MINDREADER PCB/POTS- limited run. pitch to cv
MUFF WIGGLER Forum Index -> Music Tech DIY  
Author MINDREADER PCB/POTS- limited run. pitch to cv
E.A.S.
Hey Guys!

I've been having quite a few requests for a new run of these PCBs and pot kits. So, I'm doing preorders for a new, limited run of these boards.

I have a enough pots for a run of about 50 kits. That will also leave enough extra pots in my stash for the future.


in the new run, all of the bug fixes will be implemented.
Shipping last run was a bit more than i thought is be, so its been slightly adjusted.


Below is the description, payment and ordering information, pulled from the first run.

Original Thread.


DIY Euro panel

Thanks again!!

-Mike

-----------------------------------------------------------------


Hi guys! Ive been working on this one for a little while and I think its about time to do it!

Next in the 'Miss 10' Series is the "mind reader" external signal processor. For those of you that don't know, this is a pitch to voltage converter with built in preamp, band pass filters (w/ individual hi-pass and lo-pass freq. controls) envelope follower w/ trigger outs. Really fun for processing all kinds of inputs, not just the VCOs and guitar type inputs. In particular, running a drum machine like a 606 into the input and out into a vco is really fun!

specifications.

1. Control section
Input signal level
Low cut frequency
High cut frequency
CV adjust
Threshold level
2. Input & output
Signal in
Amplifier out / 0V ~ +8V
Band pass filtered out
CV out (F/V) / 0 ~ +8.4V
ENV out / 0 ~ +5V
Trig out /
3. Indicator (LED)
Peak indicator
Trigger indicator

Here is a link to the korg ESP manual.


There is a special pot that is needed for this, a quad 100k (c taper).
Ive talked to several pot manufactures about making these parts and they've quoted me about $7 each (at 100 pieces)
You'll need two of them per board.

P.C.B. + 2x Pot combo

ESP PCB + 2 quad pots---$50 +$5 US shipping ($8 international shipping.)


If you've ordered the pcb +pot combo and you want to order extra pots it's $7 for each additional pot.

I'm going to be placing the order for the pots and pcbs in about a month. (mid-late May)

Paypal Payments to Michael (dot) alan (dot) schmidt (at) gmail

Remember to add your Muff-name to the payment, to help keep things straight!

Thanks!

raisinbag
so do we just put interest here? I'd love another kit.

Edit: paid the piper for a kit. Gave a bit more than last one for shipping, let me know if you need more.
E.A.S.
You can certainly express interest here in the thread!
Keep in mind though, since this is a limited, more than likely last run, it's a first come first serve sort of deal when it comes to payment.

Thanks!

You can certainly PayPal now. The pots are in stock but the pcbs still need finalizing and ordering, but that should be a rather quick process.

Thanks!

The 'bugs' Im talking about is the pcb trace fix and transistor silkscreen error outlined in the first run Build Thread.

The preamp overall, in a HIFI sense, is pretty well colored.
with the Gain knob cranked it can get a really awesome sounding distortion.

It can be really clean, but depending on input level, it can get overdriven rather quickly.

FWIW those of you who have the older boards... these fixes are simple and if you follow the instructions in that thread you'll get a perfect module on first power-up. (I speak from experience.)

Hey guys!

quick update:

I'm going to leave the preorder open for about a week longer.
After that i'll place the order with the PCB house.
As soon as they get in I'll start shipping them along with the ots out to you guys.

Speaking of pots, I did a quick count of the quad pots I have in stock and I have a little more than I originally estimated, so, If you'd like to order a set there a still some pot/pcb combos available!

This is fun!

Thanks everyone!

2 questions:

Does anyone have a demo? Negative space?

Should I be getting extra pots? I've got at paranoid feeling that in 2030 I'll be like- shit gotta replace that pot! Seriously though- anyone know typical lifespan for a part like this?

I don't have a demo (although it might make sense to make one.)

Jason, make a demo! Rockin' Banana!

the physical quality of the pots is pretty solid. The filter pots on the module are certainly tweakable, but most of the time, if using the pitch follower section, you're going to set these filters to knock off harmonics so the tachometer circuit works more efficiently. So, in other words, they wont getting as much action as say, the cutoff knob on a 303. That said, I more than likely wont be ordering anymore of these pots, so if your thinking you might want spares for the future, you might/should get a couple extra for assurance.

