This one was surprising fast and easy, and really a well designed module and kit also -

This one took a long time.

Great job with this! You absolutely crushed the design. I enjoyed reading through the entire process on your blog. Going with the authentic 808 and 909 design really looks terrific. :yay:
Hey, thanks Datum! And I'm glad at least someone read the blog :tu:

Thanks to SyndieBot2000XL for the Sin Phi Miasma panel/pcb in a little trade we did, and several hours of backbreaking labour I've finished this thing.. Always wanted a Rampage but prefer knobs to sliders.. The ring mod is a fun addition, think i'm going to get a black panel made up though, can't have 1 blue module in an all white/black/silver case..

Cheers SyndieBot2000XL!

More newbie things! This time a DC-coupled multiple, with a fancypants bi-colour LED to indicate what's going on. This was a wonderfully stress-free build, the only problem is I'm out of 100R resistors to build the other two PCBs :). More programmer art on the front, I think it makes it nice and clear just what's going on so that's cool.

I just took http://musicfromouterspace.com/analogsy ... dist2.html and added an LED instead of the fourth audio output.

As an aside, I see quite a few 2HP multiple modules that seem to cram an impossible amount of audio jacks into such a tiny (vertical) space. How is that done? Do people use different-to-thonkiconn jacks in these, or do they forgo the ground connection? Or do the PCBs end up being a sandwich of panel - front pcb - rear pcb? Or, is this where surface mount comes in handy?

You can see for example look at the pictures here to figure out how they do it: https://schneidersladen.de/de/2hp-mix

I have nearly completed a whole new series of PCBs, but am still testing and tweaking BOMs for some of them. I’m planning to eventually make them available somehow. My pace is a touch more glacial than it was previously.

Ah, thank you! Seems like that'd make narrow modules (normally) quite deep :)

No. Not when you need 2x4 to move signals around the room (4 channels) one chasing another. Only eight left then.

Just get a Planar and drive it with quadrature sine waves in panning mode. That will keep all your VCAs free for other duties.

I finally finished the last of my DIY backlog and it was a bit of a doozy.
