Seems more cards are getting released these days so I thought since they seem to be all black and I am seeing more demand for black panels that it would only make sense to make a dedicated black panel with a double card holder. I have the kits available now.
It’s not every year we get a new Star Wars movie and considering how much the first ones influenced me I had to do something to show my appreciation. I borrowed the electronics from the ‘Sounds of Star Wars’ book and added a backlight to the LCD screen and CV controls for the buttons. So, every time I want to feel like a kid I can patch away!
Includes 256 sounds from the first six movies. Plenty for me to get the FORCE on:)
If you know how much I like the Korg MKP2s then you would think it just would be a matter of time before I would get around to euromodding a Kaossilator! I honestly do not know what took me soooo long. I guess I thought I would not need a dedicated phrase synth in my eurorack. But after playing with it for only a few minutes I found the acoustic instruments very pleasing and flexible to use. I thought having CV control over the play function would be great and keeping it fairly small at 20HP would work too.
Seeing this made me long for the older 80’s drum machines and I knew it would also be nice if I could get this into my eurorack using the least amount of space(HP) as possible. Well, getting 8 vintage percussion sounds into 10HP works for me!
Ty Humphrey aka ‘Video Dub Poobah’ had a chance to test out a HDP video prototype at a live show put on by AnalogueHaven. Here is a shot of his setup at the show. Ty told me he ran it for 7 straight hours with no problem. I took a standard video player you can get from eBay and then converted it for eurorack use. Many people are not aware there is a video synthesis side to eurorack. One of the places you can find more info is HERE which is the video forum section at Muffwiggler.com
With most of my time being spent in euro these days I was missing some SID sounds. Yes I know there is a SID module out there, but I was missing Sammich, so I eurofied it! Conversion took a little bit of doing and some modifications were necessary. The biggest being the extra row of LED’s on top for the CV/Gate conversion indicators, but other than that I now have Sammich in my eurorack!
Ever have two modules go together so well, like peanut butter and jelly?
Well I have two so I decided they should marry and become one. Introducing the happy marriage of Grains from Ginko Synthese and Echo from Synthrotek!
I added a vactrol as a vca between them and the vca is normaled to the jacks so that patch is internal. However if you want to use the Echo and detach it from the grains, all you need to do is insert your new source into the ‘in’ jack.
Went a little crazy on the screenprint and tried a deep pink and subtle grey on a flat black panel.
