Studio Notes

October 11th 2016

2 weeks of module building, trouble shooting, tuning and completeting 3 new modules for system. The 4th module, a 9747 Passive Mixer/Splitter, was ordered pre-assembled, as the current run of these modules have TRS plug holes that were manufactured too small and need to be drilled out by PAiA for assembly. The 9700 midi2cv8 had a recalled IC that had to be changed out, before tuning the new 9720 Dual VCO. While waiting on the part, I assembled a 9746 Patch Bay, and began work on the patchbook, that I'll use for saving patch set-ups.

The VCO tuning was a challenge to figure out, but once it was worked out, the 9720 Dual VCO callibrated to 4 octaves pretty decently. Need to assemble a few more modules, then I can get back to sound development for the online library.
