FRUKU Itora – DIY Build

FRUKU ITORA - DIY Build

As the winter months approach, we find ourselves wanting to build more modules that are unique and serve a purpose. FRUKU as you know is a buddy of ours and like modules previously built, they serve a purpose. One of his latest modules is named Itora which we have no idea what significance that name means, but we had to have it.

The Itora according to FRUKU is a “cascaded” LFO module with four independent unsynced LFO speeds that are all controlled with one knob. Each LFO has a square and triangle wave output and the module features a cv input (with attenuator) for the speed parameters. Sounds rad huh? We thought so too, which is why this module is our most recent build.

Of course, we are here for you as well if you have any questions while building the module. Just hit us up on our Contact Page.

FRUKU Glue – DIY Build

FRUKU Glue - DIY Build

FRUKU has some pretty badass modules and one of his latest, Glue is a 4hp compressor module with a lot of grit. Glue is a compressor that has a high pass filter to help clean up any sound tossed through it. The high pass filter is fixed at 20 hrtz.

As for the kit itself, it requires basic soldering knowledge and a fairly steady hand as some of the components are pretty close to one another. With that being said, we didn’t let that sway us away from taking on the FRUKU Glue for our first build of December.

FRUKU Evi – DIY Build

FRUKU Evi - DIY Build

One of our favorite manufacturers, FRUKU is at it again with the release of his Evi module. In only 2HP, the FRUKU Evi is an envelope follower and signal inverter, meaning that you can plug any audio signal into the module and you will output an inverted envelope. What can this do? 

Well, it can add some spice to your signal routing and bring some flare to those beats you oh so desire. As one of our first builds of the fall season, the Evi was a perfect module for us to get our hands on. Let’s get on with the build.

Synthrotek VCA – DIY Build

Synthrotek Crossfader (CF) and 2hp Buff Mult - DIY Builds

We all know that you can’t have enough VCA’s in a modular system. The gang over at Synthrotek recently released a new VCA module in their slider series and we had to pick one up. This kit is different from most of the other Synthrotek kits we have assembled in the past, in that it is an SMD kit. With that being said, this module and/or build is not for the novice builder. 

You will want to have a few hours of practice on SMD before jumping into this one. 

The slider series by Synthrotek looks great and along side the other slider modules, the VCA fits right in. As with most SMD builds, we generally use a digital microscope, but on this build we did not. We not only used our normal 60/40 solder but we also used solder paste on some of the build. Let’s get on with the build shall we?
