LED VU meter - anyone interested?

Post by Sylvain »

Hi All,

I asked Joe about a LED VU and here is what he said he's been working on. Looks pretty good to me!

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lRInk7jwQmk

From Joe:

"Our 40 LED meter that shows RED PPM with peak hold and Green VU with peak hold. It uses 4 x 10 tricolour led blocks. Large but cheap PIC with 8 transistors and 2 x TL072 opamps for the balanced input and precision VU and PPM rectification and Attack and release that drive the PIC A/D inputs."

Any one else interested in a precision LED VU with simultaneous PPM and VU ballistics?

AARRRRGGGHHHHH

All that work getting a simple 10 segment PPM board designed and working for my BA kits, and what do you guys do????

Joe, let's get those compressor boards working before you start teasing us with things like this.

What this little thing. It is called MAC (Mirco Auto Compressor) and it is all finished.
PCB is 64.5mm x 35.5mm in sze. Roughly twice the size of a GO between PCB.

Getting 5 seconds to update the website now that is a different story.

Not sure if you mean the VU kit or the MAC kit?

The VU meter is in the middle of its final PCB design phase and is still a while off until we have final PCBs and kits.

The MAC we have kits packed and I just have to add a new web page with pricing, building and alignment info. Which I will get to just after easter as I will have some sound files to put up on the site as well by then.

Hmmm.... Looking at that connector on the PCB makes me wonder... Will there be a version that can attach to the DI connector on a Baby Animal PCB? Or, for added fun, if it can somehow be wired into the circuit (maybe in a BAD) so both the DI and the compressor can be connected. Frankly, I'd sell my FMR RNP so I could get a few kits like that...

Hi Poserp

Unfortunately the 10 pin connector on the BA/DI boards has a different pin assignment to the DINGO/MAC connector - the pin assignment is shown in the schematics.

Pity, though.
