-Quad SPST passive toggle switches in 4HP
-Y "outputs" are coupled to a bus which, via a 8-pin ribbon cable (1 included with each module), can be sent to other forthcoming SW modules
-X jacks are normalled together in a cascading fashion, allowing the Y jacks to be used as a switched multiple, until another source is plugged into the next corresponding X jack
-Skiff friendly (20mm depth behind front panel)
-Robust Salecom switches used and generally designed for live performance
very cool.

curious what you're planning with this and the bus cable.
forget everything you know about sound, then turn the synth on. You can thank me later - slow_riot

cases: doepfer 6u and monster base

Cheers! The bus is really meant for making live patching easier, especially for timing/gate/trigger signal flow. The number of times I want to make a quick switch for an event and I can't without pulling out patch cables.... well not any more :hihi:

This looks like a simple but very handy module. Thanks for bringing it out!

There'll be some more coming soon - we're currently working on larger batches of FIL2s and FIL1s, but the SW1s will be coming swiftly afterwards :tu:

I really want one of these but can’t seem to find one for sale anywhere.

Any ideas?
