BARTON MUSICAL CIRCUITS. SIMPLE CV QUANTIZER. This circuit takes a continuously variable dc voltage and outputs only voltages related to each other musically, using the 1v/octave standard.


It utilizes a preprogrammed PIC which is included with purchase of a PCB. It is has a very low parts count, requires no calibration, and is small enough to be used either as a seperate synth module or as a daughter board to be attached to the input of an oscillator or output of a sequencer/s&h/other cv generator.

There is a new technology going on in the forums.

Yes, for those who love to get down and to the source, I can heartily recommend Keele's paper and especially On the Specification of Moving-Coil Drivers for Low-Frequency Horn-Loaded Loudspeakers, from W. Marshall Leach, Jr. Or, if you would like to skip to the chase, and actually build an instrument making use of this technology :) then please check out the most recent update to our Speakers Wiki .

It isn't as fully featured as others, nor as expensive. It's designed to be small, cheap and simple to use. GORF seq. Available Now!

Gorf is a simple 8 step sequencer. It isn't as clever or complex as the Sequentix P3 nor as expensive as certain other sequencers. I was bored one sunday, and wanted to build a simple sequencer I could use to test Defender and other synths I was building. ADASYNTH. Anonymous asked: Any news about the project?


Introspectiv. Subatomic. Monday 04.03.2006 6pm came home today to find the 9090 PCBs from Trevor came through my mail slot. 2 PCBs and 4 ICs. 9090 boards from trevor arrived I found some nice scans of the PCBs on c0nsumer's 9090 wiki.

Yes, there were some changes to the hardware and the project, we will post those when possible. It should work on the Uno board, I got a 2009 to test later this month just in case. One change I'm doing is add 2 extra C165 shifters and make the interface buttons use those extra pins instead. Right now the single analog input with multiple buttons doesn't work the way we want, and its not multi-press compatible, something that is nice for future updates. We also added the EEPROM, which the code already uses without any problems. Forum - Musikding. Musikding Forum. x0xb0x. Willzyx James Wilsey. substyler. Audiofanzine x0xb0x. Subatomic worklog.

This week at Mutable Instruments Yarns, Tides, Frames are officially released! Checked some production documents for Peaks.Fixed a screw problem on 130 Yarns (tiring…).Re-flashed the firmware on 215 Frames (last minute bug fix, tiring…). New steps in factory testing procedure.Re-flashed the firmware on 225 Tides (last minute bug fixes, tiring…).Approved final panel design on new module 2, and started PCB layout. Thanks Hannes! Finished building prototype of new module 1. This week at Mutable Instruments. Adventure Kid » Single cycle waveforms. I have been making and collecting one cycle waveforms for years. They have been one of my best weapons to use when making sounds. If you have a wavetable synthesizer that can load single cycle waveforms you might find them useful as well.
