Filled up the Synthrotek wood case, 9U x 104hp. It needed more power than one 4ms Row Power 40, so I added a second. Row Power 40s can share a DC wall supply by connecting them with a 4ms barrel. I got one, but found it to be unreliable, becoming intermittent if bumped. Better approach was to solder the input power across the two, behind the panel.
Some new modules were acquired to fill it out.
- Four Bastl Tromsø
- Two 2hp Dual S&H
- Two 2hp Dual VCA
- Happy Nerding 3x MIA
- Toppobrillo Sport Modulator
- Klavis Twin Waves VCO

Always seeking to emulate the Cocoquantus Quantussy section, with its five VCOs, five VCAs and ten Sample and Holds, I have scoured the eurorack space for small VCOs, S&Hs, and VCAs. Tromsø was a perfect find. It combines a wide range VCO/LFO with comparator and a sample and hold in only 5hp. Plus it’s available as a DIY kit. Four of these, plus a Sport Modulator (a module reminiscent of the Serge SSG), four additional sample and holds, and four linear VCAs together form the core of another pattern generator that fits in the corner of this big box.
In the following post I’ll detail my first experimental patch with this rig.
