IMO those large black panels kinda make it look a little less refined than the CGS and CLee panels, but no biggie.

Thanks for the feedback. I did that because, now that I have a whole bunch of my panels together in a rack, I find they look a little "clinical" together. It seemed like the thing they were missing was some contrast. Not sure if this is the best way to add it, but I do like how it clearly delineates the outs, especially on the latest version with the two FM inputs.

Definitely interested in what anyone else thinks...ctrl-z is always an option until the order is placed!

I like the new blacker version. Very easy to find the ins and outs.

How would one wire the pitch-> Fm mod?
My thought about the mutant index was to add one more switch to add FM to the lin FM input and/or the exp FM. Not sure how useful that would be but better to speak now than after the panels are done right wink

Also, I wonder if there sould be useful to have a external input to the timbre?
(I do have some wavefolders already and the MSU is even more, but it is probably a different character in the mutant timre version?)

I second this. It definitely breaks up the panel real estate and easy to visually locate jacks.

It's not that I don't like the usability that the big black areas add, it's more that I think the way the section titles are done look really sharp and stylish in contrast. I'll be buying two regardless thumbs up

I don't remember off the top of my head, but I'm sure I got the idea from somewhere in this thread [edit: I mean the Build/Mod thread]. Great if someone can dig it up, otherwise I'll be sure to verify it before I drop the order.

Not sure I'm following you here. An FM input on an FM input?

I think it's a great idea. I'm curious what beautyofdecay thinks, how well it would work with other modular signals, but I'll start looking for a spot to put a normalized input jack, as Cat-A-Tonic suggested.

I think he may mean that he'd like the switch to route the timbre section's output between the Lin and Exp taps on the primary oscillator.

i like the black areas, although my ocd wants the Timbre box to be centered.

can't wait for this one!!!!

here's my input: I love the way it looks currently. Is PCB size dictating the HP of the panel? That center section could easily be condensed to have roughly the same density as the 2 oscs and possibly shave 4hp off the width. (addition of timber input could have an effect here too)

I think the pots should line up as much as possible. Not between the sections necessarily, but the small knobs in the OSC sections (aside from EXP FM att) should line up. I love the combinations of knob sizes and dont want it to be set up on a grid. This panel has personlity!

Black areas remind me a little of the TTA scheme (and thats not a bad thing, those modules look great).

It is centered! Within the timbre section, anyway... cool I have an idea that I'll try tonight.

Partially, but not entirely...you can see the PCB mounting holes on there.

I don't know...with the two CV attenuators and the sensitivity pot, the whole Mod. Index section is three pots wide with very little room to spare. In fact I think I lowered the sensitivity pot so it could "nest" with the pot next to it behind the panel.

That said, I did design this panel to work with 16mm Alpha pots. It will save you some panel tetris to use 9mm, but it doesn't require them. Even so, if I did really pack 'em in with the tiny pots I still don't think I could lose 4HP (that's almost a full inch) and still keep decent twiddling room around the knobs.

I'm pretty sure I understand what you mean, and I'm pretty sure I can do it. Stay tuned.


@ everybody:
I really appreciate all of your kind comments and enthusiasm! I'm having a total blast working on this...I can't wait to see it live myself!
