After a few hours of walking aimlessly, asking a few unsuspecting locals. I finally was able to find a place that I can ask to cut to size stainless steel sheets. This will be used for my DIY panels to be integrated to the BugBrand System.
So excited to get this started. Although when I came home I found out that the panels are a bit off from the Bug blanks. I just need to come back next weekend to cut them down to size.
Not bad for 20 singapore dollars.
Saw this guy walking home
The bug is here!
I started with a few modules:
UTL2C- Matrix Mixer
Definitely a weird module to start with, but this was the module that actually put my foot in the BugBrand Door. My initial idea was to have it as a stand alone unit, but then I was able to get into the user list, Thanks to Tom. Still a bit overwhelming on a small set up. I am thinking of setting this aside in the meanwhile. Edit: As I was playing with this module yesterday I noticed that one of the banana sockets (Output D) is actually damaged, I already sent a message to the seller as well as Tom asking for help. Hope these pans out positively. Crossing my fingers on this one!
UTL3- Dual VCA
One of the core modules on a system. Not much to say with this module but as the guys in Muffwiggler forum says: You can’t have enough VCA’s.
PCR3A- SV Filter
This filter is awesome! Although I am still at the moment trying to wrap my head around it and will try to report back upon further investigation.
SYN2B- Quadrature Sine
This is my first VCO for this small system. Although highly capable it unfortunately outputs only sine waves. I may need to pick up another OSC sooner than later or maybe a Weevil, exciting times indeed.
UTL2- Output Module
Although I was planning to have the UTL2B which is a bigger brother of this module that comes with additional panning and headphone amplifier. Tom noted that I may need to have an output module to begin with so I settled for this one at the moment. Although he promised that I can trade it in with price difference when the UTL2B eventually becomes available.
What can I say?
The package was well packed and came in after only three days.
And Tom has been a real stand up guy in the process.
I’m hoping that I could post a series of sound sketches on the next few days.
