UGS-muse preamp GB

schematics are public ... made some pcbs for me. Everything else is only diy. Dont want to share gerbers files, etc... If anyone is interested, I have permission from Papa to make a copy for myself UGS V6.
Made some modification, position of components. First is Muse attenuation, second is UGS module and last is buffer. SOUNDS GREAT. THX people...

great work! STUNNING!
:)
 
Anyone has a p/n for JP5?
Are all caps 10nF and all resistors 10k?
For JP5 you may use Samtec SSW-105-01-S-T +TSW-105-07-G-T

Important: while looking back at Gionag's PCB (and yours), the debounce circuit as implemented seems weird (and to me eyes incorrect).
In case, I have redraw the way I would have implemented it myself.

i don´t see the +3.3V connected to the adapter PCB...
you have drawn pin9 (from P10 connector) as +3.3V but in schematic it is pin13 (see attached)

i am a bit confused...

Stones, you are right for the GND pin location.
Gionag, you have the others pins PC6, PC7 and PC8 correctly marked on the spare I/F.

PC6 => SPARE5 (pin6)
PC7 => SPARE1 (pin2)
PC8 => SPARE0 (pin1)
GND (pin 12)

Spare connector pin numbering (from bottom view)
5 ..... 1
10 .... 6
15 ....11

so the correct pins of P10 would be PIN1, PIN2, PIN6, PIN12 and PIN13...

Ok, so we have

J2 pin3 - Ch_A2 - PC7 - P10 spareIF pin2
J2 pin5 - SW2_2 - PC8 - P10 spareIF pin1
J2 pin7 - Ch_B2 - PC6 - P10 spareIF pin6
GND - P10 spareIF pin12
+3.3V - P10 spareIF pin13

Here the dual encoder adapter board.

Use for
Mechanical encoder: C2,C3=10nF, R3,R4,R5,R6=10k
Optical encoder: R5,R6=0R, C2,C3,R3,R4=void

Hi,
are you sure about this ? :
First is Muse attenuation, second is UGS module and last is buffer. ? From what I can see from your video, you have: First Muse attenuation, second buffer, then the UGS module ?
Or, maybe you have done some modification, that I don't see ?

Yes, done some modification on pcbs.
This is not exactly copy-paste...there is coupling caps on board for V6 and this modification.

Sounds OK to me now.
I just noticed there is no thermal relief on the GND pin of P10.
Also check if there is enough clearance between the dual encoder adapter board and the Debug I/F (P1) - probably no issue if you placed a right angle header on P10.

M1 socket is my gain stage...V6. Behind it is buffer...I can remove buffer and output is only gain stage.
Second option is, remove V6, remove buffer and and in place of the buffer I can put UGS V3.
Signal-flow is ok 🙂🤗
Got inspired by PASS XP-32 characteristics?
Me too. Here is my own implementation of a low output impedance UGS stage in an all_in_one module (shown here on my module test-bench).
In my case, I started from V4 but ended-up in a slight modified architecture to set the gain (using LTspice was quite helpful).
Besides the whammy style buffer, I also added a dc servo (output offset << 2mV)
All hand-soldered and getting old so be indulgent with my solders - one day I need to invest in a small reflow oven.

looks very good...is it good, sound?

As I know in Pass XP-32 is ugs V7 with toshiba mosfets, point 8 in little :)
about this we can talk XP-12, XP-22...
we compared this version of mine wih pass X2.5. That "school" but v6 is better. :)
