Came across this. I dreamed of something like this for years.

Agreed, simple idea and appears to be well executed.

Clickless switching and I love the momentary option on the mute too.

Nice work Ben and Befaco.

Nice one, Ben! You should make a video about your journey getting a module into production.

It is interesting to see vactrols still get used in new designs from EU designers when they're not RoHS compliant...

My only complaint is I wish the jacks were on the top side of the panel instead of the bottom, but I suppose I can mount it upside down in my case. Otherwise this does a whole lot for performances and also addresses the one main weaknesses of the WMD performance mixer (limited aux sends).

Just came on to post about this. Thank you to everyone with the nice comments and sharing the videos etc. Much appreciated.

RE RoHS and Vactrols I believe they are compliant now as they don't have Cadmium (is that was it was called?) in them anymore. There's a few places to get them that can be used worldwide I believe. If you're interested and can find out about them in more detail.

Looks great Ben. I love a good, functional utility module. You can tell when it’s designed by necessity! :yay:

Ordered a kit from Thonk just a moment ago as soon as Ben's promo video rolled to its end.

Always liked inserting manual switches into systems such as my old Korg MS series well before getting into modular. With this the vactrols and momentary function on the same switch makes all the difference. Simple and super-useful.

but I suppose I can mount it upside down
Exactly. I do that a lot and this module’s the perfect candidate. For modules with knobs that point, I turn the knobs around too.
Congratulations DivKid! :nana:

Will be ordering one as soon as one of the US shops lists it.

Did I interpret that right, it's also a buffered mult? :D

cheers again everyone.

starthief - it's not a buffered multiple in the sense of 1 in to 4 super accurate copies of the signal. However ins and outs are buffered properly to avoid potential issues with modules not reacting further up or down stream in the patch. I know of issues that have arose with splitting signals and driving various things before.

Sorry for derailing, but it's surprisingly tough to find recent info on RoHS vactrols. Last I can find is some circa 2013 squabbling over conflicting test reports on cadmium levels in a particular brand. If there's an industry-agreed direction on safe vactrol choices, I'd love to hear about it!

jamos they're not ... I thought of that too late into the production of the boards. I'm living with one CV source into the first input though.

derail away! desolationjones I thought Cool Audio, Erica and others had "new" vactrols made that were all totally fine.
