Yes, beware of ics from China on ebay! -------- Original Message
---------- Just beware that there are numerous reports of
currently-manufactured "XR2206" chips that fail to perform to
datasheet specs, particularly with respect to supply voltage. The
newer ones seem to fail above 10-12 V. True original chips (which
ceased production around 2011 I think) should be fine. --------

To: synth-diy at synth-diy.org CC: Surely the XR2206 is a much more
capable and sophisticated chip. And it's available in very cheap entry
level kits like this: https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/401320404813 [1] On

take a processor with a built-in DAC and pretty much do the same
thing. Probably better in fact. Sometimes letting go of the past can
be hard. --tr On 2/25/2018 6:03 AM, blacet at blacet.com [3] wrote: I
vaguely remember, this -- a 10:1 range function generator. Probably
had some and tossed them as more or less useless for EM. But chaos
might be a possibility. Also confused them with the 565 PLL and the
556 dual timer, which is four comparators and two flip-flops in one
package. Might be useful. -------- Original Message ---------- I still
have a few NE566s that I bought at Radio Shack back in the day.
Hmmmm... how about some sort of "chaos" generator with multiple 566s
cross modulating each other? - Oren On 2/24/18 10:41 AM, Tim Ressel

I want to make a module with them. Any ideas?
