Synthrotek M/DIV – DIY Build

Synthrotek M/DIV Eurorack Modular Build

Completed MDIV Module

For our final build of the summer, we take on the Synthrotek M/DIV Eurorack Module. This module is apart of the “slider series” developed by Synthrotek and has the ability to multiply or divide clock signals with a quick slide. What sets this utility module apart from other similar modules is that the M/DIV can do both (multiply and divide) due to its dual clock channels. It also has a master clock out bringing the total outputs to 3.

The M/DIV also contains a clock reset input and a “tap” tempo button to help your performance reach new heights. The sliders that Synthrotek uses are reactive and contain a small LED that easily gives you an idea of what is going on with your clock signals.

MDIV or M/DIV?

So you may have noticed the spelling the M/DIV on the packaging or have read related media that shows it being spelled in other ways (MDIV or M-DIV).  The correct spelling of the module is “M/DIV” and for our purposes here, we will also refer to it as the M/DIV instead of any other way of spelling.

Let’s get onto the build …


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!

4MS RCD Breakout Module Time-lapse Build

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!
