PolyLAB Update 1/23/2014

List of things competed:

  • Prototype Case built
  • LFO, S&H, Globals PCB, Saw2Tri, Midi2CV, Power Supply & Transformer all mounted
  • Globals Panel Prototype built
  • MIDIpal LCD and Encoder installed and mounted to Globals Panel
To Do:
  • Wire it up!
I built a quick-and-dirty power buss board, but I did order a PCB.  Just waiting for that and 1 10k Pot for Voice 2 Resonance.  I ended up going with the Midimplant MIDI2CV with a MIDIpal for the dispatch to achieve poly.  The nice thing about the Midimplant is 1 board has 2 independent midi2cv's.  Each can be assigned a MIDI channel and have their own V/Oct & Gate.  Wish I had read the spec more clearly before I ordered a 2nd one.  Guess one can never have too many midid2cv's.

Hopefully 1 more month and the prototype will be complete!  Then, this spring I'll try my hand at bending aluminum.

Video Series #5 added

Demo of a ShruthXT with the SVF (Midnight Edition) filter board.  The XT really helps unlock the beast within the SVF.  If you're not familiar with it, it is a dual 12db State Variable Filter, each with Low Pass, High Pass and Band Pass.  They can be set up either in parallel or series, offering an amazing amount of modulation possibilities.  Truly an amazing and underrated filter.
