rbss update

So, the first batch of the rbss has sold out (there were less than 10 made, so maybe it’s not so surprising). Next up — and almost ready to start building — is another batch of 10, but this time in yellow, with a different panel design. Here’s a sneak peek:

The LED in the yellow version will actually be red, to tie in with the ’70s colour scheme and a time when all LEDs were red…

Follow announcements about availability over on the AEModular forum which now has a wonkystuff board for product announcements and general chit chat.

an rbss video

What with all of the stuff that’s been happening, I completely forgot to post the latest video demonstrating the wonkystuff rbss module! This one ups the production values by actually using a tripod and recording the sound through a mixer. Wonders will never cease.

As the firmware for the rbss has been refined, we’ve been discovering more neat little tricks that the rbss can do, but those will have to wait for the next video.

rbss ‘flatpack’

Thinking that the rbss might be available as a part-assembled kit for a small reduction in cost — the PCB would come with all of the surface-mount components already soldered, just meaning that the customer would need to solder the connectors and pots, and do the final assembly…

new AE Modular Module on the way

This has been on the roadmap for a while, but we finally put together the first prototype today and are very pleased to announce that it worked first time 🙂 We present the random-bit-shift-sequencer (rbss)

There are a few experiments in here

  • our first surface mount module;
  • the part translucent panel;
  • the first design with in-situ-programming (so we can update the firmware!)

We think that it turned out Ok (all the experiments worked out as hoped, although we have a better panel design and colour scheme planned!)

mm33 mods…

The mm33 matrix mixer is designed to perform the mixing of audio or control signals without too many ‘bells and whistles’. Sometimes, however, it might be required that something different is needed, and that’s where this page comes in. We’re going to list a few things that you can change if you like — the intention is that this page might grow over time…
