it is indeed!

mike - try uploading the picture again and setting the "custom size" to about 800 or 900 - it shouldn't come out as the world's first 10U high module then :)

there be none :hmm:

Looks pretty cool though and it's a tad more exciting than the dotcom ring mod.

Forgive my ignorance, but what does "harmonic processor" suggest to you? It looks like a clipper with a dedicated (simple) LFO, a built-in ring mod, and some kind of mixing function (symmetry?). Or is that graphic suggesting a feedback loop? Maybe the symmetry knob controls that?

I could see how that processes "harmonics," and it is a striking module. While it is certainly more interesting that the pretty boring Dotcom ring mod, until I hear one I'm not sure I understand the function that 2 or 3 far cheaper Dotcom modules wouldn't already do better.

While still garnering a bit of my gear lust, this thing is north of $400 and kinda big. I wish someone would produce Yusynth's single-width balanced modulator design.

Cheers,
Brian

The so-called harmonic processor is a voltage controlled clipper, the clipping level can be either controlled by the internal LFO or an external source. The harmonic processor is connected in series with the ring modulator and there is switch to use or by-pass the ring modulator.


Concerning the yusynth ring mod, bridechamber is proposing a kit but unfortunately do not provide a front panel for it.

That's pretty much what I was guessing. In which case, a Q130 + Q116 is far more versatile and less than half the price. You lose the internal LFO (triangle wave only) but gain a way cooler clipper, the rectifier, and you have enough money left to buy a Q106. The Mos-Lab module looks awesome, though.

Would you be offended if someone organized a not-for-profit group-buy of dotcom format panels using your design? I don't know if anyone else would go nuts for that, but I'd love it.

I would not be offended provided this is a not-for-profit group-buy.

Thanks to YuSynth, Moon, Mos-Labs, and others for keeping the Moog format healthy and interesting!
This is not the place I'd imagined it to be.

Brian, this would be great if someone could get these printed up. I have looked at the Yusynth module and the Curetronic 150M as an add-on to my dotcom setup.
