Been tweaking some of my modules the past couple of days when the free time allows. Some circuits never worked for me so I replaced a few duds with proven winners for my set up.

Out went the 4018: I replaced it with another 4040. Since I had a 4051 and a 4512, I could now set up each with their own divisions. Dueling banjos.

Out went the YAVCO: I'm sure my wonky early wiring a few years back was partly to blame, but I traded her in for a shiny new 4046 vco. I like it!

Out went the 4001 set that took up 9 jacks: I replaced it with 2 modules. 1. A 4 input NAND gate made of one transistor and some diodes and 2. another 4046 pitch tracker; these guys are like vcos in the way more is always better.

Here's a clip that shows the 4051 and 4512 playing octaves. I tend to create my sequences with this setup as opposed to using counters. You could vary things more by putting more logic between the clock sources and their inputs, but I'm a simple man. Rolling Eyes

Trying to get in the habit of recording more.
