Had some problem with a plug-in causing a 500 error and thus the blog was not accessable.
My work as a software developer was overwhelming, eating up all my time and still wants to do so. At the moment I am recovering from a severe lung inflammation and it looks like having some chronic problem.
Nevertheless looking forward to do more “Klangtüfteleien” and blog about modules, ideas and this and that 😀
I posted classifieds and on various groups that I am looking for and buy defect Eurorack modules to learn and study current techniques and how to do troubleshooting. Got a few already and more are on their way – even one from Japan !
So, lots of work waiting for me but hey, it is so much fun to work with real hardware again.
If you have one you want to get rid of just send me an offer me[at]klangtueftler.com
Pre-ordered the Data module from Mordax, to be delivered (hopefully) February 2017.
Worrying a bit about german customs.
In November I will start buying PCBs / Panels for various modules and then go on a shopping spree for components. A list of modules I am going to build will follow.
if anyone is interested in joining just drop me an email.
Got the Snazzy FX Ardcore incl. Expander offered second hand like new for 50% of the new price, could not resist and bought it. Took only an hour or two till the first program was uploaded and working.
Although there was the usual hiccup with the drivers on macOS it worked ! Even without disabling the Apple drivers.
Have to test now on new macOS Sierra … Thanks winter is coming and long dark days/nights for deep sound explorations.
A bit silent here but work load from project is very high at the moment and leaves me only little spare time for patching / experimenting. Hopefully after the 20th I get more spare time.
New modules arrived I will write about asap and there are two new tracks on soundcloud.
More following …
PS.: did I mention that I killed my Kotelnikov VCO ?? *frustrated*
Soldering finished !
After some mistakes will it work ? Quite a bit nervous !
HURRAY it works and sounds fantastic !
That motivates a lot !!!
Got new assignment from Modular 101 course: need to make a piece of music with some motion and evolution to it.
Just am not very creative at the moment, missing sparkling ideas, but NEVER GIVE UP ! 😉
Nearly forgot: A week ago received the first defect module Make Noise Maths V1 Classic as respond to my eBay classified ad
Half of it works, other half seems dead. Will check it soon with new equipment xD
I made a big mistake here:
Mixed up IC sockets and went crazy cause could not find where to put some component.
My apologies go to Dmitry, owner of SSSRLabs, for saying there is a mistake with the kit.
Had to un-solder and replace the IC socket – took quite some time but got it done !
And finally I lost a capacitor …
Many, many thanks for your patience Dmitry!
Current state of work on the SM042 Kotelnikov kit. Another evening and hopefully it is done and WORKS !
