I have a small Eurorack setup and I have really started to enjoy exploring electronics because of it. It seems like I keep buying more and more ICs, transistors, capacitors, diodes, potentiometers, etc. and I am attempting to build some things on a breadboard. I have a really cheap oscilloscope that I can at least measure my Vpp with, so I kind of know what my output looks like. I actually became brave enough a few days ago to solder a little 10 pin connector onto some perfboard and made three leads come off of it so I could power my breadboard from the eurorack power supply. It was a filter circuit that I was trying out (built with some schematic from Doepfer). Anyway, enough about all that. I just wanted to explain a bit about where I am at with my knowledge or skill level.
I have watched a million basic electronics videos on YouTube and I have read through some basic books. None of which seem to lead me exactly where I want to go. I am not looking for an exact list of materials, but more of a progression through the stages of a VCO. Like here is how to generate the square wave, now we do this to get a triangle, let’s add 1V/Oct to it, then FM. I don’t know that what I am looking for technically exists or maybe I am staring right at it and I just don’t understand it well enough.
One thing that I have come across and I wonder if anyone has an opinion about this. I found a newsletter called Electronotes written in the 70s by Bernie Hutchins. I considered spending $400 on it to get all of the material, but ultimately I have decided to wait because I am not sure I would even understand what I am looking at.
Any advice would be appreciated. Perhaps book recommendations, websites to visit, etc. Remember though, I am looking for eurorack type circuits. Thanks!!
