Hi Everyone - I will dip my toe back in the Muff waters here on behalf of Logan Soloman and explain what we have to offer. Just to be upfront - if the snide comments come - either about Jammie or past projects, I will gracefully and respectfully bow out. We have a great group of people that are very...

Jim, Thank you for the photos and confirmation of size. Think you have it backwards? The larger of the two original grey and orange black tolex cases is 18=7/8 high with a 1/2" rear foot. Making it under twenty inches. The earlier case is 1/2" shorter still due to the 15 instead of 15-1/2" panel. Y...

Here are a few more pictures: I put a pen next to the panel pcb and panel to give a size reference. The panel is 11 inches and 3mm thick so it won't bend. When stacked on top of each other the whole thing is roughly 22 inches high, slightly smaller than the original. We have a case for it in CAD at ...

Reese P. Dubin - Yes, that's my "Being John Malkovich" door.

I'm telling you I walked up to my studio / bench area about 5 times for no reason yesterday after I got them out of their cases.

Not sure why some of the pictures got turned sideways.

Anyway - I'm bringing parts of Ramses and possibly Rootus to Knobcon if anyone wants to have a closer look.

Ron Folkman has been confirmed to come as well. He will be at our table.

Come say hi!

MindMachine Was that Polaroid picture of the ample groupie still attached to Damius? Circa October 1982 Keyboard Magazine. Great article detailing the great rigs they used in studio and live. As I've been video chatting with Steve, I haven't seen it! Also - you know that picture of the 3 Porcaro br...

I think there technically might be three, but they are not necessarily a company. As far as we know, there is only: 1.) Ron's (Original) Polyfusion 2.) Logan Erickson/Scott Radke as Polyfusion Synthesizers, LLC - who seem to be a team, from what we can tell. I bet Ron would be interested to hear th...

I think anyone talking to him will see his genuine love for modular and that he is not out to make a buck because of the clo...

JohnLRice I understand where you are coming from with that. I had actually asked Ron to update his website not too long ago. And as I mentioned he has secured a domain name for the synthesizer part of their business to keep it separate from the manufacturing side of the business. From what I unders...

pulse_divider Ron is a huge stickler for quality. After much back and forth we all decided no DIY for a few reasons. But all modules will be available - including some of the rare ones like Band Pass Filter. Quad Oscillator will be available for you as well as the Dual VC EG. https://www.muffwiggle...

Everything is from the original drawings and schematics. Everything, not just the stuff you see on the net! It's not being reissued with say, single sided or double sided PCBs with no mask...everything will be 4 layers with mask. So "technically" not identical. Same layout, just using today's availa...

He is not touring with them (although he said he would love to have something up on stage with him again). We worked it out with the tour manager to throw the Modulars on the tour truck and then when they get to Atlanta, I'm going to offload and take back. "Whoa! Where is there info on this? Or ANY ...

Steve Porcaro's Polyfusion System Is Being Restored

We finally worked out the logistics to get Steve Porcaro's (& David Paich's) Polyfusion systems back for restoration. Ron Folkman, the original designer and current CEO of Polyfusion, will be overseeing and guiding the restoration of Damius, Ramses/Ophelia, Rootus and a ton of modules with no cabine...

It was literally a couple bucks for MA and SC and that was 2 pcbs - one good and one with a bad mask. I believe we are sup...

We don't set retail price, I think we distributed it to modular addict for a few bucks but they haven't even put it on their website yet due to their backlog. Also Jammie said there was not enough interest for a panel. He had about 3 requests. Everyone else wanted to drill themselves and add a stick...

We are not adjusting the panel for the sequencer to accommodate the divider pcbs. Jammie has decided that he would like to build a separate box so that those who would like to keep the sequencer looking as stock as possible can have that. Currently the enclosure for the divider PCBs has not been dra...

Hoping to have the 2600 for pre-order before the end of the year.

Right now we are trying to finish our 208 (which is still available for pre-order) and then we will move on to the 2600, and so on....
