Re: I like my knobs...

Going from MOTM to Euro helped me be less precious about the look of modules. But I like old-school spaced out modules, if I have the room.

Re: MOTM - Module Delineation (lines?) & Output Marking (nuts/washers?)

I don't think Cliff jacks are the same thread as Switchcraft. Just some colored washers would do it, or even colored paper?

Doesn’t Davit have an all-Moon system? His stuff sounds pretty great. But I don’t know for sure what’s in his system. Check out his videos though.

Re: COTK positive experience

$100k / 140 modules = $714 ea. Ok you get the cabinets but still yowza. That looks like the system they’ve dragged to namm, synthfest, etc.

Re: Eurorack, next to 5U?

I bought a bunch from ControlMod, their store brand I think. Low profile and good quality. All of my converter cables are grey, just worked that way and easy to see.

Re: Eurorack, next to 5U?

I recommend a bunch of 1/8"-1/4" mono cables, as well as a converter module on the 5U. At least in my system, the modules are often far enough that the cable runs get very long. So I have those conversion cables running all over.

Re: MOTM Filter Bank that never was

I feel like his intentions are good. I was hoping that he would port the old stuff to SMC then offer converter panels in 5U. But he’s moved on to crazy DSP modules with displays that wouldn’t be easy to port. I was hoping for a Morphing Terrarium with a decent looking panel but it never happened. At...

You hear shades of SH-101 here and there but with a different spin on it. Really creative patching too, lots of stereo movement so listen on mo...

LOL Paul strung us along for 10 years. "I'm going to make more MOTM, I have the parts. But Euro pays the bills. But I love MOTM. But it's too expensive to build. But here are 5 new modules coming in 2010. I just have to get through this kit backlog. OK, MOTM 4.0..." :) But I was admiring the build q...

I swore off DIY. Except for cabinets, power, and cables. No more 50% working modules for me.

MOTM Filter Bank that never was

This was from a "MOTM coming soon" announcement from Feb 2009 that I saved. Does anyone know if the FDNR filter bank was ever released in another form, as DIY or some other brand? I love "which explains the relative higher cost." Even the Dotcom filter bank is $319 (with more bands.) MOTM-450 Fixed ...

What are you gaining by having two in one? You would sell more at half the price and just let people buy two if they want. Feature creep is the enemy.

Re: What are your 5U plans for the weekend?

Not really 5U but it works together: I bought an Arturia Beatstep Pro. It is actually really well-made and fun to play. Two sequencers and a 8-ch trigger sequencer, and I paid $150 for mine. Seriously impressed with this thing.

Re: Temperature drop!

Didn't Emerson's Moog sit outside in a road case for a Buffalo, NY winter?

If it's anything like Minnesota everyone is in shorts and convertibles at the beginning of March, but you don't see your neighbors for a few months in the winter. Good luck in your new city!

Re: Eurorack, next to 5U?

At least in my system, they're different approaches to sound. East Coast/West Coast. So I do a lot more sound design/FM/weird looping envelopes on the Euro stuff and more straight ahead stuff on my MOTM (because I like that sound better.) I also have several drum modules in Euro. I just got a Beatst...
