    Reticon SAD 1024 needed

    I have an MXR flanger that's currently not working. I've found that the SAD 1024 chip is bad, as I've subbed one in from a Ross flanger that I have and the pedal works. Anyone have one for sale or know of any for sale?

    Thanks,
    Jerry

    The SAD1024 is winding down in terms of availability. People have sought out just about every NOS source that exists. I imagine there's still a TV/stereo repair guy on an island in the Philipines that has two in a bin, and another guy in an electronics shop in Montevideo that has changed owners 3 times who doesn't know what those 3 chips in the drawer are for. But that seems to be about it.

    More recently, folks have been trying to retrofit SAD1024-based devices with the MN3007 or MN3207. Those chips can be made to accomplish the same things as an SAD1024, but it is unfortunately not as simple as taking the one chip out and plunking the other one in. You'd need to make a little daughter board with a convertor.

    All of that being said, Steve Daniels at Small Bear Electronics gets in a wide variety of delay chips and is a fairly good source for these things. http://www.smallbearelec.com/StoreFront.bok
    Although he and others (e.g., Analog Mike: http://www.analogman.com/parts.htm) appear to be out of 1024s.

    I'm actually kind of curious about what MXR themselves is using to produce the reissue Flanger.

    Wow. Nearly US$100 for an SAD1024!

    At that price, I'd better go dig out the few of those I had left.

    Wow!

    At that price its almost worth looking into designing a BBD out of passive components. With caps and resistors the size of a grain of sand, I should start looking at packing 1024 stages of caps and resistors to build my own BBD on a 1" x 2" pc board.

    Good point.

    I once decided to sketch out a plan for an all-tube digital delay. 8-)

    You need one duotriode for each bit, 16 bits minimum per sample, and 44kHz sampling. For 1Sec of delay, that's 16x44,000 = 704 *thousand* duotriodes for the delay line, never mind how much logic is needed to do A-D and D-A, etc. For a duotriode heater, you need 12.6Vx0.150A, or 1.89W per tube. The plates pull about 1ma at 200V, or 0.2W per tube (one half of each tube is always off!), so each tube needs 2.09W of DC power. The total for the delay line is 1.471 megawatts. Of course, you also have to air-condition that much power out of the "enclosure", at an efficiency that can't very well exceed about 80% for heat pumping from a water-source, so bump that up by 20% to 1.76MW.

    At $0.15/KWHr, this thing costs 1760x$0.15 = $264 per hour to run, just for the electricity. And I've left off the capital cost of the power supply transformers, filter caps, wire, solder, tube sockets, cabinets, etc.

    Sometimes I just like to design things... 8-)
