Thanks for all your hard work. I’ve been following the progress for a long time. Just saw that ordering was open today and ordered 2 boards.
Can you tell me which op-amps are used for the I/O buffers? I’d like to experiment with Akso as a video oscillator/processor (something I did a bit with Axoloti). Axoloti is ultimately too slow to be of much use for video, but I’m hopeful for Akso. It could be groundbreaking.
A potential issue is that TL07xx op-amps that are typically used for Eurorack buffers have a slew rate that’s way too slow for video. Luckily, depending on the circuit, there are possible drop-in replacements. Could be tricky, as wide bandwidth op-amps sometimes require some things that slower chips don’t (some resistance in the feedback loop for instance). I’m not sure if the schematic is published or not, but I’m curious to look at it and see if this modification is possible without having to wire in a daughterboard.
Another constant frustration I have with Axoloti is the inability to tune oscillator objects to precise frequencies, which could also be helpful for audio people. Also, the frequency ranges of objects seem to be arbitrarily limited. I’ve managed to stumble around the code enough to make small object modifications, but my skills are squarely in the analog domain. I haven’t had any success in either of those departments. Maybe there’s someone out there that can fix these things?
Thanks again, and really looking forward to exploring this new territory.
