wow, that looks great Draal! (I wish i had your sculpting skills Wink)

I'd suggest going for custom, or customized knobs. I like the aztec gods idea. (or if you're really good,. stanley lunetta, mosc, I don't know,.. pick your "gods" of choice Laughing)

Finally had some time to work some more on the synth tin. I have a knob to find for the 4046 pitch pot but I'm in the home stretch.

nice neat build... How do you like this module? I'm always thinking I should get one, would you recommend it?

Depends what you like. The gain pot is capable of overdriving the input so it can get pretty hard. Didn't test out the tracking capabilities of the sine oscillator yet. I like the sound of the ring modulation but I'm not very audiophil.

I was thinking along the same lines once all was said and done. I'd love to have the skills to fabricate real legit looking enclosures/panels that I see on here but it's one of my many weaknesses.

Easier to do the alien/organic /asymmetrical stuff. Rolling Eyes Thanks for checking it out.

The alien look can be quite a bit of work too though! But yeah, panels are a problem. There seem to be advantages and disadvantages to most DIY methods, and professionally manufactured panels can be cost prohibitive.

I'm amazed at the godawful panel design of a lot of commercially available modules. The typography is notoriously bad, as if it has been randomly selected from a 80's Letraset catalogue. Laughing

Hi all

Since the late nineties I had this idea to build a modular setup, mostly as a sound design tool to process audio files, but never really had the time to do it. Some years ago I decided it is time to start this project and made a list with all the relevant modules for my needs. At the beginning I had no intention to build VCOs, only filters, audio processors, various modulators, etc, but last year I decided to add oscillators to make it even more versatile.
What you see is still work in progress, a few modules are still on test boards (working fine) and I have to make them on proper PCBs.

This is only half of my project (here only four 5U panels) four more panels will be built in the near future. (total 12 different filters, lots of stompbox effects in one panel, other VCOs including wavetable, etc.)

Although it is built on 5U height rack panels it is my own design and it is not related in any way to the standard 5U modules. I defined my own distances for holes and everything. Panels are anodized and laser engraved.

Hope you will like it.

the panels:
VCO
VCF
PROCESS
MOD

That's a very nice modular, chrissugar! Shocked There's a lot of work and love in that. The anodised laser engraved panels look spectacular.

I'm still making mistakes with my panels... in this case too many bubbles and then I messed up trying to cover the exposed silver edges around the decal with a sharpie.... and covered part of the word "Filter" too :/

But the electronics are perfect and I'm very happy with it.

Obviously the design is inspired by/borrows heavily from Wink STG's Mankato, but I wanted more input and control.

By early 2013 a fourth cabinet was required!

Latest build CGS Serge Resonant Equalizer - very nice module.

My modules are still sans cabinet, so they're laid out in no particular or logical order.. but here they are.

Yes! 40 cents a piece at home depot, available in several sizes. sturdy enough, easy to cut and shape. With this one the pcb was a bit bigger than the biggest piece I had, so I screwed 2 pieces together, and used a bit of duct tape on the edges mainly because I like using duct tape.

MUCH happier with the panel work on this Wogglebug, though as always there are things that aren't exactly as I'd prefer.

Uses the Bridechamber PCB and a couple of Dave Brown's mods...most notably I took the 10V/5V range jumpers and made them panel switches.
