DIY infrared switch for Leslie

Postby Graspieper » 08 Aug 2016, 16:16

Hi all,

I proudly present you my custom made infrared switch to toggle the Leslie on eg. a Nord Stage 2, by waving your hand in front of the sensor.

See it in action here:
(don't mind the noise in the background; the device itself is completely quiet)

Thank you very much for this. You've produced a great guide here. I saw your post on a Facebook group and signed up here specifically for this. I didn't even know there was a Nord Forum. Very cools stuff.

I expect this will work fine with my old Electro 2 and will add it to my list of electronic tinkering projects I have to do for the home studio.

From one Steven to another, thanks :thumbup:

PCB board layout has been updated; capacitor C2 was drawn incorrect.

(Thanks to Bart van de Griendt for mentioning this to me!)

I'm not sure what to do with the holes of the sensor...
