Frac fans- help us create more frac kits?

Post by synthcube » Thu Oct 18, 2018 7:47 am

Greetings
We're in the midst of kitting additional modules for frac (stroh, barton, a few surprises) -- and we are looking for someone to test-build beta kits.

We are looking for an experienced frac kit builder, with a bit of spare time, willing to build modules, shoot a few pics, doublecheck our BOMS, comment on build questions/issues etc. We'll negotiate fair pay in the form of cash, modules and/or store credit :guinness: for the right person...

no need to post here, but please PM or email us at the store-- long live frac rack

Oh wow. New frac kits is exciting! Hoping for some different types of modules - rhythmic stuff, control stuff, sequencer? That stroh Optogate was killer, more of those would be nice :tu:

Protection circuit

Post by fracmonkey » Sat Oct 20, 2018 11:03 am

I would highly recommend using the power supply input protection circuit in any new designs and/or adding them to old designs. This is one of Fracs pluses. A lot of Euro will just blow up if you make a error connecting the power!
Its down at the bottom of the Blacet Tech Page.

In case you don't know what those "PS" things are, try googling polyfuses.

A banana frac setup based around the stroh 3u designs would be nice to see

A FlexWave in Frac would be very cool!
