when Adam ships PCBs for those.

Got my second working braids :) Had some personality at first, cleaning up the IC soldering (and fixing a bridge between R49 and R50 that gave the Fine pot extra personality) fixed all that. Now it's working and in the synth :)

pcb photo is before soldering the pots. i actually found a better encoder for braids that mounts to the faceplate and works the right way around, so that photo is a bit old and incorrect, but anyways.

Image

pcb photo also taken before soldering the pots ect.. clouds is still waiting for a grayscale faceplate. meanwhile it has this sexy diy faceplate made out of a DVD cover and sticker laser print.

these both are my first smt projects ever. both soldered by hand, and worked the first time. actually enjoyed smt soldering. meditative :)

Estimated ship date for Mutable panels is this upcoming Friday (May 29), so most likely I'll have all preorders shipped by the end of the following week.
