Hi,
preparing for upcoming McCake,
i redesigned CHiLL interface PCB into CHiLL II.
It now has midi activity led, and on board high current supply for 5V, +12V and -12V

At this moment, this is for experimental purposes.

XL enclosure under development,
XR385 fits nicely in it.

Enclosure still needs minor change : (make more room for top of DIN connector)

That looks great! I am considering getting one or two (Chill II and enclosure) for my Wave Blaster II (CT1910) and Monster MIDI 4MB .

I have the previous Chill model for my X2 and love it .

Since I am in North America (the optional PSU is only available in Euro version), I use it with a Roland PSB-120 using a barrel adapter like this one https://www.amazon.ca/gp/product/B01N812NKL/ and an in-line power switch like this one https://www.amazon.ca/gp/product/B01CWNMB86/ . I feel safer knowing that I am using a well regarded PSU rather than Ebay's "firestarter of the month" and appreciate the ability to turn the unit off when not in use .

I am mentioning these as suggestions for possible add-on items that you might want to consider selling as well (EDIT : assuming that I am not the only one to find them useful) .

Thanks again for the great work and fantastic products !

Cheers!

minor update :
CHiLL III
compared to CHiLL II :
- +12V/-12V indicator LED
- optional power outlet for 'floppy power cable' for McCake
- minor changes to switching circuit, to avoid not-available components

I now have new CHiLL III board, and will make solder kits of it, including the optional McCake power output.
I will start a separate thread for it, as it has grown a bit different from CHiLLL II

Original CHiLL and CHiLL II are now retired and replaced by CHiLL III.
I added the original CHiLL board information to the museum page : https://www.serdashop.com/Museum

I am also making a new linear regulator version of the CHiLL board, called "CHiLLin", which is a more direct descendant of the original CHiLL.
