Author Klee in Wiard Style
jdkee
Over at Electro-Music forums, I saw a user (Mono-Poly) had laid out a Klee sequencer in a 19" x 4U panel that mimics a Wiard panel. I'd make a few changes to his layout to make it more like the Euro version. Would anyone here be interested in a group purchase of panels? Synth-cube has the pcb+parts kit for US$185. The panels would be 19"x4U 1/10" anodized blue with white labeling.

Have you got a link to the thread?

I remember cutting a wiard style klee for someone years back (blue anodised / white infill) - im wondering if it was the same one?

(i have no idea - it was a long time back!)

This is irritating me - im sure i cut that design (not that panel, but that design) so many years ago, but i just cant find any file or email, so maybe its a false memory... : /

I do still have the files for this panel, but i cant work out who authored it -

Looks interesting- do we have a vague idea how much they would be yet?
jdkee
Awaiting a price quote from MetalPhoto.
DomMorley
Do you think it would be possible to use the same fonts as on the Wiard modules on this panel?
jdkee
That's a good question. A quick internet perusal of other 6U modules do not show any examples using the Wiard font apart from Wiard and Malekko. And I would certainly defer to Cary Grace and Malekko on that issue since they currently use that font on their products.
DomMorley
For sure - should definitely be checked with those guys first. I wouldn't want them to be unhappy about it.

Would be nice if possible though.
jdkee
I agree. I'll reach out to them when I get a chance next week.

Also, what mythological creature should appear on the panel? I know MetalBox already uses a unicorn....

you should do an internet perusal of SEQUENTIAL CIRCUITS synthesizers, the american uncial font used on those is the same as or very similar to that used on Wiard modules. I use EDDA CAPS for my DIY modules that I make to match in somewhat with my Wiard modules, sometimes I wish I'd used speedball or silentina movie, anyway, there's loads of nice fancy fonts out there for free.

Oh yeah - hadn't noticed that! It's the same as 'Pro-One', 'Prophet' etc.

Not sure if mine counts as Wiard style, but it's blue and has the same knobs.

Just wondering if there's any progress on this yet? nanners

Just sent MetalPhoto a reminder email. They responded with:

"To get you approximate pricing we will quote 19” x 5.25”; .090” satin finish Metalphoto®; black text on medium blue background; 20 internal cutouts using stock tooling."

Should be any day now.
DomMorley
thumbs up
DomMorley
Funnily enough, I just got a Siel Orchestra 2 and noticed that's the same font as Wiard as well!
jdkee

Actually, no, that is not the same font, but it is similar. Probably close enough for most. :-)

Let it be known that I don't personally mind what anyone does with their DIY stuff to make it look nice with their Wiard - I'm very happy for people to do that in fact - as long as they aren't cloning things I'm trying to sell, or using logos or trademarks, because that could create confusion.

I've even done a few custom panel design jobs for people who really wanted things to match...I'm open to that.

My policy is that I will not distribute any of the production panel artwork files to third parties, but I'm aware that there are a few (old) files for engraving floating around out there that people are using already.
