PCB for the 6 voice Raspberry Pi Pico DCO arrived. I hope it works as intended and also some programming is still needed. I think I’m going for multiple ADSRs and VCAs next.

Ever elusive CD4011AE

Josh,

Cool! It would be elucidating to compare the difference between CD4011AE and CD4011UBE (which is sourceable.)

To my understanding it will have a better Decay!
I plan to try both :slight_smile:

The decay comment on the project page is about A vs B, but there are at least three variants out there; pre-JEDEC standardization A (unbuffered), and somewhat more modern B (buffered) and UB (unbuffered). The latter two are still made, and A and UB seem suspiciously similar:

(the trailing E just means PDIP packaging)

Sam mentioned he’s ordered some UBs to test with.

EDIT: Initial UBE test results.

Presumably

(but CD4011UBE would be considerably cheaper and per Sam will work with resistor changes)

dude… how did i miss the shirt. ugh.
i just ordered the twin t drum - and payed out the ass for the shipping… definitely cant do that again with the shirt.

@lookmumnocomputer - is there any way to reserve a 2XL shirt until I order again?
They only offer tracked shipping now and its 32 USD… :’(
Can’t spend 60 bucks on just a shirt… and I already own everything else LOL

  • I ask this because fat guy sizes always sell out first :stuck_out_tongue:

$32 shipping is definitely a show stopper kind of thing. For comparison I just checked, for a Eurorack full kit from Thonk:

  • FedEx International Priority Pak (3-7 days): £11.01
  • Royal Mail / USPS Tracked 1-4 weeks): £9.62
