Analog Sequencerbox




Me playing around with my analog sequencerbox. It contains: a self-built 16-step analog sequencer from 2 4017 ICs (CV out + 4x drum trigger out), Gakken SX-150 analog synth, the guts of a finger drumkit, a mini space rocker analog drum after plans from eric archer and a weird sound generator after plans from PCBs glued to plywood front panels, all is connected with banana jacks.
The vid is a bit older, the actual version also has a little mixer in it and MIDI sync.
I might post an instructable if someone is interested but it has become rather complex, so it will be some work to document it in detail. But i think there are already some existing instructables about analog sequencers, just put everything in a box...

    Seven years down the line but how are munging the two 4017's together? I've seen several schematics for this and on investigation have found comments to suggest none of them work so am curious.

    That sounds pretty great and I like the circular display. You should post an Instructable of this.

    I like to think mine is a little better than "just put everything in a box" :)

    Sry you misunderstood this - I meant that any other sequencer circuit could be used for this. There are better designs, I chose the simplest I could find. I just wanted everything I need built into this suitcase so it's easy to transport, that's the idea.
