Just as information, are you also planning a panel for the interface only?
At this time, not really, no. Just the basic Easel stuff isn't quite enough to fill a whole 17x7" panel.
But perhaps someone can come up with a smaller (half-height) panel or something ? That would be seriously cheaper, for sure.
If demand is there, I could easily design such a panel, but would rather wait until we get the rest of the stuff going...

The "optional" bit referred mostly to people whom want to build their own BOB, just using the PCB's. I expect quite a few builders doing their own [panel/BOB] designs based upon my easy-going boards. I'm absolutely curious about what ingenious projects are going to come out of this... MIDI expansions, Euro-converters, quad-joystick controllers, etc... can't wait. :party:

Just one VTLC/3, please ? :hihi:
The VC-Panner section has the most expensive bits... precision op-amps, .1% resistors, and a couple of THAT's thrown in, just for good measure.

The expander looks superb - I couldn't commit to anything at the moment, later in the year though! :guinness:

If the v2's Program Card slot is 100% compatible with BEMI's, then yes it will.
(I've heard it is; but I believe the ModOsc Range Switch patch point is missing on v2, which is not a problem)

I've measured it once, and if I recall well it's 10.5V. But it's of no importance to this project. (EN_B {Enable} is not fed through on my 416 Interface)

Papz expander card has the MO range switch & it works fine with the Rev2 .
The complex oscillator range is whats missing i believe .

No Range switch on my CO. :hihi:
Perhaps it's the Polarity switch you're referring to? Which, BTW, is also missing as a BEMI patch point. (would've been way cool to have, tho)

But I'm happy to hear the Rev2 is 100% compatible with the BEMI.

Nope . Its the MO range switch , like i said .....

If you look , it was in response to a rev 2 question quoted above it ...
Dunno about BEMI , but in response to that rev 2 question , i'll confirm that a MO range switch is possible .....
Not quite sure why you mention the CO ......

Say Guy
Did you say you've been busy playing shows with the BOB ?
Under what name ?
Any demos of 'everything in your studio' synced to the 208+bob ??
