Jeroen Baars / electric dog: is he here at muffs ? (TubeVCA)

Post by Funky40 » Mon Nov 25, 2019 7:37 pm

this is about the Electric Dog Tube VCA,
is by coinsidence Jeroen Baars a member here ?


i´d like to pick up on this. ( found a small package with more tubes, hehe (5672 ))
First: i´d like to get the schematics.
@Frequenzy Central: do you have yours still ?

and then maybe doing some discussion ?
Whats the standing of that project today ?
Seems that it was never without flaws ?
links:
this was about the filter, the VCA is woven in at the end ( very little infos)

the dutch therad, about the filter https://www.synthforum.nl/forum/synth-h ... je?t=90425

........but i think the interesting bit is the VCA ;)






By conincidence was my electric Dog Tube VCA creating troubles yesterday ( shut down/short a whole rack) after newly placing it in my rack.
Took the module out and when i put the module back was all going, and look: now the Tube VCA was spitting out the nicest tube sound to have.
( bevore it was allways sounding very clear with a touch of........i don´t know, there was a touch of something on top of the clearity, but it was NOT anything distortion, more like "overpronounced clearity" (hehe) ).
Its like there was a contact wrong within the module, maybe within the tube, that got fixed.......by whatever coinsidence...... :hmm:


I think this thing is a sleeper, since the build is so easy.
My module was built based on a PCB that i have drawn, etched by a friend ( no, the pcb drawing is no longer available since i lost the HD)


finally: i would like to see this module happen as a DIY kit ( here my intention lies ;) )

Finest EMS gear service and Music Easel/208 goodies

I'm not a synths dealer and I'm not aware of an inexpensive Synthi secret market, please don't ask me if I know one for sale.
I don't offer support of any kind to people attempting to build clones of EMS equipment.
