I took a short break from re-wiring my clock divider to build the YuSynth Minimoog filter. I etched the board using Press n Peel and I ordered the Bridechamber component kit just to speed things up. This was sort of an impulse project. I am quite pleased with how it turned out. It worked from the start with no troubleshooting necessary. Once I got it calibrated to my liking (I just matched it by ear to my Minimoog), I installed it into my big Synthesizers.com system and whipped up a simple sequence to show off what it can do. It sounds fantastic! The patch was super-simple. I used three Dotcom oscillators, sequenced with the Q-960. The oscs were sent into a four-channel mixer and then off to the YuSynth Minimoog filter before being spat out the VCA. I used an ADSR to modulate the filter cutoff and the whole thing got a slathering of Echoplex tape delay. I manipulated the filter's parameters while the sequence played.

Nice demo Scot, one question... from where you get the dotcom panel? did you make it yourself? is it skilscreened? ( at the end were thre questions Wink )

Thanks, Thalassa. I had a blank DotCom panel that I bought some time ago. I screenprinted it myself using vinyl ink of the sort used with bumper stickers... that stuff is very durable, if a bit noxious! I used to own a screenprint business and still have the inks and equipment left over from that. It'd probably be better to use acrylic inks for this, but I have a lot of these vinyl inks left, so I used that instead.

I've used similar techniques with polyester paper and the results are quite good. For me the vinyl/polyester front panels are the best solutions if not silkscreened panels are available.

afro Sounds pretty authentic to me...I really need to whip my mini into shape but it's the power supply, I fear, and so it'd have to be off to the synth hospital.

Gettin' my TD (Heldon actually) groove on here: dancing

Great job, Scot & YuSynth!

Thanks! The influence Heldon had on me cannot be overstated. Coincidentally, I was listening to Pinhas' East/West and DWW while I built this filter...

Man, get that Mini fixed! There's nothing sadder than a neglected Minimoog. I had mine restored by Wes at www.analogics.org. It's played like new since.
