I do not think I have ever been more inclined to install Kicad....

Very probably not the latest status of the files (given that the latest upload was quite a while ago). Saw the production one on one of the Mylarmelodies videos, pretty cool. But at the same time, TR-8, TR-08, TR8s, yocto xoxbox etc. there are so many out there already.

And of course the RD-808.

Nice to have a modular rack-mounted unit though.

Hopefull the github files will be updated as development proceeds.

Hi Lemmy,

that´s funny just last weekend i found your project on github and now i read it here. I just wanna say thank you for your massive kicad lib :)

Have you converted an eagle file or how did you do it?

Thanks for the Projcet too.

Hi Alfrede,

It's not my project! The kicad lib does look useful though 8-)

There are over 1100 surface mount parts. I hand assembled 3 before switching over to a contract manufacturer for prototypes.

Current status of the project: the 880 is in a limited run production right now. When we get through the first run I'll have time to update the github with documentation. If you don't mind soldering over 1000 TSSOP and 0603 components (plus another 220 through-hole parts!), then this is the project for you! :)

We're still using Kicad 4.02, so keep that in mind when opening the files and browsing the libraries. Haven't made the jump to 5.0 yet...

There are several branches, the main branch is out of date.

Um.... let me think about that :hihi:

Well done for open sourcing the project, good luck with it. :party:
