DIY 1/4 inch patch cables

Good Morning friends! Im going to be starting the tedious adventure of making a metric ton of patch cables soon, and could use some advice before starting. I’m going to be getting about 500M of this cable (https://www.designacable.com/catalog/product/view/id/3931?gclid=Cj0KCQiA4feBBhC9ARIsABp_nbV3NU...

Thanks guys, much appreciated!

@Eric the Red, yes please, the Illustrator files would be great.
I’ll try to find them.. I’ve had to switch computers like 4 times in the last year. If not, I have the JPG you can trace

Re: The pain of ordering components

I always buy extra. Typically order most parts in quantities of 50-100, so when I get a new PCB, I will most likely always have the parts on hand,

For the 2 Drum sequencer panels: —2x Barton step sequencers - each module has 2x 8-step sequencers —2x Barton Fm drums —2x Barton Analog drums —4x Barto...

USPS held it for over a week at every stop. Leaving Canada it passed the Detroit distro center and took a trip to Chicago... then Ohio, then D...

Good Morning fellow wrigglers! After a plan that has been “set in stone” for almost 4 years, I need to make a change. I have found my DIY limit, and it is the super dense Nonlinear Circuits Null A2. I’ve been slowly toiling away at the SMD components on that bad brony for a few nights and my eyes ar...

Re: [Build Thread] 157 spaces of fun! (Euro conversion question)

Just some minor progress... wiring of the dual Horstronic wave slicers is done! Those little blue meanies pack a lot of control in such a tight space. I, glad I did these in 5U instead of Euro, my clumsy ass big fingers can’t navigate those tiny knobs. Last night I started wiring up 4x Barton Dual N...

Re: Win a TRIATT from Lower West Side Studio

You plug the input jack in, you pull the input jack out, you plug the input jack in, and you shake it all about

You do the Hokey Pokey and you turn yourself around

That’s what it’s all about

Next up, I’m working on a pair of Barton QTLFO. They are a pretty cool little module, it’s a “quad-trapezoid LFO”, and it kind of plays out like a little 4-step sequencer. I have 2 of them together, with 4-Barton Dual Nice Quantizer - so all 8 trapezoids can get quantized... followed by a pair of wa...

They are only VCAs, so no noises for me yet. But 40 VCAs! I think I have enough... The photos of the wiring a...