So, I've done inventory on the quad pots I have in stock, and the number of orders I have so far and it seems I have enough for about 50 more sets, plus a few extra in case some get lost by the post, damaged.. etc.

Ive done most all of the PCB fixes/ updates, just a few more optimizations, then I'll order!

Hey guys and gals,

Just wanted to give an update.

First off, Sorry for the delay!
Over the last few weeks Ive been insanely busy with both my day and night jobs, some big new projects, as well as a couple of minor set backs.

That said, I haven't had the chance to put the PCB order in yet.
I will place the order on December 28th and should start shipping early/mid Jan.

The pots are in-stock, packaged and ready to go. Just waiting on the boards now.

Thanks everyone and happy holidays!

In the immortal words of BadBrains "The youth are getting restless" hihi

I've never had a single reply from Mike @ EAS, whether it be to confirm an order, or reply to a question.
I'm waiting on 3 of his PCB's which were paid for via Paypal on the 24th October 2013.
I understand people have jobs and family commitments etc so I'm not getting too worked up by it just yet.
I also don't think negativespace would do collaborative panel runs if he had doubts or concerns.
The silence is a little strange though, we need a tumble weed smiley.

I've seen Mike go quiet before, but I have never been stiffed. I agree it can be frustrating not to get any response though.
keninverse
Mike's a stand up guy. He does go offline sometimes but I've always received paid goods from him. At the moment I have PLENTY of other projects that require attention. The beauty of this situation is being surprised when it shows up and being even more excited about starting the build. I just hope the guy's doing all right.
woodster
It's good to hear that others have had positive experiences with Mike and EAS.
I'd love to be one of these people, and if it was the case, I'd honestly also be here singing his praises.
Sadly though, I've not been given the opportunity to experience the same situation, as the only dealings I've had so far have involved a near five month wait, with absolutely zero communication from the vendor.
This is not really very appealing to me in all honesty.
A lesson leaned I suppose, as it all just goes towards me thinking twice before getting involved with any future projects where people expect payment upfront for items.
This is a real shame, as I'm not a pessimist by nature and am very keen on DIY projects, and also happy to support small ventures by buying into them.
I have fingers crossed that we will get some closure soon.
xpmtl
yeah the wait is getting long for a pcb and 4 pots...
diablojoy
hmm i paid also back in october but no panic yet, chinese new year may very well have gotten in the way of any board production, going by posts mike was keeping this open as long as possible so he may have missed the boat.

Hey guys,

Sorry for the delay!

Things have indeed been a bit crazy lately! I'll spare the details but it hasn't been fun. i.e. HD crashed on my main computer (lost a lot of stuff)

good news,

Ive also relaid out the pcb to easily connect to negativspace's pot pcb.

other updates include:

added some modifications to allow gate to output both s-gate and v-gate.

added extra labeling on pcb to ease in wiring.

added extra decoupling caps.

added onboard resistors for pitch "offset" control.

fixed transistor silkscreen.

fixed LM339 traces. (no jumpers needed)

---------------------------------------------------------------------- -------

I'll be adding to this thread, B.O.M., Schematic and parts placement image for the new design, shortly.


PCB/POTS will be shipping in less than two weeks.

Thanks everyone!

Kytopia
so let me get this straight,

If I would use a microphone on an acoustic instrument (like a trumpet) and feed the signal to this module, the module would transform the tonal information into pitch-correct cv to feed to an oscillator? please please please tell me this is the case eek! eek! eek!

EDIT
More importantly, is the kit still available? for if this thing does what I think it does then I will do horrible things to myself if I don't get to do the things with this thing I think I'll do when I have it.

Nice! EAS- mind showing the back/wiring of your build?

a link to the build thread would be good in the original post, maybe EAS can update. For anyone reading here:
https://www.muffwiggler.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=76398&highlight=mind reader+build

Is the board the same as in that thread or have revisions been made?

Finally, I am 95% done with an updated mouser BOM with all the parts for 1 board (Modifying the existing one to add ICs, "common" resistors, and hardware.) I plan to share my cart for others.

