moogerfooger box

Post by Luka » Sat Nov 22, 2008 6:29 pm

im making something in a moogerfooger style box
can someone quickly measure up the dimensions if they have one
measurements dont have to be ultra accurate, just rough is fine

box length x width x height
wood panel width x length x height

also does it use a wallwort / wall adapter or can you just plug it in with a IEC cord?


thanks kids

this is what im making..
first draft of my Jhaible Compact Clone phaser box

still lots to add and tweak on this design

Nice looking design! I have the Analog Delay, it uses a 9v wall wart. Dimensions are 9''L x 6"W, 2.5"H (at it's highest point, at the top), then the side panels taper down to 1" at the bottom. This includes the wood. The wood is about 1cm thick, and only comes up about 1mm or 2mm from the metal, all round.

What are you using to do your graphics?

thanks for that
they are a lot smaller than i thought


im just using photoshop, its a good program to muck around with ideas
not so good for vectors, hence my vectors are a bit cut and paste
it is killing my macbook though as it isnt UB, im still using CS1 :/

no more student software prices for me, dang
wish i had bought a whole tonne of software before i finished uni

Luka, if you are gonna make those, I'd love to pick up a couple of blank boxes from you. You already KNOW what I'm gonna stuff them with!

I'm thinking about right that now, still a few months of working on my M.Sc. thesis left... I haven't really bought that much student-priced software since what I have is from companies that either don't have those discounts or have some catches with the student licenses.

I've been thinking about making the Compact Clone at some point too. I haven't checked out the schemos nor parts lists that well yet, does it have any hard-to-find / expensive stuff?

yeah the lamps / lamp sockets and relays are pretty annoying to find
however you can buy a rare parts kit from bfunk on electro-music
