I'm negotiating with Noisebug to make them a dealer. Stay tuned.

(If you want a yellow panel, contact me directly. Those will be "custom only" though for the same price.)

JESUS H. CHRIST ON A STICK

These things are proving to be loads more difficult to build than expected. 3 weeks late and gonna be later---try doing this with your joints in pain and BONUS it's 100+ degrees outside. The AC is not enough.

For "reasons" getting 5C3/2 vactrols on a regular basis is "too much to ask"

Now my neck hurts, a lot.

Doesn't look like much? This stupid little box is easily more than 100 person-hours of hand labor. Ended up doing most work at night because it's obscenely hot during the day. Why does the sun hate us so much?

These look freaking sick. I'd like to punch someone in the face to get my hands on one. Grapevine chatter says these are pretty amazing and make a person want to eat 😁.

Noisebug has put the product on their website. They are only carrying the Buchla and Serge modules for now. No one else has the Buchla module--yet.

I picked up the Triple Sublime Asseater for Buchla. It's a great module. Is there a reason for not using tiny jack? Eurorack cables work fine but trying to use a Buchla tiny jack cable seems to be a tight fit.

We are using a PC mount jack that has been manually tested to accept Tinijax. We check each one of them BY HAND. The jacks are a little tight but they will fit. This situation is forced on us, because Switchcraft STILL does not make a (compatible) PCB-mount version.

Try it again.

Are you sure about that? I bent one of the 9 dollar Buchla cables trying to use it on the Asseater. Eurorack cables work best.

Also, I really love your Waveform interview. It's the most entertaining and honest read I have come across in a long time.

sorry you had a problem. We've sold about 10 of those modules and this is the first problem I've heard of. Can replace the cable or the jack if you wish.

You mean this? It won't fit on our boards.....close but no cigar

Courtesy of Vatican2, a cabinet with assorted Buchla and Eardrill modules works with the first example of the "Triple Sublime Asseater" module. He's getting this first one--if you want one of your very own, email me.

Nice tubery my good man!
