More TAKAAB modules I see

Post by Maneville » Sun Feb 04, 2018 3:04 am

Just a quick heads up for those who're interested, it appears that TAKAAB are branching out into new modules.

As well as their LFO 35GBP + postage
here

And their mixer 22GBP + postage
here

They've now added an exponential VCA 45GBP + postage
here

And a 2x buffered mult 22GBP + postage
here

On the back of my being happy with their LFO, I've pulled the trigger on the buffered mult, it's due to get to me around 14th February, and I'll do another upload of pics and impressions when I get it.

I wonder what's next for them?

i'd love to see something a bit cheeky, like a sequential switch, or logic or summin' like that.

Love that they are redefining 'entry' level.

Like the LFO. I only wish I knew the mA requirements for the modules

MrTurboparrot Well FWIW I sent a message through eBay asking what's next. When I hear, I'll pass it along.

Did not expect to see THAT 2180 chip on their VCA: this is hi-fi stuff right there. Alex (http://l1-su) has been using those on many of his designs. They are expensive but audio performance is second to none. Certainly not the op-amp you'd generally find on a £45 VCA! :omg:

radiokoala I'd wondered about that, but am still wrapping my head around VCAs and the whole linear/exponential thing, so didn't know and didn't get one of those, too. Maybe I'll have to look again...

Just been swapping messages with the TAKAAB people, and their plans for the future are:
We plan to develop modules for a full basic system over the next year or more, ultimately to be marketed here in Thailand but they will be available worldwide via Ebay and the Siam Modular website. Next releases will be passive attenuator, VCO, case, power supply/boards then maybe ADSR. Probably in that order.
So that'll be more orders for me, then, probably the VCO, but maybe the ADSR, too...

Update

Arrived today - no problems through customs - no surcharges for Import Duty or VAT - and arrived on schedule.

Packed excellently, once more.

Racked it, tried it, and it does exactly what it's supposed to.

That makes Takaab 2 for 2 for me.

VCA

Post by myfinekilt » Wed Feb 28, 2018 2:47 pm

Received my vca today.

Sounds great, really responsive.

2 audio ins, 2 cv in, 1 audio out.

A lot of fun. Well made, good value.

I got the LFO and MIX and I'm happy with both - and they're quite fun to use in conjunction with eachother for some mangled CV ! :zombie:
Arrived in individual packages, well protected and no customs charges.
Might pull the trigger on a few more of these budget utility items - handy to have...... although nothing listed on their ebay account today I see :hmm:

Hi, this is my first post...I have been interested in loads of posts on here but just never got around to actually joining. Just thought I would also add to this thread to say that I have all of the modules by TAKAAB and I’m really impressed by the build quality and the design. For the price they are great! :)

For people who can't get a shipping rate over ebay to their country, just FYI I bought some TAKAAB modules off their website

http://www.siammodular.com/takaab-3lfo- ... zer-module

They took a few weeks to arrive but shipment tracking was good and they arrived in the same condition as the pictures above. Good stuff.

They didn't have USA shipping listed on their site but I sent an email to them and they sorted it out very nicely. I think it was pete and or Nui that helped me

It’s on eBay for £19.99 plus £3 gbp postage.....think I’ll have to get one at that price.

Well, the dual LPG arrived yesterday and I had a quick play with it, utterly superb module for the money, the switch to change tone is a nice feature, looks good and sounds good.

I'm really enjoying their 4hp VCA module. As noted earlier, it uses the 2180 chip (like the awesome Manhattan Analog VCA) and can be super clean or can be driven nicely into distortion. 2 inputs, 2 CVs each with their own attention. Great price and the folks at Takaab were quick to contact me to let me know it was on it's way with tracking. I also just got their dual passive LPG which offers a lot of sonic versatility in a passive, 3hp module.
