Jesus God Almighty, that is beautiful!

Thats awesome how you color coded every in/out per function. For a second I thought you converted your jacks to banana plugs.

:wow: Very 8)

So . . . do you store the suitcases over the top of your synth so you'll actually notice when your girl freind/wife has finally had enough and is packing to leave you?? :lol:

That is a bad ass looking synth Neandrewthal.

Do you just spray paint all the nuts and washers before putting them on?

What is your color coding scheme?

Looks absolutely fantastic, neandrewthal!! :hail:
Is the spray paint holding out ok? Is it matte or gloss? (i've found matte on metal can flake/rub off. There's automative spraypaint which would be suitable for the job).
I'd like to do panels with stencils & spraypaint.

OK, time for a little fashon show for the lowliest of all modular modules, THE MULTIPLES PANEL!!!!!!!!!! :party:

This saucy little Bride Chamber panel is sporting Switchcraft 112 jacks and scandelously excessive 14 gauge stranded wire! :eek: The tabliods are going to have a field day with this one, folks!

Yep, spray paint.

Red = Logic input
Orange = Logic output

Blue = CV attenuator input
Purple = Unattenuated(V/oct) control input
Pink = CV Output

Green = Audio input
Yellow = Audio output

Grey = Universal processing input
White = Universal output.

The spraypaint is fine so far. The self etching primer helps it stick(thank god I didn't have to sand all those things) and it is the regular gloss paint. I looked at the automotive ones, but I couldn't find all the pretty colors :oops: Just boring car colors. I put a couple of coats of clear acrylic on after and some matte lacquer over top to get rid of the nasty gloss.

Some of them have a few chips from assembly, but I haven't scratched a single one in use yet. I tested some on a mock up panel and found that you have to stab them really hard with a patch cord to make a chip. I never use this much force in real life. I just hope they don't flake off over the years :help:

So I can patch in some power tools . . . maybe even a small arc welder! :lol:

Actually because it's all I had around and I wanted to finish the multiple ASAP.

That said, after I posted those pictures I tried the multiples out and found that my stupid ground wire was too stupidly close to the stupid tip of certain stupid patch cables when inserted, even though the stupid test plug I stupidly used while making the stupid multiples worked fine so I removed the stupid ground wire and will find something thinner . . . . :doh: :doh: :doh: :doh:

to neandrewthal- your system is absolutely beautiful, it very much reminds me of the mountain range to the east when lit by an Arizona summer sunset when the stars are able to shine above. Or as the youngsters like to say Mad props yo!

Anybody got a pic of the back of a multiple panel they wanna show me? (I already showed you mine :lick: )

Thanks! Snare drums (and gongs :mrgreen: ) were my excessive buying obsession a year or two ago! When my snare drum rack was full I stopped. (and I only cheated once and bought another one! :lol: ) I was trying to get a nice variety of unique sounds and looks going. It would be off topic to list them all but . . .I will if you want! :hihi:

yeah, that's the one i meant. :hihi:
I've owned a number of big organs in my lifetime...Once, i bought one at an opportunity shop for $3. The old lady behind the counter said "oh, it isn't working"...,so i turned it on & 3 keys worked, but all they did was make the plate reverb go crazy!! It was an awesome sound. I didn't have a car then, so i piled it into a shopping trolley and wheeled it home. A friend and i got it inside by rolling it & heaving it sideways. But when i powered it up, i had wrecked it- it now worked perfectly!!! So i never got to use the space sounds.
Recently i saw a Hammond advertised for $100 in the local paper, and immediately rang to find out if it was a B3. Alas, it was a different model (i think one of the 100 series), but i still drove out to look at it. Unfortunately, i didn't really like it, and, as any big organ owner knows, they weigh a tonne & can take up the space of a couch. So i passed on it. I've still got my eyes open for anything with valves in it & plate reverbs.

I got this one for $200. Later I saw a couple that people were giving away FOR FREE!!!!! :eek: :bang: It works Ok but needs some repair. I want to chop it down. Not that I plan in moving it much less giggging with it but I want to put some stuff underneath it!

Hi!

I'm new here, though I've talked with some of you before on the MOTM and AH mailing lists.
Just thought I'd throw my hat in the ring here with a shot of my 5U system (MOTM/Oakley/Blacet),
which finally got to the "making noises" stage over the holidays:

You can see the big-ass version here:

Enjoy!
