Hey guys,

I've got a Blacet filter and Quad VCA, plus a Monotron Delay. Do you think picking up a Synthrotek 8-step sequencer kit would be a good idea? I am just wondering what you guys think, as I have never purchased from this company before. It looks pretty nice, and the price is very attractive!

Thanks,
Ted

Whoops. Forgot to mention that I have a PAiA VCO as well.

Are there any alternatives similar to this that would be better/around this price range?

Not sure if it's better, but you might want to check out the SympleSEQ

^Was just about to post the same. I don't know the ins and outs of the Synthrotek module but I know the Sympleseq is a great little sequencer for small money. I use mine in most patches nowadays. Plus Hexinverter is a super nice guy.

+1 for the SympleSeq!

Thanks for the kind words gentlemen!

I will have more sympleSEQ PCBs and component kits in stock in just a couple of weeks grin

If you'd like to receive an email when they are back in stock, here is the signup link for my mailing list: http://eepurl.com/pDf_5

Take a look through the sympleSEQ build manual to see if it is for you. I think it is a lot easier to assemble than most other sequencer designs, as there is very little redundant panel wiring involved.

Here is the sympleSEQ project page where you can find the build manual, BoM and all support documentation: http://cv.hexinverter.net/?projects=sympleseq-v20--universal

Cheers and have a nice day! nanners

Looks very cool! I am definitely interested. Is there a front panel in frac?

Thanks for your interest! This is fun!

There is unfortunately no frac panel! Sorry! Ben offers MU and Euro format panels though ( http://www.resynthesis.co.uk ). You can however use the drill template included in the build manual and drill out whatever format of panel you desire though smile

Hope that helps!

Great, I will look into that! I might have to sign up for this mailing list!

Right on smile thumbs up

Since you are in frac, for a little bit more scratch you could build the Blacet Binary Zone. Its capable of highly complex sequences much longer than 8 steps and has a totally different feel then a "vintage style" step seq. Pair with a mini wave for quantized or mangled voltage output.


A couple of quick demos from me and one from Kent: https://www.muffwiggler.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=39733

From my experience, I wouldn't expect much in the way of communication/customer service from Synthrotek.

Fun is exactly how Id describe it in one word. And powerful.

Thanks for reminding me of the Binary Zone, cerebrosis.

Somehow I missed those samples; definitely something I would like to use. I assume it should work for euro too. Somebody know?

Cheers
Ted2
I will have to think about the BZ as well! thanks for the input.

Ive been looking for a thread that has my issue but no luck. I got a synthrotek west coast noise system kit and everything seems to work. The sequence 8 module was going for probably 10 minutes but just kind of stopped. Not sure where to start looking in terms of troubleshooting. This is my first real kit and modular experience but i am at a loss about how to get this thing going again, if there is any advice or a push into a thread to answer would be quite helpful. I checked and fixed all cold solder joints, looked for any signs of burnt up components and swapped out the voltage requlator per advice from a friend but the led still dont come on when its plugged in. Thank you for any help.

Perhaps start by contacting Synthrotek to see if they can offer any advice.
