Testing, Testing - put power to the synth last night

Post by pickleinn » Wed Jul 01, 2009 8:08 am

I fired up the third panel for testing last night, and it actually worked :banana:

i knew the 281 function generator would work, because i tested it a couple weeks ago. This is the first time the MPS got power and also the CGS LED drivers on the output.

Any way, check it out:

Very nice! I'm so tempted now to make all my non best of cgs diy projects 4U Serge style now. I have 2 empty blacet racks to fill, but I feel it's so much nicer designing faceplate in 4U.

I took zthee's panel layouts and modified them, printed them on 11x17 paper, had them laminated at kinkos and glued them to the aluminum panel......so they are laminated paper layouts. i think for now its just a temporary panel, as i really want to match the zthee oscillator panel when i get it. i think the paper panel will contrast too much with the natural aluminum.

I found a guy locally that will laser etch these for me. i am going to drop a test panel off to him (of the design in this video, the topp 281 panel) to try out and see how that goes. if it works out well i may end up doing all my panels that way. I will post pictures of the results.

I really love the serge layout.....my first modular was the 5U large MOTM format - but i love banana's and the functional density of these layouts.

Looking / Sounding great!

That is an awesome panel, the MPS & 281s are a match made in heaven.

Nothing wrong with a paper panel Serge ;)
