ATTENUVERT x6 | BUILD INSTRUCTIONS
This build is a beginner level build, but with a few surface mount components. However, this is a good project to get into surface mount components, and an otherwise simple build.
Do this before building this module:
- Check that you have all components.
- Gather all the tools needed (see lists below).
The tools needed for this build are:
- Soldering station or soldering iron.
- High quality solder (lead free recommended).
- Fine tipped side cutters.
- Round-nosed pliers (for bending component legs).
- Angled tweezers for surface mounting.
- PCB holder (makes life much easier).
- Knurled Nut Driver Tool (for tightening jack socket nuts).
Got everything? Let’s get on with it!
5. Jacks sockets and potentiometers
6. Powering up and testing
Connect a 10-pin eurorack power cable to the power socket and attach the module in your eurorack case. Connect a signal to one of the inputs (for instance a sawtooth wave from an LFO) and feed the corresponding output to a module (for instance the FM input on a VCO). Set the potentiometer to 12 o’clock. There should be no signal going through the attenuverter. Increase the level and there should now be a sawtooth signal going through. Decrease the level and there should be an inverted sawtooth (ramp) going through the attenuverter.
