CTL1 - Touch Panel - version2

Announcing a major update to the CTL1 - Touch Panel for the BugModular System.

Several great new features and updates:
  • Improved Touch-pad design for increased sensitivity
  • Extra Preset Row and Common Gate added
  • Sequencing - input a signal to step Left or Right
  • Fully updated circuitry and dense PCB construction
  • Overall visual yum!
Is this available? No - not really (..sorry..)
Initially these will only be made for the small current group of BugModular system users though I hope to be able to offer further units (for regular Frac users) at a later date.

The (dense) Insides of the 1st built (ie a little bit rough)
Version 1

Postcards are changing..

Announcement of the newly updated PostcardWeevil 2009 version.
Pretty similar to the previous version but with the better dials as used on the BoardWeevil for a greatly improved overall feel. There's also an extra IC chip to update the minijack output level - its much more consistent than before (though, of course, maintaining all the PWeevil's sonic characteristics). Small extras also include battery polarity protection and they now come in a sturdy cardboard box with updated instruction sheet. The new one is slightly larger than before, measuring roughly 8cm square, and is built on a lovely blue PCB with gold-plated touch pads.
Hitting the shop in the next few days...
