I just found what I think is the part Cliff Jack Sockets CL1384.

I'll ask Shawn.

Long story short. I tried to adjust the contact bend and failed.

I am looking for the replacement part, I haven't located the manufacturer or a source.

I will hopefully see something on the Doepfer group, here or maybe locate the info through googling.

There's a blurry shot of three of my modulars as I was re organizing a few days ago. Sadly I have less space right now so most of everything else gets brought out as needed.

I was using the A130 Linear.

The Doepfer stuff is fun and I have a bunch. I like the fact that you can get some distortion with it but it wasn't right in this application and it made me think that have an alternative signal path might make sense.

good sounding VCA

Last night I was patching up a wonderful bubbling thing with mostly Livewire stuff with some Doepfer EGs & LFO's. I wanted to have more flexibility by using a VCA after the filter but the sound quality dropped along with the volume when I tried. Who makes a good sounding basic Euro VCA. I don't mind...

May have found a solution, though it may be temporary.

I tightened the frequency knob while putting a little bit of pressure on the back of the circuit board.

In terms of the CV knobs, they had to be plugged into another device.

The whole thing is strange but I suspect minor.

Frequen Steiner trouble shoot

This is an updated version from what I posted in the Yahoo group. This unit was bought used and did work at one point. Without anything plugged into the CV inputs The unit will stop passing signal unless on puts a small amount of pressure on the upper right of the board (near the IC) -In this mode i...

Blacet Scanner

A frac'ing blessing.

First test, Heisenburg switching between Cyclotron, Binary Zone and Noise Ring modulating a M15.

Great module if you like to bug or if just want some automated switching.

yes, sounds like the first run, they were a bit large and had to be returned and trimmed. And then had stuff like that liquid electrical tape(?) on the edges. So, if it doesn't have that black gunk maybe some electrical tape is a good idea. Or, maybe you got one that wasn't fixed/trimmed for some r...

Livewire rack contact

I just bought some more Livewire and it seems like the dalek I have makes contact with the rack. It may be a first run version.

Is this a situation where I should just put some electrical tape on the contact points?

Thanks.

I just got a used one and although I really only tested in for functionality I did notice it really needs to be mounted into the case, otherwise it does make a bit of noise.

Thanks. Pictures always help.

I may luck out and only need one busboard on this rack as it is due to the grande sizes of some of the modules.

Thanks consumed, Interesting. OK..

I wonder if the fact that this rack will have less modules will help keep things under control.

I will also ask the supplier of the power supply.

Doepfer bus boards

This could have gone here or DIY but it would have looked like an even dumber question there. I am setting up a Eurocase with a different power supply but using the Doepfer boards. This power supply does not have multiple taps for the +/- connections. Does that mean when I use two board I run into o...

Hopefully this will help someone else.. I recently bought a Schroff rack and was having a hell of a time finding the right screws to mount modules. I had heard the size was M2.5mm x 10mm and I'm hoping that's right. If anyone knows whether or not I am right abut the size please post. Finally, here's...

Based on my experience with Moog power supplies I am assuming that once the bus boards are mounted (insulated of course) and connected to the power supply I can simply measure with my meter that I am getting a +12/-12 and know whether I am good to go. Whether or no I will have to do some sort of add...
