My Euro to MOTM+Euro conversion project

Post by BlinkyLights » Wed Feb 05, 2020 8:30 pm

In this thread I will document my experience in converting some Eurorack modules of mine to MOTM sized and styled panels (but 2mm thick, and I will be keeping the Euro sized jacks and Euro power).

This project is just meant to gain the spacing/knob resolution of 5U, I like the rest of Euro just fine, and these modules are ones I'd never sell so I don't mind change...

First on my list is my uLFO, and a Doepfer 183-2 for its Resets as well as a Quad Attenuator from SSF, all rolled into one custom Panel I'm working on in Illustrator.

More details as they happen. It all started by me having a Matriarch and then a Grandmother and being so much happier with that type and size panel spacing...

I'll be breaking all manner of rules and conventions.

* 5U MOTM outside panel dimensions, but 2mm thick.
* Screw holes will be oval and where eurorack holes go
* I will use eurorack rails and power and 3.5mm jacks.
* Panel designs will follow no normal 5U conventions.

Sounds interesting! Post pictures.

What drives the 2mm thick?

Hiya BlinkyLights,

Any updates for us? Hope the conversions are going smooth! :)

Ive seen all manner of power adaptations and am curious how your approached it.

Hope all is well,

Trying to build up my 5U/COTK/MOTM and MODCAN B, send me a message if you are selling gear and thanks!
