The latest purchase to avoid making actual music is the Befaco Chikipower. I have an idea I want to develop on a breadboard and a separate power supply would be a sensible idea. Now to figure out how to get the ICs that I’ll need.


Have also ordered a couple of AY-3-8910A ICs from eBay. I’ll probably do some initial prototyping with an Arduino, and then see if I can hook it into a Eurorack form factor.

@mo Do the current Arduinos have stable enough timing to run them? That used to be a problem IIRC.

@joshua I think it only needs to do 2MHz, so it should be fine for prototyping (I think an Arduino can do 8MHz). I’ll probably need an oscillator for the real deal though.

@mo Worth keeping in mind if you get bizarre results.
