Frac manufacturers?

Post by MrDys » Thu Jul 24, 2008 6:26 pm

I feel like I've seen a list somewhere on here (or another forum), but I can't seem to find it.

From what I've read, the Frac manufacturers (not counting pure DIY) are:
Blacet
Wiard
STG
Metalbox
MOTM

Am I missing any?

Oakley
FutureSoundSystems
Synthasonic - MFOS

That makes 14 for Frac, and I can only think of 13 for Euro...
until Metasonix is available in Euro

Analog Metropolis is doing Arp modules that are frac compatible i think. Lovely modules.
Muff, you must be stoked to sell that stuff. I was very interested, but i have to stay good for a bit...

It's still speculative at this point, but Metasonix may also enter the Frac format.

"I think this PC board will also be usable for Frac modules. Just need to provide pads on the board to change to a Blacet-type power connector, and add a dropping resistor for some tube heaters so they can run on +-15v. "
