Awesome and welcome to the pack! :guinness:

Word of advice: You should make sure prospective buyers realize that your panels are 3mm thick or you will get lots of complaints.

Cheers guys! :-) :nana:

Thanks for the tip about the panels - I've got "Acrylic panel @ 3mm thickness" on both my website and in the product manual .. but i know that such things are easy to miss in the heat of a purchase :confused:

Forgive the "noobness" of the question, but what's the concern with 3mm faceplate? Just that screws people have on hand may not be long enough, or is there some issue beyond that?


Crazy cool sounding and looking modules by the way! I may have just enough space available for an Alias 3.

">> what's the concern with 3mm faceplate?"

Standard panels are 2mm thick .. so there is a 1mm "step" between a 3mm panel and a standard panel.

All depends on how anal you are with your rig.

I ship my modules with 8mm screws to account for the thicker panel :)

I'm digging all the funky colors. Good luck with your new company!
You might want to add all your modules to modulargrid.net so people can start discovering them. I don't see them listed yet,

I've had my eye on the Dirty Glitch for a little bit now (thanks to demos from Paul over at Error Instruments).

Love the ideas and look forward to getting my hands on some soon!

I have an Alias 3 on the way. I'll be sure to share my thoughts after I receive it.

Great modules and demos!

Don't know if you noticed but the audio for the middle two smaller modules (Alias 2 and Alias 3) is super quiet compared to the others

Yeah, all the demos aren't that great (recorded at 2am with my phone) ... I need to redo the demos with a proper rig and add voice over. I need to get my modules up on modular grid too. Problem is that this bad boy is getting all my attention at the moment: .... :p~~~~

They all sound interesting. Would you ever consider selling just the PCB and front panel for DIYers?

Im planning on doing some kits, but probably not until somewhere around July 2017 kind-of-ish

The Alias VCOs look great. I really like the controls and CV over them.

I've got my eye on the Irukandji Glitch Drum Kit. From the demos I've seen it seems to pair well with Grids. And I don't have any jellyfish in my case.

Great modules guys. Absolutely love my Dirty Glitch.

I noticed when building mine that there seems to be an omission from the build guide (or maybe I just missed it?) where R1 (resistor 1) isn’t mentioned. While doing the tests with the multimeter to see if it’s all working ok testing from pin 9 to pin 11 on the I.C socket was coming up with nothing. I spent ages troubleshooting this until I came to the conclusion that I’d checked it over so many times it must be right! On completing the build R1 was still not populated so I filled it with the left over resistor, everything worked fine.

Building the hyper fist now and having the same issue. Are these modules identical build/component wise apart from the I.C chip and the front panel?

I have the Irdukanji drum synth, love it for the weird/wild sounds. Only downside is the output is a bit low. Considering the Hyperfist VCO.
