So far I have received two boards from Itead Studios:
1) the multifunction VCLFO / ADSR board, and that is going well. I have a second style of DAC - an MPC4922 somewhere to try out - one that isn't £20 a go, but needs an external reference. The small daughter board idea for the DAC should serve its purpose well there.
2) is a dual VCA, 3 channel mixer, noise and sample and hold board. It's amazing what you can squeeze into 100 square centimeters. Quite pleased with it so far - only a couple of niggles on capacitor leg spacing. I must stop assuming that all caps have 2.5mm spaced legs (a mistake I haven't repeated on the VCO)
And so, before putting some clothes on, while the drill battery is charging I thought I would share the VCO design ..
First, the schematic. It's a well-known design based on Ken Smith's excellent VCO. I was going to borrow more of MFOS but this is a great starting point. It's probably not the only VCO I am going to cut a PCB for.
