More sequencer planning

-"I will try to buy as few components as possible"
Who said that?!

Ok, so I had a feeling from the start that this would rather turn into a "I hope I can use some components I already have" rather than the above...

I spent a couple of days trying to fit the panel layout to a plastic sweets box. I made a layout in InkScape.

LOL the background is transparent.

Make a small CV/Gate sequencer?

This is too much, I know.
But, when you have a CV/Gate-synthesizer, don't you just feel the urge to try and make a DIY CV/Gate-sequencer for it?
So, there's a new project in the making! But, this is more than a possible future plan (like the Juno and JX-editors).

It'll be waaay simpler than the Matrix-1000 editor so it should be a lot quicker to build and program. Preliminary name: Mörckstep, in lack of better ideas...
I want to keep it simple, yet flexible, cheap and easy to use.

CS-30 Sequencer KBD mode tuned

Well, my calibration skills (or rather, my crappy multimeter) seemed adequate enough to fix the problem I had with sequencer set to KBD mode.

My first CV/Gate synthesizer, and a beast at that! Yamaha CS-30!
