another ebay finding
Similar to many devices from Dr. Böhm this thing also entirely wanted a negative supply voltage (-12 V). My midi interface and the trigger converters needed -+12 V, i used a LS1054 for inverting.
By chance i had a fitting old case from another (failed) project. The connections to the outer world are minimalistic: 12V power supply, mono audio output with full level, Midi In – fixed notenumbers on channel 8.
The condition of the power supply voltages are lead to the frontpanel – at least something glowing to indicate the POWER ON state. Inside there are some fancy LEDs (orange, pink…) flashing on incoming triggers. After i while i finally realized i printed ‘RDS-80’ on the frontpanel while the PCB itself is labeled ‘RSD-80’, well.
