As I am currently dyeing and varnishing the 66U cabinet of my YUSYNTH DIYed modular I had to move out all the modules and lay them on temporary place.

I realized then that it was a good opportunity to take a photo to show the guts of the beast.

From top to bottom and left to right,
1st row : Random gate (unfinished), Clock Divider, Dual Gated Slew,CV-standards,6 x VCOs,Autobend,Saw-animator, J-H Wavefolder and Dual Min/Max

2nd row : VC-LFO1,VC-LFO2,Dual , Noise and S&H, AC/DC Mixer, Steiner VCF, 2 x ADSRs, VCA, Mixer, Minimoog VCF, 2 x ADSRs, 2 x VCAs, Fixed filter bank

3rd row: VC-LFO1,VC-LFO2,J-Haible Tau Phaser , Dual Ring modulator, Diode ladder VCF, 2 x ADSRs, VCA, Mixer, ARP4072 VCF, 2 x ADSRs, 2 x VCAs,VC-Panner/Mixout (unfinished)

This is truly stunning design and craftsmanship, and I know first hand how well your circuits function. I've built your Arp VCF and Pulse Delay, and am very pleased with both.

Congratulations on this beautiful cabinet--but I hope that this isn't the end of your DIY designing!

Hopefully, this is not the end, I think of other modules to add and I have another 22U cabinet to fill in Wink
Besides the modular I have other DIY projects to keep me busy, an additive analogue synthesizer, an CV/GATE polyphonic keyboard controler (8 channels), finishing my XVCS3 project (an extended clone of the VCS3)... and some other stuff.

Very Nice! How do you like moving that thing around? I'm planning on building a 15U x 24U cabinet, but I'm afraid I wouldn't be able to lift it.

A 66U cabinet is the maximum size that still can be moved around but it's quite heavy already. But this one is not meant to often move around.

OK here is a follow-up.

Now the dyeing and varnishing is completed and the system under test.
Here is a photo of the system and a small sound snippet (patch shown on the photo, one take no overdub, external COTK C960 sequencer).

PLEASE tell me more about the poly kbd controller, it´s exactly what I´m looking for! I couldn´t find anything on your homepage...

Well the CV/GATE polyphonic keyboard controller is still a project, I am at the stage of designing the electronics. Once done with the electronics I will have to deal with the programming (this circuit will use a microcontroller to handle all the options)... I don't expect having it working until the end of the year.

I have no problem waiting, the end of the year is fine by me. Looking forward to it. One question though - does MIDI come in to the picture as well (MIDI in or out or maybe both?) or is it just a keyboard controller?

No MIDI, it'll be a CV/GATE controller.

That is great!
And do you already know what keyboard will you use for this project?
Something commercially available or something diy?

Well in a first stage I will use the keyboard from a dead MIDI controller I have stored for this. Next I will use Fatar keyboards that I will purchase from doepfer
