I would replace the sliders with a switch of some type.


At least for the method of how I use the Klee, I'd have to disagree. This would sort of kill things for one step sequences. For the higher range sequences, the small adjustments do make quite a bit of difference.


What Scott is saying makes a lot of sense, and he has been using his Klee alot more than I have, so I will humbly make a 180degree turn on the "lose the sliders" opinion, and bow to the experience of my learned friend. Very Happy

Well, actually Andy, it's not such a bad idea - it may work quite well for others. I think we'll find that one person's Klee is another's Clover Laughing

My Klee is in Kansas, but I'm in Penang, Malaysia right now for a good long time ('til end of July). Not sure if it's *really* 10,000 miles, but I figure it's close to that. I'm closer to Andy's Klee than to mine.

Hmmmm.........

Well,.... It's only a little flight down to Brisbane. Then a connector to Coffs Harbour. You get weekends off don't you? Charge work for it. Research and Development it's called. You can research the state of SDIY in Nambucca Heads, and we can develop a hangover together! Laughing

So here's mine. I probably get the award for ugliest klee panel yet.

Folks who also look in the modularsynthpanels yahoo group have already seen this, and the .fpd file is available there - I can post it here also if there's any interest.

I just wanted something that would fit right into my otherwise mostly motm format synth. It's actually Clickmrmike's design, with some slight tweaks of the switch positioning and labeling. I basically took an old milton panel design and modified the bottom of it.

Apologies for getting the electro-music Klee label wrong - I didn't read all of the applications and build thread until after I designed it.

So anyway, this panel is on its way to me from Seattle as of now, and I've got the boards half stuffed, and many of the panel parts are here or are on the way also. When I posted this design on modularsynthpanels, it seemed to get things going, and Thomas White did his amazing oval design, which'll also work for my purposes, so I'll probably end up getting one of those once Scott Deyo starts producing them cheaply. I like this straightforward, linear design, but I also really like the oval design - one can have 2 klees, right? This is assuming that eventually there'll be a third board run (hope!).

That is really nice. Is that an official Wiard implementation of the klee, or a look-alike version?

sorry, i've been out of town and missed this.
yep they're momentaries.
there's conductive carbon on each silicon button and it contacts a pad on the pcb.

cool, sparkfun finally added diode pads to their pcb (to avoid ghosting in matrix switch circuits). i wound up making my own pcbs...

At first glance I went "ewww, that's some serious funk". But then I found I couldn't look away - that panel has some serious depth, and looks like it'll be real fun to use. Cool variant on the steampunk thing. Thanks for sharing!

Thanks!

ok, ill try find a camera (and ill chuck into this post)


Basically i found lots of sheets of 1mm steel which were rusty as hell (only surface rust and only slighty correoded on one side). i pulled out our angle grinder and cut it to measure a moog unit system. desinged the panel in photoshop ( i actually designed it for brass but i made it in rust to suffice for the moment but i think ill keep a whole cabinet in rust now )

drilled the holes with a drill press, and labeled it by hand with a sharpie. drilling wasnt too hard, it was a lot easier than i expected however i never had drilled much aluminium before this. after making some aluminium panels for other people i must say it is so malable and easy to work with Smile
so then i added led bezels and some cheap knob that im using for my whole cabinet. now waiting for switches. (200 on the way) i hate waiting for international deliveries Sad

i have an enitre rack near completion of modular done in rusty steel. i like it a lot. it is a good means of recycling, it looks a lot different to most people's modular systems, and it is so much fun using angle grinders and heavy metal tools Smile it also has a industrial edge and seems fitting for a modular synth.

attached is my design, soon to come high res pictures if i find a camera
the rust has a really amazing natural corrosion patterns so ill put some time into take the photos right once i find a camera

Ok, here's 2 pics of my ugly duckling klee in it's current state. Just a ton of wiring to do yet. I wanted to get a halfway decent pic as I'm off on vacation next week, and won't be able to work on the thing, and need a pic to keep my head in the game. I just threw the knobs on loosely for the picture - don't want to mess them up while soldering tons of wires on the back - but also wanted to have a feel for how the thing will look like completed, and so I could fulfill the instructions on the bottom of page 21.

I finally bite the bullet and designed a panel for my Klee. Very Happy
I used Fonik's panel layout as a starting point and modified it quite a bit to better suit my tastes (bigger sliders).
The price estimate for the panel was a positive surprise: it will probably cost only a little more than 100eur Smile

That panel looks WILD!! Very Happy And it's JUST inspired me as well! Since I use wood for my panels, I'm going to search around / keep my eye open to see if I can find any flat BARK, in any type of wood. I love the look of yours extremely, especially in the Industrial (mechanical and musically) frame of mind! Twisted Evil At the very least, for future art on my panels, I'm going to keep the 'industrial' in mind, pictures wise! Smile

Now - the other reason for replying - 200 switches?? From WHERE? How much??? With all of the sequencers that I have planned at the moment (2 more Ray Wilson MFOS sequencer digital boards, just arrived in the mail - weeeee! Smile ) I'm going to need at least 100 each of ON/ON and ON/OFF/ON switches. I'm looking for great priced sites.
Where are your 200 coming from and if eBay - please let me know when they arrive; how long they took to ship and their cost! Smile
