During the past month I’ve been slowly gathering information and designing the VCO’s architecture based on the specifications stated on my last post. Here’s a reminder:
CV 1V/octave FM in Gate in PWM in Output
Introduction It has been a while since I had the idea in my head of building and eurorack modular synthesizer. But since is so expensive, I’ve been thinking of building some modules by myself.
And some weeks ago I was contacted by Digitspace with the intent of making a sponsored project using parts from their website.
It was been a while since the last update. I’ve been improving the software drivers for the LED matrix IC. I was waiting until I finished that to publish the follow-up to the last blog post.
But in the meantime, I was contacted by PCBWAY’s marketing department about the project.
Last night I decided to have a go at soldering one of the new led matrix PCBs using the stencil. Although I’d already soldered some boards with solderpaste and stencil, these were always done on a proper stencil machine.
I took the solder paste out of the freezer and while it was warming up to room temperature I cleaned the stencil and the boards.
Oh boy! One more edition of Pixels Camp!
The hype was unreal. My preparation for Pixels Camp stared way earlier, in September. This year I wanted to bring something new and different. Since I’m no good with API’s and web projects, I decided to make something that I’m good at, and that is hardware!
