Anyone interestd in clones of R.A. Moog Bode 6402 or 6552?

Anything modular synth related that is not format specific.

And there are things plug-ins that no analog thing could ever dream of doing.
Spring reverb, and drum reverbs do exist as well, and predate PCM/delta-sigma digital domain conversion by decades.
Sadly I dont know of anyone making a drum reverb anymore. Thought about making one myself, but the potential for rack gear that can leak fluid?

BTW EMT wasn't the only plate reverb.

Regarding the schematic for the Model 6552 Frequency Shifter invented by Harold Bode, the Audio Engineering Society has an e-Library of various useful papers. One of these is an excellent paper written by Harold Bode entitled "A High Accuracy Frequency Shifter for Professional Audio Applications". The noted paper, co-written by Harold Bode and Robert Moog, explains, in great depth, the theory and operation of the circuits employed in the Model 6552 Frequency Shifter. The paper is available here:
