Lately I've been working on the proper control surface of the 6582 having run the mighty 6582 in a somewhat completed state with a perfboard control surface just for lulz. I followed Hawkeye's excellent tutorial on the CS construction but mixed and matched with the older methods from Wilba's construction hints where applicable just to be non-conformist fat rebel. :bug:
Now I'm at teh "waiting for the glue to cure" stage. :sleep: I wish one could just use superglue or Goop and be done with it. But oh noes, clamping and waiting seems to be the soup du jour... Guess I should detent the encoders or make up a nicer cable to my LCD meanwhile.
Meanwhile, this got me thinking about that elusive external filterbox with VCAs (ze famous EEFV, of which there are only whispers of a handful, being rare as hen's teeth). Wonder which filter to use:
Transistor ladder a la Moog, diode ladder a.k.a ARP stylee, CEM3372 in the Oberheim fashion, Wonky ladder 303 stylee, or IR3109 in the Jupiter 8 fashion. Mebbe I should just stick to LPF using SSM2044's there or CEM3379 and call it a day? Anyone got any suggestions? Gimped late/early MS-20 perchance? SVF based on a SSM2164 quad VCA like the Shruthi is doing it? Decisions, decisions... :frantics:
I smell experiments and a sudden uncotrollable urge to slap something together. It also needs pre/post filter distortion if I can get away with it :sorcerer:
