Re: Is the cost of a module worth it?

I’ll volunteer that a well thought-through user interface that places the most musically useful options at your fingertips is worth paying for. This is why I’m not inspired by a lot of software solutions, and wind up paying more for - objectively - fewer features.

Re: Announcing ALM017 - Pamela's NEW Workout

Yeah, not sure about the button. Brian used to sell them with BKM stuff so he might know. Yes, it's a black skirted sifam knob with a blue encoder cap. Pretty sure it's the small size.

Re: US source for PJ398SM jacks

That's good to know. The large minimum order size usually puts me off, but seems like it would be worth it if it's really that much cheaper. I emailed them to see. when Thonk is shipping to the US, you don't have to choose, as their pricing for 50+ is excellent. it is more than double what I pay whe...

Re: US source for PJ398SM jacks

Good points about reliability vs price.

FWIW when Thonk is shipping to the US, you don't have to choose, as their pricing for 50+ is excellent.

In the meantime, Emitum is shipping what look to be for-real QingPu PJ398SM jacks - with cheap flat pricing to the US.

The new firmware and the quantizer in particular has got me falling in love with Pam all over again! By the way, for those who replace Pam's faceplate and - ahem- accidentally torque down the jack nuts too much: They will break. I had a jack sleeve pop right off along with the nut.

Re: Let's talk VCAs - What makes a good one?

So if the intellijel quad VCAs is the prototypical "functional" VCA, is there a standard colorful one? Like the vca equivalent of the cheap and cheerful bastyl cinnamon? I wasn’t aware of the L-1 or the TG4 - but they’re not cheap if you need more than one. One plus is the L-1 is a Ken stone design,...

Re: Your 2 cents are more than welcome

I’m not sure what kind of music you make, but random sources seem to be missing completely. NLC sloths, nano-rand, wogglebug or NLC sauce of unce would be low cost, small additions to the mega modules.

Can confirm that electro-smith and AI Synthesis are the only ones that have these jacks in stock in the USA as of today. Thonk is still not shipping to the USA. Modularaddict has them in the catalog but they're out of stock. There are two overseas suppliers, one is Emitum (they are shipping to the U...

Flounderguts, I sent a PM re: panels and PCBs. (Way cool!)

How are you thinking about enclosures for the 19" rack mount and expansion? Are you imagining the breakout to be a separate enclosure, or were you considering them as a unit?

Re: How to remove excess solder paste from an SMD board?

I use isopropyl alcohol (IPA) for SMD builds - before pots, jacks, switches go on, I pour out a small amount in a shallow takeout container lid, then use a soft toothbrush to gently scrub off the flux and paste. If you're using a hot air station and there are little globs of solder that got hot enou...

Re: BKM Panels is shutting down

I've bought plenty of panels from Bryan and never got a comic or anything weird. I also don't care if there's a fish on the inside of my panels.

Nice product, very fair pricing. Too bad he shut down, and I wish the best to him.

Re: best kits and pcb's on modularaddict?

Since it didn't come up in the thread, I'll chime in on the mutable stuff. Totally buildable, even as a first project, but the more interesting modules involve lots of SMD work - and flashing these things is not always straightforward.
