For the future, or for those who have no desire to make such a cable, George Mattson sells them through his web store.

I'm not sure what you mean - that is what the power cable is for, right?

And, to help avoid confusion, "connector" is the name for the socket end that is attached to the wire, and "header" is the name for the group of pins on the PCB. That's the convention used by most of the interconnect manufacturers

@ negativspace I didn't know about those, thanks for the tip!

haha now i'm not sure what you mean!....

seeing as the kit doesnt come with a power cable...

i was talking of making my own power cable... to go from 4pin on the board to 16 pin on the bus ......

rather than

10 pin on the board to 16 pin on the bus.....

now i'm really confused.......

Ah, okay, then yes: it is perfectly fine to go from the 4-pin header to the 16-pin Doepfer bus. That is what I thought we were talking about anyway. :)

Don't bother trying to remove the 4-pin and install a 10-pin, it's a pain to do.

modded mine with the following:
-attenuator pots for the cv inputs
-feedback pot from output->input. 50klog with 50k resistor plus a 100nF cap in series to cut down on low freq oscillations if gain is high.
-50K trimpot on output
-true bypass switch
just found out about the 'stability' option. unfortunatly my frontpanel is full now :hmm: and i thought i had left plenty of space for extra's :doh:

My version. Waiting on some red banana sockets and some more labelling to finish it off. Wish all DIY stuff was this easy :)

Bumping an old thread since it's kind of the same thing...

Will the bare bones kits still be available, or have they been phased out?

BareBones versions will continue to be available for ALL Flight modules. There is some positive restructuring in regards to manufacturing/availability at the Flight headquarters over the next 60 days to make sure you guys (and gals) can get your solder covered hands on these anytime you want!

P.S. We have two PB BareBones rev4 (the newest version) left. It's looking like April until things are up to speed with Flight. Good things to come!

Great to hear! Is it possible to get them with 1/4" jacks as well, or would one have to go direct for such? As well, do you guys ship to Canada?

They only come with the 3.5mm (1/8") jacks. You would have to hunt down 1/4" jacks on your own, but shouldn't be too hard to find.
Hell yeah we ship to our neighbor just to the north!

Is the old Bare Bones manual for the r3.3 version gone?? It had the drilling templates for the faceplates. Finally getting around to ordering some and want to send the measurements. The new manual for the r3.3 doesn't seem to have any measurements in it.

Here's my hackey double Plague mod. Looks crummy, but I love it that way!
Crappy double attenuator/distributor next to it is handy as well.

Ooh that looks nice! I take it you left out the mults? Was gonna look at getting 2 8hp faceplates made up for my 2 PB Barebones kits, but i'd also kinda like to put 2 together in a 12 hp panel if possible. It would mean leaving out some/all of the mults though.

Would be cool to have the output of the first PB normalled to the input of the second, and I'd like to have mults on the outputs and inputs for feedback loops but not sure if I'd have enough room. Hmmmm

12 hp is the minimum and it's tight. Yup, left off the mults for space reasons and it's racked next to the 138m matrix mixer and homemade attenuator/1-2 splitter, feedback loops are an option for sure. I thought about normaling out 1 to in 2 but I was in such a rush to get it going I didn't do it. My DIY shit can be very crude.
It's funny how folks on this forum are so good at their builds and it looks so super pro. My stuff looks so funky but it's fun and I like it anyway.
