This is my first post here and I’d like to show you something i was working on for the last weeks.
I love MI stuff and there’s one module I’m in deep love with, Tides and I’d like to have more, but room in the case is a problem everyone knows.
I also want to try to design more complicated pcbs than the few pedals and basic analog stuff I have done for now so I decided to try to do an 8hp Tides.
To make some room on the board and keep it DIY friendly I get rid of the FTDI connector and switches. I know some people won’t like that but this is a choice I had to do. I also changed the switches replaced the mcp6004 and TL072 for TSSOP packages.
The controls on the panel are totally symmetrical so it was easy to do a double side panel. One side for Tides the other one for Sheep. C’est un peu comme un malabar bi-goût ^^
For the name, I read somewhere Olivier is not kind of the use of the original names of the modules for our modified versions and personally I don’t really like the “micro” appellation. So I guess “Swirls” and “Lamb” illustrate correctly what this module is about.
There’s a few things to fix on the pcb (silkscreen mistakes, size of the side legs holes for the pots) and on the panel, but for now it’s working just fine.
Here is the pcb files but please wait before building it, I have to do the corrections. The panel will come soon too.
I would really like to give a big thank you to Olivier, for sharing his wonderful designs with us and allow us to play with it for better and for worse…
I hope you’ll enjoy it !
Ps : as a new user I can’t post more than one pics, so pics of “Lamb” and the board in the next posts.
