DIY kits for E560 Deflector Shield and E580 Mini-Delay

Post by paults »

I will now accept your PayPal pre-orders for:

a) E560 Deflector Shield (combo Frequency shifter/RM/phase shifter)
b) E580 Resampling Mini-Delay (750ms max delay with Clean/BBD/Tape emulation)

Detailed info can be found at my distributor's pages such as :

http://www.analoguehaven.com/synthesistechnology/

These are 1 pcb board (not 2 stacked as the E340/E350) and the pots are pre-soldered as well.. Also 7 jacks instead of 8. There is one option jumper of value on the E580, that selects feedback from the tap position or the end of delay position. The jumper on the E560 is for factory testing (outputs the carrier wave).

Due to the fact I am packing up and moving (again) this week, these will ship ~ Nov 10th. More likely a bit sooner, will depend mainly on the documentation prep.

Price is $235 US/$260 foreign, **PLEASE** specify MOTM or Euro power cable with the kit(s) desired in the Subject line of the PayPal form. Example: Payment for 1ea E580 DIY + MOTM cable

Paypal address is: synth1@airmail.net and **please** include your ship to address.

I have 16 of each available. First pay, first ship!

Hey Paul... Price is the same for both kits? Sorry if that's a dumb question but a completed 580 is only $75 more, whereas the 560 is $150 more.

Erm, sorry if this is a stupid question, but what does the kit contain?

Or to put it another way, what else do we need to buy (faceplate, jacks/bananas, pots etc?)

Man y thanks

Which jacks are the outputs on the 560?
Are the 'audio up' & 'audio down' outputs or are they cv inputs?
Is the 'mix' jack a cv in for the 'wet/dry' or is it an output?
The information on analoguehaven is vague and I am not familiar with euro layouts.

Thanks Paul, I am trying to figure out a 1U MOTM sized panel, so not knowing which were the ins/outs was derailing me.

E580 5U build

Post by davebr »

I just finished building a 5U version of the E580 Sampling Mini-Delay. I incorporated additional attenuators for audio and the four CV inputs. I have photographs and front panel information on my E580 Module page.

BTW: I still have some of these, WITH the pots and switch pre-soldered. And these CAN be removed if you are *careful*. PM if interested. The price is $250 now because of the pots added. Both kits same price.

If any builders out there want to grab a couple of each for me, I'll be cashed up to buy one of each completed modules by July. :despair:

No panel, knobs or jacks. The pots and switch are pre-soldered, but can be removed if careful.

This is NOT intended to be just a 1:1 kit of the assmebled modules. Rather, it is for "repanel" to MU., Serge, etc

Please note: the price is $235 US/$260 foreign.

E560 Conversion

Post by davebr »

I just finished building a 5U version of the E560 Deflector Shield. I incorporated additional attenuators for audio and the four CV inputs. I reused my E580 panel design and have photos and front panel information on my E560 Module page. This is a very nice module.

Thanks.

I wasn't aiming for a military aesthetic specifically.

I think this style is utilitarian (for one offs),
and kind of punk because of all the imperfections.
I color code and label in hopes that they are easy to read
and understand the I/O and basic flow.
