DIY TB550A

Finished this guy up tonight (TB550A). Not the easiest of builds, as mentioned patience is key. I made a couple careless mistakes along the way, but all are resolved.

What I find surprising is that all 3 vers have there place.

Moog Voyager / Minimonsta comparison

Out of nothing more then curiosity I wanted to know the fundamental differences between the Moog Voyager & Minimonsta. The filter is obvious so I didn’t even want to have that in the equation. I wanted to look at the raw building blocks, the oscillator waveforms. These are my results.
