"JCS BN-1" 4-Bit Linear PCM Synthesizer - Part 2 (Finished)

video upload by blarrer20

"This video demonstrates the final version of a 4-bit Linear PCM synthesizer that I have designed and built over about two months. It makes use of mostly Soviet clones of 7400 and 74LS series TTL chips, with no microcontrollers involved. It has a 256 x 4 SRAM chip that allows the user to program whatever waveforms may be desired, with looping capability, and starting at whatever point desired. Most importantly, it is able to be controlled by an external source, for example a keyboard instrument. It also has a frequency doubler circuit. This video is part 2 of 2, showing the finished product.

Ghost in Translation 16 Inputs 16 Ouputs Teensy Eurorack

video upload by Ghost In Translation

"Using multiplexers for the inputs, the 2 ADCs of Teensy 4.0, shift registers for the outputs, I am able to sample 16 analog inputs at 44.1kHz each, and output 16 sigma-delta digital signals that can be filtered to produce analog signals up to 50Hz.

I am confident I can improve frequency and resolution of the outputs just with software, and will work on that later. For now this is enough for gates, triggers, CVs and LEDs.

This board is my platform for Eurorack modules, Motherboard 2. Everything will be available and documented on GitHub when I finalize a few more things.

Follow my work:"

MIDI out test Great Conjunction prototype into the Prismatic Spray through Hologram Microcom

video upload by Arman Bohn

"It’s been a while. I’m back. Here is yet another in the seemingly endless prototypes of the Great Conjunction. I’m testing the out from the sequencers of the GC, feeding the output of the first sequencer via MIDI into the Prismatic Spray. All of this is getting beautified by the Hologram Microcosm."

Digital Cymbal

video upload by George Benton

"I took an MKS50240 Top Octave Synthesizer IC (TOS) and copying from a Lowrey Organ circuit from the 80's made a Digital Cymbal noise Generator.
Lowrey D350. The MKS50240 is obsolete as far as I know. If anyone can source them put it in the comments. I hope to do a part 2 when finished."

Kind of like the EML Polybox.

Starting a Sidecar MIDI Controller to expand the Ibanez IMG2010 MC1 Guitar to MIDI Converter system

video upload by Unrelated Activities

"The Ibanez IMG2010 electric guitar and MC1 MIDI Converter is an old (1986) but good MIDI guitar system. Apart from translating the audio signal frequency and amplitude from each guitar string to MIDI note number and velocity, it provides MIDI program change messages (via panel buttons and/or a IFC60 footcontroller), Hold pedal, a CTL rotary potentiometer and an Arm on the IMG2010 guitar with assignable MIDI control change messages (cc00 to cc32). When controlling modern MIDI rack synthesizer modules, these control change options are a bit limiting, so I decided to start designing an Arduino 'sidecar' expansion MIDI controller to be used in parallel to the IMG2010 & MC1. It can be fun."

Sbranvlztronics Low Frequency Oscillator Sync Test - Analog LFO with Reset on Breadboard

video upload by Unrelated Activities

"Testing a LFO with a synchronization circuit. The idea is to force the LFO triangle wave output to immediately go to zero volt when receiving a positive gate or trigger at a Sync input. When the gate or trigger at the Sync input returns to zero, the triangle wave output must then always restart with an upward ramp. On this breadboard the reset circuit was implemented with a CMOS analog switch, and the sync control is just a wire to activate it."

Modular Moog Preset Box - demo of a few functions...

video upload by noddyspuncture

"So, basically having now built and interfaced everything with regards to the Moog Modular preset box - (except the preset cards and also the 901's, I'm still waiting on the FET from the USA for those...) - it occurred to me that I should maybe test out a few of the features. I could do that by replicating what a card would do... basically connecting points to ground and applying some voltages here and there so I picked the lines into the 921B oscillators which control the footages. I also picked one of the lines into the 921A controller for fine tune and then I found the two lines which control the mixer inputs I'm using. I fed a sawtooth from the first 921B osc and a triangle from the second into the mixer, The mixer control here is just on & off... or 'sounding' and 'muted'. The card will allow for in between, so voltage controlled 'mixing' will be possible. I used my little breadboard and pins to change the settings. The functions I'm not changing here are the filter cut-off, the resonance level and also none of the EG parameters. Adding those to this demo would have been too big a job and as I've already had problems with those bundles of wires shorting, it wasn't worth the risk..! And also as those are a massive part of the 'perceived effects' on a patch change this demo is quite a simple and basic one - just to confirm my wiring is 'something like' and also to give you an idea of what this thing will be doing."

How To Expand Bastl Kastle & Volca Modular Using A Breadboard

video by ChrisLody

"Disclaimer: Please note there is always the risk that external mods may damage you equipment, if you are not comfortable with this risk then do not attempt these tips. You have been warned.

This will show you how you can make solder-less and fairly easy external expansions and mods for the Bastl Kastle and the Volca Modular. This video was supposed to be a quickie believe it or not, but turned out longer than I thought it would.

It covers some basic electronics using mostly passive parts. I may make another video about using logic chips etc to spice up these machines."
