STATTEN Build Thread

Post by Joe Malone »

Under Construction
STATTEN is a Stereo U or H attenuator for make passive mixer with volume and/or pan controls.

I will get some drawings up soon to explain this kit better but in the mean time feel free to ask any questions you have here.

Note1: Current Ver1 PCB mono jumpers for pull pot doesn't work. All other functions work fine.

Thank you Joe,

1.) Looking at the first pic,does that mean the STATTEN pcb takes ALPS RK27xxxxx series pots?
I have quite a few of them.

2.) So the "pan pcb" can be directly attached the "volume pcb",yes?

3.) Talking about pan,isn't this balance instead?

4.) When do we use u-pads,when h-pads ( having in mind the e.g. the AMPHEAD II already has 10k resistors on the inputs).

I'm sure once you have done the drawings it will get more clear to us.

Thanks in advance,

best regards,

Udo.

Yes correct. The Amp Head II can as well but the front half of the RK27 will be off the front of the PCB on the AMP Head II and have to wire those 3 pins back to the PCB. STATTEN pcb takes RK27 6 legs directly on the PCB.
2.) So the "pan pcb" can be directly attached the "volume pcb",yes?
Only by ribbon cable. You can ribbon cable pan U to volume H and ribbon all the volume outputs together or Volume U to Pan H and ribbon all the pan outputs together
3.) Talking about pan,isn't this balance instead?
Yes correct. Pan is just shorter to write on the PCB.

Yes it is simple but powerful :-)

Hello!

I'm building an Aux-send box for my studio.
8 stereo channels, 8 aux channels with aux 1 and 2 being mono sends on a concentric pot and 3/4, 5/6 and 7/8 stereo/dual pots. Planning to use 2x palpigrade for 16ch bal to unbalancing, and 1x tardigrade for balancing the outputs of 2x CAPI ACA summing boards.

I'm looking for a way to simplify the potmeter wiring. Could the statten be used for the aux 3-8 (dual pots)? Or is there a better solution?

The Statten is made to work balanced in and out so not ideal since everything internal is unbalanced if I have read this correctly.

Especially since the pot wiring for aux is just simple volume control which is simpler and better in the way it works for this application.

The Palpigrade and Tardigrade kits will do exactly what you need for the in and out.

Yes you are correct with everything inside being unbalanced. It's all simple volume pot wiring, but I figured there must be some smart pcb's for bussing all the pot outputs together. Or do you just use a stripboard, or a terminal block or something?

OK I see that makes sense. I could easily do a custom 8 aux pcb for this.

What pot types are you using for the dual concentric and dual pots and what spacing are the centres of the pots?
