4MS Atoner Eurorack Module DIY Build

4MS Atoner Eurorack Module - DIY Build

For our latest eurorack build, we take on the mystical Atoner by 4MS Company. This little beast is only available as a kit that can either be ordered from 4MS directly or through other DIY module shops. We picked up ours from the gang out at SynthCube and dove right into the build.

As for the build itself, it was relatively straight forward thanks to the extensive BOM and assembly guide that were provided with the 4MS Atoner kit. Where the build can wonder into the intermediate build category is with the tight ground wiring and navigation of confined spaces (see photos). With that being said, make sure your iron is clean and primed correctly as you don’t want to go into this build with a dirty iron or a dull tip. As for aesthetics, we loved the graphic design on the panel but didn’t care for the knobs that were supplied with the kit. They looked like generic cheap knock off Davies clones, so we chose our own orange Davies Clones to give our 4MS Atoner a little more flavor.


Time-lapse Build: 4MS Rotating Clock Divider (RCD)

We just finished up the 4MS Rotating Clock Divider (RCD) to pair along with our RCD Breakout Kit.  While we didn’t time-lapse the build of the RCD Breakout, we did record the full build process of the Rotating Clock Divider.  We hope you enjoy!

We decided to take on the DIY kit of the 4MS RCD Breakout module which connects to the Rotating Clock Divider (RCD).

It was an pretty easy build as long as you have the patience for the intricate soldering of the individual ribbons in the power cable.  Make sure to also pay special attention to have the switches are set.  Once we were done, we hooked it up to our Synthrotek TST module to test the power cable and we were good to go. 

Note: Ribbons 13-16 are not used and you can pull them down carefully and cut them off. 

 

Next up is the 4MS RCD build – stay tuned!
