Hi,

This is my first post but I have been lurking and absorbing here for a little while.

This is a quick demo of my first real Lunetta type unit made out of a 4017 and 2 40106s. I've made APCs and 40106 oscillator synths but not combined with anything else.
I found a 4017 in a compartment of my toolbox [I'm not sure why, I don't even remember ordering it] and so built a sequencer based on the baby 10. I then tried hooking up the sequencer outputs to the oscillators of a 40106 and liked the sounds I was getting out of it so decided to mount it all up to some banana jacks [forward planning so I can later combine it with some more modules].

Anyway, here is a video:




Thanks!

Welcome aboard tbone hello welcome. Nice sounds and great looking unit. Hope to see and hear more of your stuff.

Very nice looking build. What did you use for the panel?

Thanks!

The panel is a sheet of clear perspex which I have painted black on the underside. Using a clear sheet let me mark out all the points to drill holes etc on graph paper which I then stuck underneath to get everything neatly aligned. Painting on the underside gives a nice glossy look, but when putting it altogether I did chip a little paint off around one of the LEDs which does show on the front. If I were to do this again I would probably try and find something to apply over the paint to prevent that from happening.

very nice work tbone, I really like the shine and the size is just about perfect for a lunetta.

What are you planning to add to this machine? I've build a few 4017 sequencers myself and I always added a 4066 cmos switch to mine so you can gate things like APC's, circuitbend toys, etc.

XOR, XNOR and NAND gates are also a lot of fun and very easy to do.

Looking forward to seeing your progress.

Thank you for the kind words!

A way to use it with some of my circuit bent gear is exactly what I was hoping to add next to this. Something along the lines of the sequencer on the casper electronics site [http://www.casperelectronics.com/images/finishedpieces/sequencers/switchScheme.jpg] looks to be ideal.
Tjookum, I do have a 4066. It is supposed to be for my echo base delay pedal build, but I need to get a few other things for that anyway so I may well use it before hand....
