Sam does not handle the distribution himself, it’s all outsourced to a music Merchandise company… I have only managed to play the EP once, I got told off for waking everyone up at 9AM!!!

So DHL showed up a week earlier than estimated :open_mouth: and dropped off a pile of PCBs. Guess its time to turn on the soldering iron and ramp up production again.

What are those PCB’s for? Is that red one on the left for a soft pot?

Nothing exciting to report. Received the missing parts for my Mutable modules from DigiKey and some through hole chips for a few other projects.

The yellow ones are various building blocks (3340 oscillators, MS20 filter stages, a simple VCA, etc). The red PCB is a 5-130× preamp, based on Music Thing’s Mikrophonie schematics, and inspired by @analogoutput’s Kosmos version:

Savings account interest rate letter from one financial provider, and one on “High Cost Of Credit balance display” from the one who I actually work for and really could not care about and don’t need to be told about by mail!!!

In today’s mail was Spacexpander by Alexander Pedals, not pictured and Kosmo Panel Blanks (10cm-2.5cm) by Kosmo. They’re as nice as the pics look. I wanted 15cm after I sent my order in unfortunately.

Clock divider and sequential switch pcbs
Both Fonitronik designs, the sequential switch uses a “max313” IC that I don’t have yet so don’t know if it works. Also just found out they are $10 each…prob wouldn’t have used this design had I known but I’m in it now

Caustic,

They look really nice in the setup @d42kn355 has. I have not built my setup. I wanted my own setup to respond to the setup in @lookmumnocomputer videos in my own way. With things as they are I have had some thought about building in paper until I don’t have to worry the risks of nonessential trips to a hardware store and a workshop.

Need to give one a test fit, but they came out beautifully!

Had some fun with the circles around the pots and jacks. Lol.

Who’s going to be the first to put circuits on front panels of Kosmo modules? :thinking:

In the meantime, these mamajammas showed up today:


I decided I needed open-back cans for sound design in my office because I felt bad for my wife having to listen to the process on my monitors, and found an r/hainbach thread where he advocated the brand.
