Repanelling Doepfer 149-1 and 2

My new panel from Re:Synthesis arrived today!



And this is the mock-up:



I have yet to mount the Doepfer boards and I have decided that I am going to use only 3 random gates (the lower 3 jacks) to keep it simple and uncluttered!

Cheers Arnold

That's pretty cool.

The A149-1/2 are great modules.

Are you having to regulate the power down to +/-12v or do they run straight off +/-15v?

Oh right the hell on - Those look great. Surprised there isn't more Doepfer conversion in 5U.

Interested in the voltage conversion, too.

Nice to see, thanks for posting.

It's true repanelling: anodized panels, classic MU interface with MU controls and lights

I have a COTK case, so 12 volts is on board ;-)

Great panel! Please post pics of the back when you finish your conversion. I'd love to see your pcb mounting solution, etc.

Most Doepfer modules will run on +/-15v, unless they use CEM chips. From their website, that excludes:

Quote:
A-106-6, A-107, A-109, A-122, A-126, A-127 (old version with CEM3382), A-129/2, A-130 (old version with CEM3381/PA381), A-131 (old version with CEM3382), A-132-3 (old version with CEM3360), A-134 and A-135

Update on the build.

The brackets are made with my 3D printer:





Small one for the gates pcb (A 149-2):



All mounted:

Great job on the panel and brackets! thumbs up

Those are bad ass little brackets

Damn impressive! applause

And to make life easier the Doepfer's have the same power pinouts as the Club of the Knobs (powerboard in my 8P):

-12v
gnd
gnd
gnd
+12v

Aj55, can you please describe the process of designing panels and sending this files to Re:Synthesis? Which programs were used, any templates with fonts, lines, etc?

I would like to order some panels and design them by myself but don't know how to start and have a design according to the MU aesthetic.

Thank you.

The Dotcom spec is on their site here

Hi johny_gtr,

I am almost ashamed to admit I simply used Paint and did cut and paste some pics from ModularGrid to make a design...;-))
Ben can make the final design!

Cheers Arnold

Btw, its in the 8P case now and working!

Nice work!

I have also re-panelled Doepfer modules:

Nice! Did you do the panels yourself?

Well, this thread sure makes me wish I were not DIY dumb. I just can't get into it! Every few years I try and I just end up not having the time or the knowledge when it comes to certain parts. Looking up a specific pot or switch or bracket. . . I end up scrolling through pages of Mouser and giving up.

These conversions look great! GTK about them running on 15v.

I made the layout. A friend of mine milled and drilled the panels.
I painted them. A pro made the silkscreening.
