Vidare Axoloti-hack

Dagens datum var även datum för ett lokalmöte, eller ja. En månad innan sagda möte i alla fall, men det gjorde att vi fick ytterligare besök Väl igång så pratades det bland annat olika ljudsyntesmetoder, och FM-syntes demonstrerades lite snabbt medelst Dexed. I Axoloti testades lite mer avancerade tekniker, både…

Sample circuit progress

Today Tomas continued work on the sample select circuit described in the previous post. After a bit of fiddling on paper the concept was wired up on a breadboard and demonstrated with the help of a potentiometer and a button. When the button (gate) is pressed the potentiometer can be…

Circuit bending plans!

Circuit bending plans!

We have continued working on the plans for the Moog Circuit Bending Challenge (or whenever we get done with the thing). In particular, we’re looking at something that’ll be not only a simple push-interface to the (former) toy, but also provide some kind of CV/Gate interface, in practise giving us…
