FRUKU B0B – DIY Build

FRUKU B0B - DIY Build

While there are many 808 Kick modules on the market, none are quite like the B0B from FRUKU, a designer out of the Netherlands. The B0B is FRUKU’s first solo module and all we can say is that it packs one hell of a punch.

Now, you might be asking yourself, where have you heard the name FRUKU before? A few months back, we built and featured the Veratrum, a new module by Reverse Landfill and guess who… FRUKU! 

The B0B is unique in that even though it is an 808 kick drum, it has a clipping parameter that accepts CV to control the amount of grit you want to add. The module features a decay, tone and volume pot as well. It’s black panel mimics that of the Veratrum and a lot of the modules produced by our friends at Reverse Landfill. 

Links and more links…

Below are a series of links that have been provided by FRUKU to help assist with the use, building and buying of the B0B.

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.

Let’s get on with the build…

Sound of Mewsic - Kit

Have you ever found yourself wanting to hear a quick sample of a new module or have your speaker for your “on-the-go” case? Well, the Sound of Mewsic module from Waveform Magazine is exactly what you need. 

(You are probably asking yourself … What is it?) 

It is a small and versatile 10hp speaker module that is a quick and easy build even for the novice builders. For our latest build, we take on Waveform Magazines DIY Project 7… the Sound of Mewsic!

Consisting of a panel, speaker, a pot, a single jack, a tiny PCB and a few other components, the Sound of Mewsic took about 20-30min to complete. 

Let's get on with the build already.... the PCB

Start by placing the power header on the backside of the PCB and tacking it down, making sure you line the notch up with the silkscreen.  Next, place the potentiometer and the audio jack on the topside of the PCB and carefully flip the board over to solder everything into place. Attach the completed PCB to the panel by the jack nut.


Evaton Technologies AModulator – DIY Build

Evaton Technologies AModulator - DIY Build

The Evaton Technologies AModulator SDIY kit is a companion module to the RF Nomad voltage-controlled shortwave receiver. What does that mean though?

In crude form the AModulator is a RF amplitude modulator that produces a micro-power radio-frequency signal which the RF Nomad can decode. 

Still not making sense? It’s ok, it didn’t make sense to us until we dove a little more into this sidecar module. 

Simply put, the AModulator allows you to encode any audio signal into an amplitude modulated RF signal, which the RF Nomad can then decode back to audio, with all the artifacts of vintage shortwave sound.

The AModulator SDIY kit consists of two printed circuit boards and thru hole components required to complete the kit. One circuit board contains the actual electronics of the module, and the other circuit board serves as both the faceplate of the module, as well as a touch-plate antenna.

Waveform Magazine Mewsic Box (Project 6) - DIY Build

As one dives into the modular world, you will find yourself examining or re-examining your setup almost on a daily basis. The case is one of the most important, if not THE MOST IMPORTANT piece to a modular artist. Waveform Magazine did us all a favor by putting together their new Mewsic Box. A 60HP DIY eurorack modular case that not only has style, but also functionality in more than one way. Like any project that Waveform Magazine makes, the Mewsic Box is a unique case; its functionality is more than meets the eye. 

The Waveform Magazine Mewsic Box is an all in one project and it has “optional” add-on’s that can really make this little case stand out.

For instance, how many times have you seen a case with a small plant holder built into a cable hanger? We hadn’t either and just thought this is was too badass not to check out. Another cool option is the ability to house an internal speaker so that you may use the case on the fly.

 If you purchased the Meow Mixer (see this build), you can mount it inside the case so that you don’t take up any extra precious top case space.
