GaHahaha oh man.

I'm sorry this process is taking longer than I intended. Story of my life I suppose.

I've been doing a little monolithic opamp design on the side as a palette cleanser (only so far as to remove the "WHAT THE FUCK?!" levels of self reflection). With a nod to breaking bread with the DIY crowd I've also isolated the noise source section of the Crustacean for white noise generation needs (wholly discrete, but tame by comparison). The Stone Splitter might be the last fundamentally discrete big build for a while. I say fundamentally because it employs 4000 series CMOS switching (those come in monolithic packages and I'm sure some purists would look at a conjoined P and N channel mosfet as straying from the discrete), but aside from those paths it's a jungle of connections/etc.

I know full well that I'm going to just turn around and dive right back into the stupid end of the marsh. Like that science fiction story about deep spacers needing a mind implant to think the next destination was HOME so they'd suffer through another tour of duty. I can't remember the collection/author/name; something mid-century though.

Anyway, more soon!

I'm not familiar but that sounds like Robert A. Heinlein territory. I'll look into it.

Found it. The story is "Condition of Employment" by Clifford Simak, my copy sits in the collection "All the Traps of Earth".

Yes, yes, this too!

I plan on huffing a bunch of solder fumes today, so hopefully I'll have one less goblin pulling my hair by day's end.

Lol shit, that's what I want every piece of gear to be like!

Hope things are progressing smoothly -- I've been wanting to own something Rochambeau for a while now, partly because I remember some of your posts on the old noise forum where you were doing things that seemed crazy to me (I think one was converting old medical equipment into sound devices?)

Yeah, that's me. Huge tubed circuits are great inspiration, but I'm still striving to meet that benchmark within the transistor framework hahaha

I slow waaaaay down over the winter, but things are progressing. I appreciate the interest!
