Subject description: Build Manual for Adaption of the Scott Stites Appendage Ribbon Controller to Eurorack Modular
Reply with quote  Mark this post and the followings unread

The Appendage EURO adapter PC board is HERE and is designed to allow the legacy appendage printed circuit board to be housed and powered within the Eurorack synthesis environment or in a standalone enclosure. The adapter PCB is the interface between the front panel and any appendage PC board. The adapter accepts all the front panel switches, jacks, potentiometers and connects to the Appendage PCB via header connectors thus eliminating hours of cable fabrication and front panel wiring. The adapter PCB is secured to the appendage PCB via six 11mm standoffs, and twelve 3mm screws creating a sturdy and reliable module assembly. See photo section in the manual for an example build. The adapter is not only good for new builds but also for those who haven’t built their appendage PCB’s yet because of the large panel wiring job. It’s a design whose time has finally come!

One kind request, if you ever do another run....

... add another hole for sleeve on the ribbon connection. There is a footprint for a stereo jack that matches the footprint of the other "thonkiconn" jacks, the green ones on this page:

https://www.thonk.co.uk/shop/3-5mm-jacks/

I was able to twist one around and make it fit, and I think it's centered, so I don't need it per-se, but those jacks are more likely to be around in someones inventory than the kobiconn stereos, because other modules are starting to use them particularly for MIDI connections.

Another pad with a trace to the original sleeve position would be all it takes to be able to use either one.

Thanks so much for that excellent suggestion!! I shall make the footprint for the ribbon jack usable for both jack types Cool
