Personally I don't care one bit about MIDI.

Not sure I'm totally clear on what your plan was, but to echo a couple people here, w/o 1v/Oct CV pitch inputs, it would be kind of a useless module!

Also, you might want to post about this on a couple more dedicated modular/synth forums like:

I love the idea of this. i would buy one from you if you are planning on getting these done sometime...;)

Especially if it was as cool or cooler than the harvestman version. And that is very cool.

And you'd make a lot of Frac Folk happy since Harvestman has no desire to build for that format. :wink:

Sorry it's been so long since there was any news on this. Since my last post a couple developments happened. First, I ran into a math issue that took a month to fix. Then, I graduated from college and my only potential job offer fell through. Since that happened I've had to ease up on this project while I search for employment. If anyone knows any audio companies that hire recent graduates in electrical engineering, I'd be grateful to hear about them.

Hopefully things will pick up again soon.

If only they built a kit for that!

This sounds like a cool project - good luck!

Cheers,

OK...this is all foreign to me. But...I really dig that youtube clip! Can someone explain to me what the hell is happening here...in laymen's terms please...lol...? Any sites I can visit for a synopsis of this cult following? The old Atari/Commodore 64 generated all of the sounds in that youtube clip? And one of you makes and sells these things for $250.00? Hit me on here or PM me...JD!

I took a short hiatus from job hunting to work on this, convincing myself that it will make good resume fodder.

I made a very short clip today while testing/tweaking. It is just a simple beat with some keyboard noodling over the top. The module is 3 voices (in this case voice 1 playing melody and voice 2 playing drums), but I only have one MIDI-CV converter so I can't get much more complex with demos right now. The main point is to show that progress is being made :)
