So after the fantastic re-303 the Gilbert was just released yesterday! I ordered 3x 1 for me and 2 for people.im building for, anyone else scored?

Gilbert is a small format analog monosynth inspired by what we consider to be some of the best era of Roland™ machines from the late 70s/early 80s. It has a nice “rubbery” tone that will be familiar to all acid aficionados and makes a great supporting voice for your RE-303. Gilbert can be thought of in a couple of ways. On one hand you have a fully fledged analog monosynth and on the other hand due to its I/O connections you could think of Gilbert as a eurorack module in a synthesizer format. Of course combinations of both also work, anything is possible.

Monosynth based on the “best” era of Japanese analog synthesizers.
Original Curtis CEM3340 oscillator
MC-202 style formfactor
SH-101 style noise oscillator
MC-202 Sub Oscillator
SH09/Jupiter 4 (rev 1) style VCF
SH09 style interface layout
I/O (3.5mm jacks)
1v per octave cv/gate inputs
Raw oscillator outputs (saw, square, triangle, sub)
Hard Sync
Exponential FM
Linear FM
CV over VCF
External input (to mixer/vcf) with envelope follower
Simultaneous audio output on both 3.5mm and 6.3mm jacks

Waiting for mine w00t

I´ve tried to resist, but it was just stronger hihi so waiting for the kit as well!

Ok let's go Rockin' Banana!

Still waiting Guinness ftw!

First unit done, can't sequence it though since the gate signal from my tanzbär is not +12v :(

It needs a 12V gate? hmmm.....

it was designed for the re303 in mind so yes, but its just a matter to change a single resistor for 5v gates

Hey man,

You just sent me mine, I am curious if it still requires +12v? if so, can you tell me which resistor needs to be exchanged and what the replacement would be? or is this covered in the instructions? I only just received, so haven't read everything yet.

"5v gate mod should be to change R164 from 330K to 1M,"

Sorry for Offtopic, but where could I buy Gilbert? I haven't found a discussion about this after the 1st run was completely sold out. Thanks.

There was just recently a batch sold! Keep an eye on Dinsyncs instagram!

Fabulous, thank you! I will source one today!

So, theres this teensy little unmarked cap. I wasn't about to measure the capacity, and so was not able to verify it during my BOM review.

I assume this is the 33p for C114, but was not 100% confident in this.

Can someone confirm this? also, I am new at this, can someone give me some tips for identifying parts with no printed labels?

So, now I think this might be the NJ28MA0103H. Any tips would be helpful!
