If enough people ask, maybe they will make another small batch of v1 Yocto kits. Hit them up on their forum, Facebook, etc. Or maybe we can arrange some sort of group buy type deal for a batch of v1 kits?

On the [COCTEAU enclosures - first batch] page it says

"Enclosures are the same as Yocto 1.0 enclosures but with some changes on front and back panel."

Does that mean the dimensions will fit inside Kacper's Yocto V1 metal case?

In that case it might be possible to drill the additional holes in? Not sure how feasible that would be especially with the shape of the switch holes of course

Help/Advice needed

Post by Jwiering » Tue Apr 18, 2017 6:25 am

Hello!

I'm a complete beginner to the DIY realm. But I am very interested in getting the Yocto with the Cocteau expansion. I have some friends who are experienced in soldering so that won't be a problem.

Can someone shed a light on what I have to order to have all the parts for a Yocto Cocteau drummachine? Really looking forward to making making music with this drummachine.. it sounds like a dream with those features! <3

You will need the following to build a Yocto with Cocteau mod:

1. v1 Yocto kit
2. Cocteau mod kit
3. Cocteau case
4. Other parts for v1 Yocto DETAILS HERE
5. Other parts for Cocteau mod - details in first post

Hope that helps.

Ahhh.... decisions! Really want to do the V1 option with Cocteau... but I love the idea of accent per voice on the new yocto2.... but then I'm afraid I'll butcher the case/enclosure for a yocto2 when adding in some of the new optional mods without a proper overlay... what to do!!
EDIT: what a wonderful world it is to have these kinds of options - thanks!

e-licktronic confirms that the minimum 50 kits has been met and they are still taking orders.

PayPal invoices (price of kit + shipping & handling) go out in the next couple of days. The Cocteau list will close the same day as the YOCTO V1 list, May 1st, so anyone that wants one will have to order by Monday evening (US, PDT). Then I will place the order for PCBs and parts, which should arrive within 6-8 weeks.

I've been working with Kacper to finalize the design of the back panel, front face and bottom of enclosure (not the front panel, which will stay the same) to give people the option of future modifications, especially the Autonomik Circuits CV expansion kit, which will be available later this year AND and an expansion slot for the forthcoming Drum Module Generator (DMG), which will add an additional drum voice to YOCTO in the form of swappable cartridges. Note: both the CV expansion and DMG will be compatible with YOCTO V1 (+ Cocteau), YOCTO V2 and NAVA.

Watch this thread for more information.

Just paid upn (EDIT: Just saw this was for the enclosure - not the full kit yet!) :sb: So CV expansion will work on a stock NAVA? That's great news! I will take one for each then when that becomes available. Looking forward to this.. Had been waiting for the V2 Yocto to come out, but this seems like it will be a much more welcome improvement than the V2 sequencer. I always end up sequencing these from my Cirklon anyway..

All PayPal invoices have been sent out to people who filled out the google form.
There are 6 people who asked for a kit in this thread, but I still don't see their name on the google form list. (I pm'd them, but haven't heard back.) If you haven't received an invoice and still want a kit, please fill out the form so you don't miss out: http://bit.ly/2ocVlOq

The list closes tomorrow, May 1st (same day as the YOCTO V1 final batch).

Looks like the Yocto list is already closed. I feel like I had trouble signing up for it last weekend and I'm now second guessing whether or not I got through.

Is there any way that someone could PM me contact info for e-licktronic? I've already paid for Cocteau and enclosure, I'd hate to miss out on the Yocto kit.
