Profesh'nul, heck, I'd be in for a couple as well! Due to the sound variations possibilities from it (as I've said earlier), I could easily use at least 2 of them! (I WILL have 2 regardless, as I've got yet another idea for it that I wish to try out).
A professional run though would require a certain # of boards, as per other mass buys that occur here. I myself never HAVE gotten a board done professionally, but I'm debating my first for multiple constant current sources for my 1V/oct. step sequencer. That'll all depend on minimum order requirements board and / or cost wise.
Here (professional run), I've nay a clue.
Edit: Ooops, sorry Dan! I forgot to reply to your mesage.
Yes, I DID see your posting of slaving the CMOS chips in the Lunetta thread! For some reason, I've never THOUGHT of that, even though I knew years ago, of the slaved CA3080 in a VCA that worked quite well. I may have to look at playing with something like that it the future, when I get down to work on some noise circuitry.
Sorry, I haven't done any work on the layout for a week or so. I've had so much other stuff going around in my messy little head! _________________ What makes a space ours, is what we put there, and what we do there.

We possibly sail in similar boats. I've been working on my sequencer engine since July 7th with at least 3 more weeks to go, to completetion; started a new 3U panel's artwork, 3 weeks ago, hoping to finish today, for 4 VCOs; want to get my KAOS VCLFO/VCO prototype and my Topps Buchla 281 clone done. And then there's my Klee, not yet started.
That's why I'm not worried about your not getting it completed, yet.
Development with the other chap, is on hold for the moment. We're awaiting the Thomas Henry drum unit first - apparently this September, not wishing to interrupt anyone's interests in IT. Once the Henry unit has come out, things shall then be moving forward.
maybe this is already covered in the thread and i will probably missed it: what do you use the external in for? cascading liquidHHs? then we could add an inverted output for cascading purposes only, in order to keep the phase (since the external input goes into the 2nd stage of the gain chain, thus inverting).
would it make sense to voltage control the range? it could be done with a transistor, i think.
i am looking forward to your comments, since i have not had the time to breadboard it yet... _________________
Matthias - the External Input was originally intended for Noise. I put White Noise into the current beta of the Liquid Hihat that I have built. With the white noise mixed somewhat into the background, it helps to give it a more 'realistic' hihat sound to the output. That, I haven't worried about the Inversion, with.
Julian: before I bought myself a Cynare PCB from Ken to build, I made my own version of the Shimmer portion itself. I added CV versions to 2 of the Shimmer's 6 clocks. In my version then, this helped SOMEwhat, to give differing frequencies in the patch, but I wasn't completely happy with it. The way that I did it gave a limited frequency range.
I later bought the real Cynare and built that - ending up wanting variable frequency possibilties. Instead of modding the Cynare itself, I came up with the Liquid Hihat, using a Voltage Controlled Clock and a copy of the Shimmer section. I then made two of each of these, XORing them together and adding the external input, into which White Noise, or just about anything else could be pumped in.
There's talk going on of having a PCB made. I have one more test to do before we can start finalizing things but for the last couple of weeks I've had every spare building moment completely consumed by my latest sequencer design!
( Nervous twitching on )
26 years man, I've wanted a sequencer that could do things that this one is capable of and it's finally, FINALLY - hopefully, only days away from getting it's first panel completed! It'll only be 16 steps of semitones, but they'll all be accessible in ANY order.
The first 4 step portion IS working in 1V/oct. right now. I'm just completing the full 16 step semitone unit at the moment.
Once THAT's done, then I'll get back to finalizing the Liquid Hihat test bit and hopefully soon after, we'll be able to carry on with it.
For the moments though - my 26 year long dream (since first hearing Tangerine Dream) is almost complete it's first step. ( Nervous twitching off )
Just to let everyone know, I've done up a PCB for the Liquid Hihat, I am having a small test run done at the moment, a couple will go to Ryk and Uncle K for beta testing, once we have worked out any bugs, I'll consider doing a production run.
The boards are 100x100mm double sided, with MOTM and Dotcom style power connectors and all the panel connections are brought out to headers.
I'll post some pics once the prototypes arrive (should be 2-3 weeks)
I've also done up a 3 space MOTM panel for it, and am working on a frac version.
Please don't inundate this thread with "I'll take XXX" posts, I'll let you know if and when we go into production.
Thank you VERY much for taking this forward Dragon's Lair! As all may know, I've only been concentrating on my sequencer for the last 6+ weeks, meaning to get back to the Liquid Hihat. I'm VERY happy that you've gone ahead with it.
I can't wait to beta test it.
I second that in a BIG way!
Thanks heaps for letting me check one of the boards out!
I'll do my very bestest, fastest, most accuratest prototyping work to make sure it's up to scratch! (And I'll make it look real sexy too!) _________________ What makes a space ours, is what we put there, and what we do there.
