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 !
New kit arrived: Sonic-Potions Penrose Quantizer
- FG 085 miniDDS Frequence Generator
- Fluke 7250A Universal Counter/Timer
- Oscilloscope Tektronixs 2225
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.
