I did some de-glitching. I skipped the ground-pin on the hotpots and put a 10K ohm resistor between signal and ground instead. Not a fancy solution, but working great.

Thanks for all the info. Great project!

maybe not exactly SDIY but it has knobs and makes sound Very Happy

mods include:
-8 x individual volumecontrol
-51 patch points
-6 patchable switches
-1 global pitchcontrol
-spotlight and colourchanging led

I just finished the Yusynth VC Panners and Output.

I spent a good deal of time on the layout because I wanted to arrange this to fit onto a 6"x9" panel.

The module works nicely. The Output section's tone controls are a nice touch -- bass and treble cut/boost which are very effective.

Now, to do simple panning I can use this module without having to tie up a VCA pair. Also, the Aries output section is just too noisy so this module solves quite a few problems and frees up VCAs for me to use for other things.

Also I wanted to say thanks to this site and to all of you that are a part of it. I couldnt have gotten this far without this forum. about two and a half years ago I started with a WSG in a cigar box. now I have a large modular that is the envy of all my flat synth friends.

thanks for everything

So, here's my modest contribution for 2010. I got slowed down a bit as I am somewhat finishing my modular and that required more careful thought on which modules to build.

In the attached picture it is the upper cabinet plus some elements in the main cabinet plus the Klee, Mutron and analog VU meters to the right.

As you can see, I am not investing the professionally made front panels and am satisfied (to some degree) with home drilled ones and black stickers (would like better looking panels, but that would mean a tremendous expense, one that I can not take at the moment Sad )

Built in 2010:
Klee Sequencer.
Barielle Mutron BiPhase
1 x Oakley EFG
1 x Oakley Discontinuity
2 x Oakley ADSR/VCA
2 x M185 sequencers + Quantizers
1 x Haible Living VCO
1 x CGS Serge VCF
1 x CGS Twin Wasp Filter
3 x MOTM ADSR
1 x Haible Varislope Filter/Phaser
1 x Tellun TLN-904
1 x fonitronik VC ring mod
1 x MFOS VCO tuner helper
2 x Waveshapers
2 x MFOS quantizers
1 x Power supply for upper case
1 x Stereo analog VU meters with backlight (for that warm feel...)

I have ordered the Time Machine PCB, but this will probably be a 2011 build as well as some buffered multiples.

Merry Christmas

Reply with quote  Mark this post and the followings unread

I'm trying to do a simple project each christmas (starting from last year).
And for this year I had saved myself a "christmas tree" velleman kit,
which I build and than turned into a simple sequencer called, "The Treequencer" santa

It has 2 AMV's with adjustable speed/dutycyle and the outputs of those
are fed into a binary to decimal decoder (built around a 4093) to get 4 outputs.

(more pics can be found here)

bad timing having to post after the last two fellas, but i just finished my soundlab plus and i'm pretty proud of it. excellent compliment to the MFOS 10 step seq. It's a stock SL+ with home etched boards. I also included the guitar and drum triggers which I wholly recommend. Thanks to everyone on this forum who inspired and educated me to pursue synth DIY!
A quick video too: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xnE5fRxKi2U

It's really cool to see what we all have all accomplished over the last 12 months. Some pretty great stuff - large and small - SDIY is apparently still pretty strong - and that thrills my soul! Congrats all!

Yeah, I'm pretty much 100% DIY theses days (cuts down on expenses and lets you accumulate equipment)...

The wood is your normal ACE or Home Depot kind of wood (18mm thick) that I cut myself and then put it together.

That oldie tough is actually a lacquer for wood that I paint on all sides. I take as close as possible brown color lacquer that I can find and then do 2-3 layers until I get that oldie color.

Same here. I started out by building kits and progressed to DIY this year. Besides building a lot of cool things, I've accumulated a nice stock of parts which makes it easy for me to build something "on the fly".

To everyone who has posted here, I enjoy seeing your work and it all is an inspiration to me.

Well guys, thanks to you lot I finally embraced the dream and started building the modular I'd been thinking about building for like... ten years. Since I was a teenager, really.

Anyway, I started in late 2009 but didn't get anything finished until 2010. So I say they're all 2010 builds. And I don't think I'll be getting anything else finished in the next few days, so here's my 2010 vintage frankensynth.

Top row contains:
2U Hole
1U passive mults
2U MFOS Vco
1U YuSynth saw animator
2U TH XR-VCOs
2U TH XR_VCO
4U waveshapers -- CGS designs and the Ian Fritz 5Pulsar.
2U Hole

Second row is:
2U MFOS dual AR
1U YuSynth ADSR
1U Hole
3U TH SN Voice
1U YuSynth Random module
1U Digital LFO based on an S. Takagi design
2U CGS Dual LFO
2U of Glorious Wogglebug
5U Hole

Bottom row:
2U YuSynth Arp filter
2U CGS Steiner filter (awesome)
2U CGS dual wasp filter
2U Audio/CV Mixers (shown here as hole)
2U LPG
2U MFOS dual VCA
2U Hole.

The case is shelving the local public library was dumping, cut sanded and refinished. You can see it's a little gappy... best I could do without a table saw. Seriously considering buying one of those.

Of course the modular bug has me fully in it's clutches now, and I have far more partially assembled than would fit in my remaining slots. I'm also realizing that 5U does not scale well when you start building drum machines and polyphony.

[As an aside, I'm thinking about taking the MOTM form factor and just shrinking it (miniMOTM) for drum machines. At 80% scale (4U instead of 5), I could still use 1/4" jacks and get 12U in a 19" rack. Slightly smaller knobs and all'd be good.]

Okay I haven't posted here on E-M in a while, but I have to thank you guys for much inspiration over the last year or so while putting this thing together.

It's not even done yet – I've completed a dual 292c lopass gate, and a Mankato (which isn't working for some reason), and I'm in the middle of wiring up the Living VCOs and dual 281. The panels are etched copper.

Anyway, here are the pics!

Great work!

Could you tell me please where you got the larger skirted knobs? Does anyone know if they (or maybe clones) are easily available in the UK/EU?

Cheers!

Sure, I took one today. The panel's transparent mailing label on acrylite. They look quite good for the amazingly low cost of like $2 (includes cutting fees!) per panel -- as well as the ease of assembly. Drill the holes in the acrylite, put the sticker on, xacto holes out of the sticker, done.
