What is that thing in the bottom pic, Andrew?

it is recycled from a PKE studio mixer (as is most of that synth).
It is now a 20 stage 'binary-programmed' sequencer. Each column of push switches is wired to be an 8-bit selector.

The remaining 8 columns of push switches are used to set up programmable gate outputs from the Milton.

im not sure if i have asked this before but how they hell do you wire stuff inside the mannequins? it must be hard to mount everything but to wire it then makes it seems impossible. do you slice them open first?


andrewF

its a real shit trying to wire down in the crotch region......
basically made a door out of the back (same for the back of the head)
the boards are stacked and bolted all over the place






Luka

we have put lights and piece of mirror inside them before and it was a nightmare - i was always blown away by how much sweat and tears (and swearing) it would have been to make your ones


andrewF

mostly swearing
and some blood

I still keep adding to Pinky, next is a VC sine/cosine generator

Ah... of course... kind of thought so already...

my workbench (a little bit messy at this time, due to the back log):


and my instruments:

Here's the skinny on the blockhaus. I segregate the lab into three zones: the ammo dump (parts + library), the solder saddle (workbench) and the imagination station (design/debug area). Here's an overview:



The ammo dump. I'd say excuse the mess, but it's a lab, not a manufacturing floor:



The solder saddle with red/green RoHS bins and cheapo hot air penis (pencil):



Finally, the imagination station. On the left part of the picture is the power/test bench with all the debug equipment including programmers, scopes, logic analyzers, test PC, etc. On the right is the design station which contains the workstation and enough room to keep a pad of paper or two around in case I want to go old school:



I forgot to mention the tardissynth is part of the test rig for now. Later I'll throw a proper rack frame with a QCR8 and a 3U eurorack in for testing modules.

Crazy stuff guys and great looking synths/labs! I wish I had more time to delve deeper into the DIY bit... looking at this thread makes me want to ask my boss/wife for more time off. nanners

Not very good picture but ...

My first system



Second system much more portable. (Now I can take a plain with my baby without carrying 20 kilo of flightcase) Classic 5u are very nice but...

Funny how people excuse themselves for their "mess"

here's mine, no excuses:

That suitcase looks SUPERnice


jenamu6

I'm so jealous at you guys...........I love these DIY synths.

I can solder and know some electronics.
Yesterday I even finished a RCD from 4Ms

BUT......if it doesn't come with a faceplate.......it's a no go for me.....and almost every diy thingy comes without faceplates. waah


falafelbiels

I'll do that faceplate for you Jean.

hehe




i NEVER had such a clean space to work since i'm into soldering.
must surch for pics from my old appartment oops


Funky40

my very little workspace from the old appartment.
here i soldered my modular from 2006-2009.
it was the space i used to make music in my pre-modular/DIY time
edit: parts where on the floor in bags. some in boxes........DIY hell

now i'm diving into DIYing radio controlled sailplanes. we do DLG.
the mess is unspeakable. Every room not this shit again lol

if i had the chance again i think i would have not made my big wood case
even though making that case was so satisfying

the angled mixer rack cases are the best as you can use them so many ways
you can sit them on bench vertical or horizontally - you can take them out of your studio - you can put your racks effects in there. so useful

(i was 100% influenced by spbaker here)



this is my gig rig now



awesome luka, I was thinking about using one of those mixer cases! Looks great!


Low-Gain

I'm embarrassed to be posting this. not this shit againnot this shit again

Apartment Workshop. IT'S A MESS!!!

We have a SDIY meetup twice a month here in Boston. Anyone in town should drop in if interested. Lots of pics/info on the blog.

Awesome thread.
I love looking at other peoples workspaces and studios. I'll post some pictures of my shop as soon as I shovel it out. I'm in the middle of building a new workbench and things are a bit upside down.
