In case you were wondering, I’m still around. So here’s a quick update on what’s going on.

First of all, if you haven’t yet heard, I’ve gotten myself involved in iOS development. Specifically, I’m working on an iPad app that can handle drawing vero layouts, just because that’s a tool I’ve been wanting for myself. It’s lots of fun and very time consuming, and it’s what I spend probably 90% of my free time doing these days. With a bit of luck I’m hoping to have the first version done before the end of the year.

Second, I’ve been tinkering with the tap-tempo stuff for a while now. And as far as the chips themselves go I’m really happy. Where I’m less than happy is with the implementation. Having built the clock box, a tremolo and a phaser now, I’m seeing/hearing clock noise on the audio path and it’s not going anywhere 🙁 Time to finally read up on analog/digital grounding, noise handling, layout considerations etc. Any suggestions on good books or places to start reading?

Finally, I haven’t given up on drawing layouts. And when/if I get the aforementioned software up and running I plan on a major overhaul of all the content here, as well as a lot of new layouts.

Stay in touch, and happy building!

  1. Hi Sirichai,
    I’d love to see some pictures of your builds. But please do realize that outside of the comments this site isn’t focused on user-submitted material. But if you look at the DIY links on the right-hand side there are a few forums that will fit the bill.

  2. Nice blog, Freppo 🙂 Looks like you have a really cool studio going.
    Thanks for the tip on splashtop. However, if you’ve followed what I do for a while you might have noticed that I like to reinvent the wheel, if only because it’s fun and educational, so I’m going ahead with my plans 😉

  3. Hi Vince,
    I would love to help you out regardless of any donation, but I have a limited amount of time since this is strictly a hobby, and I would like to keep obligations and responsibility out of it as much as possible. I can encourage you to post in the ever-growing request section and hope I get around to looking at it eventually (or find it super interesting and get at it right away, who knows), or if you want to you can contact me privately at at this domain.
    Sorry to let you down.

  4. Great hearing about the iOS development! I have been doing most of my layouts (check out my blog: on my ipad using the splashtop app to connect to my computer. It works fine, and that way I can do layouts in bed. 😛 But I would love to be able to do layout on my ipad while i’m away from home aswell. 🙂 Very excited! Cheers / Freppo
