Reading through this thread has been great. I want to try one of these some day!!

Though I love the experimental aspect of this instrument, if I DID want to set up simple repeating clicks/thumps/blips, is it easy to create a repeating pattern?

I've been dreaming of an awkward/polyrhythmic metronome of sorts. I guess that sounds a bit odd when I type it out, but typical drum machines just are not what I'm looking for...


If it's just metronome type pulses you want, try building a few of the Rollz 5 paper curcuits. A few even numbered ones will have you generating polyrhythms in seconds.

Ooh! Great. Thanks for the suggestion. I'll definitely try this out.

This is a question for all you PB2 owners.

I had a problem with mine where almost half of my 'nana jacks weren't sending/accepting signals and had to crack the sucker open and reflow/resolder them so they'd work.

Now that all the jacks are working, I'm experiencing some questionable behavior that I can't determine if it's general PB wonkiness or if I fucked something up and shorted a connection or 10.

As an example, let's say I'm clocking TMWTRS from a Rolz. If I connect a red or orange out from the smokestack of TMWTRS to a green or blue of something else, the clock will wonk out briefly and then settle. Seem normal?

That's just one example.

Is anyone with a PB2 with a ground jack willing to take the top off and snap a couple of pictures of where the ground is connected to the PCB?

I just tested it on mine and it doesn't seem to be normal behavior.

No one?

OK. Well, I ordered two new power supplies. Let's see if that helps.

sorry it took me so long I'm in florida so the plumbutter didn't want to come apart the first couple times I tried to take it apart

the white cable goes to the black banana jack
the circle pad that the white cable comes from is on the other side of the red output of the right hand AVdog

I'm glad I got this PB open as I've always been less than satisfied with the deerhorn range on this unit and I finally fixed it Rockin' Banana!

hope this helps

Thank you so much. Thanks to you I'll finally be able to cross-patch my CQ2 and PB2.

Edit: "Deerhorn range" meaning hand from antenna range? If so, please illuminate me on how you modified this as I am having the same issue.

ok so on the deerhorn there are two variable capacitors
they both have teeny tiny little heads for turning
one on the top and one on the bottom
you can see there are two little holes on the deerhorn section (one up top and one on the bottom) these are for using a screwdriver for turning (without taking the top off)


I didn't ever do it as I didn't' know if we were dealing with flathead or philips so I just dealt with a little range for the deerhorn

all I did was once I had taken the top off of the plumbutter I manually (I actually used my fingernail but jewelers/electronics screwdrivers would be best I suppose) turned the capacitor via a flathead notch on the bottom of the variable caps

the variable caps are different than all the other components as they are round. they are not in the picture but it should be fairly easy to tell which ones they are as they are found on the top and bottom of the deerhorn section

it took some time to get it to a more playable range
both the top and bottom caps will need to be adjusted (in my case anyway...)
set it up on your lap/bench so that you can tune the caps with one hand and gesture the deerhorn with the other

hope this helps
it was much easier to do than I thought which is one of the reasons I put off doing it for so long

remember
tiny cap turns make big changes

Just made a few of these floating toggle switches to switch up signal routing on the fly. I have a separate diy box with some switches, extra rolls, and attentuators, but sometimes I just don't feel like patching back and forth. Hopefully these will make things a little more streamlined.

Nice floaters!

A few things going on here. IIRC, I designed those watery sounds on a small euro skiff, dumped that to tape, and then fed the sound from the tape loop (running at half-speed) through the Gong input on the PB; both gongs were then FMd by the AVDogs. All of the high-pitched shrieking is - as you've guessed - PB.

This piece is a lot of fun! Nice one.

Here is solo PB2 doing pop music:

Love both the process and the result!

Thanks, Hainbach! Wish I had a better recording setup at home, but I have to work with what I have. I'm hoping to record and share more, especially as I start my journey with the Coco this weekend!

that is sounding nice and sweet good tunes

how are you liking that JBL speaker?
do you have a pair of them?

playing over a PA/loudspeaker feels very different to playing with a little portable speaker (the new minirig is great fun but it is still no comparison)

Thx.

I bought the single JBL to use as a "just jamming" keyboard amp.

For that purpose, it slays face. I do wish I had a second for stereo. Maybe one day! They're not too expensive.

Gets waaaaay louder than I need for inside the house but sometimes in an aggro mood it feels amazing to crank the thing and shred.

V. cool. I like how you coaxed that bassline out of the thing!
cygmu
That is like magic. How on earth do you get all that out of a plumbutter?

There's some delay / reverb clearly, but was anything else used to achieve that?
