about resistors, capacitors etc etc ...


Hello, i have buy an Olegtron MK2, i have a simple question:


I must use only the resistors, capacitors, diodes, transistors etc etc ... that i found on the package, or I can also buy some new others in my city shop?

thank you.

Hi...it is preffered to use the given components because they are precise and defect free. From outside components there is the chances for defects.

Actually quite the contrary rochmesa! You can use pretty much any component, since both versions of the 4060 are kind of protected: there is a series resistor in the power supply, that limits the current, so that you practically can not "burn" your 4060. If the device stops working however, you can replace the chip by opening the enclosure (knobs and nuts have to be removed too). The chip is called CD4060 and can be obtained from almost any electronic component retailer.


Please note that you can harm the connected components, though. So you should not stick the most precious and fragile parts there.

  • I have been looking for something different in my Studio to generate Sci-Fi Noise to go along with my NanoSynth NS1 & Kastle Bastl since they share the same type of Patching Cables. So far i really like this 4060 MK2. It's a Must have for every Studio. I posted my 1st Video on YT. I hope you like.... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=asB-zqcMWAc
  • I see it's a little quiet here in the forums, but figured I'd drop in... Got the 4060 mk2 a couple of months ago and love it! Having a lot of fun, I love using it to control my 0coast in particular. I just bought a Bastl Kastle 1.0, and it's a lot of fun also (although obviously not quite as open ended as the 4060). They both use the same jumper cables, but I wanted to see if anyone had any advice on using them together. Is there anything I should be watching out for concerning where I'm sending voltage? Do I need to worry at all about grounding? I also know that the Kastle can't take anything that might spike the voltage too high like a capacitor, but would there be a way to work around this? I imagine it would require using an expanded breadboard and figuring out a circuit...
  • Have any of you been using the 4060mk2 as a CV source? I am finding the possibilities to be endless.
