I assume Moog might have some, and the Moog Foundation announced they’ll have some vintage systems. Is anyone like Moon, COTK, MOS-LAB, Synth-Werk, etc. making it to NAMM? I’d like to check out some big stuff. Considering a MU system again.

Hi,

Unfortunately Moon and COTK aren't going to have a booth this year at NAMM and NoiseBug isn't either. I haven't heard anything about MOS-LAB or Synth-Werk but I've never know them to go to NAMM.

Probably the only 5U to see besides the Moog stuff will be at STG's booth and Noise Engineering might have a couple modules to show:


If you aren't normally in the LA Area, while you are in town you could give NoiseBug a call to see if they will be open? They have lots of large format gear in the store! thumbs up

And, if you are going to SynthPlex at the end of March in Burbank Noisebug is going to have a big booth there are will likely be focusing on 5U and Buchla formats.

I am in the LA area but Pomona ≠ LA. I'll check it out sometime.

I hadn't planned but I might check it out, thanks.

hihi Yeah, for someone who lives in LA, Pomona is like an hours drive away on average? I was thinking that for someone who might be coming to NAMM from the other side of the country etc that Pomona would be relatively close if they wanted to see a lot of 5U. cool

Here's a link for anyone interested in SynthPlex. I just confirmed this week that I'll be going and working the NoiseBug booth. w00t

More like 2 hours, more from Anaheim depending on time of day. This is Los Angeles.

Ahh, OK, thanks! thumbs up I'm not from there and the only time I've made the drive is like somewhere between 8 and 11 PM on Sunday night after NAMM, and I was just riding so, it seemed like an hour or so. oops

Looking at the CalTrans map right now (1:30pm), I could make it from Anaheim to Noisebug in less than an hour. But the closer you get to rush hour* the more your travel time begins to increase exponentially.

Driving is always a crapshoot here — That's part of L.A.'s charm. very frustrating

*In reality, "rush hour" is the 3 hours between 7am and 10am and the 4 hours between 4pm and 8pm.

John: I wasn't sure if I was going to go to Synthplex, but now that I know you'll be there I'll definitely stop by to say "hi"!

Sweet, it will be good to meet you! This is fun!

In Arizona or Las Vegas, "its a dry heat" that makes you miserable. In LA, its not the distance you have to travel, but the number of freeways you have to use--and if any of them are the 10, 410 or 5, just dont bother.

That said, visiting Noisebug in old Pomona (look for the repurposed Brutalist bank building/nuclear bunker) might be preferable to dealing with foot and vehicular traffic near the downtown area regardless of how many mfg are at NAMM. Certainly quieter.

Don't forget the 405! So named because you'l be driving "4 Or 5" miles an hour...

SynthPlex looks interesting; I put it on my calendar and will take a closer look when I get paid next week. ;-)

And if you go to NoiseBug, grab lunch at El Buen Gusto a few blocks away - amazing pupusas!

If anyone goes to Noisebug, take a picture of all the toys w00t

Just an FYI: people who were at SynthPlex in 2019 most likely saw the huge COTK system there, which is owned by a studio in the greater LA area. I was shocked just now to notice that it's for sale on Reverb. eek! I don't know why they are selling it and at first glance the price seemed a bit high but, considering all the beautifully done customization (cabinets locked into huge sturdy rolling frames with integrated lights etc), the waiting time to get a system that large from COTK, and the fact that when compared to the Moog Keith Emerson tribute modular (which I personally think was over priced (hides) ) it's about twice as big and probably 4 to 10 times more powerful but only about 70% the cost, it seems more reasonable? It would certainly take some deep pockets to snatch it up though. Here's a couple pictures I took at SynthPlex. Also a video of my friend Pedro Eustache controlling it with his Lyricon.

What about 5U at Knobcon?
sduck
I'm going, but I'm not trotting out the large MOTM this time. I might bring a small euro box for hotel room time wasting. I asked paults if he was interested in having my MOTM in his booth, but he doesn't have room.

I will have at least two small 5U systems at Knobcon. At this point, I am not sure if I will be bringing the big 88MU system. Our booth this year is a bit smaller and I have three Eurorack systems this time (hides) . My big push is a new multichannel MIDI/CV module but at this point, even though the two modules are basically the same circuit, the Eurorack version will be the only one ready by show time. There will be some other 5U surprises though.

I am hoping to have some through zero FM/PM DCO modules ready for door prizes at the banquet in honor of the guest speaker, Dr. Chowning, too.

Is GMS-715 ready to order Rockin' Banana!

Someone needs to start a Knobcon 2019 discussion here in 5U Format Modules section. News is going to be lost in this thread about NAMM. I bet there already is one somewhere in MWF but for us 5Users, we might need one here.

I've been wanting to attend but getting away is almost impossible due to overloaded work schedule. waah I haven't had a day off in years. Dead Banana
