Latest Track:MasterControl


This track was done on my mini lunetta and features the 4052 ic set up to create the beat.  A 4040 provides the 4 octaves for its A and B controllers to choose from.

Nitetime Lunetta Lullabuy

  Lil' Adam turns 2 today!  That's about how long I've been on this Lunetta journey.  I kept him busy the night before patching the machines while momma decorated for the B-Day party.

Cd4006 shift register in action

  Time to score some more of these for backup...

I like this chip!  Being able to choose how many stages has huge benefits in lunetta patches.  Draal's usual approach,  wire everything to the panel.  Ins get 47k-100k drop down resistors.  The function diagram for this chip is essential for figuring out how to patch this sucker.

Lunetta #3 Test Run The 4029 is Fully Operational!

Here's a short clip of my current build.  It has a number of different logic chips and is powered by connecting to the other lunettas in my collection.  This clip shows the 4029 playing a little tune when I connect the Jam inputs with some of the 4017's outs.  It also has an oscillator going into its cock pin.

The name of this build is Pipboy and is the latest member of my luna-family.
The ics:
4029 up/down counter
4040 Divider
4020 Divider
4006 18 stage shift register
4070 gate
4078 8 Input NOR gate
4072 Quad OR gate
4031 shift register

All these ics are simply brought out to jacks (in this instance, nuts and bolts);  nothing fancy or complicated.  Just bring anything remotely an IN or OUT out to the panel :).
