Don't laugh now; I've done about the same thing. At least just for testing.
But now I'm still wondering, as a lot of you finally seem to have got it
running (like I do!), whether anyone has come up with a design for a front
panel. Also: what pots did you add???
Basically my idea was:
+FM in AC
+FM in DC
+PW Mod. in
+pos. sig in
+neg. sig in
+random n. lev.
+white n. lev.
+pink n. lev.
+random n. out
+white n. out
+pink n. out
As you can see I added attenuators at the end of each module in order to
lower the number of patch-cables. It also makes the ASM-1 compatible with
other modules I've built/I own!
I use the power-supply as in the Formant Elektor!!!
Furthermore I've added a few mixers for the output, a power switch (on the
Another question: regarding from what I've listed above could anyone give me
an estimate of how big (a 19-inch) plate I would need to fit it all?? And
can someone tell me what's the best layout in order of the modules;
top-to-bottom or left-to-right VCO etc....?????
Anyway thanks and sorry for the long message!
PS: I have some free web-space at hand, maybe I could put out an ASM-1
homepage. If you'd like to see one please send material to:
