The chaos generator and CV recorder seems intriging

Are their CP panels smaller than Moog CP panels, or do I need new glasses?

Sorry... if not now suitably edited, please delete thread.

Edit: Right on... link back.

No, not mine... I gather that there is or was intention for crowd-funding, etc.

It actually just popped up in a sidebar ad while I was surfing as that site seems to be currently stalking me... probably from searching for MOTM and 5U there.

I shall now take the rest of the day off to bask in the glory of my mighty 100 posts!

They do look 2Uish to me.

No, it's fine now, and was pretty much fine before - it's very on topic in this particular subforum. And actually that link was nice because you could easily zoom in on the picture and see what's really going on - you can put it back if you want, as long you're not the one selling it (given the geographic difference I would assume that).

It is okay if they are thinner than the standard CP, but hopefully they will fit, height wise!

I'd swear the CV Recorder it's the ACX P-Sequencer with the Yusynth panel.

Hey, I totally missed this thread and modular brand before! It's an interesting, good sounding, and handsome little synth from what I can see and hear. :love:

Here's some 'borrowed for posterity' pics from that Reverb sale of the prototype:

The VCA, LFO, and S/H all seem to have the exact same panel layout as the Yusynth equivalents. I wonder if they are just re-branded Yusynth modules for the most-part... Either way, it's a beautiful looking little modular setup.

Is it just the way I'm looking at it, or does it have behind-the-panel wiring between modules?

Sounds really good actually... hard also to improve on the form factor.

Like all such good things, it seems we can't have them. I don't see any evidence this is currently being made... I remember also a "Marienberg modular" that had very good demos, also unobtainium

I don't know if it's possible to buy a Frobe or not but you can buy Marienberg modules and systems either direct or from a couple different retailers like Thomann in the UK and they are showing many items in stock :hyper: :mrgreen: https://www.thomann.de/gb/search.html?g ... pg=1&ls=25

Marienberg are probably slightly 'unobtainium' as they dont reply to emails..

Well, they replied to me a couple years ago or so when I inquired about a module. 8-)
