so im new to soldering and i was wondering if any of you can hit me up with a schematic/tutorial for putting a killswitch onto a shaker box

will be much appreciated!

it's so simple that drawing schematics for it is silly..

cut the wire to the output in your box and add a switch:

the one wire goes to the center pin and the other goes to either of the other pins...

Or you know, google.

I think trying to quantify music is one of the biggest wastes of time in the world, like discussing your favourite colour or deity or pizza topping. People should realise that and get on with their life.

Niice :)

everyone with any interest in synthesis should read the Arp 2600 Owner’s Manual even if they never actually use one :D

Veroboard is great and not difficult to use. If you must have the most compact design it can be frustrating, but if you are happy to use just a little more space it makes things a lot more enjoyable. Same with PCB design I guess. Anyway, my recipe for easy veroboard layout goes like this:

1. Start with a piece of veroboard about 80mm square. It usually doesn't need to be quite as big as that, but the extra gives you some room for later kludges if necessary. Or for a simple circuit 50mm square is plenty.

2. Align all the chips in a row (line astern) with about 3 stripes in between each one. Most veroboard comes in widths of about 80mm, so this technique works best for circuits with no more than three 14/16 pin chips or five 8 pin chips.

3. Use a mini grinder or similar tool to cut all the tracks from one side to the other underneath the line of chips. Its _much_ easier to cut all the tracks in one line rather than fuss about cutting some here and some there.

4. Run resistors, caps and wire links parallel to the line of chips wherever possible.

5. Designate one stripe between each chip as a ground and use a wire link to bridge the cut you just made.

6. If you need to cross the line of chips with a wire or resistor, I recommend doing it on the copper side of the board, so all my vertical oriented components are on one side and laterals on the other. I also recommend attaching front panel wires on the copper side (surface mount fashion) rather than through the holes.

Doing it this way you can often get away with building direct from a schematic rather than having to go through a separate board design process.

Cheers,
Nicolas

some super simple Woolaston vero/strip boards for you "Freaks" from the archives
we have built several of these designs
hertz VCOs
works with Korg ms20,ms10,ms50,x911,old yamaha cs, & vintage PAIA plus modular FATMAN
good examples for basic vero/stripboard DIY method

probably somewhere near folder with all the Fairlight CMI IIx sample libraries eye made for ensoniq .efe format....
obviously anyone that owns Synclavier can afford paying for some original schematics:P
haven't gotten my hands near one.... yet
or may have been in the same room with it ages ago and didn't even have clue what it was back then

Steiner Parker Micron
The Steiner Microcon is a complete synthesizer (less keyboard) in a single module. It has its own power supply, VCO, LFO, VCF and envelope generator, thereby combining all of the most needed parts of a synthesizer in one unit.

It can be used with synthesizer accessories such as sequencers, electronic valve instruments, guitar slave-drivers, pitch followers, or with a keyboard. Multiple units can be combined with a guitar controller to form full polyphonic synthesizers at a fraction of the cost normally expected. Combined with a regular synthesizer, it ads an extra 'voice' to your present system.

Oscillator stability and tracking are the best that state of the art will allow. Numerous inputs and outputs are available on the front and top of the unit. Other signals available inside can be brought out for special applications, and connected to other equipment in a variety of useful ways.

The Minicon truly packs alot of synthesizer into a small space (which looks to be about 4-inches by 6-inches. There are 8 knobs and 6 switches. The VCO has knobs for course and fine tuning and switches allowing selection of "three waveforms". The LFO has knobs for rate and level and a switch for beat and is available for vibrato. The VCF has knobs for frequency and gain, as well as a switch for resonance. The Envelop Generator has knobs for attack and decay, as well as a switches to enable damp (a quick release decay) and sustain. The VCA is described as a "trigger controlled audio gate". Connections include positive and negative trigger out, VC filter in, calibrated and uncalibrated voltage control ins, a signal out (which "can be paralleled"), and a trigger in. According to the product literature the "beat function causes the VCO to sound like to sound like two oscillators beating together.
