Re: [Project] Turing Machine Mk2

Evening all, Long time since I've been around these parts, good to see it as active as ever. This is probably the wrong place to post this but also seems like the right place. If anyone is looking for built Turing Machine PM me as I have two brand new ones that I just finished. They're up for sale o...

Thanks gents. Sorry, focusing on the sine output was probably misleading. I only used that as it was the clearest illustration of the output issue. It happens on all waveforms, some worse than others. I've tried swapping the ROMs and the problem persists. I think my next strategy is going to be swap...

MiniWave Problems

I have two MiniWaves here, one built by Blacet (I believe) and the second one that I recently built. The second one is misbehaving. Have a look at the photos. The first one the the output of Bank 0 / Wave 0 fed by a triangle wave. You can see it's outputting a decent sine wave as it's supposed to. T...

Thanks Tony. Yes, I suspect you're right about envelopes. I think he has a bit of a hybrid system (Euro and Frac): "The cv inputs seem to be set for 5v but my modulation sources are 10v.This means I either don't get much usable range from the COTA knobs or I have to use an attenuator to reduce the l...

COTA Modification

I built a COTA VCF for a customer last year and he'd like it modified for 10V control voltages (instead of 5V) Is there any information on how to make these changes? I presume he is just talking about the CV 1/2 inputs.

Thanks
Neil

Rollz-5, Meng Qi, rev 3 board. Hoping someone can help restore my sanity with this. This is the 4th one I've built but I've never had an issue with them before. Couple of issues I can't figure out. The first one is probably straightforward though I'm stumped because I didn't deviate from the specifi...

A question about the rolls caps. Am I right in thinking the intention of the PCB is to have two rows of rolls (3,4,5,6 on each row) as in the picture below? Then is it wise to have the same cap value for each node in each of the rolls? i.e. the 3-rolls on the top row all have same value but maybe ha...

I'm in the process of adding two of these to a larger project and there is no real room on the panel to add the save/write/load functions (so just one input, 4 outputs) which means I have to pre-write and load the windows.
