I'm newish to bananas. I started building the RS Serge 4x4s at the beginning of the pandemic when I found myself with a lot of free time (a couple modules have been pulled from the case for trouble shooting). Now i've turned my attention to Buchla. I can only claim the 266r as my own build right now, but I'm starting a 227 tomorrow, and I have a few kits coming from SAModular. Forgive the euro, I'm still in recovery.

@dksynth, what is that rack setup for the Serge? It looks awesome.
Hey, it's 3D printer bar stock / maker bar / bunch of names for it I think.

There are t-nuts that slide inside and you screw from inside the boats into the blind T-nuts inside.

I got all the parts I needed from these guys who also shipped it for free: https://spool3d.ca/2020-aluminum-extrusion/

2020 extrusion for the legs and 2040 for the side bars.

Pretty pleased with these, though not 'new'!

@the bad producer:

that's the Sketchy special 'Quadra'? What's the frequency shifter?

It's by a chap called Bagoly Synth from Berlin, he designed a new FS based around all modern IC's (2164 etc) that is pretty great!

I gotta say that over many years worth of seeing your designs they are consistently beautiful. Your designs are fucking awesome and in a unique way. :tu:

Is it DIY?
Where can we find it? A search on Bagoly Synth and also Bagoly Synth frequency shifter gave no answer.

If you know, how does it compare with the other analog freq shifters? moog-Bode, Buchla, Serge, Haible, Doc SnE?
The others I know of like Modcan are digital or hybrid.

Yes DIY, I was lucky enough to be a beta-builder. He is on Instagram as @bagoly.synthesizer

Thank you. Any way to get details besides instagram?

Added a question to prior post while you were replying. Any thoughts in how it compares to the others listed?

I don't know the Buchla or Bode, but I do know the Haible, a bit hard to compare as that has quite a bit extra, or maybe different going on. It's very good, clean, and works and tracks very well, also quite a small footprint due to all SMT design. Quite a bit of calibration (as with all FS's I guess :hihi: ) but you can dial it in very accurately. I don't want to speak out of place as it's not my design, but I do believe there might be a V2 in the works, and I don't know the details myself.

Thank you.
I guess if it's only instagram it's off the table anyways. :(
I do look at pages by typing instagram.com/'name'. But outside of what I can see by that, whatever it is, doesn't exist.

So frustrating isn't it? Grrr.

Individual post links sometimes work without an account/login. Here's something involving the Bagoly Frequency Shifter. This is all I could find.

Thank you, cygmu. That's an above and beyond response! Much appreciated.

More generally, and perhaps selfishly
I wonder how -outside of instagram- one might find the PCB size, BOM-build cost and means to order?

It's not actually 'out' as yet, but I'm sure when it is all those things will be available! PCB is 2" x 6" though (Serge style)

Ah, OK, I missed that your beta build wasn't part of a completed beta. When you said v2, I though that meant v1 was out there somewhere. Besides beta builds. Sorry all for the thread sidetrack.

Interesting backdrop for the Serge. Does that mean you're into 'bug'* music?
Did you collect them or are they purchased 'wall art'?
Wut? We can't talk about synths ALL the time.
