Time flies, it's been 134 days since my last post but I've been far from SDIY-less. Since my last post I've finished the RockIt with the official enclosure, built one MeeBlip SE, one Shruthi-1 4PM and almost whole PT2399 based delay called the EchoBase.
The canadian MeeBlip SE was an pleasent build with no real problems and resulted in nice AVR based virtual analogue much like a souped up and refined AVRSyn that I built six years ago.
The Shruthi 4PM, or 4 Pole Mission, is a Shruthi-1 with a Oberheimesque four pole multi mode (HP, BP and LP) filter that has a nice full and behaved sound to it. The build was easy and the little synth worked at first power up.
On the workbench right now is EchoBase, a monophonic delay based on the popular PT2399 from Princeton Technology Corporation (PTC). I'm in the process of adding some features to it, like a King Tubby like run away feedback, synth level input and contemplating what enclosure to use and how it should look. At the moment I lean to a Roland Space Echo look in one of these enclosures.
Next in line is Oakley Sound Filtrex II, new PCB where available in June and I've my set laying in drawer here. And Mutable Instruments have a six voice polyphonic Shruthi like synth called the Ambika, a Shurthi-1 MS-20 filter with PT2399 delay board and some other really marvelous thing comming in the next few months.
The SAS PSU I've written about earlier is put on hold due to the fact that I've decided to go EuroRack with my modular plans. I will finish it but I really don't know how much use I will have of it's bipolar +/-15V output.
As allways the summer is a bit SDIY slow for me, with a garden, RC flying and kiteing take much of my time, but I'm sure that this autumn will be as SDIY busy as the last if not more.
Until next time, thank you for reading!
