Last month there was a lot of progress, you can read about it here:
6m0d6 – Production progress November 21
Since then we
– Received the panels
– And have a date for the SMD assembly. End of this week and the coming week our boards will be assembled by a company here in Berlin.
However we are still waiting for the potentiometers, so they can not do the THT assembly yet.
– We are still busy though: Working on a printed manual, finishing the firmware, taking care of packaging and distribution.
Here is an update of the 6m0d6 module production progress.
Since we showed the module at Superbooth and started taking preorders we have:
- Received all switches for production
- Received processors for production
- Received several small parts such as screws and nuts (we use very fancy nuts for the pots)
- Finalized the front panel, had a sample produced and ordered panels for the first batch
- Finalized the PCB. We implemented a few improvements to reduce noise and allow even better dynamic playing (video coming soon). We also had to change to another opamp footprint (part shortage, see below)
- Confirmed the final design by building yet another prototype (rev 5) and ordered all PCBs
- Improved the software and now have velocity control via midi
- Designed and build production tooling (like soldering jigs), created assembly instructions.
- Talked to our assembly house here in Berlin so they can start production.
Bad news: We are still waiting for the potentiometers and do not have a confirmed ETA just yet.
Good news: We will start with SMD production nevertheless, so we can perform the final soldering step as soon as the pots arrive. We are very happy that despite the current shortage of electronic parts we were able to source all components and can start assembly. Some parts were incredibly hard to get (for example processors, opamps) and cost us many hours of research, nerves and board redesigns.
We received the PCBs and all parts are now being sent to our assembly house.
After more then 2 years of work together with LPZW modules, we are very happy to finally reveal out next eurorack module on 13th of September 2021.
We will present and show the module at Superbooth. Visit us at our booth and check out the presentation on Thursday, 16th !
Here is a manual describing how to install our uniPulse midi interface in an
Elka “The Sidekick 32” drum machine.
The incredible Sunshine Jones took our Juno-66 user manual, improved the design and added more info for clarity.
The result can be found on his website. There is also a nice cheat sheet you should not miss.
Additionally he made a few short video demos of specific Juno-66 demos:
Arp and Powerarp
Chord Memory and Polychord
This is how to open our Firmware updater utility on OSX. This should work with any other unsigned app as well. This has been tested with OSX Big Sur but probably works with older OSX versions as well.
Download the app. Safari will place it in the Dowload folder. Navigate to the Download folder in Finder.
Right click on the file and select “new Terminal at Folder”
A terminal window opens. Type the following command: (you can copy and paste it here)
sudo chmod -R 755 ./
You will be promted for your password. Enter your password – it will not be visible. After entering your password press enter.
Open the folder with the little arrow on the left, right click on the “Tubbutec Firmware Updater” application and select “Open”
You will see a message that the file can not be opened. Click Cancel.
Repeat step 3! The second time you click open, the following window will appear.
Click Open and the app will start 🙂
Acid Jam Session using Eurorack for the Acid sound and Bassdrum.
A Beatstep Pro syncs a Roland TR-505 and A Korg SQ-1 using Tubbutec USB Bridge A.
A second USB Bridge A is used to connect a USB midi keyboard directly to the Novation Peak.
In depth review of Tubbutec µTune and expander by Synth DIY Guy
He used the Linnstrument in MPE mode to microtonally control his modular setup and show a lot of µTune’s features.
One of our customers, Landon Balk, used the uniPulse midi interface to add midi to his Boss DR-55.
He also completely modded his machine and constructed a custom case.
You can purchase the case directly from him: facebook site or website.
This manual shows how to install uniPulse in the Boss DR-55 based on his instructions.
Please read carefully before purchasing the uniPulse mod. If you want this to be done by a tech, get a quote first!
