[ORDER] Model 1011 Discrete Oscillator - 4U

Post by SlightlyNasty » Sun Jun 11, 2017 1:08 am

EDIT: THIS RUN IS CONCLUDED - BUT THE 1011 WILL BE BACK FOR YOU TO ORDER IN THE FUTURE!

Most of you looking at this will already have seen the interest check thread HERE, but a quick recap and update is probably a good idea.

The Model 1011 is an entirely discrete and full-featured VCO for the Loudest Warning 4U format. It uses 41 discrete transistors (mostly BC550C and BC560C) and a supporting cast of jellybean components, and is designed for quick and easy construction with no wiring required. The oscillator core is temperature compensated and has good tracking and stability.

There's 1V/Oct, Log FM, Lin FM, Sync and Symmetry (PWM) inputs, and three outputs. Output A is crossfade-able between sine and triangle, Output B crossfades between saw and pulse, with the ability to mix in suboctave as well. The third output is the raw suboctave.

This demo track is all done using my Slightly Nasty system with two 1011s, I've tried to avoid obscuring the sound of the oscillators, so other than the usual filtering, a ping-pong delay, and some touches of distortion from the Model 2211 Transfer Processor there's not much post-processing going on here, just lots of double and triple-tracking of parts. I was just going to do a simple little one-track demo for this, but it ended up being a 24-track monster in 23/8 time because I got a bit excited. It does show the sync and FM sounds though, which is nice, and the main melody stretches over a good 7 octaves at its most hectic point.

And an older, gentler demo:

The front panels are CNC-machined and UV-ink printed, and come in both satin natural anodised and white powdercoat finishes.

Documentation for the module is here (note that these are updated from the versions in the old thread). The manual is very in-depth and is recommended reading for anyone interested in getting their hands on one:

Model 1011 Manual - V1.0 Rev B
Model 1011 Schematics - V1.0 Rev A
Model 1011 BOM - V1.0 Rev B

Pricing has unfortunately changed a touch since the interest thread, and I've had to add a dollar here and there to make it viable for me. The current price list is:

PCB -US$22
Anodised Panel - US$30
White Powdercoat Panel - US$34

Shipping, 1-3 PCB - US$5
Shipping, 1 PCB+Panel - US$7
Shipping, 2-3 PCBs+Panels - US$14

Image

Some quick disclosure on shipping times:

I have an inventory of PCBs and panels ready to go, but be warned that if I run out of the front panels there may be a lead-time of up to a month on getting new ones manufactured. Unfortunately they're quite expensive to produce so I can't afford to keep huge stocks of those at the moment. Going by the interest check thread we should be alright for the moment, but it's worth mentioning.

Also I'm extremely busy at work for the next couple of weeks, so while I'll try to get these sent out ASAP, there's also a chance that there may be a delay if I simply can't find time to pack and post units.

Let me know if you're keen! Additional modules will follow, starting with the Model 2231 Asymmetric Slew Limiter, which is a super-versatile dual slope generator module in the vein of the Serge units.

That is one fine-looking PCB (and the rest of this project looks and sounds very impressive as well). In for two boards. Congratulations on the first module release.
