[CLOSED] EU Music Thing Axoloti Control Board PCB

Post by wavefold » Mon Feb 22, 2016 12:15 pm

EDIT 2
Last chance to get a board! Soon i'll make the EU order so please if anyone else is interested, just write down here username + n. of boards you want.
I'll close EU order tomorrow.
I'll pm you w/ prices as soon as I'll make the order.

TY
EDIT

Okay folks, I believe there's enough interest to plan a small run of boards

RE: redesign > bigger numbers: I can't find .brd files of the board so I can't work around this, if anyone manages to do so lemme know

from now on if you're interested in one or more boards please:
-write your username + how many boards would you like to get so I can calculate how much will it cost

maybe it would be better if someone in the US can take care of US wigglers, in order to make the shipping process faster
I can take care of the EU folks
It's quite some time now that I've been considering to get an Axoloti board and now that Tom has designed this little cool control board I have one more reason to do so. Music Thing Modular Axoloti Control Board by Tom Whitwell

price? down? The Axoloti is 65EUR, the control board is open source and about $20 on OSHpark, cheaper elsewhere. So what do you expect? It doesn't get any cheaper than this.

For me this is to limited. Only real value added to the hardware is the software which I can do myself. Hardware wise I'd get this which has a lot of features for the bucks.

I would be interested. I went to order a PCB today, but you have to order 3 minimum (about $65 + shipping).

My feedback from using this for a week or two.

- It's really fun!
- It's little and cute.
- I very quickly 'learn' the interfaces that I've created - in the delay video the three buttons do quite obscure things like "switch between single note, random notes and saw LFO" or "switch between sine and wav playback" but you learn them by patching them.
- In use, the numbers you use are the little ones - you're thinking "OK, I'll connect a digital output to that LED, what pin is that connected to? *Peers at tiny text* Right, PB1".
- The big numbers: "Turn Pot 1 for cutoff" I never look at. I didn't make the little numbers big because I thought it would make the panel look bonkers, would probably make them bigger if I did it again.

Count me in for a PCB.

Wondering if it's worth trying to improve the legibility of the numbers based on Tom's comments above...?
sometimes i post stuff on instagram

send me a message if you might like to make some music with a total stranger <3

I'm waiting for the one that Axolotl themselves started to develop to get produced. The Axolotl control:

My bad, thought I saw that the control board was in the region of $65 (because they are selling in sets of 3) on OSHpark when ordering individually, $20 is obviously fine...
