  1. 145 quid for a couple of PCBs and a panel is basically taking the piss. Dreadbox just released the Hades kit which gives you a full synth voice for your Eurorack for less than this price, and their kit includes all components, knobs, sliders, and pot caps.

    Jog on Frequency Central.

  2. I’m excited to see this. I used to build FC’s diy guitar effects projects on forums ages ago, and they were always well put together.

  3. Good idea, and a fair price, though not a top sale.
    FC might have included a note that you have to buy all components, potentiometers, switches, connectors and buttons yourself and have to solder the thing completely yourself. This is not negative to experienced DIY people, but noteworthy nonetheless.
    I would be interested to know what a completely finished module will cost, and would also be interested in an audio / video demo of both modules.

  4. Yeah there’s no mention anywhere here about the DIY aspect.

    I browsed the website at the buld and user notes.
    Cannot find and circuit schematics.

    I would like to see some circuit schematics of what I am building.

  5. The press release says, “Eurorack modules that are designed to be cost-effective, combining the functionality of a bunch of modules behind one panel.”

    Didn’t Bob Moog already do this in 1972 with the Minimoog?
