Oakley Modular Welcome to the Oakley Modular page, home of Tony Allgood's Oakley Modular System since 1999. Oakley modules can be be bought either as a ready made units from our partner business, or can be constructed by yourself using our high quality bare printed circuit boards. Full building instructions can be found on each of the project's own webpage. Our full size modules are primarily designed for the 5U module system as originally defined by the Synthtech MOTM modular. Our Compact 3U range is designed for Euro sized modulars and Fractional Rack systems. For technical support on all Oakley projects please refer to the knowledgeable and helpful Oakley Sound Forum which is hosted at Ordering details for modules or DIY PCBs and parts can be found by clicking here.

Simple Circuit Diagram | Free Simple Circuit Diagram befaco ACX Synth Art's Theremin Page CMOS Synthesizers Chip Basics For our experiments, we'll use a couple basic chips: 40106 Hex Inverting Schmitt Trigger: This chip contains 6 individual Schmitt triggers. A Schmitt trigger is a comparator circuit that incorporates positive feedback. What this means is that when a high signal (positive voltage defined as '1') is applied to the input pin, the output pin generates a low signal (ground voltage defined as '0). This simple circuit can be connected to a resistor/capacitor pair to rapidly turn on an off. 4040 Binary Counter/Divider: This simple logic chip takes an input square wave and generates oscillations at 8 outputs with a frequency related to the input frequency. 4051 Eight Channel Analog Multiplexor/Demultiplexor: The voltage status of the three address pins A, B and C determines which of the eight channels presents its voltage to the common connection pin. Note: All schematics on this site use the following notation for potentiometer tapers: A = Logarithmic, B = Linear Using Your Effects!

fun with sea moss (or, basic digital sound devices) by Sebastian Tomczak. Please email for blah-blahing Please note that the construction of a square wave oscillator using a hex inverter integrated circuit and then using it to control a digital binary counter integrated circuit is taken from the excellent reference: pp 111-139. Collins, Nicolas 2006, Handmade Electronic Music: The Art of Hardware Hacking, TF-ROUTL. Index Digital Logic All of the schematics presented here in the 'Sound Devices' section operate on the premise of digital logic - that is, a reliance on two individual states used to represent information. Binary Numbers Multiple states can be encoded as information when considering a set of 1s and 0s. 1s and 0s and Electricity Electricity is able to represent the idea of a 1 and a 0 quite easily. back to top Logic Chips There are three types of integrated circuits used in these mini-projects. The 40106 is a hex inverter. The 4040 is a binary counter / divider. Sound Devices Basic Equipment List Oscillator
