ah, I didn't think about having someone etch it for me. I've used several of Bens panels. I was surprised not to see the re:synthesis logo. He does great work.

My first finished module 2014: An MOTM-440:

I have to admit I'm a bit underwhelmed of the sound after hearing so much praises about it.

First foray into DIY. Thonk kits are easing me in!

Lots of fun - more to come!

My pleasure! I am awaiting the Grayscale hybrid panel for this, and then it is on the to do list.

Outstanding! (And a name...sequential bitch- ha! :twisted:)

As for me, today made a sympleseq expander - nothing too advanced, but allows for some nice tricks with my 2-oscillator modular... E.g easily split CV to 2 voices, or a 2-way switch to trigger either first or second envelope with clock etc. Can also patch two clocks and switch between - for manual trills and stuff. (Yet to try it, but sounds cool already! :cloud:)

Then there's space for third utility left - I'm thinking 3-way mult and normal it to switch in/out. Imagining turning on/off modulation of 3-4 destinations or switching between two different modulators and, again, sending them to few somewheres simultaneously...whoa! :hyper:
