Subject description: What is currently available?

I have 2x 555 VCO and 1x 555 LFO, but was wondering if there are any more kits available that I may have missed (Euro-panel / panel PCB / circuit PCB)?

Also, are any of the older Fonitronik projects likely to be re-made into similar style kits, such as the PS3100 resonators, attenuverting mixer, or the VCPS?

i never did front panels before, and to be honest, it is very expensive and i have to fund everything upfront (at least, that's what i want to do). i always have to make proto front panels, and they are ridiculous pricey. one-offs are not comparable to i.e. front panel express.

nevertheless, i think i will try to offer front panels for all upcoming projects.

the next in line is thomas henry's CMOS ADSR. i am currently prototyping this nice circuit, adding stage gate outputs, and an end trigger output. hope it works out well.

then i do a very simple 1in4 DC coupled mixer in 6HP. nothing special besides the fact that it will be cascadable: you could connect two mixers on the rear so that the sum of the 1st mixer is routed as a 5th channel into the 2nd mixr, unless you put a patch cord into the 1st mixer's output (switched socket). very simple but effective. you oculd use the 1st mixer as a sub-group, or you just have an 8in1 mixer, or two seperated 4in1.
of course you could cascade more than two!
currently there is another simple mixer available as eurorack DIY, so i am not sure how to proceed.

then there is a completely new sequencer to come. i call it binary game, and it will be a new concept, creating nice arpeggios rather than predictible melodies...
i got the PCBs almost stuffed already Very Happy

later down the road i plan to do my wasp clone eventually...

we will se where it goes.

for the old projects, i don't know. i actually don't want to offer DIY kits for the resonators, sonce i plan to publish it as production module this year... and negativespace (over at muffs) offered a panel for it not too long ago anyways.

The ADSR sounds like a brilliant addition, these really are nice foundation projects, perfect for someone like me just starting out with a new system.

Will the A, D, S & R have individual CV control? Also, have you considered adding a basic VCA to this project? Just a few ideas to make things interesting.

the ADSR is the CMS ADSR by thomas henry, who generousely gave me the permission to do a PCB run for these new projects. so no CV control.

in general you are absolutely correct. for beginners it is tempting to buy a kit, and the ready made frontpanel might solve some basic issues for beginners. alas, it is very expensive, and there are already quite a few basic module PCBs out there. just think of all the MFOS stuff... but let us see where we get!?
