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 !
New kit arrived: Sonic-Potions Penrose Quantizer
Still looking for a better Function Generator, Digital Multimeters, NF Millivoltmeter and other audio measure instruments. A HAMEG 205-3 Oscilloscope is on its way.
Am a bit lost at the moment. My job consumes pretty much of my time and leaves tired and un-creative afterwards.
But the show must go on !
Got a lot of work to do in my job with quite some responsibilty.
A bit unlucky last few days concerning audio stuff.
An IC socket was missing from the Kotelnikov kit so had to wait till a box with sockets arrived yesterday. Now I can go on.
Still no clue why the Rebel Technology Stoicheia does not work 100%. Have to wait for an oscilloscope. Easier to follow the signal path.
Bought a sec hand oscilloscope, coming home it did not work properly, was quite a bit frustrating. At least got an agreement with the seller who refunded half of the price.
Had a hard time to find another at a good price asap. Hopefully arriving next week and praying that it really is properly working.
Worked on new patches but nothing really worth to share yet.
Next kit is waiting: SSSRLabs SM042 Kotelnikov.
Ready to go !
It took only 3 hrs concentrated work on Sunday to finish the Rebel Technology Stoicheia module kit. Made a mistake with one poti, where a leg was bent. But could resolve it.
I built in a case, connected and was frustrated as it did not to work. I checked everything again and again, re-connected, tried and tried again.
Finally with right patching I realized it works just the LEDs do not ! So for the moment I leave it like it is, but definitely come back to it and check.
Package from Russia !
The SM042 Kotelnikov DIY Full Kit finally arrived. Heya ! But will still go on with training my soldering ability a bit more before starting to build it.
My first flying bus cable extension today xD
It works perfect !
