At last I have all the parts together for the Sound Lab, ready to start building. While I was waiting I designed my own front panel.........

Any comments.

Cheers

Bill

nice!

IMHO in the VCF section the "signal in" connectors shoudl be 1/4 jacks and the "voltage in" banana jacks.

Thanks man,

I'm not a musician and I just want to make some weird noises and effects with the sound lab. I wanted to fit everything inside a relatively small box hence the smaller jacks.

I'm gonna stick with the 1/8 jacks and use adapters. The Jacks are Tip jacks made by Johnson components and the pots are all 16mm.

More pix to follow as I start to build.

Cheers

Bill

Why not just 1/4" jacks? I like them better...

there is a old topic jacks vs. banana and there is a discussion about bananas and jacks.
but jacks 1/4 or 1/8 are better for routing external audio signal in because the grounds connect on the same plug - if you use bananas and lets say wan´t to connect your CD player to VCF you need to have a extra banana for the ground - you have it right way on the VCA module so why not also on the VCF?.

a good example is Damion Romero's panel
it has also 8 ground points for bananas. for connecting whit external devices.

but everything depends on how you want to use your SL.


take a look at these topics
Signal Input Question
Audio In?

there is a .pch2 file that emulates Sound Lab.
whit this and G2 demo you can explore SL patching possibilities.

Emulation of the SoundLab analog synth. Basic building blocks, knobs, and MIDI only.

I'm sticking with the 1/8th jacks for audio signals, and the smaller tip jacks for voltages. This way I can fit more into less space.

I finished the board yesterday, next comes drilling the holes on the front panel of the case. Im using a Hammond sloping front box purchased from Allied Elec.......

Model # 1456KH3WHCWW

I will post some pics as I progress the case.

oh Man! tip jacks and specially tip plugs are so cute - also the Hammond slope case... - i´m curious to see the patchable micro SL.

I will try and take a few pics as I drill out the case and assemble all the pots, switches and jacks etc.

Maybe I will start a new thread entitlted 'Mini Sound Lab Construction Photo's' or something simular.
