This gets my nomination for "Most Beautiful Module of 2014".

100% Class.

Looks beautiful but it sounds :flamey:

I really need to start a 5U...

Thank you Smokey :)

I have spent and still do spend a lot of time just staring at it.
It feels and looks extraterrestrial.
It even chose it's own name. :lol:

"Which is better? It all depends on how you use your synthesizer. By the way, for the record, the first commercially available 1 V/oct (expo) synths were the modular Moog systems, while the first commercially available Hz/V (linear) were the modular Moog systems. What? Both? Yes. The 901 A "oscillator driver" was an expo converter, and then the multiple (usually 3) 901 B VCO's were linear, and they tracked each other in harmony - Before Korg or Yamaha, even before PAiA! Meanwhile, a larger Moog had several sets of 901 A/901 B VCO's, and they could all answer up from the same keyboard. On the kick-ass chord blast on ELP's "Tank", from their first album, you are hearing linear AND expo oscillators all tracking!! But understand the principle: Between the keyboard and each oscillator is one and only one expo converter"

Thank you! :)

No plans to bring this module to euro.
If I did/do euro I would be starting from scratch and aiming straight for the sun.

Hi zeroSum - I like the sounds of modules what you do.

Is there any possibilities to get this module anymore?
(I live in Europe)

How difficult is to place the tube (without breaking the whole thing :help: )

Yes :)
It needs a lot of +5 though. Nature of the beast.

It is easier to grip the tube wearing gloves.
It's easier to put the tube in than to take the tube out.
Just grip the 3mm thick panel tightly, and align the key of the 2050 tube with the key of the tube socket and push it in.
It takes some work but it isn't too bad.
Grip the tube at the bottom rather than by the glass.

Ok - so is it possible to get this from Escape from noise webshop? Or should I make order directly to you?

How deep is this module ?

Thank you :)

I'll need to order some parts but I can get you taken care of.
Send me an email to discuss details.

Yeah it isn't very deep. the PCB is mounted on 14mm standoffs,
then the capacitors add an another inch.

I had a week ago first gig with 6550-99, It was super fun :sb: :sb:

Next live event will be in this Sunday :hyper:



And today I finally finished this cabinet. I found couple of old drawers and build it using those. Because they were not deep enough I had to make/glue/screw those green things.

It is not the nicest one but it is sturdy and solid. I used 18 screws to attach
Dotcom Box4 into drawer so I do not have to worry that those oscillators would shake inside cabinet.


Now I can safely carry 6550-99 to venue places AND that is :party:

Yeah it is Synthdotcom Box4.

I have hidden Dotcom power inside that suitcase and I divide power with dincables to Blacet time machine, Zeroscillator and 6550-99 etc.