The last thing to add is hardware- 6 jacks, 2 LEDs, 2 LED holders, and the remaining 3 pots- for those I will prolly use lil alphas, sound good?

I got all excited about this project when I saw it, as I have had oodles of fun with ms-20s and the pitch to cv, but then I remembered that they were scaled exponentially.

My system is the standard 1v/oct, can this be modified to scale correctly or would I need to buy/build another module to do that?

Just wanted to say this thing has been getting a ton of use for me, not for pitched sources but as an interface from my drum machine to the modular. The preamp distorts just perfect for a kick drum if you crank it, the envelope out get run to filters and the waved folder on the dpo, and the v/o out into any oscillator fm or v/o input provides excellent laser noises.

Yeah, I LOVE the distortion the preamp gives!

Im not sure if I've shared this patch before, but, If you patch the preamp out, back into the preamp in, it turns the preamp into an (basic) OSCILLATOR, with the gain knob controlling PITCH, this (now) oscillator is already pre-patched to the filter input so when you take the audio from the filter output, you got a really fun little noise maker!!! Oh, and the V/oct out will track this VCO! Also, with the threshold setting set right you get a square/pulse output to boot. Give it a try!

Hi E.A.S.

I just come across this thread and wondered if there were still any pcbs, pots and/or panels left?

I have this mad vision of making six of them driven by a roland gk pickup smile

Yep! Both PCBs and Pots, "in stock".

I've started sending out 2 complementary quad pot adapter pcbs along with mindreader orders. (while supplies last)

And I do still have a couple of Mindreader panels left, and a pair of HADSRs.

I think I've managed to get cash flow working properly again now that I've sold a few dozen SVVCFs... that means I'm open to the idea of re-running all of the panels. I will do my best to start a thread for those by the end of May. (Gotta fill one more order, then I should be OK to take on another low-margin project like this one.)

More panels for just the mindreader, or the other Miss10 projects as well ?

I'm thinking the whole catalog. thumbs up

Needing two of the quad pots and fancy connection boards, already have the mind reader PCB. Are these available separately, or should I send $ for the full package?
negativspace
Mike should be able to help you with that... and if he's out of the pot boards I still have a bunch.
jasonh23
That's so great, thank you. Mike, two of those quad pots available? seriously, i just don't get it
Cheradenine
Payment made fo a PCB+pots set !
Thank you !
etburke
This sounds awesome.

So I'm clear, the $50 kit includes the main PCB, 2 pots, and the pot PCB? Or just the main PCB and the pots?
Starspawn
Also interested, pm me details if available smile
negativspace
If any of you need a panel for these (Euro) I'm down to two; there is also a thread going for re-orders right now.

If any of you need pot adapter boards and Mike is out, or you bought your boards before we had them made, I still have a handful on top of the 4 I need to package with the remaining panels.

I'd love a PCB + two pots + adaptor PCBs if available but I'm slightly confused about who can provide them and if they're available!

The price is for the main PCB and the 2 custom quad pots. That said, for all resent orders Ive been including them free of charge. (until I run out)

I provide these (see first post of the thread for ordering details) and yes, these are in stock.

Thanks for the interest!

What kind of input levels/impedance does the input take? Are you guys plugging your guitars directly in? I imagine those of you using mics are running them through preamps first.

For anybody finding the end of this thread. As of 24th March 2016 Mike has just confirmed to me he has some PCB/pot sets left
tpoolan
Yup, money sent for one set. cool

Any chance you could confirm receipt of the Paypal transfer please, Mike?

Cheers,

Tim

Try emailing Negativspace (Manhattan Analog). I don't think he's on the forum anymore, try jcoates42@gmail.com .
agustindead
Does anyone have a spare PCB/pots kit that's willing to part with?? I'd be interested!
Mr.T
Hello Mike (E.A.S.) do you still have PCB and pots in stock? I'm interested in a set. Too bad I didn't find this board earlier.

There's this:

I'm still trying to find out if the v1.6 BOM is the same as the v1.5 BOM though.....

If you can't dig one up, I think I have a spare in my board stash. (With pots and the pot boards.)

I also have plenty of panels. SlayerBadger!
