YuSynth Dual Pulse Delay
A bare double sided PCB (no need for the wire jumper links shown on the PCB layout) for the Yusynth Dual Pulse Delay synth module. These PCBs are manufactured by Soundtronics with a percentage of the sale going to the creator of the YuSynth - Yves Usson. These are early days for the YuSynth Modular Synth at Soundtronics, our plan is to stock PCBs for all of the projects as well as components, kits and front panels. This is going to take time but will eventually be as comprehensive as our MFOS range.
No components are included with the PCB but check out our Synth Components section where you should find what you need. We do suggest visiting the YuSynth Dual Pulse Delay project page for detailed information including Yves panel layouts but a summary is shown below.
Sorry but there is small error on the PCB. C2 is shown on the silk screen the wrong way around. It should be:
This module has two separate units that can be triggered either by one single GATE signal or by two separate GATE signals.
Each unit provides one output signal :
a delayed PULSE signal (0-10V) with a delay that can be set between 1ms and 1s;
and a pulse width that can be set between 1ms and 1s
The PCB can accept a choice of three types of power connector, it can be either a Synthesizers.com 6 pins MTA connector, a MOTM 4 pins MTA96 connector or a 10-pin Eurorack connector.

The principle of this circuit is quite simple and rely on the use of a dual monostable CD4538 IC.
Here is how it operates : when a GATE signal (between 3V and 15V), the capacitor C5 acts as a differenciator and converts the gate signal into a brief positive pulse (width 10 ms). D1 protects the circuit from negative voltages. The brief pulse created on the rising edge of the GATE signal make Q1 briefly conductive and the voltage at its collector falls down to 0.2V. The collector is connected to the falling edge trigger pin of U1a. This triggers the monostable U1a and its output Q goes to a high level and stays there for a duration set by the RC cell built around (R5+P1)C6, P1 is a 1M log potentiometer and the delay can be set between 1ms and 1s. After this delay Q returns to the low level and in turn triggers the second monostable U1b whose output Q goes to the high level and stays there for a duration set by the RC cell built around (R6+P2)C7, P2 is a 1M log potentiometer and the delay can be set between 1ms and 1s. The output Q is connected to a voltage divider (R7,R8) that delivers the OUTPUT PULSE with a amplitude of 10V. The base of Q2 is connected to the Q output of U1b and drives the LD1 LED.
