Sound Lab Minisynth is coming...
The SoundLab features an implemented power supply and a midiinterface (EFM 3505 MidiPort). No additional circuitry as S/H, DrumTrigger, changeable timing capacitors or such. Just Ray Wilsons SoundLab Minisynth for Music From Outer Space!

The whole thing is housed in a 1150 Pelicase, waterproof and certified for military use (US Navy and NATO approoval) as for any situation where you need a bit more protection (i.e. dark clubs with flying beercups in the air).

I will add some sounds and pictures of its guts as soon as i finished it.
Below you can download the Schaeffer Frontpanel Design file.

Okay, all wiring done, and yes, it makes sounds. There are some issues with the AR, the noise and VCO2 tune. I am not very good in troubleshooting but it has to be done and it will be done.

AR fixed! I found a reversed diode!
Thanks to "State Machine" Bill, Uncle Krunkus and Howard Moscovitz from the electro music SL forum for their technical and psychological support.
The EFM MidiPort is populated and will be tested these days.

Still some problems with the MIDI interface and a faulty pot in the mixer section, but the SL itself works.
here is a 5-track OMD like live performance (no sequencer used, just five tracks with delay and reverb):
how does it sound?
