Had a somewhat similar problem with mine, just all of the adhesive on the tabs stopped sticking to the skiff and the psu had shifted a lot by the time I got it. Works fine and everything but I think Make Noise would be better off with a stronger mounting solution. It'd feel a lot more rugged if it was bolted down.

Also, do you ever have an issue with the power supply jack being a little loose for the plug? Mine has definitely slipped out a few times when moving it a few inches on my desk.



... and that's not a euphemism.


EUPHEMISE MY DESK INCHES.

i..... have NOT had a problem with the jack. but i don't shift it around much? yay! something to look forward to!

I have 2 MN skiffs and both have v. loose power jacks. I am not a fan of this shortcoming.

Office Cock vs Loose Power Hole

yah. it's not the most robust design, but whatever. MN got back to me super quick with the Mouser parts number, going to swap in new ones in a hinute.

^^^ Nice. What's the deal with those? Why four? Do they hook up in the back with a secret handshake cable to make a mega-sequencer or something? I want to try pretty much every XAOC module but only have Sewastopol II at the moment.

Also I have an incoming loot. DOOF.

Doof INDEED!

yeppers! they have interlink cables that turn them from a 4 to 8 to 12 to 16 step sequencer.

it's kinda a missed opportunity that only the master has gate/CV out. i didn't click with the Octones, but i thought it was clever that a second Octone would send out CV and a musical interval to the Master.

WHAT'S A DOOF.

I rock a bunch of NLC stuff and 100% of it is BONKERS. I don't understand the math behind guy's creations but he's a true scientist of chaos.

My Make Noise skiff power jack is fairly stiff and sturdy. Haven't had any trouble with it so far.

Also, my preorder for XAOC's Zadar is finally shipping! I think I preordered it months ago lol. Almost forgot it was on order...

Really want to get QPAS now that I sold my Morgasmatron, but will probably wait a bit to figure out exactly what I want before ordering (and hopefully get a tasty discount).

That Zadar thing looks so completely badass and one day I hope to have one racked up in one of my various racks. I don't even understand all its features but the features I do understand look badass. It's like the hyper-future version of this:
