Segue - NLC - VC panner/crossfader

These are my build notes for the Nonlinearcircuits Segue.

Its a very versatile unit. a VC panner, VC cross-fader, VCA and VC attenuator, process CV and audio.
Plus should be a easy build.  Though there are plenty of SMDs, they are all passive.

Andrew describes this as a "kind of hybrid between a Buchla 207 panner and a Korg PS3200 VCA".

There are just two through hole 10R resistors to instal.
Then, caps, trannies, headers.
The trim pots are all 100k.They set the gain for each channel.

I'm using Silonex NSL 32 vactrols. The white dot marks the cathode. (K on the PCB).

NLC words of wisdom: (He'll never be) an old man river.
Mmmmmmmm ????

The reference to "Ol' Man River" isn't the song from the 1927 musical of showboat.
Rather it's refering to TISM ... the Australia band.

 OK, its time for the pots & jacks.

 The LED works.... so does the VC fader. Very cool.

"The LED provides offset to one side of the current mirror so they turn on/off at different voltages." Andrew F advised me to "drill the panel, or just drill/scrape off the soldermask on the back and the LED will make the panel glow".
