Picked this up off of Matrixsynth - I love the panel this guy did for the Clangora (click on it to enlarge it). I dig his philosophical essay, too.

Nice essay. He really is a candidate for the MEGA DRUM SYNTH !! I love the retro style panels he did Cool Sort of Wiard like except not blue.

There is a somewhat complete photo essay on his site on how he made the panels. Electro-etching I believe. There is also a cute little function generator that uses an XR2206, but I'm saving mine for XRVCO's and the THMPS.

Yes, very nice panel for the Clangora.
Hey GoodRev, are XR2206s hard to come by for you? Finally something I have a plentiful supply of which others need. (It's usually the other way round! Very Happy )

Especially the parts about the new DJ culture. Shit, now you become a superstar for playing other peoples music? Stretch limo and millions of dollars in your pockets to put together a play list in NI Traktor? Nice Shocked

I will only applaud if they build a MEGA DRUM SYNTHESIZER or a really slick Clangora like the one on Matrix Syth !! Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Cool

Nah, I'm just saving em to get the most use out of them. In the circuit i mentioned, although very useful to me at one point, using one of my XR2206's would now be like taking the old ferrari down to the corner to get some milk!

Subject description: clangora wiring question
Reply with quote  Mark this post and the followings unread

Hi
I'm in the midst of wiring my clangora panel. I've spent the better part of the afternoon making a wiring diagram, and I have a quick question:

I need a bit of clarification on the envelope generator portion of the schematic (fig.2, attached below). Pots R83, R84, & R85 (all decay controls) are shown schematically as not having their wiper connected to anything. Should I assume that pin 3 and pin 2 on the pots are jumped together?

So following this assumption, R85 pins 2 & 3 would get tied together and connected to ground and pin 1 would go to the board (to R2).

For the other two (R83 & R84), Pins 1 on both pots are tied together and connect to the board (to R1) and Pins 2 & 3 get jumped together and connect to their respective board connections (the two diodes D3 &D4)

Are these sound assumptions?

Thanks a lot
Peter

Yes, the notation is for a variable resistor which is a pot with only one end and the wiper connected. And indeed it's better to connect the wiper to one of the ends, as the 1st terminal, and use the other end as the 2nd terminal. So when there is a bad wiper contact the resistance will not go to infinity.

That symbol is confusing, because it looks like either end of the resistance is connected, and the wiper is not connected to anything, but, it's just a symbol. Conventions sometimes get in the way of understanding.

Thanks for the help. It makes sense now. Maybe I'll actually finish this tonight (!)

Our daylight saving just got turned on last night. So I've just lost an hour of goofing off time! Sad Laughing

CLANGORA ALERT !

Is there any modifications to consider about Clangora design ?

Does it worth the trouble (3xLM566) ? Confused

Should I go for etching a clangora pcb or better wait and build two MPS (Mega Perc Synth) ?
This is here the real dilema...


At least, does it really tend to be a little bit "cheesy" ? Laughing

I have a UD-1, Cloned 808 kick, Cloned 808 snare, and a Clangora... for what it's worth, the Clangora is BY FAR my favorite and the one I touch the most. Can't compare it to the MPS yet, though. For me, this module is priceless.
