[IN STOCK] DTM: Moog CP3-type discrete mixer PCB, Euro panel

Post by negativspace » Sat Aug 24, 2013 4:19 am

Having worked with this circuit block as part of my upcoming VCF and remembering this recent thread we had about it, I thought there might be some interest in a standalone PCB for the Moog CP3 mixer. I've just finished building a prototype and everything works, so unlike most of my projects this one is already all set to go.

The PCBs are 1.5" x 3" - virtually identical in size to the CVP. Like the CVP this one includes 2 holes for mounting on standoffs as well as a split Euro/MOTM power footprint. It will run on 12 or 15v supplies as it includes an onboard regulator for both the +12v and -6v rails. It's therefore suitable for use in any format.

BOM

Resistors:
[2] 100R
[1] 200R
[1] 240R
[2] 560R
[1] 6.8k
[2] 15k
[3] 22k
[1] 47k

Capacitors:
[2] 10/22/47uF electrolytic
[2] 0.1uF ceramic
[1] 3.3nF poly
[1] 10uF electrolytic [SILKSCREEN REVERSED ON V1.2 PCBs]
[1] 10uF electro; optional for +12V regulator

Pots:
[3] 10-50k audio, 9mm Alpha or similar
[1] 25-50k linear, 9mm Alpha or similar
[1] 2k multiturn trim
[1] 100R multiturn trim

Transistors/ICs:
[1] LM78L12; optional for +/-15V supplies ONLY
[1] LM337LZ - be sure to get the one in the TO-92 package [SILKSCREEN REVERSED ON V1.2 PCBs]
[2] 2N3904 (or similar NPN) - Matched pair (optional)
[2] 2N3906 (or similar PNP) - Matched pair (optional)

Misc:
[1] 10-pin .100 header, male (Euro power) OR 4-pin MTA-156 header (MOTM power)
[2] Ferrite bead (can substitute 10R resistor)
[2] PTC resettable fuse (.050 hold, .100 trip) - can replace with wire link
[2] 1N4001 diode
[4] 3.5mm jack, 16PJ138 or Erthenvar/Thonk style
[4] Davies 1900H-style knob, or any other ~12.5mm-diameter knobs you prefer.

TRIMMING
1) For use with +/-12V supplies, jumper pins 1 and 3 of the 78L12 and omit the adjacent cap.
2) Adjust the 2k trimpot until the output of the LM337 is -6.0V.
3) Adjust the 100R trimpot until the output has no DC offset with the output knob at 12:00.

I'd take one.
Is there a big difference between this and the MA Mix ?

I'd be interested in the PCB only. Anybody interested in building an MOTM panel for this little guy?

In function, no. Pretty much the same thing.

In execution, yes, very different. This is a discrete transistor circuit known for its interesting clipping behavior where the mix is an opamp-based circuit with an emphasis on a clean, transparent audio path.

Would be a nice change from opamp-based mixer !
So I'm interested for at least 4 PCBs, maybe more depending on final price.

Many thanks for the info negativspace.
I'll take two!
Have your Mix module and use it all the time, having a mixer with some character in the same size panel would be cool.

Yeah, bad night for double posts I guess.

SVF is coming along, but I have some building to do so it's on the back burner for a couple of weeks. Aiming for a finished prototype by the end of next month. :tu:

I would like two PCBs but no panels, please. I was just going to perf-board a transistor mixer, but I am very lazy.

This is like the STG mix?

This would be a nice companion for the Minimoog filter clone!

I'm in for four pcb's and panels!

Cheers!
