Great idea ! Many things have changed in 10 years and this can be a great place for new people to get updated info.

On thing that I would suggest is to really differentiate between MU manufacturers and MOTM. This is a topic that get many newcomers confused. Also I would only list active manufacturers to avoid people looking to buy modules that are not available.

A list of "non active" manufacturers can be made as a reference.

Finally.... There is ALWAYS A SALE at Lower West Side Studio. Purchase 4 or more items at a time and receive a 10% discount on your order. That's ON TOP of any sale price or discount coupon you may have. We appreciate your business and want you to know it.

Thanks for the suggestions. I've made a brief start to the list in the first post having taken them on board.

Anyone reading - please feel free to post relevant details of manufacturers I can add to the top post. I'm really not up to date with 5U manufacturers these days and am relying on help from everyone to populate the list and keep it relevant.

A few weeks ago I saw a thread about Electro-Smith with an MU VCO and an MU LPF, both say assembled or DYI. I know nothing about them, but they are on the website: https://www.electro-smith.com/modular. It seems that I have seen other's pop up like that as well, but this is the only one I can find on the first page of the forum.

The R24 sequencer is MU format.

They're added now - thank you.

What's the deal with Synthesis Technology these days? I see Paul no longer sells MOTM modules but they're available from e.g. Synthcube? I'm guessing that's for legacy modules only and there's no new ones coming from Paul?
If that is the case then I'd probably put him in the non-active category with a note to that effect.
sduck
Yes, he's quit doing anything with 5U, and sold the rights for reselling the 5U stuff first to Bridechamber, and now to synthcube.

I’m quite sure, that happy nerding is based in ukraine.!
