New PCBs 8/4/2019

Four new circuits available today, including a brand-new trace!

It’s been a few months since the last new project release, but worth the wait. Today, four new circuits are available, including a trace of the Dinosaural OTC-201 Opticompressor. I documented the tracing process if you’re into that sort of thing. Otherwise, onto the new projects!

Convex - Dinosaural OTC-201 Opticompressor PCBConvex / Dinosaural OTC-201 Opticompressor

An exceptionally rare and unique optical compressor designed by Dan Coggins of Lovetone fame. This is a brand new trace, and the circuit doesn’t bear much resemblance to anything else out there.
