Tinyboatgiant LW Format powered boats

Post by Delabelle » Wed Aug 04, 2021 7:35 am

Hi all,

It all began with this beehive Loudestwarning panel.

Ingredients are:
2x DTG
1x SSG
1x Noise
2x Unity mixers
2x VCA
1x VC Panner (Clee)
1x VCFQ

Image

It felt like a challenge by Charlie and went for it. After that the case idea was rolling and decided with Charlie that these lunchbox boats could be a good thing to do.

Three little babies were born called Petit Bleu, Citronelle and Petite Souris.
Image

I went also for the idea of a plug and play boat. Think about a mini system that you can take everywhere, even in the park, sit down, plug a power brick and have fun. So, all boats have a 1,2A dual power available. Up to 3 boats can be hooked together in the horizontal way.

In the near future I'll work on rack ears to fit a 19" rack and cheeks to mount different horizontal boats/rows in the vertical way.

Here is a nice picture received from the first batch tiny boats in twin formation.

Image

I have got a very nice and motivating response from the people in the 4U community and it kept me going, thank you for that.

At the moment I'll work on the LW Format 26" GOLD boat that will contain up to 2 psu. So also, self-powered.
Why 26", existing 17" panel + 9-inch configuration or panel.

Image

Yes, I work with a google form that you fill in but had to put it offline because it will stress me too much if i don't see the light at the end of the tunnel. So a new batch is in production, with some slight modifications. When those are ready a small batch will go to the US, some will be delivered for the people who didn't had their case after the first batch was sold out. And the rest will be available again via the Google form.

Many conceptors are making dedicated 9-inch panels like THC, STROH and LW ... More are coming soon

Lovely panels and boats - that LW mini Serge is amazing. More glamour shots from users please!

I filled out the form a few days ago for a blue boat, I got some panels made to bring a few “extras” into my 4u world..
(Delabelle did you get a form recently for a bare blue box to the us?)

I somehow bumped the lower right mounting hole inward a bit on the proto-panel… :hihi:

First two panels. The first versions will require a bit of PCB stacking, but I’m hoping to design some single PCBs that include all of the functions. They’ll still require wiring, but no stacking would be nice. The next one after this will be the FlexFilter. Triple SVF, and basically a better followup to the Zyrinqz filter. Not sure about after that, but maybe a FlexWave VCO, and possibly a completely clocks and logic panel.

Oh man...
Those two plus a "completely clocks and logic panel" would be a killer setup.

I don't even 4u but I picked up one of these tiny boats because I couldn't resist the cute.

I don’t think so because I support all designers that don’t do Serge designs. 4U isn’t all about Serge tbh and there are a lot of skilled designers out there to make something else that copy Serge designs.

Anyway, it cheers me up to see the positive reactions about the tiny boats.
Thank you all for that.

I will make another batch of Petit Blue tiny boats and a first batch of the Golden giant boat.

After that I’ll propose a handle system where you can transport the tiny boats. The handle can be screwed together and can be used to up to 3 boats in total. It can also be used as a stand for the tiny boat(s).
Then I’ll concentrate on the Alu Leighton weight cheeks for 2/3/5 row configuration.

Cool! Which PCB is recommended for the VC-Fade? Is there a Serge/CGS format PCB available?

Working and testing a new design that I’ll make available at Pusherman just like the stereo send/receive and septamixer with control module all on one pcb and already available there. Smd though

Panels look great! And 4u sorely needs SMD.

These are absolutely adorable, and fill a needed niche within 4U for smaller systems outside of Rex's world. I hadn't been thinking seriously about entering this ecosystem for a while due to typical student finance constraints and such, but the thought of throwing together a little sequencing/control panel to interface with the rest of my banana gear is quite enticing now.

Very excited to see the Stroh panels and everything else in here. I have a blue one in transit from Synthcube but it looks like I'll be needing a few more :sb:.

These are going fast, to good homes, and we're having to pry them out of the hands of our shop guys who want to keep building them up into 4U demo systems :lol:

Looking forward to seeing more.
Is the VC-Fade suited to CV, audio or both?

Is there a UK distributor/stockist for the boats yet?
How much would shipping be to the UK be and how long do you think it would take?

Me too

Both but as said, have to test it because i am working on a dozen new modules in 4U format

Is there a UK distributor/stockist for the boats yet?
No, powered boats i sell in the EU and Synthcube distributes for the Americas

How much would shipping be to the UK be and how long do you think it would take?
I ordered a new batch of boats, but have some spare gray in stock. And looking at the Google form sheet i see people are waiting for my confirmation mail. So there is a waiting list to be honest.
Here is the Google form where you can order one and where all the information regarding shipping etc is available:

Tiny boat Google form

Also I have to concentrate on the Golden 26" boat, because people are waiting for that one too.

Take care

Nearly done with the last of the PCB testing. Just waiting for the last two to arrive. Then I just need to verify that they work as expected. Then I have to put some docs together for them.

I'm planning some form of sequencer, a crossfader, and am almost done with a new version of the Pulse Logic design. These aren't pictured here, as they're a little while out. Oh, and a new slimmer version of the AD633 based QuadQuadrant board.

Here's what I've been working on for a while:
