DIY Eurorack for FV1

Post by murrayadam » Mon Jan 01, 2018 9:19 am

I want to eurorack my FV1 (When I get it) has anyone done this or something similar? I assume it would be as simple as mounting the board on a faceplate and connecting up some pots and the audio connections. Will it be possible to de-solder the audio connections and pots to mount new ones on a faceplate?

The FV-1 is the chip not a board, do you mean a dev board? If so you might want to see if you need any buffering, I do not know if there is any standard for euro rack signal levels. Also you risk damaging the board by pulling/replacing connectors.

Yes I mean the board. Perhaps it would be more logical to build a module to send and return signals to the unit and perhaps place it on the top of my system. This would make it easier to power from a PSU rather than my Eurorack case as I would need to step down from 12v.
