Thanks indeed sir! It makes sense (I must be learning something!) thank you for explaining!

Not too much of an issue for me so - just having to have dedicated cables and dedicated box really...

Thanks again mate!

Hey thanks guys for all the insight! and plus signs!! I do need to decide on this jack issue... It's like... I want to help in the revolution of banana euro... but I accept it's quick fate, haha.

I'm as well going to do a frac format so... maybe i could just go 100% banana on those and leave these as 1/8"... but I REALLY hate not having nana's on the euro. I have some thinking.... 2HP bigger with both types is an option... or so is Logan's idea. I don't mind if you buy his conversion box and wire up your 1/8" to my Stynk Eye ;)

James, I"m PM'ng now! Thank you so much for offering!!!!

I really believe that commercial modules should adhere to the standards of the format. What about just making 2 versions? I would think since you're doing your own panels, this would be less of an issue.

Excited for this! Love the look!

well I'm referring to the ones on the R modules... seems like they are pcb mount, nutless. I like the black ring you see... and feel nice. Hmm

shaft.... modcan A, hell yes. Why not?.. it's one of 3 preferred formats for THIS GUY, lol.

Second of all... that means alot to me what you said. I'm no electronic genius like 9/10 of the people on this forum, but I do think of myself as a designer... can't help it, just the way I see the world. So I'm really hoping everyone loves the modules and you have a blast just taking off work half day to run home and make music. That's my goal...... seems reachable, haha.

Just wish my helper would hurry up and get here.... his train has been delayed due to a section of train track under water?! HAHA. Pick his ass up Sunday morning at the train station. Apparently he has people ordering industrial welded/etched/patina'd gas masks in San fran so.... looks like we'll be needing to hire a 3rd person by fall. THATS THE PLAN THO!!!!!!! Can't really bitch.... i love making art for everybody, would have no problem quitting the other 2 jobs and doing metalworking till I die. PERIOD.

Curious what you guys think... James of synthwerks has graciously offered to let me incorporate his USB lamp-1/2 modules with the Stynk Eye. I could basically have it a separate module, or on the same panel as the Stynker.

This is a re-post cause Tragedy edited the original by mistake!

In the original post I suggested our LAMP series of modules as a compliment to the Stynk Eye. They look like this:

Since the original post, as Tragedy says, we have been talking to each other about the Stynk Eye/ Lamp combo. I will be sending him a couple of LAMP modules today and he will have fun giving their front panels the "Epinasty Treatment". The next trial will be finding some equally wild USB lamps that will fit the look (I have some nice black ones I personally use on my rig I will clue him onto). This looks like it will be a very cool module.

Again, thank you a ton James! I'm working with the art right now to incorporate the LAMP. Only hitch with this is I need to figure out a way quick to get RECTANGLES for the usb cut out. Wish I had my damn plasma-cam already!!! I do have access to a guy's water jet table... might just have to get ahold of him to do a big batch for me.

Anywhoo... my brother comes in tomorrow morning at 3am, so all day I've been trying to clean out the garage/workshop further and get some etching done. I'm etching the name plate for the MONOPOLY case tonight, and riveting to the case. She get's sent off to Rotterdam monday! Also... got a call thursday about doing 3 rush panels for some guy local that's selling custom cabinets to owners of Google?!!!! Needs them monday so... been doing that too.

THEN!!! I just messed around with these while other things were drying in the shop... The bigger one is adding a patina to the mix called "rainbow'... added a really cool reactive rust to the mix. I really like it... the smaller one did NOT have the rainbow added to the pea green/black. Getting close to the look in my head... of coarse these will be black fill for graphics/text then this finish. I might order a GREEN green to mix with the pea green... we'll see. Faceplate ideas will be up later this evening with the LAMP, then once I get ahold of DGTOM, I'll be submitting the layout for pcb prototypes.

Hey I'll check hp tonight. Still kind of up in the air based on if i use the Lamp-1 with it. James is checking to see if I can make the USB light brighter before i decide. I've been down for a month from a unexpected knee surgery so... I've got some catching up to do in the shop (and life in general) But the Stynk Eye will be happenin soon. Sorry... no deposits needed. There will be Plenty made forya once we get the proto up. :)

Okay, back to making progress! I finished the layout last night and will be submitting the placement of parts for the pcb to be made up.

However... I'm having my brother redraw the graphics, I need to make this as ill as possible ;)

Oh and as far as jacks... I'm considering on 1/8" if I decide euro. *grumble* I almost feel like I'm selling out to the jacks that I loathe.... but... I dunnoz yet. Thought about making it a 4u or 5u banana (buchla or modcan a) instead. I'm really on the fence as to what format to release this on. I'll keepya posted. Euro is so overly flooded..........

okie doke, pcb is submitted and will be ordering parts tonight for the prototypes. Jacks will be 1/8", trying to get a part # of the ones metasonix use. We're also planning a separate machine that will be desktop/standalone and with bananas ;)

Also.... modcan a version is also In the works. I've got my brother drawing the stynk eye graphics by hand so.. expect a nice improvement :)

Psssh.... honestly what happened with this project is

A: The guy developing the circuit decided not to get back to me anymore about prototypes / ideas / updates /....anything.. So I'm hoping he's healthy and everything is okay, and most likely just doesn't feel like doing this.

and oh yeah...

B: Metal got too busy on it's own :bang:
