Kacper is doing cases. He's been working on the design. Read the original post and you'll see his front panel design and the laser-cut resin prototype panel.

I'm in for two kits and two metal enclosures if interest for those is being sampled here too.

29 pairs of wires (1 pair per removed resistor or cap), plus 9 single wires. MTA100 headers attach to right angle connections at the top of the PCB (see photo)

Ok, here's my favorite Cocteau Twins song:

Actually, I was going to ask Liz Fraser sing her own version of the build instructions and see how far people could get.... :razz:

Sign-up list for Cocteau kit is here (Google form): http://bit.ly/2ocVlOq
(Link added in original post.)

If you've signed up in this thread, go ahead and fill out the form.

I'll add a link to Kacper's form for the enclosures sometime soon.

Can't wait! Added myself to the Google form. Any idea how much the enclosure will be?

Definitely in for one, but I would like to hear about what thought are toward development for one compatible with the V2 yocto first? Will they be compatible off the bat? I guess nobody knows yet as it is not fully developed, but maybe the architecture will be similar enough that they will be compatible.. I haven't bought a Yocto kit yet and I am wondering if I should try to get a V1.0 or wait for 2.0. I definitely want this, no matter what Yocto I get. I am sure these improvements dwarf anything the V2.0 will bring.

Just a quick question: Are there plans to work on something similar for NAVA as well?

e-licktronic has not revealed any details of YOCTO 2.0, but I can confirm that Cocteau is not compatible. That is, it will not fit over the top of V2.0 front PCB.

A kind user on the Yocto forum asked Vincent from E-Licktronic if they will do any more V1.0 PCB runs and heard back:
tjh392 wrote:He replied saying V2 is on it's way, there will be no more runs of V1. The board will have a different layout so it won't be compatible with the V1 case.
Which makes Cocteau only an option for those already with a Yocto, or with a 1.0 kit yet to be assembled. In both instances, most of those folk will have a V1 case that would need to be scrapped with the current Cocteau overlay! So it's a bit of a shame. The timing could have been earlier or later for better effect, I think. Not to knock the excellent work into Cocteau! I'm just in a dilemma over it.

By the way Vincent did reveal plans for the V2 kit - see here: http://www.e-licktronic.com/forum/viewt ... =16&t=1191. And from there:
e-licktronic wrote:Yocto V2.0 is still prototyping but here is the improve of the first version:
-Individual accent on each instrument
-Pad and space to add mods directly on the main PCB
-added an extra synthetic drum based on the Boss PC2
-improved sequencer with length, scale, shuffle and direction per instrument (maybe retrigger and uTiming will be added) ,
tape edit mode, a chain mod and more...
-Stereo output
-...

Your ideas are welcome

Should be available in more or less two month

Best regards,
e-licktronic

Clearly the only sensible solution here is for vincent and effegee to synchronise their designs for a V2 release.

Get to work people! :hihi: :goo:

agreed! :bananaguitar:

Seriously I would love to sign up but I am skeptical at how realistic getting a Rev 1 PCB set is right now.

wow...

i have a v1 board and enclosure that are still unbuilt...

this would mean that i would ditch my first kacper enclosure though.... and this seems a bit complex to put together...

has anyone attempted this thing as a supplementary surface (mounted on its own and wired into the 808 enclosure through a rather large hole?)

i am trying to work out if I would justify ditching the enclosure for another one or not...

Wouldn't making a new enclosure be expensive as well?
If I had a V1 Yocto I wouldn't hesitate a second!
