KOSMO Setup pics

I finally got to a point where I’m recording complete tracks without a computer (!) doing the sequencing or sounds. Here are some current setup pics:

Fantastic setup!!! I’m looking to do live performances so I’m trying to put together a tiny but mighty setup. Especially since I live in a bus and space is at a premium.

wow @Dud
i just scrolled this whole thread and cant believe how busy you have been!

just started building my own yesterday!

see you guys all have some other modules, other than the ones sam has been releasing this year (what brings me here)

are other people designing in this format?

People are building their own one-offs, and there are a few designs for which PCBs and sometimes panels have been distributed. I’ve done one so far: Analog Output Mikrokosmos.

Just finished @CTorp ‘s Doepfer style Switched Mult!
Works perfectly:D


I am probably going to pop in higher k resistors cuz these blues are super bright, and I had a couple off color greens mixed in with my bright greens, so I’m gonna swap those out as well.

Just waiting on my hot air station (tomorrow according to tracking!)

hello guy, thank you but I’ve been on building my modular for over a year, and I have time.
and as the others said if you do your panels and your circuits yourself, you can adapt to the Kosmo format several schem that can be found on different sites ( DIY repositories. ),
there are also some on this forum
be careful building modules it’s drugs :wink:

I haven’t jumped into the build my own yet . so I have been getting PCB’s from different people there is a lot out there . I mostly have built Sam’s and MFOS music from outer space stuff . https://synthcube.com/cart/ is a good place to find pcb’s or full kits . but there are many more .

One of the genius things about Kosmo (or maybe just lucky, but let’s assume genius) is that it not only uses compatible signal levels and conventions with Eurorack, but it uses the same* power voltages and power connector. What that means is in principle, if you have a Eurorack PCB, you can put it behind a Kosmo front panel and it’ll work. You’ll have to come up with the panel, probably reconfigure how the panel components connect to the PCB, and maybe work up a different way of attaching the PCB itself to the panel, but that’s all doable. So the gazillion DIY Eurorack modules out there are potentially a gazillion Kosmo modules too.

*Leaving aside Eurorack’s 5V rail and CV and Gate which are hardly ever used.

I finally made my second module! It is Mixie, a 3 channel mixer and 3 attenuators. I hope it can mix things up a bit.

Neat! What’s the panel made from?

Ah @butterbagel I see you live in Washington. CTorp and I are also Washingtonians.

Here’s mine so far. I built a simple mult and converted an AI Synthesis mixer kit into Kosmo format. I’m probably going to need another case soon.

nice ! yes the more we advance the more we want to build other modules so more cases :wink:

Looking proper, @hiegdk!

Looks nice . my approach was to build the wall of boxes to fill [ carpenter] not sure if that was a good idea $$$$…

Hi all! I was asked to post this here : )
It’s a Doepfer 6U case, which I converted this afternoon to accept Kosmo modules : )
