  1. Blender's the biggest and (probably) most popular free 3D app, but the user interface sits somewhere between the cockpit of a 747 and a space shuttle, complexity-wise. My preferred 3D app is 3D Studio Max, but that's about as far from free as it's posible to be - I'm lucky in that I got an educational licence from when I was at university and "forgot" to uninstall it when I left there. Hmmm, must get around to that one day.
  2. Looking at the size and shape of the LCD and buttons in the first pic, I'd assume he's swapped the 2x24 for a 2x40..
  3. Laser flashback occurs when you're lasercutting a reflective material (like aluminium) - some of the beam reflects back from the cutting service and burns the laser optics.
  4. Yeah, I felt a bit guilty when the only C64 I could find was complete with 30 games and 2 joysticks. Lucky, then that I still have my original C64 from when I was about 6 and there ain't nobody gonna make me cut that one up! ;D
  5. I'd aimed to make something like this on my website, but unfortunately my SID is still in the "buying bits" stage, though I'm told my guide on the optimised PSU is useful. Unfortunately, another more urgent project got in the way :'(
  6. http://www.instructables.com/id/ECPHIPUF68BDV2C/
  7. I found a good place to start was with the optimized PSU circuit - if you're worried about your soldering skills it's better to screw up on £1's worth of veroboard than on a proper PCB.
  8. TK, you're right - that filter is filthy. I need a shower. And a SwinSID.
  9. Not a PLED, just your standard Super-Twisted Nematic LCD.
  10. I've not used them (gold phoenix) myself, but the guy in my local electronics shop can't recommend them highly enough.
  11. Yeah, when I realised that I put a warning next to the diagram on the page. When I redesign the page I think I'll put a better board layout on there, and put the warning on the layout image.
  12. Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't 0x0B == 11? Making 2*0x0B-1 = 21? I'd try it with 0x0D myself...
  13. Is that mine by any chance? www.danielprice.org.uk/synth-diy?
  14. With butter, garlic and onions
  15. *bump* Moogah, any news on when you're going to start shipping these out? No pressure, just it's been a while since you said they'd arrived and I'm itching to get stuck into one ;D //EDIT: I can't spell.
  16. There's an IC puller in every single computer toolkit. ...Anyone ever needed to remove a chip from a PC? :P
  17. That's truly insane. And awesome. :o
  18. Good idea, I didn't even think about that. I'll put the warning on tonight when I've finished work.
  19. The 4-pin connection that is wired to the sockets (SIL header) will be connected to the bankstick port on the MBHP_CORE module. The sockets are both connected exactly the same way. The bankstick's ID will be set by the wiring inside the bankstick itself, either permanently or with the aid of some DIP switches.
  20. That's correct. They're wired up for external banksticks built into DSUB9 connectors.
  21. I made a build-up guide when i built the optimised PSU for my SID - it's at http://www.danielprice.org.uk/synth-diy/sid_2.htm. Looking back, by God does that page need a redesign...
  22. Not quite - I was going to make a kind of joystick/encoder assembly that would be MB-based, to control the positioning of 3D stuff more effectively than using a mouse and keyboard. It basically was going to consist of an encoder mounted on a joystick, with some other shortcut buttons around it.
  23. Funnily enough I was contemplating doing what you suggest in reverse - I do a lot of 3D design work and was thinking of making something like this based on the MB platform, with Bome's midi translator at the other end turning the notes into keypresses.
