I can't believe what I just did!
I decided to actually submit a vote, so I clicked on submit vote. Then, before it went through I realised I hadn't actually picked yes or no. I panicked, pressed "no" and then clicked submit vote again! Embarassed Laughing

Same here, so I'm silently hoping it won't be with us for at least a couple of weeks Very Happy

I can't afford it, can't justify it and I've got too many unbuilt boards as it is.

Right then, I'll go for a set. Very Happy

I've got as much resistance to fun toys like this as a chocolate fireguard......

Dang, Mosc, I feel the same way about being allowed to call it the electro-music Klee Sequencer.

Here's a file that I whacked Tom over the head with, though it's a bit altered from what Tom saw. It's a list and description of the controls and connectors that are part of the electro-music Klee. I figure it might be useful for anyone designing a panel and also to let everyone know what they're getting into. It may look like a lot, but compare the number of controls to any other sequencer of mid-level complexity, and you'll see it's really not all that much. For a sequencer-type thingy anyway Very Happy

We'll get the parts list together as well.

Cheers,
Scott

BTW, the electro-music Klee Sequencer does not use any switching jacks. So, one can use one's preferred type without worry. Banana, 1/4", 3.5mm, RCA, alligator clip, or the moistened tongues of an army of red spotted newts should all work equally well.

A Bugbrand EM Klee - I wanna see that!

Cheers,
Scott

one might want to take a look at my sketch for a frontpanel too. it will give a good overview, i would think. all elements arranged in a more or less logical manner. just a guess...

Yes! Beam me up for one set Scotty! cyclops

Question: will there be any sort of parts kit offered and if so will it include the hard-to-find moist-tongued red-spotted newts? Thanks!

Germy!

Hadn't thought of providing parts kits - that would be nice.

Hmmmm...

I did mention this in an earlier PM Very Happy However I feel it may be a logistical nightmare unless whoever providing the service is someone who already has a similar service set up.

mmmnnyesss.....I do remember it being brought up, but never heard anything more about it (or pursued it myself). Did we ever contact him?

Anything yet on that Klee laser? The complex has been installed in the extinct volcano, and here I am with nothing more than a pool of sharks and a slowly lowering platform. I need pizazz, dammit!

Cheerios,
Scott

Would that be such a laser thingy that tells you when to put what component where on the PCB? Would handy Very Happy

What, we're live?

Tap-tap. Yep. Huh.

I'll run it up the flagpole again. I know he's pretty tied up with some other projects, so it's hard to tell.

Jan - the laser is specifically for dealing with British special agents of the double-oh type, CIA operatives, door-to-door salesmen. I'm hoping Tom can rig something a bit more potent than the average laser pointer - I simply refuse to do business with Acme after that catapault incident.

Back to the non-laser based electro-music Klee Sequencer:

The plan is to order some prototype boards, make sure everything is OK with them, then move on to the bulk order.

I'm going to try to get some tentative prints of what the component layouts will be like here. It's not an easy task with Express PCB.

Cheers,
Scott

Hi Scott, Tom, and Unkle K,

Congrats and Kudos for a truly inspiring circuit. I would like 5 sets, a couple of friends and I will be building them together, thanks.

Cheers,
R.

I can probably swing the most of the parts, since there's no unobtanium. I was really (silly) only "concerned" about those newt things. Wink

But the newts are the secret ingredient Very Happy

OK, bear in mind these are just quickie images I rigged up here. I had to print, scan, and crop them. The digital board isn't really crooked - that's just the way it scanned. Very Happy This is to give an idea of the complexity of the boards, which really aren't too complex at all (Uncle K did a great job of arranging the components). We'll have much better documentation than this.

Notice all of the connectors (the "J" numbers) - these can be either Molex/Amp type connectors, or you can solder wires directly into the pads. The advantage of using the connectors is that you can plug/unplug the boards completely from the front panel if you choose. A few of the connectors also interconnect the boards. There is a single connector on the Analog board for the power supply connection (power and digital ground are carried to the digital board through a separate connector from the Analog Board).

We will have complete wiring diagrams, tips, etc. Also a calibration procedure - the calibration will only require a voltmeter, and is a pretty simple affair (turn the trimpot until you get the desired voltage at the testpoint).

You'll probably notice none of the ref designators line up with the previously posted schematics - the schematics had to be updated to accomodate using Express PCB. They were originally drawn with the program, but, in doing that, I was just using the program as a fancy schematic drawing tool. I wasn't paying any attention to doing it so the program could recognize the schematic enough to design a PCB. In the process of getting everything together, we gave each board its own set of components and reference designators. So, there is a BOM for each board. We'll also produce a composite BOM so one knows how many 100K resistors in total one needs, or how many diodes, or how many newt tongues, etc.

Cheers,
Scott
