Subject description: Advice needed on DIY projects using ic's found in old video converter
Reply with quote  Mark this post and the followings unread

This is my 1st post hear, so I apologize in advance for my Noobness. I have built various fuzz boxes and guitar related effects but currently, I've got the bug on simple noise boxes, drone machines, sequencers and the like. I found a handful of cmos chips in my old video converter from the 90's.

The ic's:

MC14538B - A dual, retriggerable, resettable monostable multivibrator

TC4081B - Quad 2 Input AND Gate

MC14025BCP - Triple 3 Input NOR Gate

MC14013B - Dual type D flip−flop

MC14040B - 12–stage binary counter

I can surmise that I can make a 12 step sequencer with the 14040 ic, but I'm at a loss for the other ic's. Any ideas or wacky projects worth doing with some of these chips? I'm more an experimentalist rather than someone looking for purely musical devices.

Regards,

Draal

Hi, there's lots of good stuff you can do with all that. Might I suggest you check out the Lunetta section of the forum and have a look at the beginner and intro threads?

Cool

Thanks droffset; I'm still wading through all this great stuff and learning a lot from the beginner threads. I'm already seeing some of my assumptions (like cmos identification demystified. Embarassed

My interest in Lunettas started after I built my first APC and wanted more options. "What if I connect THIS chip to THAT input..."
