2hp Clock w/divider PCB+Panel

Range-switchable clock module that varies from ~1 Hz to ~12 Hz (actually down to 1/4 Hz thanks to the integral clock divider)

It has 4 outs of the main clock, plus 1 each of 1/2 and 1/4 clock division, designed to make it easy to do simple beats (or anything else requiring clock division) without needing a separate clock divider.

The pushbutton to change the range has a blinkenlight inside it.

This is for the PCBs and panel ONLY. This line of 2HP modules uses a few weird parts (the BOMs are posted on github) so if you aren’t confident in your ability to source everything, just order a kit.

Note that this is nearly entirely surface mount. I used to be scared of it but nowadays I prefer it to through-hole because you don’t wind up with all those little metal legs that fall on the floor & then get tracked into a room with carpeting where they stick up and stab you in the foot.

The six things you need for successful surface mount soldering at the scale of my kits (0805 size components):

  • A decent soldering station
  • A lighted magnifier
  • Decent tweezers
  • A flux pen
  • .020″ solder
  • If your iron is a Weller, an ETA tip, or the equivalent for your iron

2hp dual gate to trigger conditioner PCB+Panel

A lot of my percussion modules are expecting well-formed triggers, but clocks and other things typically put out gates. This is a dual gate-to-trigger conditioner — it will narrow just about any gate down to proper trigger width, but its output is also fully adjustable from 0ms up to the full width of the original gate. So you can use it if, for example, you’re using a clock divider that puts out double-length gates that you want to shape back down to the same width as the rest of the gates you’re using. Or anything else along those lines.

The trigger/gate width is fully CV controllable across the same range that the knob gives you.

The input of the top half is normalled to the input of the bottom half, in case you want 2 different lengths from the same gate input.

2hp stereo mixer & headphone amp PCB+Panel

A simple stereo mixer — it has 1 plain-mono input, a second mono input that becomes a hard-panned left-channel when the third input, a dedicated right channel, is patched into. No pan pots, sorry, it’s 2HP. I actually designed it to go with a combination 4-way low-pass gate and stereo panning mixer that I haven’t gotten around to uploading here yet.

It has a reasonably decent headphone amplifier IC as its output stage, set to provide enough gain to drive my Sennheisers.

ec500 3U VGA adapter PCB & Panel

Updated VGA adapter designed for mounting in a 3U (e.g. Eurorack) enclosure. Also features buffered individual outputs for RGB coming in from your VGA input, for patching/processing in the ec500.

ec500 error.core 3U panel (black)

Here they are, the long-awaited 3U panels for the ec500 system. Mount your system in any enclosure that has 3U rails/spacing.

*note! These are front panels only! The system itself will fit into a 3U (i.e. Eurorack) case, but it’s still powered by a plain old 12V DC adapter.
