Still thinking about the way to design something usefull.

Grab an access Virus A meanwhile to see if there is another way to handle easy sound-design ... and spent much time on it.

Any other ideas/suggestions ?

Just while going on thinking about this project, I just noticed the Feeltune Rhizome which could also be of any inspiration in term of design concept.

Hi,

i just bought a used plugiator ASX (finally!).

Still waiting for delivery, but in the meantime I would like to assemble parts needed to run plugiator without a CME keyboard.

And here I have a question - does anyone know the name of white power connector on plugiator PCB ?

It may be molex kk 2.5 or 2.54, but is difficult to recognize from attached photo ?

I had a look for you. I held a 2.54 rm strip next to it and it seems to be 2.54. But it's not the KK kind. Still looking what it is though.

Thank you for taking measurements.

If this is not a standard kk type, it may be difficult to identify the socket.

At the beginning I may try this kind of connector- not ideal solution, but at least it should be possible to run the synthesizer.

Just checked and that connector will fit nicely.

You should just be really carefull when pluging it as there is nothing to prvent you from reverting the connector and connect it reverse !!!

If you think it can help, I could open my Plugiator to check if I can guess waht connector model it is or take picture of it ...

Just ask.

The picture is in And as you can see its impossible to reverse it as it is symmetrical.

I was talking about the mating connector, the one you have to plug in the board.

The type of connector Maniac found doesn't have any mechanical part to prevent the reverse connexion.

Just a thought ...

Fortunately even if I plug the connector other way, nothing happens.

As Shuriken said pins are arranged symmetrically.

However, the connector that I plan to use, will not not be a reliable connection.

Therefore, if anyone knows the exact name of the connector, I will be grateful for information.

I had a good look at the catalog of molex. But i couldnt find a match. It might be an idea to e-mail the guys at Use Audio, and ask them what it is.

OK the reverse connection won't hurt ... I was thinking about the other connector for midi actually

I think i found the connector type. By the look of things it might very well be the JST type XHP. I have ordered them at conrad to see if it is really the right one.

Good news, keep us informed.

And if it is the right reference, it would be easy to find then.

By the way, what is the conrad ref ?

I got the connectors today. And as i suspected they fit like a glove.

Conrad Ref is:

art. nr. 740549 - xhp-2

art. nr. 740617 - xhp-4

the crimp connectors needed are:

art. nr. 741112

I just hacked my Bliptronic to install a Bliptronome v2 to be able to use it as OSC/MIDI device.

Just noticed that the connector from the removed board from the Bliptronic 5000 are just the same as thoose necessary for the ASX.

So now, I do not even need to source them !!! :rolleyes:

Still figuring out how I could relaunch the project.

Could also be a nice app for LPC17 prototype testing ...
