An overdrive/saturation/distortion unit ala Culture Vulture
with choices of toplogy irons/opamps/diodes/tubes ?
or a special multiband compressor ?

Culture Vulture: it already exists

Yep, there will be 3 band 6db/oct crossover/summer based on our circuit.

 thats what I meant. It was Igor who told me to go buy from Radial  :D

I believe nobody builds something like this

A good Phase Correlation Meter pcb would be fantastic.
With mabe both meter driver AND a LED circuit to satisfy everyone. what do you think?
canford use to make one but they don't anymore and i think no one else in the wolrd is actualy making one (apart mabe from the big console manufacturer)
seriously it would be great and i'm sure a lot of people would be interrested in this PCB, eh?
;-)

+1.

Some time ago, I did IN-13 based level meter with phase meter. 4xIN-13's, peak/avg, cool look and 40db of usefull range.
Besides IN13's are not very precision devices and you have to buy 10 to leave 6 with acceptable parameters,
and to get precision meter, the +150V power supply should be very stable, this worked out.
I replaced 2 of 4 IN13's in a meter which was working every day at least 6 hours from 2007 just a few weeks ago. Seems not bad.
3 other meters working fine from 2007 till now flawless. The phase meter circuit is simple and very useful.

And what about a nice DYNAMIC EQ?

For instance Sontec (or any 5 band design), but with a sidechain on every band and a treshold and ratio pots to control how much gain (+ or -) is happening depending on how much signal crossed over the treshold.
That would be a killer for mastering and also precious for mixing nervous chicks singing lead vocals!
Yup i know... it's complicated... and would be expensive as hell...

Not as complicated actually. But it is a single-shot product. I can hint to that4301 datasheet and AES13-031 (google).
All you need is sontec red boards and some breadboarding with 4301.

Cheap CRM.



On the way in White

Shot... youre close... analog multiband compressor!  YEAH!!! stereo operation for mastering.  Adjustable crossover points (either 3 or 4 band, i think 3 is enough personally...)

3 bands crossover/summer, agree

-A phase tool would be great, something like Radial PhazeQ
-Why not just buy from Radial? If you want to diy his project, ask him for pcb/schematic .

It was just a reference cos Radial is 500 series, could be little labs or other company.

Can´t it be taken one step further? Maybe freq select/Q? That would be awesome.

I DIY cos I learn a lot through the process.
I rather support small bussines that big companies.
I rather try to fix it myself if I can instead of sending to Canada or wherever
It´s a great feeling when something you build yourself actually works.

Why build a envy looper or a bus comp? Why not buy from SPL or SSL or Alan Smart?  ;)

Dont be so hard on the Neve boys...You do have a few Neve projects yourself :-) I like the idea of small PCBs for common tasks. Wonder why nobody has made a 12 step bal pad PCB for the Grayhill 3pole 12 step rotary that Audio Maintenance have in stock...I want a Eagle course for christmas..


Good point.

What about something like a stereo /ms widener? Not just plain side boost but with more control like with crossovers, pan per frequency etc. And with phase correlation metering of course.  ;D

challenge accepted.

a 4/5 band parametric eq with either pultec like resonance controls (boost/attn) or done sort of harmonic diatortion circuit. something that can be clean but also terrible distorted, only on focused.bands.

or a tg141212 eq (i can help you with info!)

So, find a way to make mastering grade 0.1 ms analog delay ;)

Bit different thing, but almost close:

TG12412 filters with all beauty of tones of inductors and freaky 1% cap values will be offered as bands of DC Uni-Q.
If you know exactly the ferrite material used in this eq, may be helpful, the rest like dcr/q/inductances info I already have.

Well, here is one of things you asked... for educational purpose only, 2 pcb sets per person limited:

Have a look at the EMT266 Transienten Limiter. Audio is delayed by 300us using 2x 4stage allpass filters.

I would love a PCB for a plate reverb driver/spring reverb driver. Simple stuff I know but the PCB's make life easy.

Yes yes, I know Christmas has already passed...

Checked that out?
I'm going to try that circuit when i have some time, and design a board for it, but will home etch it.

Winetree: had to arrive. From here, tracking shows they are not returned. In any case, drop me a mail and check if address
you wrote when checked out is correct; if still not received - worst case, will reship.


jensenmann: many thanx! I have to check it. BBC did something like this too.

Well....

What I understood, is, actually, some people are stacked with clones. Mm... OK :)
Arrrrr, dudes, YOUR sound is your hands/knowledge/ego/state of mind, but any clone/"original" gadget will make it instead of YOU.

Well, many guys with open mind like to make great sounding gadgets which are easy to build and not requires a mortgage.
And here is a big hole - there are lot of projects at garage DIY level which costs a lot to assemble,
some projects at cool level but reqires tones of time, patience and knowledge to assemble right....
And not much adapted for easy DIY and cool performance.

I starting the White PCB Series - affordable and easy to build, but still in high quality range.

This project for example will be offered very soon and I can promise great sound/performance for very acceptable budget.

Hi Igor,
Not sure if these (clones) already exist around here, but how about a 24 (or 32) channel analog summing mixer (sexy like the Shadow Hills Equinox) or I'd also be into a 2-buss EQ (something similar to the Manley Massive Passive?).

Edit: Just read previous posts, Guess I'm not alone!  :D

If you want something no one has done before (at least that I've seen yet), here is my weird idea:
A hardware version analog parametric EQ that operates the same way Waves plugin EQ's look on screen. So it physically would be laid out like a 31band graphic EQ rack, but there are 6 moveable faders (bands). They not only move up and down (boost/cut) but side to side (to select Freq). HPF / LPF options on the 2 outside bands. Not sure how the interface would mechanically work, but it might turn some heads :o

-Jim
