Otto's DIY Cookbook - Simple VCO (8HP)

This kit includes all the parts needed to build a voltage controlled oscillator module, based on the written document named Otto's DIY Cookbook. The document is available for download in .pdf at the "download" section or from our GitHub.

The parts supplied with this kit are through-hole.

This is not a straight forward pick and place type of build. In the Otto's DIY ecosystem, you don't have the comfort of manufactured printed circuit boards. This is "hardcore" DIY ;).

This kit features the Protoboard-480 panels, which is suitable for narrow, high density build. If you prefer more space for mods and component layout, check out the 16 HP variant.

Parts included:

  • 3pcs - Protoboard-480
  • 1pcs - PowerBrick + Hardware
  • 1pck - BOM
  • Documents (List of Parts, Schematic)
Bill of Materials:

TS SocketPJ398SM (Thonkiconn)6
TACT SwitchTACTM-619P-F4
Operation AmplifierLM224N6

All of these parts are common in electronics, for replacement try your local shop.

Specifications of the Protoboard-480:

  • 8 HP eurorack compatible
  • 12x40 prototyping-area
  • Protoboard-style layout
  • Double sided plated through-hole connections
