"In to the unknown" guitar synth (vero build)
« on: September 13, 2017, 04:05:54 AM »
Well, this is a lot of fun-




Pretty sure everything is working as it should, doesn't seem as well behaved or refined as the demo online but that may just be the vero over a pcb. Certainly works better than it did for the time spent trouble shooting before realising i was missing a cut on the board (sigh).
Like it so much i think i'll buy a pcb and give it a go with that. This one is perfect for my tupperware noise setup though.

I wonder if the lack of shielding leads to more glitchiness.

Neat looking vero though.  Is that silk screened on top?

I doubt the lack of shielding helps matters, so it may well improve when boxed.
The vero just comes with the white print on it, it's the biggest stuff i could find on ebay (something like 35x96 holes! Still not big enough for the sagan delay layout on tagboardeffects though so i need to find bigger...)

I doubt that the Tupperware company ever imagined this.   ;D

No drill needed, just stab the enclosure with the soldering iron :)

Very cool, but I can't imagine those containers cost much less than a regular enclosure.

What does the extra switch do?

If they were genuine Tupperware they'd actually cost a lot more than regular enclosures, you're right. These crappy ones are two for pound so much more economically viable!
The extra switch is the on-off switch. Even a "soft touch" stomp switch seemed unwise :)
