The more I look around in the DIY synth world, the more cool stuff I keep finding. The Shruthi 1 (and larger Shruthi XT) are cool, I really like the idea of the Meeblip SE, the Gakken SX-150 sounds great in that Chris Carter video someone linked the other day. Now I find the Drone Lab. * Casper Electronics
I've enjoyed drones for awhile. Various Coil discs, some aspects of Merzbow, heck there are Sonic Youth songs that certainly have drone going on. The entire Silver Sessions disc for one. The Drone Lab sounds really nice and has several effects built in to help build the sound up more. I have no skill w/building electronics, so the more expensive pre-assembled route would be it most likely, but I just thought I would see who all has used one and if anyone has done many mods yet.
One of the more useful mods I could see wanting to do would be to setup extra outputs so you could have output 1 be the mono, but also have each voice it's own output for spreading out the mix into different effects. Taking 2 voices of a Drone Lab and running them thru my Lexicon Vortex while the other 2 go into their own effects chains could be nice. Have all 4 going to output 1 and then if a cord was detected in any of the other 3, that voice would only sound there. I don't know what you would do to accomplish that, but there's the idea
