The 2019 Show Us Your DIY Builds Thread

Post by sduck » Fri Jan 04, 2019 11:12 am

Woops, forgot to create this thread on the first, as i usually do. I was on the road and all that, blah blah blah.

And while there may be people who actually finished stuff earlier in the year than I did, here's what I finished last night...

Probably not as funky as the feedback module but......
I didn’t build that! I built a wave runner LFO.

I built 2 CVPal modules in less than one hour, and I can now see 3 different USB-MIDI interfaces on my Mac:

A couple (twins?) of beauties!! I am biased because I do love the simplified labelling you use. It gives a clean look and the knobs give all the ornament you need. :tu:

Did most of this in December but the panel arrived in the new year, so was able to finish it in 2019.

It's a CR-78 Snare in Frac, based on the Oshpark pcb mangros shared in this thread (I still have a couple of spare pcbs if anyone is interested).

Here it is (next to its DR-55 clone cousin).

It is the first panel I have got from Schaeffer using the printing option - very happy with it.

Thanks! I was trying to keep it clean and obvious as to the functions.

I kind of hate those knobs which are cheap ones that came with the knurled shaft pots I bought on Amazon. I've been making my own knobs for most of the modules I build but it certainly makes things easier to use these and I'm not going to pass up "free" knobs.

Arduino ADSR with a few challenges with the built.

I forgot to drill the loop envelope mode switch, so now its ADS!

Also added a led to give visual feedback of the envelope out.

Finally replaced the last of my home etched boards. I had 2 3340 VCOs that were some of my first DIY builds from the early 80s, built into a SMMS panel I purchased with extra space. They're totally unstable now, so I replaced them with some PCBs from member sksynh, viewtopic.php?t=207746&highlight=

Panavises, these are Panavise Jr, well worth it. I keep an eye out for them at yard sales, etc and have picked up a lot of their vises over the years.

I have build a MIDI Clock synchronizer/programmer for my CR-78.
The CR-78 starts AND stops reliable on MIDI realtime messages start/continue/stop.
The black button let's you trigger the sound which is currently selected in the Programmer section of the CR-78. It is quantized to 16th notes so you can actually program the CR-78 sequencer in realtime and don't need that Roland WS-1 programmer.
The selected sound can also be triggered via MIDI on channel 10.
