Inspired by the new Roland System-500 modular synth I got some PCBs and Panels from Frequency Central.



Not shown here, I ordered the parts from Tayda and Small Bear.

Went ahead and built the amplifier here:




actually the switch is upside down, I need to turn it around. Otherwise, amazing enough, it seems to work.

I was able to tell it worked because...

I built the power supply!



I plugged everything in and nothing blew up or smoked!

Curious as to how the case will turn out, you're just painting it black?

black with sort of "natural" end pieces.

I'm going to build the two ADSR Envelopes. and I'm going to build the AM Synths AM8121 filter. Like the Frequency Central System X modules it is based on the Roland System-100M.

I'd like to build an oscillator or two. I haven't decided on what yet.

Maybe a MIDI-to-CV module would be nice like this one from Grove Audio.

I'm thinking the Arturia KeyStep could be very useful.

the enclosure is completed, I started to build the filter but I got a little held up because I have to make my own face-plate for it. I will update with some pictures and stuff when I start working on it again.
