Capacitor & Resistor Lookup Guide
Could you be more specific about the specs or type of Vactrol used in this circuit? Or is it simply that the characteristics of most available Vactrols are similar enough to be compatible with this circuit?
Hi Mark, since we have the trimmers, really most any optocoupler / Vactrol should work fine. Good question!
Are they all likely to fit the PC board? Can you give parts numbers for a few easily obtainable types?
Hey Mark Colan!
You can easily do your own DIY ”homebrew” vactrols!! Check this out :
Google it!! Just be aware to avoid those transparents super-bright LEDs, it work best with regular colored ones, like red, green yellow. You can even had a nice ramp effect with a capacitor in parallel!! Nice day mate!!
True that, pretty easy and cheeep!
