hey everyone i've been wanting to post this the whole time i was developing these. let me know what you think.
::: PLUGINS FOR BENDERS :::
the PARASITES are intended to be used as both "circuit bending plugins" ( think VST's for speak & spells and casio's) as well as "lo-fi mini synth modules" that will all run off of a wide range of readily available power supplies. please read the full page for the item you are interested in before purchasing so you know what you are getting yourself into.
here is the general break down of what they are on a hardware level and how they arrive. in a static bag you will find an almost fully assembled and tested PCB with all the required parts, the pots, switched, hookup wire, and an attached 9V clip (everything will run off of a single 9v if that’s what you want to do), but the controls like switches and pots are NOT soldered into place. they come as a 90ish% complete kits because i realized that nearly every application you end up using these for will be different and if i go and solder them all with 5 inch wire you will almost always have to change them so i'm shipping them with a good amount of hookup wire and everything you will need to get going (this also makes less work for me and lower prices for you), also many but not all, of the PCBs will have an area to directly mount and solder the pots, this will help to keep things clean and simple and help with the task of mounting each device. there will not be any jacks shipped because once again you will probably just change them. the boards themselves are professionally manufactured and are as compact as i can reasonably make them. on each page you will find the actual measurements to make sure they will fit where you want them. i'd suggest making a dummy block out of cardboard or something to make sure they fit so your not pissed at me later.
