ok, it looks like they are: "Cutoff", "Reso", "Filter LFO":



1. So can I use "Alps RK12L12C0A0E" as a replacement? - they have 15A taper -> they are logarithmic - Are you sure? I ask, because the 3 others are linear.

2. For the boost poti: I don't find Bourns PTV09A-1025F-B102  --> only PTV09A-4225F-B102 (can I take these as replacement therefor?)
they are linear, right?

PS: With that middle number 1025F, I can only find these "logarithmic" ones: "PTV09A-1025F-A203" <--- but these are not the right ones, right?

Please, I need more details about these both potentiometer types...

oh - no 3 of them are different.  You'll see they are bigger.  Here's the part:  Alps RK12L12C0A0E

The bass boost pot is 1k:  Bourns PTV09A-1025F-B102
Rest are 10 k.

miniAtmegatron / Build problems. Fried board?
« Last post by CatizenSnaps on July 03, 2018, 12:53:43 AM »
Hello folks,

I recently sat down and put together a mini-Atmegatron kit and, upon completion, have found that it's completely functionless, won't power up at all. During the build, I had to desolder and refit one capacitor, and I fear I may have overheated and fried the board in the process - the metal circuit bit on the PCB peeled off slightly and I had a tough time getting the solder to stick again. I also had a little difficulty soldering the LEDs and I think I've bridged the three pins on one of them - I have a yet to correct this as I'm a little wary of desoldering following the prior problem. Is there anything I can do to try to fix it or is it likely that the board is irreparably damaged? If so, is there any way that I can purchase just a new board without the rest of the kit - the components and Arduino all seem fine. I've attached some pictures of the board for illustration. Still getting the hang of soldering and this is my first kit build, so please bear with me if this is more obvious than it seems. All feedback greatly appreciated!

I think ALPS RK09D1130C2P should fit.

The 6 potentiometer at the top are all the same, right?
What are the "values/parameter" for the volume and boost potentiometers?

ok thx.

Hi,
The spec is:  10k, linear, 6mm diameter, D shape, 25mm height. 
I think Bourns and Alps both make one. 
Possibly worth a bit of contact cleaner first?

Hi paul,

Can you tell me which potentiometer is used for the distortion (which is on the far right)?
That Potentiometer is scratching a bit with me. Maybe I like to replace it.

Is it "Logarithmic" or "Linear"? Please, can you tell me the resistance value, the shaft-height in mm, the type (pin count, identification/product/model number)?
thank you.

Greetings,
rio

hey ToyKeeper,

after I could hear the songs in peace at home :D - here are some thoughts about it:

easy does it draft 1:
  these are really nice lead sounds and melodies that you created there. The recording sounds a bit overdriven, but maybe it was your intention. Personally, I think it would sound better, if not so distorted - especially in the bass area, there is a lot lost by that. You can certainly rasp at one point or another, otherwise thats quite passable... I would cut it a bit more. The combination of the bass melody with the lead sounds is really cool ...

digitest 1: is the arpeggio sound by atmegatron? it sounds nice melodic ... although the part is quite strong. the other sounds in the background are not bad either;)

...do not misunderstand me - I really like both tunes;)

Well, as it turns out, dragging my feet was an understatement.  I still haven't gotten back to it, months later.

I've spent most of my music time lately looking for a better way to do midi sequencing, so I can capture ideas while exploring and then clean them up for a more organized render later.  And I just got a Digitakt to help with this, and to serve as a drum machine.  Hopefully it'll help me stop dragging my feet and actually get some songs done.

yeah ..for sure, that's important.

I really like the combination of Atmegatron and Microbrute, retro digital plus retro analog in a single dirty sound.

post a picture !

I really have to listen here under bad conditions at work, but what I have listen so far sounds fantastic (both songs)!
I have to listen to this at home ;)

So, um, here's that first draft I made, complete with badly improvised melodies I played with no particular plan in mind.  And sort of a club remix at the end:

So far though, all I've done is hook it up, debug a few things, and record a quick sound test.  Here's that sound test, a simple repeating pattern while I mess with the knobs on my Atmegabrute to make something like a sonic rainbow:
