Everybody knows that blind panels are a necessary evil in our racks. So I gave this one a purpose and turned it into a DIY "DIY Module" It features two small breadboards, fitting the AE Modular's color scheme, and connections for 5V, Ground (GND) and Clock ... or whatever else I plug the connectors on the module's back into.
I'm not an electronics wizard, so my possibilities with that thing are probably very limited, but I did manage to put a standard CD40106 square wave oscillator on there
take a look at this video for a good introduction to how/why the 40106 works (watch his other videos too, they are really instructive)
so how to covert to voltage driven (cv) rather than current ( adding a pot) well, fortunately these kind of chips for synthesis stems from Stanley Lunetta, and is often referred to as Lunetta synths/modulars,
theres a great set of resources for this at electro-music (and interesting corner of the internet )
Thanks! Yeah, a couple of hours ago just tried to built one on a breadboard. a simple 40106 oscillator. Took the power from AE modular 5V and ground. But after connecting it to Delay module with other AE VCO modules it kinda takes over and looses the point to have more than one oscillator in a rack. Dunno what's wrong but perhaps I'm missing some steps in order to avoid this "overdub" issue.
