MST resistor values

Post by kdmr » Wed Jul 27, 2016 6:16 am

working on the LFO, VCO, and CV Mixer PCBs. the BOMs call for a number of hyper-specific (4.99k, 33.6k, ect) resistor values. anyone know how essential it is to nail these values? I guess I don't mind rifling through my 5%ers to find these values or just buying them from synthrotek, i'm just a bit skeptical that the next nearest common value wont work fine. any experience out there?

I specified 1% resistors when operational tolerances were critical.

You could try 5% resistors close to those values. But, don't expect them to work within spec. On the VCO, it's really tight.
