« on: May 20, 2014, 12:12:27 AM »
I know, this is really not a pedal, but I think it's dead cool :D





Mmmm mmm mmmmmm. I think I posted about this in the synth-diy thread, but this is the finished article!

Front Panel Express. The art is engraved/cut into a black anodized panel. Very, very well done, but it better be. Why? You've heard the expression to charge like a wounded bull... think more bull you just kicked in the nads.

That looks sweet. What does it do exactly though?  ;D

That is quite cool, I'm wondering what it does? LFO? CMOS synth?

It's a copy of the Minimoog synthesizer's low pass voltage controlled filter.

And yes, it makes some sweet sounds :)

No keys yet ;_; been using a FreqCentral Waverider LFO and System X Envelope to control it.

Got a sequencer in the pipeline, but hit a snag with the faceplate.

Very nice!

Was matching the transistors a bugger?

The Moog Ladder filter is one of the nicest sounding filters IMO.

The filter in my prodigy is just lovely.

I have built a few of these and in the first 3 I matched the transistors (BC550 I think), and in the now defumct EFM filter I just stuck em in. All worked fine.

Bit of a dredge, but would anyone be interested if I did ten sets of boards for this?

New revision, uses less HP (and panel space), all boardmounted, two stacked boards (think Brazen Bull, but less impressive.)

Count me in.  I still need to buy that sequencer board off of you.
