MacBeth x-series (3u) eurorack compatible?

I am wanting to build a small euro rack system with some quality components and was wondering if the Macbeth x-series is compatible with this format? Any advice is greatly appreciated.

Good to hear! Yeah I've done some more researching and I see that now. I was also wondering if I could use my Little Phatty stage 2 (various moogerfoogers) as well as my S.E.M Pro with a Eurorack system? Do I need any sort of CV adaptor or is it just 1/4 - 1/8 cables? Also was wondering if I can use banana plug's in the Eurorack format? I have so many questions and I will learn as I go along but any help would be appreciated.

Also one last thing... I know modulars are mono but does anyone know of any polypohonic modules for playing chords and what not if I did want to make a simple poly-synth?

well, whatever the jacks are in the modules are the cables you need.. if it's 1/8 jacks you can't very well use banana cables. there are stackable 1/8 cables made by tiptop audio though.. that are designed to work with euro and any 1/8 jacks. if you really want to use banana cables in euro then you'd have to convert all the jacks to banana jacks in every euro module that you use. a real PITA.

as far as 1/4 -> 1/8 and 1/8 -> 1/4 just use good adapter cables and you'll be fine.

there are a couple poly modules in the works. i forget the manufacturers but there was a thread somewhere at muffwiggler which i don't have time to search for. i think it's tip top audio making a poly oscillator. can't recall though. also, you can get multimbrality pretty easily.. many (different) sounds happening at once.. but polyphony is trickier.
