Re: question about synths

Welcome claudineskiles! 1) All of these sounds except the birds chirping start with a noise source. Noise sounds like the static between FM radio stations. It is filtered and shaped by an envelope and VC Amplifier to get the various sounds you've listed. The birds will start with an oscillator inste...

Re: Selling Eurorack Modules & Complying to Directives

On their website, Mutable Instruments-and a few others- list the directives their modules meet. You can start there. As you've noticced, not everyone follows all the rules. There's quite a bit of look the other way in the Eurorack world with regard to directives and rules. It's admirable you're tryi...

Re: VCO temperature stability testing chamber

The question is whether it matters as much as all that. Vintage analog synths have been using the simple method with 3% tempco parts -which are often much worse in 3350 PTC adherance than the 3% implies. And yet we have generations of 'wonderful' music from them. You can find on this site and others...

Re: Korg Arp 2600 Arrival Date

Note to synth manufacturers: An arpeggiator should always be syncable to external MIDI and external CV/gate, and it should always TRANSMIT the arpeggio signal via MIDI and CV. I don't understand why so many synths have arpeggiators that can't transmit their note pattern to other synths! I agree in ...

Re: ARP Omni 2 - slide pots?

Curious about the PCBs, though - as far as I can tell it pretty much looks like single-sided bare solder traces sitting atop the PCB, so I'm unclear on how it would be possible to "ruin" them (as compared to more complex boards where you can pull up the traces from under the coating, or where there...

Yes, those are five volt regulators in the schematic.
Another cool John Simonton 'hack' that is good to keep in mind as 78xx in older less-used and so strange values disappear.

Re: ARP Omni 2 - slide pots?

Socket is fine, but overly expensive if you're willing to re-drill the submodule mounting holes to .073" . The extra material needed for the tail on the one you linked which allows mounting in the original main PCB hole makes for extra cost. Otherwise it's ok. It also raises the height of the SubM P...

Re: Parts for Intellijel Rainmaker?

As long as we're here, the little metal dome sits on the two shiny rectangles inside thecorcular cavity of the switch. Because it's domed it suts above the center circular contact. When you press the top it deforms the dome to touch the center contact, and clicks while it deforms. That's the tactile...

Re: Parts for Intellijel Rainmaker?

Notice the leftmost switch in your photo has all large black 'spots', and the others are missing the melted deformed tops. This means you already have some breakage in at least two more switches. So those would be good to glue while you're in there. It may not be all about the cat. Sideways pressure...

Re: Parts for Intellijel Rainmaker?

Beware the -missing?- shiny little metal dome that sits between the two parts in your photo. it's conductive, and if it bridges other parts of modules in your case later, it means more problems. Check that it's not rattling around anywhere. Good news is if you find it you can probably repair this sw...

If by filter mod you mean changing R2,7,12 and 17, you can just put another four 4k7's on the VCF PCB solder side. 4k7's paralleled being 2k35 it's fast and easy. Don't even need to de-solder the VCF from the main board. edit: While you've got it open, be sure to clean the sockets for and pins of Q1...

Thing I hate with the fury of a thousand suns: the fact that the filter board is attached to the synthesizer board by means of big chunky standoff wires soldered directly in, which is going to make it hell to remove and to replace. God damn it, ARP... Those 'wires' are actually Mill-Max .040 dia pi...
