I got to meet Pinky :-)
This is "Synth Porn"
And even more famous than Pinky are Randy & Bill
Randy is on the left. Bill who is only 4 months old is on the right.
Back to the synths:This is all Eurorack format, consisting of :
2 tri-core VCOs
VC spring reverb
2x Buchla inspired 281 EGs
Sauce of Unce (SOU). Based on the Buchla 265
A new NLC Serge format Panel.
Vibes (a collection of fixed filters)
A adder circuit. It's a lovely illustration of how the Op amp's
negative feedback can be used to do computations.
This circuit adds the 3 inputs.
Vout = -R4[V1/R1+V2/R2+V3/R3]
This op-amp circuit performs the mathematical operation of Integration.
The output voltage is proportional to the integral of the input voltage. (ie: the size of the output is controlled by the length of time a voltage is present at its input). This is determined by the negative feedback capacitor which charges/discharges.
I'm not sure of the age of this computer. Maybe 1950s / 1960's ????
It's beautiful though.

Death is indiscriminate. We will all have to face it one day.
