Bunch-a-Klix

Post by falafelbiels » Tue Nov 25, 2014 6:10 pm

Hey people,

I have made a Bunch-a-Klix.
You may have seen the Bunch-a-Klox, a very simple 5 clocks module.
I have added some logic gates and an external clock input for that plus 4 outputs that give you four patterns that can get kinda funky. Don't confuse it with swing, anyway you wouldn't.

the hihats in this clip are driven by a Bunch-a-Klix. It also modulates the Patternizer that triggers the kick and snare.

Anyway I built two this week and both worked on initial fire up, never had that happen on a first version!

I have a few boards left that I can sell, anyone want to give it a try?

I'm thinking EU12,10 for a board (includes VAT, hence the silly price)


===========================

courageous people are:

1x Oberkorn
1x Yan6
1x mckenic
1x sammy123
1x c1t1zen


And I'm out of boards for now...
Thanks guys!

Cool thing, but for me it's too much SMD

Tombola

Thank you very much!

ClausF

You may have heard it before, many people actually find SMD to be much quicker and less of a hassle than through hole after a bit of practice.
The transistors a bit on the fiddly side to me, but that's about it.

mckenic

Certainly

Panels are available, I'll put you down for a set

You're in Yan6, I will PM you later this week before I go out cutting panels.


And I am out of boards now.
If there is any more interest I can order a few more.

Thanks guys!

I just noticed these switches I have used are rather expensive

Klik

they're good switches no doubt, but...

Does anyone know of something similar, yet economic?

Hhmmmwell I don't know man, the ones I used are really small. The pins are 100mil apart, you know, like on perfboard. The smallbear ones look like the regular, larger kind.

I'm glad i could help a bit. Mammoth had the double pole variety, but not SPDT. Ebay has a ton though, but with shipping it adds up.

hmmm well I might consider stocking these, they are damn fine for any project.

Too bad I am not welcome at ebay anymore since my account got hacked years and years ago. Aah well, best not to hang out there too much.
