Diary of my Journey in Modular Land (21)

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*

Werkstatt – SSRLabs SM042 Kotelnikov

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 !


Werkstatt – New Stuff: Sonic-Potions Penrose Quantizer, Equipment

New kit arrived:  Sonic-Potions Penrose Quantizer


New instruments:

  • 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.

Diary of my Journey in Modular Land (18)

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.
