I should mention that I daisy-chained all of the grounds between the sockets and the pots. The stripboard layout makes it look like there are separate grounds between CV-CV IN-RESONANCE and the OUTPUT jack. Would having them all on the same ground make a difference?
The LEDs are in the feedback loop, so they only light up when the resonance setting is high enough that the feedback is clipping. They’re hooked up to the same signal, just in two different directions, so will light up at the same time.
That is hard to say, because you could have made any mistake. Did you add the 10K resistor from pin1 to pin 2? And I’d suggest you meticulously compare the your soldering to the bread board and to the schematic.
They’re fed the same AC signal, so they are both lighting up at the same time, unless you’re some weird robot that can see several hundred or thousand pulses per second as individual pulses (in which case you probably have bigger problems with modern electronics then these LEDs…)
Hey Dud, that’s actually my post! I put that there when I noticed that someone else had a similar issue, but didn’t seem to post a solution, so I started a new thread.
It’s possible that it’s a faulty component…I can’t imagine a cold solder or a faulty weld would allow it to work at all…that’s what is throwing me. The fact that’s it’s working like it should, but at a really low volume.
I’m posting pics of my strip board in case anyone has a better eye than me!!!
maybe not a defective weld but a small burr between the lines for example, are you shure that you put the correct value for resistor and pot (maybe check an check again)
a error of resistor (multimeter), or eventualy a defective components
i don’t know …
