Hi Roman, if we have the option to use the silonex, which one is it?

noticed you are offering a built MU version of this module, will you be doing the same for a euro version?

i have changed the integrator (from 208 to the original 266 version)
due to this and some mistakes of the first test-pcbs i have decided to order new test-pcbs before main run
this is very complex and expensive module and i want to be 100% sure that everything is good

i should have them less then i a week, so the preorder would last for a week more.

Thanks!!

Hey Roman, I'd like to make a frac one of these for myself, I'm guessing the 5u and buchla size boards are likely too big to fit, but the euro ones will. Can the eu board set be easily run from 15v power instead of 12v? I checked the build thread but couldnt find this information

Thanks!

use the Euro boards with the MOTM/5u BOM. This will adjust the appropriate components properly for the +-15v.

i have added very detailed BOMs and schematics for buchla format. Resistors Mouser #s are missing but will be added soon.

5U and EURO to come soon

preorder is opened 5 days more (till april 29th), after that i order the main run of the PCBs @ the factory. there're some russian may holidays, so it might take 4 weeks instead of regular 3.

Thank you everyone for ordering! We're somewhere near the initiating the press of the PCBs.

the preorder goes 18 hours more and then i close it. PCBs are ordered next week.

i will order some extras for people who didn't participate but would like to get some later. the price of 5U would be $150 thought (due to small amount of PCBs ordered and and HUGE PCBs size)

i got the v1.1 (second) test pcbs on friday, assembled them and all i can say that now it works just PERFECT - all mistakes from v1.0 are gone, integrator is a native 266 slew, not the part of 208 music easel anymore. so -1 Vactrol.

Buchla's BOM is final and confirmed, feel free to order the parts using it.

5U BOM would be here tomorrow and 266 BOM should be ready next week.
