    Clock pulse multiplier - HOW would i do this?

    The module is purely a clock modifier, it's got no audio processing/filtering or otherwise. One pulse in and several pulses out... The transistors in this brand of module are typically just the clock/signal in/out buffers to ensure that control volts and gates/clocks are a decent 0-5v level...

    Clock pulse multiplier - HOW would i do this?

    The PIC based unit is made by Doepfer in Germany, they make a whole range of euro synth modular stuff. The item in question is the A160-5 (or A-160-5) clock multiplier/Ratchet controller. There are no schematics (they never provide them), but there's nothing complex about the minimal components...

    Clock pulse multiplier - HOW would i do this?

    Hi All, I was asked by a friend if i can build him a clock multiplier circuit for his euro-modular synthesis stuff. I said "sure, it shouldn't be too hard"....and that was the beginning of my failure lol ;-) On the commercial multiplier modules, they accept an input clock anywhere from 0.1hz...

    Newbie with DMD display & needs to speed up loops

    Oh, yes, you're right...for some reason i was thinking 40X2 had double (or more) memory capacity of the 28X2. Oh well, good to know. Now i odn't have to build up a 40X2 based controller ;-) Thanks again.

    Newbie with DMD display & needs to speed up loops

    The $00/$FF problem isn't a major problem for now, just something to keep an eye on when we try frames that are almost full of $FF data. ( i know it'll bite us later). For now we can continue with simple frames/animations to keep debugging the next step of adding more animation frames etc. (i...

    Newbie with DMD display & needs to speed up loops

    Thanks for that, i was probably thinking about the X1 versus X2 parts, it's been a long time ;-)

    Newbie with DMD display & needs to speed up loops

    Yes, they're the versions i'm still using.

    Newbie with DMD display & needs to speed up loops

    I'm working on building a new setup. Instead of using 2 of: 28X2's, i'll use 2 of: 40X2's to offer more memory options.

    Are Rev-Ed & Picaxe missing out??

    I hope this isn't blasphemy, because i love the simplicity of programming in BASIC languages (i can't program in C/C+ or whatever to save myself lol). But, *COULD* the picaxe kernal become re-ported to work inside a much faster (Atmel) device to become speed-comparable to Arduino projects? I...

    Hacked $10 RC Car

    Hi Erco, 4 years later, and i'm looking to buy some of these 4pin sensors to tinker with. Better late than never ;-) I notice the most popular ones these days (2019) are only 3 pin, which use an LM393 (comparitor) instead of a 555 oscillator to drive the IR driver LED. Maybe these aren't as...

    Mouse without Borders

    Yep, this is a great (powerful) program, I stumbled across it quite some years ago, I'm certain it was waay before microsoft got their paws on it ;-)

    Help please, with Rotary Encoder (code) from 08m to 40X2...

    That's a good point, certainly worth trying to eliminate what's really going on. FYI: i have wired the IDC16 in a unique way so that the D.0 to D.7 bits are all wired along 1 row of the IDC16 connector. The opposite row of the IDC16 has 4 GND's, 2x5v's and 2x 3.3v's. This means that EVERY D.x...

    Help please, with Rotary Encoder (code) from 08m to 40X2...

    No probs, i'll keep dabbling and try to note some kind of common pattern that makes the problem arise. On a side note, i think i mentioned this earlier in this thread (or another of my threads), but my 2 encoders are mounted in a plastic enclosure along with 4 analog pots. The 4 pots are...

    Help please, with Rotary Encoder (code) from 08m to 40X2...

    Hmmmm, sadly today i discovered the full code (post #44) is also buggy, where A and B sometimes affect each other. I only noticed it when i added in the code section from above (post #45), but as i managed to rem out every line of post #45, i noticed the original main code still bugs out after...

    slow editor

    Interesting, i wonder if the problem occurs in Win10 'Home' as well as 'Pro'? or do we simply have to rollback a few updates until we find a faster version to run PE correctly. It'd be nice if we can get the Win10 users to provide their version/build number of Win10, so i can find a definite...
