Excellent videos, thanks very much.

just adding to the heaps of praise here: thanks so much for putting these together! i'm interested in building a modular synth set up for the first time and am looking for all the advice and information i can get. i'm very excited to watch through these!

Thank's a lot, everyone! SlayerBadger! It's great to read that the videos are still a valuable resource. Feel free to post questions about the individual videos in their comments on YouTube or in this thread.

I'm a real newbie to Modular - these videos are great. Thx so much for taking the time to do this

Quick question

Can anyone point me to a resource/website that would help me understand or see examples of beginner Eurorack setups that include all of the modules required to have a basic or intermediate fully operational system?

Apologies if this is a dumb question but its a very steep learning curve!

There are definitely a lot of "critique my rack" threads here, as well as a "minimal Eurorack setup" thread I think. It's a difficult question to answer because a fully operational system can be anything from one module to a synth wall. It depends what you want to do with it and there is no circumventing the steep hands-on learning curve. Buy a few modules that you're interested in and spend some time with them. Then exchange and/or expand smile

Thx for your response. I did exactly as you suggested. I bought a few (probably too many) modules that seem interesting to me and should complement my existing synth setup. I'm working on learning them now. Not easy but definitely a lot of fun!

Great videos, learnt a lot!

these videos are awesome, has helped me out massively!
Many thanks

Hello everyone,

I'm not sure if this is the right place to put this but I suppose I have to start somewhere (I can't make my own thread yet and also haven't been able to find anyone with a similar issue).

A while ago I started building my modular system, I acquired all of my modules and 2 Doepfer DIY kit #1's second hand. (the kits come with the PSU with external trafo) I put the two kits in a case I built for them and for quite some time everything worked perfectly. However since yesterday there appears to be a problem that I really do not know how to fix.

The system suddenly turned off. I assumed the fuse had blown and when I checked today it turned out I was correct. However when I replaced the fuse the system powered on briefly and then powered off again, so I took out all the modules and started putting them back one by one. What happened however is the following.

The system doesn't even work with none of the modules plugged in anymore, which leads me to believe the PSU broke. So, since I have a second empty system ready to go I tried powering this one, it worked without anything in it. However the moment I plugged a module in the fuse blew again. After replacing the fuse and disconnecting the module it turned out that now this system too does not work anymore (i.e. it only turns on for a second after replacing the fuse, and then powers down again), even without any modules plugged in.

Does anyone have any idea what the problem could be? I'm wondering wether the external trafo might be causing the problem, what makes me doubt this however is the fact that before plugging in any of the modules into the second system it was working, all the correct lights on the PSU and busboards lit up.

Also, would this be the correct fuses to buy for this PSU:

Thank you all very much in advance!

To my last post I'd like to add that if there's anyone in London (I'm in the South East) that happens to know a lot about synths and would like to share some experience I'd love that. Hands on doing things generally works easier for me than looking at the computer (however this forum seems very helpful!).

Hi all,

so my first case just arrived (iko).

And now the first noob hurdle ... What plug do I actually use ? I know it's a dumb, dumb question, but I'm absolutely useless with most practical things. Wouldn't want to fry stuff. I assume I'd need a laptop-style cable, the plug itself looks like it could be powered by the cables I use for my guitar amps (aka this https://www.thomann.de/fr/the_sssnake_schutzkontakt_netzkabel_5m.htm)

Any insight hugely appreciated grin <3

I picked up a mother32 and have moved it to a 104 hp case I'm slowly building up. Is there anything I can do with the base case/power supply the mother32 comes with? I figure at some point I'll rehome the mother32 as the 104 becomes full, but for now it'd be nice if I could find a way to home a few overflow modules in the mother32 case without needing to pick up another power supply.
realchildofhell
These videos are great! Finally pulled the trigger on a LC9 case after having the Mother 32 for a while. Think I'm just going to leave the M32 as is since it would take up a lot of room in the case. It's pretty fun to play with the Microbrute. Anyway, thanks!

RE:
ArtForTheEars (brand) rack ears... which are mated with their eurorack rails.

I've been using these (19" rack ears) with their 84hp rails...to fit in my 19" rack cases.
But no screws are provided, screw sizes, nor any instructions.
Here's their pic of the finished ensemble...from their site.



LINK web LINK

The ears have 2 slightly offset holes that match the ends of the extruded rails (w/ a larger hole and a smaller hole, per end)
Although I did find that 10-32 screws will self-thread into the rails (or metric equivalent, M5 ??).... and the smaller hole is too small, and needs to be enlarged.

BUT.... if I install 2 screws per end, modules will not fit (module space is too small).

What I do is....enlarge the smaller hole, and fit only one screw per end.... and twist the rails a couple of degrees until the modules fit.
This works for my needs, but it also means the rails are slightly protruding out from the ears. Not ideal, but it works.

I know... 'contact them'. (I will)
But in the meantime, I thought I'd offer a solution, temp or otherwise.

Thank you so much for these videos. I have a good understanding of classic synthesis (east coast) and your information is helping me rapidly fill in the gaps. I'm currently planning my jump into a full Euro case after owning an 0-coast for a little over a year, and your videos are a huge help. Thanks again. One day, I hope to pay it forward.

Cool! Thanks for those informations!
