Fonitronik Ps3100 Triple Vactrol Resonator – Time Lapse Build

Fonitronik Ps3100 Triple Vactrol Resonator - Time Lapse Build

In our latest build we take on the Fonitronik Ps3100 Triple Vactrol Resonator – A clone of the lovely triple resonator from the rare 1977 Korg Ps3100 polyphonic modular.

What we have here is basically a module combining three bandpass filters (vactrol based filter core from the PS3100) with a simple resettable LFO and some clever CV and signal routing.  The LFO is normalized to the common CV input, which is normalized to the 3 single CV inputs. the 3rd CV channel can be inverted.

Time Lapse Build: Nonlinear Circuits Vactrol PiLL (NLC Vac PLL)

Violent Behavior PCB

In this build, we take on the Nonlinear Circuits (NLC) Vactrol PiLL module. While the build itself wasn’t a difficult one, it did take some patience when it came to soldering the LED after mounting the panel. With most of the components already mounted, we recommend you use a very fine time on your soldering iron to be able to get to the LED solder points.

Also, make sure you don’t have a lot of coffee or caffeine in your system when it comes to building this module… save that for when you are done!


Time Lapse Build: EOWAVE Weather Drones Module

Time Lapse Build: EOWAVE Weather Drones - Mysterious & Wondrous Sounds

As the holiday season approaches and the weather turns colder, there was only one thing that could help soothe our weary modulation needs …. EOWAVE Weather Drones!  That’s right… we take on the wondrous and mysterious Weather Drones Module by EOWAVE in our latest DIY build.

Little is known about this module, but many describe as a “baby 0-Coast” due to all of its features and capabilities.  The EOWAVES Weather Drones can be self patched, or used with other eurorack modules via CV and trig inputs.

oRigiNs – Cover Art Comparison 2001 vs 2018

maKo oRigiNs old coveroRigiNs - Remastered Cover 2018

As we approached the reissue of the oRigiNs album by maKo, we decided to take a look back at the cover art and compare it to the new reissued artwork and what it will look like upon its release in 2019.  We had originally scheduled this release for October of 2018, but decided to pull the album back for some last minute tweaks in the mastering and production.

Since this audio was recorded on audio cassette circa 1994 and then issued on CD in 2001, the master files needed some heavy duty reworking.  To bring you the best sound possible, we decided to push this one back and move forward with the new maKo single titled “griNd“, as well as the remastering of his previous EPs “aNgel” and it’s b-sides “fa113_n“. These reissues will release after the single and oRigiNs will follow thereafter.

Updated Release Timeline: maKo

December 2019 – griNd

January 2019 – aNgel EP

February 2019 – fa113_n (aNgel b-sides EP)

TBD Q1 2019 – oRigiNs
