Macro Oscillator in 5U (THT based on "Plaits")

Post by EOTS » Tue Nov 19, 2019 12:17 pm

Thought I'll announce this modules also here, for the people who are not so much into DIY.

Macro Oscillator in 5U

Based on the Eurorack module "Plaits" invented by Émilie Gillet, licensed under the CC-by-SA-3.0:
https://mutable-instruments.net/modules ... en_source/

Both available in MU/"Dotcom" and MOTM formats.
They have different ergonomics, optimized for each respective format, electrically and functionality wise they're equal.

Should someone be interested in a build, please send a PM, or contact me over at Facebook https://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100008336080650

There are also DIY kits available, for details on this please see the thread in the "Music Tech DIY" section: viewtopic.php?t=216177&start=50

All modules are now built and working fine:

MU version
  • MU panel is 2U wide, etched in Moog-style
  • Redesigned 4-layer PCB with gold plated contacts and mostly through hole parts
  • Power consumption: +15V @65mA (approx), -15V @5mA (approx)
  • MOTM and MU power connectors

Did a video just for fun using the speech synthesis model :party: :nana:

On how to let the module spell out its original name:


… and its 5U name …
