Hey @gloom_and_glare - totally hear you and agree. I'm not being cheap, I'm just curious how well it will perform with the additional capabilities of the teensy (adjustable bit depth and frequency). Hence, some experiments. : ) But, yeah, most likely will go DAC unless this little thing impresses me.
I'm planning to approach the project in the following phases (and share everything along the way here and up in a Git Repo when appropriate):
Phase One: Requirement Gathering, High-Level Specification and Front Panel Plan [completed]
Phase Two: R&D + Prototyping on Each Pathway for I and O (in no particular order):
- PWM / DAC CV Out [in process]
- Trigger Out
- CV In
- Encoder In
Phase Three: Design Circuit Boards, ||: Print Test Run, Modify :||
Phase Four: Finalize Source Code for Modules and Publish to Git Repo
Phase Five: Finalize Panel Design and Print Test Run
Phase Six: Finalize Documentation
Finally, just to reiterate it for those who are following along, I don't have the time to make this an urgent project. I have a lot on my plate - so it will most likely take a little time to go through all of these steps. I am really enjoying the conversation with everyone and looking forward to making this together.
