Q165 Prototype Module Streamlines Prototyping Moog Format Synth Modules has introduced the Q165 Prototype module, designed to give you a convenient way to implement custom circuitry for 5U Moog format modular synthesizers.

The panel provides placement for knobs, jacks, switches and LEDs. White blocks provide space to write labels using a fine-point ink marker.

The prototype board provides center and side power rails, and enough space for 4-6 integrated circuits – typically op-amps. The pad-per-hole array accepts most common thru-hole components and is arranged like a typical proto board and solderless breadboard, but with additional holes on the sides to accept MTA connectors. The power entry section is laid out for +15V and -15V entry filters along with +5V for digital circuits.

A variety of parts are provided in the kit including PCB mounting spacers, MTA connectors for power, jacks and pots, along with a variety of common resistors, capacitors, transistors and diodes. Op-amp and an OTA ICs are also provided.

They note that ‘The user must supply the circuit design, tools, additional electronic components, and of course the skills.”

Pricing and Availability

The Q165 Prototype Module is available now, priced at $98 USD.

    1. You have two types of people in synthesis. Those who respect the boutique maker’s time and appreciate DIY. And those who want a race to the bottom and everything for free. I can’t image the free systems sound that great.
