That's a ravishing shade of blue you have there on the vco tuner Smile
I have to admit,. I thought about you as soon as I picked blue for the front panel. smurf

I didn't know the paint would be that shade of blue btw, I expected it to be darker. but I like it Very Happy

Here's what just got finished. Just a quickie project that wasn't even in my backlog, but a friend sent me the pcb after I fixed his version of this, and then... well here it is.

Another one with the beautiful and oh-so-affordable roof flashing from Home Depot. And the panel is Front Panel Express with their new powder coat finish - I've been meaning to try this on a cheapo panel, and here it is. It looks great, seems really durable, and is REALLY black. I'm not sure it's worth the extra 15.50 they tacked onto the price that the ordering program didn't show.

MFOS Noise Cornucopia:
- Old PCB but I put a 1M trimmer in place of R8 to be able to adjust the noise
- Bridechamber front panel with slow/fast switch, but I put an on-on-on switch in there and connected the /2 (fast), /16 (center) and /128 (slow) positions

This will be my only analog noise module in 5U and I'm quite satisfied. Good extension to my Curetronic DigiNoise (which can be clocked by the Noise Cornucopia for extreme madness).

So back on page 4 of this thread I showed off the Korgasmatron II I had just finished. Just before I finished it, David Dixon announced that he had further perfected his circuit into the korgasmatron III, and now I've built one of those:

the aluminum boxes in the front row are some old 60s era RF (i think) filter boxes i have, i have a couple dozen of them, they need a lot of work to get them to that state though, they need to be sanded to remove a coat of paint and there are some metal protrusions that need to be cut off and sanded down aswell. they are nice small, sturdy boxes though, i like them.

Thanks PHOBoS Smile

It was a weird looking Phillips Magnavox surround speaker. I did skin it, originally it had dusty cloth covering it. Sadly, even though it would have come in a pair, the thrift where I bought it couldn't find the mate. I've looked online as well and while I see reference to it, I haven't found any other pictures much less sources for more.

A difficult birth but with great help from this forum I was able to get it to work:

Ken Stone CGS58 Dual Utility LFO

Mods:
The big knob indicates a 10-turn 20K pot on LFO2 and it has a 2K trimmer instead of the 4K7 resistor and a 330N cap.
LFO1 has a 1K resistor and a 3.3 uF cap.
Slow mo fun. Cool

only just got round to finishing this and tuning it up despite starting it over 2 years ago! how time flies when your going through a divorce.... Laughing

completely pre patch version of the doepfer DIY synth and a midi module. the front panel was designed to sit nicely in a 7inch record flight case, and is a standalone unit for use with a midi keyboard or computer controlled, but it does have CV and gate inputs.
