[2617] ADV-Snare pcb

Date: August 23rd, 2019 | Comments : [3] | Categories: DIY.

While looking through some boxes of old material, I came across this completed pcb for the ADV-Snare project that I designed with Thomas Henry. The article on this project was published in Nuts-and-Volts magazine over 20 years ago!

I am EXTREMELY fond of anything Thomas Henry. Not only was he present when Franklin discovered electricity (at least his name seems to imply this), he also dwells out there in them there Great Plains, and teaches (or did teach) at Mankato State University (Go Dragons!). Actually I’m thinking that if it weren’t for people like Thomas Henry, there wouldn’t be a Eurorack, nor Analog Modular resurgance, since he never put his modular stuff down, and has always been very present and on hand to help out and represent wherever his designs have surfaced. Can’t give enough respect, nor can I escape his looming shadow!

I suspect that this pcb was used to test the circuit after design was finished. All of the chips are still present, including a few rare ones.

I designed the pcb and it was actually created with a graphics program since pcb software was very expensive at that time and neither of us had access to any. The footprints for the pads and ICs were all special graphic images that I created specifically for pcb production.

I was probably using Windows 95 at that time but the pcb graphics were created with a DOS program since it could do exact pixel-perfect images on the available printers of the time.
