Front Panel Express library of common parts?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I am planning on building a tube amp in the near future, considering a bamaslama, BCJ or Aikido.

I was thinking of using front panel express to build the top of my amp.

I downloaded the program they use, front panel designer today, and played with it a little.

Seems easy enough, but I was wondering if anybody had projects, where they had already made shapes for octal or nine pin tube sockets, hammond transformers/ chokes or other common hole patterns.

I could make it myself, but I am lazy, and it is easier to copy, especially if someone has already built an amp using these plans.

So, does anybody have anything to share?
It seems easy to make macros based on this stuff, and if there was a library of macros available for common parts, it would be really easy to layout a new amp.

OK, since nobody posted, that means nobody has them?

I made a macro for a octal tube socket, and put it here
http://amd.streamload.com/randytsuch...be%20Macro.fdm

I think if you right click, you will be able to save this file.

Right now, it only has a macro for an octal socket. I will be adding a mini 9 pin, and some hammond trannys soon.

I used to have a nice collection, but I don't even have FPE installed anymore. Anyway, about 30 seconds with google netted this: http://world.std.com/~doyle/

Though I haven't downloaded it and looked, as I don't have FPE anymore. So use at your own risk...

That file works, I just dowloaded it and it has many tubes and transformers macros. Nice find

Thanks.
I did try a google search, guess you are better at it than me .

I downloaded the file, but will double check the macros before I use them. A quick check of the 9 pin mini looked good.

Hi there,

 

I realise this is an old thread, but does anyone here still has a copy of the macros that were at this link http://world.std.com/~doyle/. It seems to be dead now.
