I found some time this weekend to start assembly of my Chipstomp’s.
My PCBs arrived from DirtyPCB.com today and they look pretty good! I’m hoping to find a bit of time this weekend to assemble one. Lets hope that I got my footprints right…
I’ve been using Nokia 5110 LCD screens for a while now they’re 84x48px have a built-in back-light and are really easy to use and quite cheap. Recently though whilst working on my drum machine I found myself wishing for a few more pixels. I want to show a “pattern view” of 16 tracks with 16 steps plus some additional information and 84×48 was getting too tight.
This is based on experience and information gleaned from reading just about every other guide I could find. I’ve included loads of photos as in this case I think they’re definitely worth a 1000 words.
