MOS-LAB power cable woes...

After a long hiatus from the depths of space I’m back, and as I unpack my MU babies from their bubble wrap, it looks as if one of my MOS-LAB ribbon cables has vanished! Anyone know of a quick source to get one vs. waiting for Seb to send me one? Is a ten pin Eurorack coupling cable the same thing? T...

A thing of pure beauty. Any idea how much it will run for? I got my three oscillator set up from MOS-LAB a month back, and am MOST pleased. I wish I ordered one of these too!

So it was worth asking… I guess thinking out loud helps. I would have to fathom that an adapter board would be a better option every time vs. having to ask for things be be re-engineered to make it -15/+15. Why anyone would not want one, especially if it's potentially free, is maybe another question.

COTK and MOS-LAB: Adapter Board - Just Do It And Be Done?

Looking into getting a COTK and/or MOS-LAB oscillator sets and was thinking. Since either maker's option would require some type of adapter to work on a DotCom power supply anyways, why not just get an adapter board that either maker offers, and forget the extra custom DotCom power socket for each m...

Gotta say, as someone who needs to think about expansion to a second case, and a new (or another) power supply, this conversation is MUCH appreciated. Question: there are a great number of pre-punched rack panels that are intended for power supply and DIN or XLR connections - has anyone simply taken...

Moog P-style case lids.

I started work on a P-style case a while ago and abandoned the project due to time and just plain not even having enough modules to fill it up. I actually made a lid that's basically a picture frame with 1/4" plywood filling in the image area. Problem though, it's heavy. I'd have to guess the origin...

Right, you spotted it. The little box back-side down on the table is a Doepfer Dark Energy version number one... a true "gateway drug" synth. Adding the Moog CP-251 to it was absolutely revelational to me when I begin to fully see what the addition of ONE extra module can do. I then had to ask mysel...

My first tentative steps on Planet Modular.

After taking an unplanned year long hiatus from the Universe of Music due to a tinnitus scare, I take my first baby steps in the World of this thing called Subtractive Synthesis. More modules have been paid for and are on the way from STG and Corsynth, along with another AllMetalParts case (bigger t...

Ya know, I thought I'd better double check and see if this stuff isn't already out... looks like he used to make an Envelope Generator. There's a photo WAY back in the show-us-your-set-up thread of a different looking one. Meant to say "on" and not "and" in the title too.

Maybe a better way to have phrased it is to ask this: if you have 16 MU spaces and want to do outer space, BBC Radiophonic, avant-guard, style music what would say is a must have? A fixed filter bank takes up a lot of space, for example, is it worth it? I'm not looking to clone a Moog, I just wanted...

How would you fill a Moog "P" style cab?

So... after the trials and tribulations of a DIY build, I finally have a case that clones a Moog "P" style cabinet. It needs some finishing touches, but it's all together (no pictures yet). My intention is too use my Doepfer Dark Energy and Dark Time as a starting point as I expand from them and slo...

I just got done Google-ing up "Cynthia Zerosillator" and one pops up on Cynthia's eBay site. The back photo sure doesn't look deep in MU. A re-design maybe? It can't be more than 2" to 3" now.

I've actually had my eye on a STG Mankato Filter for a while. This is why I asked. I think it is a safe presumption that since the biggies like Dot Com, Moon, Mos-Lab and COTK all offer pre-made cases that are intended to be portable, their own stuff would fit. If asking STG and Cynthia to put the P...

Thanks for the advice. I did some research and I really don't see many examples of really deep modules across all the makers out there in MU, and more to the point, don't want a super deep case, especially as a portable one. The dot com portables are supposed to be 5.25" deep inside, and even the wa...

What is the deepest module in 5U, specifically the MU size?

I'm close to cutting the wood for my DIY Moog 12, 15, IIIP style case and I'm getting cold feet as I wonder how deep could some of those Mos-Lab and COTK modules get with the boxes around them. It's going to be 8 inches deep external, and I've planned for a maximum usable internal depth of 7 inches ...

Has it been verified that Mos-Lab units can also use the COTK adapter boards? All of them I've seen listed seem to need +/- 12v too. This whole thread could use a sticky: I never gave much thought to the whole +/- 12v vs. +/- 15v until I wanted to get one. Please enlighten.

What pattern Tolex was used on Moog 12, 15, etc. cabinets?

So, after a fair amount of thought, I've elected to build my own case and try to re-create a set-up something in the style of the Moog 15's look and feel. I wouldn't necessarily put similar modules in it, but who knows. I kind of like the CP, or half-cab size modules anyways, as limited a selection ...

What's up with the "CP" or half-size 5U modular si

Just looking around. I see both COTK and Moon offer a few "CP" or "half-size" MU modules. Does anyone have some of these in a stand off-the-shelf rack? They would seem to be between "U" sizes and wouldn't fit anything.

I'm looking for an all metal case to use with Synthesizers.com 19" rack-ears and this seems to fit the bill. At 200mm (7.87") deep it should house even the deepest module.
