MidiALF!


#461

@sammy123: yes, you’ll need Y cable if you want to use Gates 3 and 4: gate outputs are combined into stereo connectors 1/3 and 2/4.


#462

Cool. Thanks. I am getting pretty excited for this.


#463

Revised Cases will be available as soon as i have a PCB to make it fit 100%. If interest is there ill can also do Eurorack Style Panels.


#464

About the combined stereo jacks for the gates: are the circuits protected against shorting? Because: when you put a mono plug into the gate1/3 jack you’re shorting gate 3 out to gnd. Will it survive this?


#465

@Mesmerised: yes, there are output protection resistors that limit current if the output is shorted to ground.


#466

@fcd72 I would enjoy the Eurorack style panel if you did decide to go that way.

MidiAlf with CV board finally ready. Took 6hrs to build (and almost 4 weeks for the pcbs to pass the customs). Running really nice! CV board working great too.
Love the progression modes. (this is deeeep!)

But: it’s naked… Frank?! :slight_smile:


#468

Yups. CV Board dropped in Saturday (nearly 4 weeks) , MidiRex + MidiBud dropped in today (1 Week).
Will build and make cases asap - but I’m pretty busy till mid next week (Ambiente Fair in Frankfurt), so don’t expect Miracles till then :wink:

I have a euro panel coming this week


#470

Hey Mesmerized that looks wonderful!

Is that a normal LCD or a VFD?


#471

Got to be an LCD. The VFDs have a little stub on the end, like the back of a CRT tube.


#472

@Varthdader: that’s the Optrex/Kyocera LCD. I could be a bit brighter though, the pics are misleading. (I used 68 Ohms for the LCD resistor, as recommended)


#473

Very nice glow to it!


#474

@altitide You don’t happen to have several euro panels coming your way? :wink:


#475

Ahh excellent news. I’m waiting for a few parts to come in to finish my MIDIAlf with but I feel a case is also in my future.


#476

@ masarin, just the acrylic prototype right now. I’ll send the file to Peter if it works out and he can do whatever he wants with it. There is a fair amount of modifications that need to be made to the board to work off of +/- 12 since its really laid out for MOTM, not euro. The PCBs do fit just fine for 3u though.


#477

and here it is, need to fix window cutout but other than that, its done


#478

Good job! I’d let that thing do me if it walked up to me and asked.


#479

Nice one… now do this in 3Ply……


#480

This was just a cheap way to test the layout, my ultimate plan is to get them CNCd at FPE. Despite my love affair with the textured black acrylic, its a PITA to find hardware that works well for something ~3mm thick.

on a unrelated thought for Peter: What would it take to add an analog clock in?
