“no, no, make it stop, please at least use cable ties…”
There are now 20 notes active on the relayboard. This is all the notes I can get working without going back and fixing some dud soldering.
What’s good about the relayboard design?
- It works, and it works reliably. It is odd playing the keyboard and having the organ go off.
- It is electrically very simple, and within even my questionable powers to assemble.
- It is unlikely to explode without warning
What’s not so good?
- It sounds like a room full of people knitting. Sound will follow.
- It gets unseasonably warm. Not too warm, but more so than I am entirely happy with for something that performs such a simple job.
- Corollary: it is probably drawing more current than I’d like.
