A Mean VCF

Great excitement when these turned up! They are for use in the Mean Sucker VCF that is on this site. I actually have the PCB finished with the exception of the FET. I got the valves from the Tube Depot as a NOS item (not sure how many more they have). I will get the entire PCB together then take some more pictures!

Forbin Lives

This is a new Blog about Forbin my new synthesizer! The old one, ORT, has been officially superceeded and ORT MkII seemed a bit naf so i have settled on Forbin. Probably no less naf but there you go! It already has quite a lot of modules at varying levels of completion. None of them are completely finished yet, they all seem to be waiting for something or other and i still need a box and some front panels. This board that you can see is a Buchla BPF that was redrawn by Mark Verbos. It has LED controlled resistors or VARISTORS, which aren't the easiest to get hold of.
