new handmade DIY stuff from germany - as addons for curetronic, DotCom and other 5U modular Systems.
Do you need for your Liveact a precise clock for your sequencer? Here's the Masterclock Generator Smile
Or you like quite random triggered percussive sounds? Check the Math Trigger Sequencer i describes shortly.
Or just a single-bar trigger sequencer - in combination w/ the trigger decay envelope generator for percussions.
Or a fuzz w/ visualation? Try the LED FUZZ Smile

The front design is mostly non-shining anthazit.

LED fuzz seems to be the new cool. How does it work?

you know fuzzers based on transistors and diodes. A LED is a diode which lightens while fuzzing Smile

erm..... Confused

That doesn't help at all. All it does is point me to one of your 'ads'.

I think you can do better than that! Post a schematic or something. Very Happy

While you're working on your site, can you possibly add a few things?

- pictures of the backsides of the modules. It would show off your workmanship.

- musical samples of the modules. Are there youtube videos of them in action? It would make the usefulness of the modules more evident.

- any background about you, why you want to build modules (to sell, or otherwise). I think it would help people know you. This is a small world, and I can understand people might be very wary. These things would help, even if you don't want to post a schematic.

And regarding schematics and circuit board pictures... I mentioned that the SDIY and modular collector world can be very wary. Believe me; if you designed these circuits, slap your copyright on them when you post them, or give a reference to the actual source, which is fine too. My point is, that this will be discovered as soon as you actually sell some modules, so I think it would be good to just show what you're doing.

Unique modules are always of interest. But there have been a lot of module vendors who have failed along the way. I can't make you do anything, but I can politely make suggestions; your modules might be hot shit but I don't know many people who will buy them without more detail.

Where are your oscillators? Wouldn't that be the most important part of the modular? All I see are sequencers. How do they work? What sets these apart from say a simple circuit made with a 4017 and a 555 clock? And why are all the switches on the 'trigger sequencer' down, squashed up in the left hand side of the panel? Is there a board on the other side or something?

Also have you heard of Schaeffer, who make panels? I'm not to sure about the workmanship around those LED's. A Schaeffer panel would look far better. Smile

PS I found this;

http://www.xs4all.nl/~krooshof/instrumenten/fuzzing.html

on the LED fuzz circuit. How does your design differ and even improve on this version? The idea sounds really cool. Very Happy

lot of hints there Smile

1. no CV modules: my moduls are addictions to existing 5U systems - there're enough VCO, VCA, VCF in my opinion - and analogue sequencers.

2. video is planned. the shown case is too small, new is in progress; and for the math trigger i need 16 generators: 2 beatboxes which i can enter, 1 done.

3. masterclock: NO 555 Shocked
it's designed for a precise clocker for live events and based on an quartz oscillator and 3 divider stages, the mid is programmable.
its has a value table.

4. trigger sequencer: your right - there's the pcb backyard Smile

5. LED fuzz: 2 opamps - 1st as amp, his output to the LEDs by a resistor and the 2nd opamp as output stage.

Do you think it would have been better to have put this mounting post somewhere else? It kind of messes up the front panel design don't you reckon?

I always use brackets. Here is some information: http://www.wiseguysynth.com/larry/bracket.htm
Works good!

song example:
led fuzz used for bass drum (curetronic vcf reso) and SD (vermona er9)
http://soundcloud.com/trouby/hardstyle-bleeps
and diy sequencer, curetronic c301 kit, logan string melody, tr-77 - and for sure the masterclock Smile

bolt screws: maybe use senking screws before putting the printing...

website updated, too.
