Re: [AVAILABLE] Blacet VCO2100 + build thread

yes we've been able to substitute the following:

Available Taiwan Alpha PN
RV09BF-20E1N-175F-B50K-A
RV09BF-20E1-175F-B50K
RV09BF-20E1-175F-B50K-0C

We will be stocking these, given the high MOQ from Taiwan Alpha.

Its a good discussion all-- my only point in the prior post was that we would, if possible to arrange, love to offer PAIA kits via our store synthCube... so if they chose to take up those designs again we would talk with them about any interest in selling them to us... that's all :) More broadly, a...

Re: update on Blacet kits migration to synthCube

Attached (for anyone interested) is the current working draft of the synthcube converted kit BOM for the blacet vco2100. (Notwithstanding the potential change to IC socket P/Ns noted above) Thoughts and comments welcome; this would be an example of how synthcube kit BOM would evolve for other blacet...

Re: update on Blacet kits migration to synthCube

So, to be clear, part of why we are doing this whole synthCube thing is because we love learning new things. And this counts, for sure!! Unapologetically, we've moved from 'cheaper' dual-wipe types ('solder type' using John Blacet's term') to what we **THOUGHT** and were **TOLD** was a much better a...

Re: update on Blacet kits migration to synthCube

Fascinating. Curious-- if not made for DIP pins, what's the intended use for the machined pin sockets? We went with machine-pin type (mil-max, not cheap fakes) because we had heard enough feedback about the sockets of the solder-type 'pulling out' when ICs were removed for troubleshooting or replace...

Re: update on Blacet kits migration to synthCube

thanks all for the feedback--- quick update as we continue to scrub the VCO BOM-- 1) Resistors--- we will maintain the 1% metal film and 5% carbon resistors specced by John Blacet. This keeps the synthCube BOM aligned with the original Blacet BOM. 2) IC sockets--- John used the 'solder type' sockets...

Definitely no 2700-4700 kits being made by PAIA.
That is really a shame. we'd offer them via synthCube if they were available!

Re: update on Blacet kits migration to synthCube

Please put in the effort and retain the 1% resistors that John specified. I just looked through the following schematics for my modules: LFO2430 EG2070 VCA2100 FF2310 VCO2100 Most of the time if a 1% has been specified, it's for very good reason, eg. specific output & amplification levels, adsr tim...

Re: update on Blacet kits migration to synthCube

I would have no problem with 1% resistors and it makes sense to me to reduce inventory. If the parts are bought in bulk they might even be cheaper. YES!

Happy to reply-- good question, and one we get a lot! The answer -- it depends on a bunch of factors, the core of which 'what works best for the designer?'

update on Blacet kits migration to synthCube

Quick update-- We're continuing to work on integrating the Blacet designs into synthCube--- it's taking a bit longer than hoped-- we started down the path of relying on the original Blacet BOMs and parts bins for kitting, but ran into a couple of issues we are sorting out: a) specific part numbers f...

Random Source is a great place and THE source for any remaining JH original PCBs--- please post if you're able to obtain one. We'd be interested in doing MOTM format panels if there are a reasonable number of PCbs out there.
