I've had a nice email back from Jim, and he says "Go for it".

There seem to be 2 schools of thought here - a small but expensive run, or a larger cheaper run, but possibly longer term. If most of the takers are from the USA, then the best idea would be for someone stateside to do this, because the postage will be a lot less that way.

I'll do some serious pricing work, and get back with some real options. I'm not in a hurry, so let's see how things develope.

Thanks for the update Mike, I prefer the larger / cheaper batch, not in a hurry as well and as this project is going to be expensive as it is I think cutting price on the pcb's is a must.

I would be interested in the larger/cheaper run for sure.

I'd be interested in one of these boards too, Mike. large run/lower price small run/higher price, I'm cool either way.

I remember that Mikado sequencer piece getting some mention on AH a few years ago. I liked the look of it a lot and always wondered what became of it. It looks like a lot of fun.

Just putting my hand up to be counted for a set of boards
I have thought of doing what fonic did but always chickened out
Well Done Fonic
But if theirs a board runs I’m in

This circuit sounds ace, count me in for a board if there's a PCB run on the cards, just been listening to these mp3z from Jim's webpage totally bonkers!

Count me down for one of these boards, if they happen! It'll wait to get completed, but I'd rather grab the PCB while it's (hopefully!) available.

I basically followed Jim's panel on pg5 of his manual, except single inputs for vowel and resonance.
'3 CV inputs and outputs' - these are the 'shaper out & filter cv in' sockets - don't omit these, you can use the module to shape CV signals too.

Indeed. The panel and about a hundred "priority interruptions" has kept mine in the to-do pile. At least the board is stuffed.

Hello...just thought I would drop by....

I saw a question about permission...just want to assure everybody that this is all about having fun. The vocal filter is in the public domain, and feel free to make and distribute them any way you can. I wish I could participate myself Wink ....

Best of luck to you all...

-Jim

Thank you for the warm welcome...

I am not too sure what the NM list is...it must have been quite a while ago if I had subscribed...

Probably not then, NM is for Nord Modular.

Yesterday when i visited Fonik, i got "infected" by the Vocal Filter Fever (aka VFF).

Is somebody planning/doing a small (or larger run) of the PCB ?

just to choke off any rumours: i just continued populating the board after a longer break. Laughing

this is a monster of a project. it runs alongside. i think it will require a 3U case of it's own, since there are a lot of controls... nevertheless i have the plan to definetely finish the unit THIS year!

Just saw this thread - this filter sounds amazing. If there's a run of boards I would be very interested.

I totally forgot about this one...

Err, well, still interested!!! I really hope someone is so nice and does a run of those pcbs. Or should I do that?

Are there any corrections necessary to Jims Gerbers, or is it just needed to send the Gerbers to a manufacturer and get working boards? If the latter is the case, I really might consider doing this...

Best wishes,

Tobias
