Well my intention of putting together a new modular system is back on track again. But as is always the way there has been a change of plan. This was initially brought about by the PSU in my first Doepfer rack failing (previous post about this rack).
I'm now going to build a similar sized system but using multiples of the smaller self-contained Doepfer A-100 Mini Case.

I already have a few basic Doepfer modules and the circuits and parts for some of my own module designs but I'm also working on an idea of putting the new Gristleizer PCB into a Eurorack format panel. If this concept is 'doable' I'll start documenting the construction process as & when I begin.

Mini Modular 1

As part of this ongoing CCCL project I recently recorded a short video of some experimental sounds as a 'tribute' to the experimental work of the BBC Radiophonic Workshop who staged a performance in London on the 17th May, that I couldn't attend. All the sounds and loops originate from a BC8 synth, a Gakken SX-150 synth and BugBrand Weevil synths. All the effects and processing is done with Boss pedals.
