Re: Gestural patching (Meng Qi style) - advice please!

Yes that's my hope for myself as well! Outside of modular I'm really drawn to synths that have their own coherent and distinct identity (I have a Plumbutter for instance). My aspiration with a case is for it to be very specific, and eventually several that interact as you mentioned. What form might...

Re: Gestural patching (Meng Qi style) - advice please!

Congrats SonarBk, it's a lovely looking and interesting piece. I'd considered it when it was for sale a couple years ago but ultimately decided against as I already had other gear where I can use those concepts (Vostok pin matrix, Landscape stereo field, and in a more limited capacity the Future sou...

anybody spot any analog frequency shifters? The Metro Modular guys had their 4U Buchla Dual Balanced Modulator and Phase Splitter at their booth. In talking to them they are trying to fill some niches in the Buchla 4U and also prototype in the larger format. If there's enough interest stuff could m...

I like the idea of the larger version but the price of the uVersion is more appealing and would make me more inclined to purchase. Personally I'd have to see the UI and the feature differences (if any) before making a decision. UI is a big factor with modules for me. Perhaps if earx could provide a...

Anyway.. the biggest design choice is now to go for: A. full sized version with proper sized display, proper large pots with knobs on them. 500 EUR B. uVersion, with mini display, naked pots. 350 EUR?

Unfortunately if it's not worth it for you, it's unlikely worth it for anyone else to assemble one for you. Price per HP these cases are expensive but that's the cost for the portability and form factor. Not sure where you're located, there is this one that is similar but slightly larger for sale ri...

Of course films are a great source. Some of my favorite tracks from the 80's industrial sampling heyday are by Clock DVA. As a teenager I bought their The Act EP and it blew my mind because I thought some of the lengthy spoken word pieces were from "real" recordings. Later I learned they just had g...

How's the progress? It looks like a lovely room which I'm sure will only get lovelier.

Comfy furniture and a stack of books. Set up patches and let them evolve, sit read and ponder. Get up and tweak and go back to muse some more.

Awesome, thanks for the response. One thing I would request most of all is that you resist feature-creep. I much rather have a module that does one thing very well than a module that tries to do everything. Maybe get a handful of prototypes out to experienced wigglers and get direct user feedback t...

No regrets here pulling a patch apart. I've always got more ideas to try and just keep moving through them so it's hard to keep one patch up for long. Typically will go through three or four patches in an evening session. Love deconstructing a patch strategically pulling one cord at a time and do th...

There's a bunch with erthenvar 1u strips you can diy yourself. Kindly open sourced from Nathan at nonlinear circuits.

Worth browsing through the thread, there's newer ones added later like a 104hp 5u (1u, 3u, 1u) with lid.
