Looking forward to deals on Piston Honda MKII once MKIII drops.

A good price on one of those would incite me to build out a 2nd rack.

So I've heard. I honestly dont even know the square root of jack shit about what it takes to be at NAMM, just that smaller companies all pay for a booth together.

So I got asked to play a set with 45 minutes notice the other day & managed to whip up an 8-voice patch using my OP-1, Rings, Telharmonic, Mangrove, Plonk, Great Destroyer, Morphagene, and ErbeVerb. Considering how much I'd been playing Breath of the Wild and how little I'd been playing synth, and how I only had a single stereo output, I was incredibly happy with the patch & performance. I'd go so far as to say it's my favorite coherent performance I've done, public or private, on the modular synth so far. My buddy took a phone recording bc my KMix was out for repair, but the audio is actually pretty decent. Feel free to give it a listen if y'all wanna drone out for 23 minutes.

I make t-shirts, patches, koozies, buttons, CDs, sometimes tapes, and eventually i'll start working on pedals again. DM me for pricing!

Thank you!!!
Yeah the crowd noise is surprisingly not terrible, and mainly adds a bit of extra sonic content if anything :lol:
Drummies are just the Stepped output from my Wogglebug modulating the Erbeverb Size control ;) It's shockingly effective at making drum sounds.

Is that Dual LPG like an Optomix but w resonance? (and w/o Damp/Strike obvis)

How do y'all determine how much to sell the modules you don't use anymore for?

I find it difficult in modular gear more than anything else because unlike guitar pedals, a module can still be "new" even though it's a years old design/production. We rarely get v2's until a decent amount of time passes, it seems.

Regardless, I'm compiling my list of things to sell (in a nice spreadsheet) and I'm trying to compare them to what other people are doing on muffwiggler but it's difficult because of how different every listing is.

Just curious if there's some kind of "unspoken rule".

I generally try to compare everything I sell to other things on the market, which, you're right, that can be hard when there's huge price variances on an item.

I also always try to think what I would offer if I was buying the item.

Other "rules" I follow:
If I bought something used, I generally try to get roughly the same price I bought it for, unless I've had it a long time, I beat it up somehow, or a newer version was released.

If I bought something new and there's nothing to really compare it to on the market, I'll usually just take like $25-$100 off the new price based on the original price, how long I've had it, newer versions, etc.

I'm buying the new Planar on release. I've been mulling what joystick module to get, or to just DIY one, but nope this is the one right here.
