DIY Minimoog!
« on: May 11, 2015, 09:43:56 AM »
I'm sure some of you would be interested in this project. I just bought myself a pre-order board.

Here's the link for the description of the project:
http://www.synthtopia.com/content/2015/03/31/new-diy-synth-the-crowminius-inspired-by-minimoog-cs-80/

This is the link to buy a board:

This is the main discussion board with more projects as well:

Oh man, that would scratch the solder itch for a while...  too bad I'm notorious for not finishing projects, I have about 20 years worth ahead of this  ::)

Yeah if I recall he says in parts/board it comes to around 300 total. The boards go very fast though.

Yeah. This would definitely be way more efficient to build than an MFOS synth. I'm tempted.

Killer project for sure. I counted:

* 15 trims
* 6 rotaries
* 8 big jacks
* 29 pots
* 14 DIP switches

Has to be a pita to troubleshoot, but still very tempting.
I build pedals to hide my lousy playing.

Found the BOM in the muffwiggler page

https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1luph-CsIEe5RU8KX1xj2FkDNPgh8RLKgIt0w2aR_KPU/edit#gid=0

you going for it Cody?

I know I will be in over my head but this was the direction I have been wanting to go into. I am curious what raulduke and alan think.

Haha not at this point.. this is a huge project. I was just interested in seeing the BOM... one day maybe.. one day.
