Hello,

Here's a quick demo:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q3IdZGfZ2gQ (Feel free to share, like, comment...if you like!)

I've been working on this for about 18 months and have started to get some playable results at last! It's been a struggle at times but I've overall enjoyed building and I'm really pleased with the results.

It's only a small portable Modular but I wanted to go for that classic modular look, the wood is American Black Walnut coated with Tung Oil then vanished. The plates were supplied by Re-synth http://www.bigbluewave.co.uk/resynthesis/index.htm who is very precise and produces excellent high quality plates. Better than anything I could have done myself. The look was very important to me as well as the sound.

Originally I wanted to do this cheap, but in the end I decided to go for high quality components, so the Switchcraft Jacks and Bourns Potentiometers used throughout makes patching a pleasure.

I only have two VCAs to build next and I think I'm done. I'll probably replace an Ocsillator with another Filter as I learned 5 was a bit overkill for the size of the box.

Here's some pics from day one through to today:

Big Thank you to Yves for sharing his knowlegde and design, I've really enjoyed the project. And a big thank you to all who's helped me on this forum, I would not have been able to finish this without this forum.
