I finished this SEKU sequencer sometime over the summer- Its a 16X2 sequencer with pulse outputs on each step and a dedicated gate buss. The panel was done on a piece of milky-white poly-carb that I coated with a black paint- the graphics were then relieved from the paint with a cnc machine. I made 4 custom backlights to shine light through the graphics and light up the panel.

It took waaaaay too long to finish this (mainly because of the panel) and although I think the panel looks fairly cool, I think next time, i'll opt for a simpler, utilitarian panel over something more....er.....gimmicky. I'm really looking forward to getting my hands on a set of klee boards next run....one can never have too many sequencers! Very Happy

All in all, a pretty easy and fun build, though. And integrated very well with my setup.

Shocked great job!

i suppose these custom backlights are some sort of cold fluopipes (like ones sold for pc cases)? just four? marks look very well lit.

like it very much.
cheers

Actually, they are just LED's attached to diffusion panels- nothing fancy, but they did the job quite well draw very little current. You can notice that the top right quadrant of the panel is a bit dimmer than the rest of the panel- I never got the whole thing smoothed out completely. I was gonna do a full frac rack of modules with backlighting, but it became very clear after completing this project that there just isn't any thing like a sturdy metal panel.

Thanks for the kind words Smile
