Pie Tin "Prototyping" At 4:00AM
« on: March 08, 2018, 09:56:10 AM »
My day starts at 4AM, yeah I'm crazy... but my long work day is from 6:30AM to 4:00PM, so I do these sorts of things when I am not brain dead rigtht after waking up like I am after work.

Anyway, this is the first time I've used a pie tin to build something, get it working, etc. before I decide what exactly to put it in. I've also used cardboard mockups of 1590BBs and 125s while waiting for enclosures, and even just a flat piece of cardboard. The nice thing about the pie tin is it's metal, so grounding is easier.

Big Muff Pie?
No affiliations. If I glowingly mention specific merchants or products, it is because I like them without having to be paid to like them.

Synth wiz Osamu Hoshuyama came to my city as visiting scholar at a local university in 2002-2003.  With his wife and daughter back home in Tokyo, he had wads of time on his hands, so he built himself a "lunchbox" modular synth, in plastic containers from the dollar store.



If anyone can build something into a brown paper bag, I'll be impressed.  Although a fuzz in a tunafish can wouldn't be bad.  I think there's enough clearance in there for a stompswitch.

Wow, that's quite a project your synth wizard friend did there  :o

I can do a paper bag, but it would have to be reinforced with something...  ;)

Very cool, not bad shielding either.

A friend of mine used plastic soap cases.  The old school cases were quite square, sealed, and had a catch.  They were very cheap at the local Supermarket.    His first soap-case project was an electric shocker "Multi-Vibrator" to shock friends.  This is the idea but not as good:

Yeah just about anything works. My next video will be about retiring the pie tin and putting it into my repurposed DIY wah enclosure that follows the Colorsound form factor.

Might as well put it to good use.  You did a great job on those.

I completely mis-read the thread title (even having read the initial installment yesterday).

Tie pin prototyping?  This I gotta see...

Thanks. Here is what I did with it:
