2x Buchla 258 inspired Oscillators, 2x Barton Quantizers, 2x Buchla 281 inspired Function Generators.
The first module for the portable is complete: 6 Stage CGS Programmer/Sequencer
Here are some construction photos of the lower cabinet from last year.
Joe Paradiso’s DIY Modular Synth is on display MIT Museum. Check it out if you’re in the Boston area.
New panel design for the portable suitcase synth, L to R:
Experimental Sequencer based on the Klee prototype, Rotating Clock Divider, Uncorrelated Random Voltages (from the Easel), Sample & Hold section from the 266 Source of Uncertainty, Voltage Controlled Slope.
Here’s the finished Neural Pulser module. There’s a master clock with whole, 1/2, 1/4 and 1/8th divisions. The two banks of mini-slide switches are 2 binary rate multiplier based pattern generators. The outputs of all these divisions and multiples are patched to the 4 ‘Neurons’ (top half of panel) using stackable mini-connectors. Each Neuron has 2 Excitatory inputs and 1 Inhibitory input. A 3-way switch lets you select between the logic functions: not / or / and. So you get 4 different simultaneous patterns based on the same clock with related variations at the flick of a switch.
