This video is a slide show of sorts showing the steps taken in the construction of my DIY modular synthesizer
cabinet. The modular features the small wonders series of synthesizers by the Swiss Company Technosaurus.
The Technosaurus Microcon, Microcon II, and the Effexon. My modular cabinet features the Doepfer DIY kit #1 for the power supply and the distribution boards to the modules. The Doepfer R2M as my secondary midi to cv converter next to the Microcon II. Modules so far are only a switched multiple and the A-119 External Input.
The paint scheme I created was based on the Technosaurus Panel Design and colors and is a tribute of sorts
to the Swiss manufacturer. The paint job of the cabinet and the blank panels took two weeks and even though it is not pictured in the video the bottom face was painted as well before the feet were attached. Also not pictured are the additional standoffs on the inside for mounting a thrid distribution board if needed. Power is supplied to the rear by a beautiful Neutric 90 degree xlr fitting.
All parts were sourced from here in the USA, excluding the DIY kit #1 from Doepfer which came from Germany
but was purched from Shawn Cleary at Analogue Haven. I spent close to $275 constructing all of this, not including any modules, the Technosaurus pieces, or the R2M. Thats for every nut, bolt, screw, paint, rails, DIY kit, XLR fittings
less my time and effort. If you would like a copy of my construction drawings, or any info on where I got something,
please send me a message and I will try to help you out.
This is a modular synthesizer (of sorts) and you can find out more about modulars via the wonderful source called "The Web".
