Looks like you need a Super VCA!

Nice set of filters---all quite different.

Nice system. The 1490 is one of my favourite filters.

Here's my system as it is currently, in temporary cardboard cases. I wanted to have something wider than the usual frac cases so I ordered some 104hp vector rails and stuck them in these cardboard cases that I made up. I've just ordered some laser cut plywood to make proper cases with, so it will be a bit sturdier and hopefully look better!

One day I'll learn how to take a decent photo :roll:

Love the Wiard Frac modules (especially the cat). Is it still possible to get hold of them?

I had some cases laser cut - I wanted a wider case than the standard racks:

Image

The single space at the top right is for a SD78 snare I built from mangros's PCBs on Oshpark, which complements the Metalbox 8008 bass drum very nicely - I'm just waiting for a panel.

Not sure if it needs them, but I had some air vents cut into the side panels, as each case has its own power supply mounted inside the case:

Image

As it's a wider case than normal I used vector rails for the mounting rails. It's a bit fiddly getting the nuts in the right positions within the rail, it's a good incentive not to change modules around too much.

This is all I have left. I used to have more than twice this amount but downsized. These are the remaining never sell modules.

it seems to me that there is a surprisingly high amount of frac in the UK. :hmm:
is this perhaps a Bug Brand influence?? i guess to me from here, this seems kinda odd. :despair:

I realized that I've never posted in this thread. Here's my main system:
Image

Earlier in the year I acquired another system. A number of modules weren't wired up, and I've been going through and re-calibrating the rest, while trying to figure out how best to integrate some into my existing system, and create another more portable system. (I took out the multi/atten modules and have dropped in a few of my other builds.)

I don't think there's a huge amount here in the UK. I would think it stems from the days when options were limited in the modular market, even more so if you wanted to go DIY.

I'd be surprised if Bugbrand had much of an influence on how much Blacet/Paia Frac made it over here, seeing as they might as well be different formats due to module depth and connector issues.

I'd say that's not really a concern. The Bugbrand gear is way less deep than Blacet modules so that wouldn't be a problem and Tom gladly provides power cables with frac's MTA-156 plug on one end and his MTA-100 on the other end. I use those all the time.

Yes that is true, but I was thinking more of going the other way, I wouldn't of thought all the Bugbrand users would be buying Blacet stuff as it wouldn't fit in their cases. But I'm just guessing here :despair:

Heres my trashrak I picked up, it has fallen into disrepair and dates around the time this thread was started, It came with a squealing Darkstar chaos and a nice EFM Diode ladder filter along with some CGS stuff thats in very questionable shape. First modular anything, I'm really looking forward to getting it beep booping again!

Hey diophantine, it looks like you've acquired a module I built... the "Pair O Slopes" :-)

Maybe the Lockhart wave folder is mine too? Can't tell by the picture. Cool to see them out in the world; I only made a few.
