Author Full size Boog mod

Has anyone looked at the possibility of making a full-sized panel for the Behringer Model D yet? I find the teeny weeniness of it frustrating and yes, I am old, have a ponytail and a 5u.
I've searched around but not seen it done yet...
fmbeaumont
Love to see that also!

I would love to participate in a Boog conversion thread/groubuy, etc. Full size moog starting to look attainable. big old BOOG emblem on the back! plus add some mods(havent seen anyone doing mods to the behringer mini yet?) and extra modules features effects.

keys, case, panel.

How would that work though? All the pots and switches are laid out as they are on one PCB. You’de basically be re doing the whole thing no?
revtor
Would cost money

If yer gonna spend money why not just build the GuinGuin mini moog? It looks nice AF from what I’ve seen

Should only be a matter of taking the original switches/pots/jacks off and soldering wires to larger versions on the front panel. These components are through hole AFAIK so it shouldn't be too difficult.

There is a guy posting mods on gearsl*tz. He's taken it pretty far already.

agree, then those components could upgraded to something more substantial then Behringer's choice like placing nuts on the Jack's so they don't wobble.

or fullsizeify a roland se-02 and get, you know, modern synth features as well.

This is about modifying it to be put on a large panel, not to use it as an excuse to take snipes at an "issue" that only seems to bother you.

THE POTS AND SWITCHES ARENT MOUNTED TO THE PANEL> VOMITS ON SELF> i hate that. so wobbly.

oh no, it would be the perfect time to upgrade the jacks and switches. Its not rocket science.

Better still, replace the 9mm pots with 3 pin headers

I did it to the Crowminius pcb so it surely can be done to the Boog pcb.

Look at "Presenting: Crowminius" page 41 on MW.

Picture file

And no it is not that expensive at all.

Very nice work there Troubleshooter - looks exquisite.

cad files https://grabcad.com/library/moog-minimoog-model-d-1

plus some others and plenty of discussion about dimensions all over the net.

I did not use that drawing. My dimensions are based around hardware you can actually order like Fatar keybeds, digikey switches etc...and ready for CNC manuafacturing the induvudual parts.

Does that rendered drawing contain the internals aswell?

That's a really nice job, can you tell me where you sources your knobs & switches from please?

Switches from Digikey, Knobs from Musikding

Someone has done this before. They replaced it with the MME board and sold off their BOOG.

Could you point me at those DigiKey switches? I can't think any easy way to filter the massive results I'm getting searching for rocker switches...

Blue
Red
White
Black

Small Knob
Large Knob
Pointer Knob

Actual switches are orange instead of red and light blue instead of dark. But those aren't readily available.
