Ha. Yeah, I'm not the least bit concerned.

Not that I mind you bringing it up. I don't.

Generally speaking, I am philosophically opposed to the very notion of treating gear like some precious child to be super babied and fussed over.

Things so sensitive rarely even make it into my orbit. Not that I abuse things for giggles, but it's a tool, more akin to a hammer than some artefact, in my sphere.

If some piece can't handle it, I'll replace it, with prejudice most likely. The very concern is mildly annoying. Engineer it out and leave me be (shakes fist at industry).

Many manufacturers do protect their outputs now. Every time I do a pedal conversion, I am very careful to protect both I/O. A little protection gives you more peace of mind.

Likely I shouldn't have put it that way, babying sounds bad. For me it's practical due to my location,
to do everything I can to avoid repairs or replacement. Also I just happen to be the technical type
who prefers to follow the rules in that regard.

@ pekbro , modern I/O construction is fairly resilient to ESD and other forms of under and over voltage. I spent a stint in an radiated and conducted susceptibility lab in the 80's. We did everything to equipment. Measured everything too. If it does happen it's a very unlikely occurrence. Most folks* that express concern have gotten bit by it.

What hasn't changed is the EMI pouring out of everything. It's worse now. Frequencies are up and shielding is down. But voltages have dropped as well... so that's a good.

*-Do you do backups of your computers? :0)

Well that's good to hear, and no I don't do backups. I take care of my electronics,
and build my own computers always, that's about it. Cars for instance, unless it's
a project car or motorcycle, I don't take particularly good care of them oddly,
since I have always been a natural with mechanical things I can keep them running
indefinitely for the most part, though they may be beat to ****.

My modular rig cost me no less that 6x what I paid for my car.

Don't mind me. Fair concerns. Different strokes.

What's the name of that instant between lovingly laying in the final module to complete the design, and discovering you don't have enough case space left for what you want to do now?!

In manufacturing, way back during the peak fascination of designing with ribbon cable: the name of the first successful blind plug of a ribbon cable assembly. And conversely, your first ruined blind plug cable assembly. :-)


Anyway, only one 8HP slot left for surprises. And a small pile of modules to start the next one with :-)

Before you know it, you'll somewhat constantly have a drawer-full of "extra" modules waiting on the next case or stuff you just don't use regularly.

Haha! Yup! Got several of those already; Atom, Smog, Dual S+H. Once this is full, I'll take it apart and finish the wood ends, install some temperature control, and cut out a connector panel, or spare some panel HP for a trunk lines to a larger cabinet. I've been thinking hard about re-casing my moogerfoogers into eurorack. But I haven't scoped out the front panel silkscreening process. Probably too much work to print a couple of copies of each panel. I have 12 to convert. That would fill an entire cabinet itself. But then, my voyager would be lonely...

I'm uncomfortable with this statement and how closely it resembles my habits. Please delete this post or else I will have to involve the cyber police.

Thank you! It's just two Behringer Go cases with wood cheeks :-)

Have to take it apart to stain 'em sometime soon. After I replace all my behringer pots probably :-)

4ms pod64x

First case, COMPLETED! I just put the last two modules, the Quadrax and Intellijel buffered-multi that I picked up this afternoon, into my 4ms pod64x a few minutes ago:

I see an appalling lack of modulation going on.

What is this, modulation for ants?

This is only temporary. It's the "overflow" case for everything that doesn't fit in the kb37 right now.

The 4ms pod will eventually be filled with a pair of Planars and a Tetrapad (which is what I really bought it for); i.e., a "control-skiff." Nice, because the pod brings the height nearly equal to that of the kb37's keybed.

This is how the pod64x will eventually be set-up:

How you liking that Pixel Drum? I've got most of Beast Tek's other modules, but the Pixel still calls to me.

Dude, same...



For practicality's sake, I normally just tweak knobs manually, but sometimes it's nice to put together a big giant drone sound and have it evolve by melding it with my hands. Control skiffs rock!

I really haven't put anywhere near enough time into it to be able to do any sort of comprehensive review, but I like it, it's very modulatable and has a whole bunch of cool algorithms. I bought it on a bit of a whim though because the seller had built it and then decided it wasn't for them.

Yes! When you buy the black Tiptop Happy Ending kit, it comes with the black µZeus—very sexy!
