Lives for gear

No worries. My design has changed, and so has the name of the Device.
I call it a REFM (random enough for me) as it is neither a pure LFSR nor a
Turing machine.

Once my order goes in I can start building.

As I use ring oscillators rather than white noise, and I do not use XOR gates
on the shift registers it can not be called a LFSR nor a Turing machine.

I plan to run 4 separate 8 bit DAs on a 32 step shift register, so it will output
the same CV, but offset 8 steps per DA.

When it is built I will make a demo of it!
