Something inside me wants to build a Time Cube like device just to say I tried/did! Like I have free time to do that these days!

Years ago I built a bucket brigade delay out of a project book, it kind of worked when I finished it and passed something that sounded like audio.
I published a BBD delay kit in Popular electronics in 1976.

I remember that.  I really wanted to build one, and I didn't know why---- :)  It just seemed like a cool idea.

I used to read every issue cover to cover.

In fact, you could find me at the local college on weekend nights, down in the basement, in a far corner, reading microfish issues of old electronic magazines from years past, making copies at 5cent ea.

I still have some of those in a box somewhere.

Of all the various ways in which my 18 year old daughter has it so much better than 18 year old me did, i think access to information is by far the most significant area.

If you wanted to know the history of the Roman Empire, it was fairly easy to find all you needed at your local library.  But if your pursuits were at all outside of the mainstream [i.e. Everything That I Cared About At All] it was SO difficult to gain access to ANY information about it.

This did breed in me an ability to figure things out The Hard Way [i.e. break it and then figure out how to UnBreak it], so maybe it was good for me in a way.  But man was it ever frustrating.

I Do still remember when i got my hands on my first Yamaha Sound Reinforcement Handbook from, yes, my Public Library.  I paid a few late fees on that puppy until i basically had it memorized...

I still have a copy of Mix Magazine from the mid 70s that had a five page primer on the math of decibel conversion, voltage gain, all the fun stuff that was difficult to mine from electrical engineering texts from EE courses I wasn't taking.

you'd have to ask an old person. (I had two older brothers and they were somewhat helpful, while not very accomodating. I got better help from their college roomates when they visited the homestead.)

Not to burst your bubble but that was a marketing exercise and yamaha copied the former EV Bible (IIRC?).

Bubble still intact.  Obviously It was a marketing exercise. I was never under any illusions otherwise.  😀  I was just so happy to find actual useful information on even the most basic of things. Especially since I had no older anythings to pry knowledge from.

Although I thought the Yamaha SR HB came out earlier in the 80ís. But I think I was too busy in the early 80ís breaking and rebuilding old chevys to spend time breaking sound gear.

I have 10 or 11"issues" of the EV Bible....
It was good marketing for EV, nowhere near the info that the Yammi book provided.
I got the feeling that the issues i had were the only issues available.
And yes, I did learn something from them.
And the Yammi book, and so may other books.
LOOOONG before google became the acceptable way of gathering questionable "facts"....

I remember that!  At one point I seriously considered building it but was distracted with college.
