I'm bored, what should I build?
« on: September 18, 2011, 06:16:40 PM »
What are some super simple transformer free ideas? preferably some kind of pre or compressor. I have the ability to etch / make layouts and I have most anything I would need on hand besides inductors or xfrmrs. I'm trying to keep busy while I wait for other parts!

I have a case complete with the potentiometers, switches etc for D-LA2A including a pair of T4B and the pcb. I am also be getting the transformers from Volker soon.

I think it would be easier for us to throw some ideas across if we knew what equipment you already have, both DIY and commercial.

But for comps, I would probably suggest an La2a, 1176 variant and pres, usually a Neve or API variant.

I am about to order 4 of the feeler 312 boards, I have 2 hairball 1176s finished, I am about to finish 4x 1108' pres, i am almost done with the sb4000.. I have a tc finalizer and 2x DBX mic pres.

I was wondering if there was something useful that I could build that was insane simple. I mean like a darlington pair with one knob and no transformers. I need more pres and compressors in general.

what are the cheapest builds out there? I am so broke.. haha. MORE POOR MANS VERSIONS OF EVERYTHING PLEASE!!

Woah!

Never mind the case. How about a mum swap? ;D


Comes to USD 746. Used Oanda Currency Converter.

2 x T4Bs currently sell at USD 550.00 at David Kulka. I bought them from him.

Please note that the transformers are not included. They will be coming from Volker.
