Parasit Studio - Arcadiator 2.0

A new release by Fredrik (Freppo) from Parasit Studio.
You can find all infos and pcb on his website.
There is also a layout for his new Sentient Machine on our Forum/Contributions section.

Here are two videos for v. 2.0 and v.1 to give you an idea until a new video will be recorded:





You could add his Modboard daughter-board for extra modulation:

  1. Nice one Alex, great job. Just need to get a 4070 to build this.

  3. Does it matter if any of the IC's are buffered or un-buffered (BE vs. UBE)? I know sometimes it matters, but maybe not in this case? Thanks for the layout!

    1. Use 4070BE, 4024BE and 4069UBE (4069 is only avaliable as unbuffered)

  4. Fredrik should be able to answer your question.
    He used 4070BE, 4024BE and 4069UBE.
    You can buy all those from Tayda.

  5. Sorry for for additional question, but for the DPDT switch, i just want the ON/ON, correct?

  6. Any suggestions for a good source of vactrols?

    1. Banzai in berlin, germany has wide selection, but the prices are through the roof since the manufacturing has seized. Due to that, i'd recommend rolling your own. Red LED with Excelitas LDR cell should do it.

      Now we'll only need a reliable source for 50M, 5M and 1M LDRs... :)

    2. I've never used LDRs so I'm a bit ignorant on them... would these from Tayda be sufficient (gut says "no", but i gotta ask anyway)? http://www.taydaelectronics.com/resistors/photoresistors/photo-conductive-cell-resistor-ldr-650nm-radial-ke-10720.html

    3. It's funny, but before I knew anything I happened to order some LDRs I saw online. They have all worked in everything I have made (maybe 5 different projects). I even just finished the dreaded Mutron III - all you need to do is match them up with an LED. It works best if you take a piece of shrink wrap, bend the LDR over to a right angle and put it right alongside the LED. Then shrink the tubing.

      If you get distortion it is usually because the LED is to bright, so use a trimpot or resistor to bring down the brightness.

      I am not sure which model I got but it seems to work on everything because it has a wide range and I think most of them have ranges that overlap to great degree. Just google this "Light Dependent Resistor Photoresistor" and hit "shopping" and you will see all the different ranges offered on eBay. There is really nothing to it, you just have to put it together.

      What you posted should work, but that is expensive. You can get them for $.05 - cents

    4. I tried putting the cheap tayda LDRs in my Gigahearts Doubel Ganger (Lovetone Doppelganger clone) and the depth was so weak. I swapped in the recommended LDRs from small bear and it's so lush. They don't even tell you the light/dark range on the tayda ones.

  7. Is dpdt

    2 5
    3 6?

    This looks like the most fun. Thanks Alex and Fredrik

    1. Brotherleech that is the correct layout for a DPDT

    2. Thanks gavin. I'd actually already built it as it was a past minute birthday present so I just took a punt. I didn't do the modboard but seriously, what a pedal! I'm making one for myself now.

  9. I already had V1 but given I had nothing else to do V2 was a cool little exercise. Thanks Freppo for all your cool work!
