Thanks to Mike muffwiggler for the account. I will drop more stuff there eventually, at the moment it is 3 songs off the Chua Diode album (me on synths, Julian on everything else) and one song that we didn't put on the album but really like. (opentape)

4HP Sloth panel proto-type

new 4HP Sloth panel & PCB. This is a proto-type, the final version will be 2mm blue panel with gold lettering.....real gold!....well.... electroless nickel immersion gold plating to be pedantic.
 The PCB has also been redesigned to suit 4HP. These will also be available for non-DIYers as ready to use modules in a few weeks

Lost threads on muffwiggler

update 23/1/2015 Mike @ muffwiggler has repaired the forum and all posts have been restored! By all accounts, it was a major effort so WELL Done!!!!

It seems all my posts & threads on muffwiggler, regarding my circuits, going back to Feb 2013 have been erased and, possibly, are not coming back.

It seems there was an attack aimed at rival manufacturers.....kind of bizarre, but thats the story, many other small scale ops like me have copped it too.

Sadly there was a hell of a lot of useful info in those threads. So if anybody is searching for info on a build of any NLC modules, the only sources now are the manuals - and there are usually lots of pics on this blog
otherwise feel free to ask me directly and I will help out.

update - Mike @ muffwiggler is working to find a way to restore the lost threads. I cannot imagine how difficult it will be, there must be several thousand of them to process.

new pcbs in stock

 Check my youtube page for demos and DATA page for BOMs and build info

Chopper. Bottom section is a normal gate controlled bi-directional router. Top section is based on a 70s delta modulator, at least in concept. The signals being switched are also the ones controlling the switching, plus you can add CV to that, good luck trying to work out what the fuck is going on once that happens.
PCB $18
Panel $25 

 CMOSC. This is from my 4U CMOS panel . 6 gate controlled oscillators, the gates select 1 of 2 frequencies set by the pots. each set of three can be controlled by sync inputs. The idea is to patch them all up together to create massive swirling drones.
PCB set $25

 DelayNoMore. Two PT2399 chips roped together in series, one with vactrol control and 4 different feedback paths....its just fucked.
PCB $18

 Hyper Wien. A hyper chaotic circuit with vactrol control. It really justs gets into its groove and bounces around at 1Hz or so, with the vactrol control unsettling it ...sometimes.
PCB $12
Panel $20

 Quad Osc / LowPass Filter. Based on Electronotes design with several mods and updates. It can be switched to perform as a very low freq QUO, quadrature VCO, LPF with Q and a pot allows non-linear resonant feedback to obtain richer and irregular harmonics.
PCB $20

 VCO (same as the ones in VCO Panel) E/N Mikulic core mated with the features of the Aries 338 PMS VCO (VC phase modulated sync, VC pan-pulse)
PCB set $25

PCB Eurorack panels

These PCB panels are only used as panels, they do not have any components soldered to them.

PCB Eurorack panels

These arrived this morning. 2mm white PCB Panels. On a few of them the NLC logos are missing a few spots of ink (most are perfect) but on the whole they look fantastic.
