Hope to finish and release the next summer,the V1 works fine.switches,sliders of the 208 are all midi contrôlable,preset patches function ok,works with a midi keyboard and its functions,a max live app is done ,have to be deeply test it.Need some hardware tweak,and finish the final hardware version ,example inserted in a modern 218X

viewtopic.php?f=19&t=140876


My tip is to begin to build the psu and the 4UX boat (without the aux card pcb) to test your work
Then the mother board ,card 3 and 4 ,card 1 ,2 card 5,6 card11 card12 card 7,8,9,10,aux noise .
THE MICRO PSU pcb build pics
EE00ED21-DD5F-4E10-9FA8-183DC50786BC.png
The DC jack +12v red/Ground black
2FB44A83-C77C-438C-9805-0740A5DE142C.png
The pcb with all the parts soldered,clean the solder flux with essence F or other product ,not already done in the pics ;(
Use heat shrink for the 2x inductors,and each pin soldered.
31742B1B-2D0A-4B8C-942D-8B26ADCCA291.png
The 4 molex connector is to power the aux /noise pcb
The standard Buchla wire colors are
ground quiet Q black
-15v white ,I use blue here
+15v red
12v green
+5v orange ,I use yellow here
Noisy ground brown

You should find -16V (for -15V) as the psu is not loaded.
969AE7F5-B643-454A-922C-5963758888CC.png
Pass the dc jack thru the power square cutout
A471422B-3A54-43D4-A015-EDB7FB8CB6AF.png
Solder the hot red wire 12v lamp plug ,the ground should be done by the metal of the case/standoff
And solder the black ground banana on a ground pad on the pcb.

After the psu 100% ok ,build your mother board MB
Take your time ,if your mother board is 100% ok,you have done a lot of the job.
Begin by the 3 diodes and the resistors

208X card 11 V2 mouser basket

I used to build the card 10 and 11 at the same time as they have a close design ,but you will need a lot of concentration .

208X card 12 V1 updated basket
For the 3x TO 220 insulator,an electronic local store is a good choice.

https://www.mouser.com/ProjectManager/P ... 47f1a5ba4e

Fyi,mouser is slower than before covid ,3/5 days

Trimmers (missing 2) ,cts 13 tantale capacitors like an origina,I use tropical caps ,too.
Ic sockets

Finally I put all the screws,nuts,washers needed in the hardware kit (you will need some (2)to fix your reverb frame +2 plastic washers under the 56 pins)

Ive updated the 10 pins power connector for this one better quality imho
https://www.mouser.fr/ProductDetail/798-CR6-10S-3.96E


A note about resistors sourcing at mouser,the day of your order .
If ref 603-CFR-25JR-52-xx 25JB
is not available you can swap with
603-CFR-25JB-52-xx 25JR
The goal here is to have more than 10 resistors of the same ref to have the quantity discounted .0,085 to 0,042 ;)

All the toggles for the project 208X with the 4UX boat (aux card)included.

Medium quality E switch toggles +one CKK Mouser basket

Medium Quality E switch brand only toggles,mouser https://www.mouser.com/ProjectManager/P ... f6ddf2970f

CKK high quality ,recommended but expensive toggles switches +3 x mini serie 200 Eswith toggles mouser basket added
https://www.mouser.com/ProjectManager/P ... 5dc04490e9

Mountain switch brand is fine too.

I like the tayda electronics 9mm/16mm right angle pots
Small bear,Thonk is fine,too.

Cheap Colored caps
https://www.thonk.co.uk/shop/switchcaps-sub-mini/

4 colors Rogan knobs to customize your 208X ;)
https://www.thonk.co.uk/shop/rogan-buchla/

For the vactrol ,I use Xvive VTL5C3 brand x11 for a complete 208X ,and 2 VTL5C3/2 for the card 10/card 11 (matched pair)

I offer the sliders ,stand-off,nuts washers ,screws in my harware kit,pm .

Really soon :) end of the week
Infos about the sliders and toggle switches
If you have bought the hardware kit with the sliders ,you will receive 22 little pcbs to fit under the sliders
It’s top notch,these sliders are really steadies ,the MB traces are 100% isolated from the metal of the sliders.
It’s a lot of job,tests...but I’m really happy.
The colored caps (if you use standard ones ) are above around 1mm of the panel,here the black from tayda ;)
For the toggle switch. You have to test them before installation,check carefully the parts numbers when you install them example:(SPDT on-on and on-off-on )
Check the position of your momentary switches x2 ,pulse trig and reset seq ,there are différents,solder ONLY ONE PIN ,up to you will install the panel,the same with the sliders only two pins up and down.Install only one nuts on the toggle switch at the right level with the nuts Tool you will install the second
Nut against the panel .USE TWO NUTS BY TOGGLE !!!!

Eh oui ! ;)Qui cherche trouve des solutions,au lieu de copier bêtement.

I don’t like the alps sliders,there are designed to be fixed under a panel ,not only on a pcb.

Adjust the first nut under the washer at the right height.
