Last question of the day.

https://canada.newark.com/ept/105-40064/connector-plug-din-41612-5-08mm/dp/33P9037

Is this the correct 32 DIN Motherboard connector to order? There are 2 variations in sizes we want to be certain.

The type you have posted is male. The connectors on the motherboard are female. The recommended part for the connectors on the motherboard is:

Hi Ian,

I found your Custom Tube Console a great read. Then I found your blog for the Mach 3 and got excited.

How is that project going? Are you building a full prototype for production or will the PCB become available? I'm interested in building a 10 channel version. I also wondered if the files for the Console Frame Cheeks will become available?

Well done!

Stuart.

The Mark 3 is still a work in progress. The original thread about it can be found here:

https://groupdiy.com/index.php?topic=55613.msg709792#msg709792

I just realised the first post was in March 2014 so it has been going for six years. The reason it is taking so long is because it is quite a challenge squeezing tubes into a 35mm wide module plus the fact it keeps being interrupted while I build mixers and other stuff for people. In the process I have developed a new mechanical sytem and designed or commissioned several transformers not to mention quite a few PCBs.

At the moment the plan is to build the "8 Tracker" which has a channel strip with mic, line and tape inputs as well as direct outs, four groups and four auxes. The standard cheek is 12 modules wide so 8 will be channel strips and the remaining four will be the master section. I intend to build this mixer complete and the sell it.

I will also make the PCBs available as with all my projects. The cheeks were designed by SRS here in the UK. They will be able to supply you with a set along with all the necessary extrusions, card guides and fixing hardware.

Cheers

Ian

Likewise! I also recently read and enjoyed your Mark III blog - very interesting to see the process laid out so coherently. Also, huge kudos to you for making the results of your tube-based design talents available and so accessible. Your tube circuits are a boon to this community. The prevailing audio paradigm of DAWs, pcm interfaces and plugins has increasingly grown stale for me, and I have recently started attempting some direct to 2track dsd recording with an mp66 (sound skulptor) diy tube pre that I built several years ago. I can see that I will long to expand that to an 8 channel setup in the next year or two, if finances permit, and I would certainly think that your ‘8 tracker’ will be an ideal console for executing the sort of high quality acoustic music recording and mixing, for which the unparalleled sonic quality of tube circuits is so well suited.

So bring it on!
