hi hanley,

connect your switches like shown in the picture...
don't forget to connect the jumper on the left switch pads (the little vertical red line)...

if I couldn't find ceramic caps of the correct value, I would use poly caps of the same value...
the electrolytic capacitor is polarized so I guess it won't work instead of a non-polarized one...

my two cents... Surprised

Hi all,

got round to taking some pics of my WSG - built using Unkle Krunkus' stripboard layout and put into an old CD drive.... managed to keep the faceplate intact and use the existing audio jack, am well pleased with the results!

Cheers, Joel

So, I'm interested in doing some mods to my WSG. The first I was considering was a starve switch with a starve knob. Although I'm not completely savvy, I believe the WSG is already drawing less than 9volts. Would this be a recommended mod in any of your opinions?

Thanks.

Yeh why not? I believe someone already commented on doing and did do a starve mod. And they liked it. I put mine in an A/V box that alreadt had spdt switches in it. So a did some "circuit bent" mods to mine. Go for it. Cool

It's a pot in series with the battery which makes it seem like the battery is at some stage of dying. So it "starves" the circuit of power. Makes some cool effects on quite a few types of circuits.

So Lorenzo made this PCB:
http://www.musicfromouterspace.com/analogsynth/YOUR_FIRST_SYNTH/lor_wsgpcb.GIF

I am trying to follow it along....except instead of burning a PCB, Im using some project board stuff from radio shack.

My main question is: Does Lorenzos PCB use the EXACT SAME parts list as is given on http://www.musicfromouterspace.com/analogsynth/YOUR_FIRST_SYNTH/YOUR_FIRST_SYNTH.html#LORENZO

I seem to be missing some places to put some resistors and capacitors.

Like R1 and R2?

R3?

If I had any hair left, I'd be pulling it out.

Any help please?

Cheers
bob c
