Module and PCB update new 11/17/2010 WAS: New modules ...
|Sorry, no photos or audio...
I received some PCBs:
Small production run:
Sample & Hold
Small Production Run:
VCO-B with Square and Sawtooth
VCO-B with Sine and Triangle
By "small production run", I mean less than 10, sometimes just a handful.
I'll try to catch up the website for the new modules.
The modules left to go:
Voltage Follower (Slew)
Some keyboard. Either the two voice or the MKB. I think Nyle would like me to do the MKB, but for my own goal, I'm still leaning towards the Two Voice. I have a Fatar keyboard and just need to figure out how to make it behave like a bus type rather than a multiplexed. The MKB actually could use the multiplexed keyboard easier, so I don't know...
So, really the end is in sight for the capture of all the Synthasystem modules. I still need to punch out some panel designs and then actually finish building the things. I'm hopeful by early next year I'll have at least one of every module working and racked.
I will probably offer the Microcon as a PCB, too. I don't think I'll do the Synthacon as the Synthasystem is much more interesting to me. The Microcon is interesting as a standalone desktop or rackable synthesizer. However, it does use Vactrols which I have heard are banned in Europe now. Nyle has suggested he might have a workaround, so stay tuned.
New modules? Well, Nyle and I have discussed this and have a couple of ideas. I'd like to see a formal trigger delay and Nyle has some other interesting ideas. So, if interest is really there, maybe.
I've got new modules on the way. If you are interested in buying PCBs, please let me know by PM or email. I'm probably not going to shell out money for big PCB buys unless I have a lot of persons committed to buying.
VCA: Small production run of PCBs ordered
Transistor Matching: Small production PCBs ordered
Frequency Divider: Prototype in and debugging one divide section.
Peak Selector: Prototype in and working
VC Trigger Generator: Prototype PCBs ordered
Sample & Hold: Prototype PCB buy this week
VCO type "B", Square and Sawtooth output: Prototype PCB buy this week
Phaser, Voltage Processor, Voltage Follower are probably next up.
