Agreed. All three for... epicness or something.

Looking forward to this one.
Well, that's good to hear, because the 606 toms are about 80% less complicated than the 909 toms, which means I will probably actually do them at the same time as the 909 snare/clap :)

Cool. Guess when it's all done we will all have the "Hexinveter 69 oh' 69". Won't know where to start or when to end.

I'm cool with whatever you choose. I'll grab one of each drum module and have some fun. Hey I was looking at this - http://www.moogaudio.com/mfb-seq-02-p-2149.html

Would this be a decent seq to trigger a bunch If the hex modules? I dont have a "real sequencer" and thought I might be a good place to start, do the heart of my 69oh69.

Nice! This is all timing out almost too perfectly with the drum box I've been scheming up.

Yes indeed, the MFB SEQ02 is an excellent linear drum programming module :)

Haha, now there's a good name :nana:

I have finished placing components for the PCB :D

The 8pin jumper (and the surrounding dashed outline) is the new noise daughter card I have designed. Since almost all of the TR-909 circuits use the same noise generator, and I have had many people ask for substitute noise circuits, now it will be easy to just whip up a small PCB with a different noise generator in it and plug it in. It also means the PCB is smaller if you are slaving the noise generator to another NeinOhNein PCB of mine in which you have already built a noise generator!

You simply omit the noise generator card on all but one of the NeinOhNein projects you have built, and instead run a wire from the different PCBs, slaving them all to one noise generator.

Every PCB will come with the CD4006 noise generator card, and possibly an alternate one if it fits into the PCB panel order. We'll see!

Yeah, those 909 toms are just about the pinnacle of complexity in Roland analogue drum sound engineering - each tom circuit is pretty much as complex as a drum channel in something like a Simmons drum synth. If they had allowed access to all the parameters they would have been quite special, but instead they opted to confine them to a pretty narrow range that they felt was "realistic".

Thank you! And a brilliant way to add even more functionality to these circuits for those of us who like to experiment... BTW I've seen quite a few mods to different Roland drum machines that allow an external signal to be used instead of the internal noise generator, this makes it dead easy to do.

Cheers

Seconded. I also like the idea of having access to these sounds and also take them further. Great stuff!

I would be interested in at least one of these and the snare also.

Even though I understand that the 909 Toms may be difficult I can't help thinking that these would be better to have. Sorry :hide: with you being so close to having a complete 909 and all that.

Hehe! Duly noted -- I just do not have the time to devote to the 909 toms right now. Far too many other way more interesting projects of my own design to make ^__^

As much as I love the end result of reproducing the circuitry in the x0x machines, cloning their design does not really stimulate me at all. I need to work on my own projects! It's eating away at me! hah! :deadbanana:

maybe you could make an indiegogo for this project as well?

Thanks for the suggestion, but there is no need! :) I can cover PCB manufacturing costs myself...that's no problem. It's just with large module runs that I need external funding!

The prototype PCBs are ordered for this one...it's just a waiting game to be able to order the final production PCBs once I've tested and verified the design!

Cheers :)

Hex,
What are the PCB's dimensions for your upcoming projects?
I'll be putting some of your PCB's in a seperate box and I need to check if all the PCB's will fit.

Are you planning any mod's like you did for the Rim? That would be nice to know when making the panels.

Cheers,
