I would like to share with you how i used the Clicks&Clocks Power Supply and busboard on my DIY modular synth system.
I had somebody make a wooden cabinet, painted red with yellow CCCP letters on the back just like the russian flag used to be.
I thought that would make a nice cabinet for a Polivoks clone modular synth. I am going to base the system on The Harvest Man Polivoks VCG and VCF units.
As Power supply i chose the Clicks&Clocks since it is a cheaper alternative for the Doepfer DiY kit. I am not finished yet but early tests of the power supply show that it is pretty stable and clean. See the images and you have an idea of how i installed it all. Some little things to do still, but you get the idea.
I measured +12.00Vdc and -11.99Vdc at the power supply terminals, unloaded.
I used only one busboard yet, as i think it will be enough for this system. 14 connectors should be enough i guess. If not i can easily add another.
The CV and Gate jumpers each are now wired to a 6.5mm jack socket on the back. Through that it is then possible to stack another cabinet on top and feed the CV and Gate through, usefull for units that require CV and Gate. Just an idea, haven’t tested it yet.
Well this is my second modular i build (the first one was a Macbeth Micromac system, pics available on my facebook page) and if you have any questions or suggestions just respond to this blog. it is always appreciated.
until the next time
