I just splurged and ordered Prettylilpanel's commissions for my Chonoblob, O_C, and Rings (https://www.instagram.com/prettylilpanels/)
It's going to take a month or two, but they're going to look amazing!

Soooo anyone want to buy a black Magpie panel for Chonoblob, O_C, or Rings in about a month or two?

So I looked at the RackBrute.

Aside from the 5hp Power module (ugh) I do have some other reservations about this system. The power strip seems super high up on the 6U case, which would make connecting modules on the lower rack rather difficult.

I quite like the folding aspect, and the ability to have a "modular" case for my modular synth, but I'm a lil skeptical right now.

it looked better than i thought it would in a video, but unless you're 100% content with a 3U and a microbrute right now, i doubt i'd want to make the commitment.

I think it's pretty cool you can switch it up between two 6U cases or a Minibrute + 3U, or whatever. If they start releasing more stuff that can link with it I like the customization opportunity for situations as they arise.

This is insanely nit-picky, but I think the connectors themselves look like ass. So big and obtrusive looking. Wah wah.

Yeah the only thing that I really like about that is the "link system". It would be really cool to have one of the Minibrutes linked to a 3U or 6U processing rack. But other than that, there doesn't look to be anything special or innovative going on with the Rackbrute and I'd rather just stick with the cases I already have

So yeah, uggh. This doesn't make my plan to avoid modular any easier.
I think the RackBrutes make a lot of sense if you're starting with an MB2 and you want to expand down the road, maybe not so much if you have a full fledged system as it is. The link thing could be nice for some DIY stuff as well.

Yeah I agree with this. A MInibrute 2 or 2s plus a Rackbrute and some modules would be a pretty decent place to jump into modular.

Minibrute 2s is looking good. Those sequencer options seem hella fun.

Also, Make Noise has posted a couple prototype + current production DPO pictures on their Instagram recently. I wonder if they're on the cusp of discontinuing / redesigning it due to the lack of vactrol sources...

I'm super interested in Hexinverter's new complex oscillator, Mindphaser. It uses two CEM3340 chips.

Sounds fucking wild and I'm super into it. http://www.hexinverter.net/mindphaser

I've been thinking the same thing! I hope not, unless it's a lateral or downward price move when the do. DPO is on my shrinking list of to-try modules for sure, I'd hate to see a price jump due to perceived scarcity or whatever.

it seems like such a cool dual VCO but sadly it takes up too much real estate for me to consider in my case. I'd have to ditch so much for it, when you can easily have 2 oscillators in 8 hp instead of 28.

But those normals and the extras on it. juischy

playing around with the Shifty and Comb a bit.



melody going into the Shifty is from the DT through the Shuttle Control. need to learn the Shifty more, but already it's a lot of fun to use three outs and flip between 1, 2, 3 then 4 four outs rotation to change up the melody.
