Vectorboard & Faceplate Archive
Below are some circuits I've designed (often with copious help from the generous members of synth-diy). Some of these have very detailed descriptions, schematics, vectorboard, and faceplate layouts. Others are not quite "fully realized", and I've put up enough to use as a starting point for building or more investigation.

These are vectorboard layouts for most or all of the modules I've built. Most have no descriptions or schems to go with them, and most are from either Barry Klein's book "Electronic Music Circuits", or Bernie Hutchin's "Electronotes - Preferred Circuit Collection". I have included gif files of the board and faceplate layouts I used, as well as zipped-up copies of the original Visio and Corel (v3) files that you can edit and print with much better results.

About the faceplates - I modeled my dial markings on the Serge modules. They were a little tricky to make, but once I had them, I saved them as .gif files and made them into objects with invisible borders around them for easy placement. Both the dials and the jacks have invisible boarders around them. The invisible rings around the jack mark the space where the actual jack will cover the faceplate and I use it as a guide to determine how close to the holes I could put the text (for banana jacks - if you use 1/4" some text may get covered). For most of these faceplates, I used a 1/10" spacing because I used pots mounted on the 1/10" spaced vectorboards. For all the faceplate work I used Corel in "Wireframe Mode" with the "Snap to grid" turned on.
Here's some info people have requested regarding Gene Stopp's ASM-1 project. A full site dedicated to the project is here. This is just stuff relating to the faceplates I had made for it. ** I have sold out of the 50 faceplates that I had made, and have no plans to do another run anytime soon **. The faceplates were done by Metalphoto of Cincinnati.
