jdelgoulet, are there any news / updates on your project?
Is it still beeing done or have you quit working on it?
It'd be really nice if you could give a small outlook, it'd be much appreciated.
I for my part did not go ahead and just buy the AJH modules because I still hope that this project will happen very soon.

I also have all the parts waiting to be put together.

It's ready when it's ready. I don't mind the waiting time, but a more regularly update would be nice!
I also have all parts ready to build this wonderful project and really looking forward to it.

The ironic thing is, since this project was announced, Moog started making their own Model D again. Behringer are about to jump on the Model D bandwagon any moment now. And even Roland/Studio Electronics are about to try their hand at it too! (albeit in somewhat updated form) And the latter 2 will be pretty inexpensive..

I like DIY as much as you guys, but...

http://www.crazy-patroche.com/2015/10/c ... imoog.html

And i was seriously thinking about to put it down my CNC router to make it.
The only thing is that i wanted to support Julien project with all the work he did... but if he doesn't show up quickly.... :-((((((((

Not to mention the new Roland Boutique SE collaboration... It's not modular, but the field is getting crowded with mini moog instruments.

I'm in Asheville today and plan to go down to the Moog showroom. I expect I won't mention any of this to those folks.

I've just joined this forum so I can stay up to date with this thread. Now I can see the time stamps :lol: I am beyond interested in this project. I got into DIY stuff after seeing some model D clones a few years back. I've sent jdelgoulet an email through another forum I frequent and I'd like to apologize since I now understand the project isn't ready.

Fingers crossed for some good news soon! I would absolutely love to get my hands on the board/panel kit.

$299 for the Behringer...

I thought a few months back that Moog or another company would do that. I did not expect it to be so cheap, but well, it was very predictable.

Hi guys, i'm very sorry for the delay of our friend Julien. I hope there's anything wrong. I apologize for my hurry, but i need really a Minimoog clone. So, from the last time i was here, i did this.

Impressive!
Where did you get the schematics?
What are the dimensions of your pcb?

Thanks! 8-)
the schematic is a revisiting of the original schematic, only some components are changed for more finding easiness.
the pcb is 320x145mm, about 12,6x5,6in.

Edit: removed because I wasn't sure it was appropriate

But my comment wasn't as bad as the edit comment makes it look. I just mentioned that there are alternatives available.

Nice work!

Impressive metalwork.

Regarding the original initiative by mr delgoulet, everything on his github is old, and his youtube videos as well, so I am not sure anything will be happening anytime soon.

Julien, you talked about news regarding the panels back in april, what is the current status of the project? Any news?

If you check his username, you will see that Julien has not visited this site since early April, i.e. over 3 months ago, a bit bizarre given that he generated a lot of interest here by regular postings over a sustained period of time and posted of a BOM which caused a number of people including me, possibly foolishly, to pre-order parts.

The amount of effort Julien has put into this project, including the development of an online building resource, is phenomenal, but he did seem to become bogged down by the panel printing issues (surely not insurmountable, given that several other projects developed by Wigglers have involved similarly complex panels (e.g. Kipling's amazing 1601 clone).

A previous hiatus was broken when I sent him a private email pointing out that speculation was mounting about whether the project had been abandoned. I'll send him another email and see what happens.
