Re: Building a preset box

Cool reverb :) May I ask another question? Did Bob keep the CA3019 based expo solution of the 901A when he transferred this to the 901B oscillator or did he change this to something like the heated transistor array solution like in the Mini then? No that diode array is bypassed - there is a tempco ...

Re: Building a preset box

Ok, but are they still in production or under copyright protection? These are basically copies of Emerson's Modular service manual with notes by Bob as he worked on it over the years, I suppose he also added the drawings for the new module modifications etc... Like I said, I was given them in confi...

Re: Building a preset box

I'd love to see pictures (and schematics of course). Why don't you run a web site? If I could I would post photos of my progress but as I noted earlier, this forum doesn't allow it. I have all the schematics and drawings and notes - they also include schematics of the revised 901A&B controller ...

Re: Building a preset box

Ok. What are the voltage sources? All voltage sources are derived from within the preset box itself... in fact, each card provides different ones via the settings. Other variables, such as all the EG settings, and the resonance actually interface into each module directly. The CP3 mixer level setti...

Re: Building a preset box

How does it work? A selectable group of CVs connected to modules, especially like sequential switches etc.? No - nothing like that. There is what you could call a 'CV feed' to the node of the osc controllers for the fine tuning and also the node of the filter for fixed control voltage level - but t...

Building a preset box

Hi folks,

I'm currently building a 'preset box' based on the 1969 'Jazz In The Garden' designs for my Modular Moog's.
I'd like to share photos - pity the board doesn't allow it anymore.

:(

921B synch switch...

Hi folks, Question for anyone owning an original vintage 921B oscillator. I have the reissue System 15 and I noticed the synch switch has three positions. The service manual shows two positions WEAK & STRONG... it does not suggest a centre position. Can anyone please confirm for me that there sh...

Re: 921: squeaking noise when moving range knob?

I'd say it's normal. I'm not near my 15 at the moment but I know that the range knobs on vintage Minimoog's can exhibit that symptom. Those rotary switches have different characteristics... break before make, make before break etc... the electronics are experiencing these characteristics and respond...

Re: Final audio output ?

I use a CP3 mixer as final out on my Modular because I mix 4 different sources, one being the built-in Minimoog. But then I also wanted to use my 1120 volume pedal.. so the CP3 feeds into a VCA, controlled by the pedal... :)

Re: Triggering Moog Rogue with Roland RT30K Trigger

What you have there with the RT30K is simply some sort of Piezo trigger. What you need is a trigger convertor - I've built them many times in one form or another. I used variations on the audio to trigger circuit that appears in the Modular Moog service manual for the 961 interface. You'll need to e...
