One more resource that may also be relevant is the SDIY wiki.

SDIY Wiki

To a certain extent, it will duplicate some of the links you have already captured, but there is other useful information on there as well.

20 Objects Ardcore

Post by GiliRose » Thu Feb 25, 2016 5:31 pm

OK...
This is a little odd kid, but they show all their examples
using an MU system and do provide for that little something-else
factor. And I love the fusion of Arduino + Modular, I'm
sure it hold great promise!!!
And they have a DIY KIT!!!

Paulstone - that seems like a very useful module!
Arghhh - just got started with my Hex.Inverter MIDI2CV,
but this one seems to have some very nice Xtras!

I'll make note of it on the Landing page

I designed a busboard for 4 pin MOTM connectors and a few Eurorack/Curetronic and COTK connectors which is spacier than the MOTM busboard.
Made a run of 50 of which 14 are currently left.

Does that count?

Sure that counts! I'm just not to sure there will be any SynthTech MOTM
left on the planet to hook up to the bus :-)
Hope your well and best wishes

And there is no real reason to not use MOTM (MTA 156) distro boards with MU/DotCom (MTA 100) modules. ALL my MU cases have MOTM distro boards in them, I just make MTA 156 to MTA 100 power cables. :tu:

Not sure if this belongs here, but I recently discovered these very nice prototyping boards from Liivatera that have MOTM-style MTA 156 power supply holes already made!

And reasonable pricing at Euro 7.50

Thanks Gil,

Take a look at the schematic on those boards - it is really nicely laid out!
