Panel for JH String Filter

via Scott of on the ModularSynthPanels list:
"I've decided to add individual outputs for each of the bandpass filters. This adds an additional 40 jacks to the panel and requires 2.5U of width. I don't want to start making panels in multiples of 1/2 U, nor do I want to try to add an additional 2U and and try to make everything fit by squishing everything closer together. Instead I've added an additional 3U and added extra space between the three sections (jack field at the left, pot field in the middle, main controls on the right).

I've posted a couple of layouts of this 8U wide monster. The first puts the jack field in the standard MOTM grid. The second uses a staggered grid. I think I prefer the staggered grid.


I've got the PCBs all soldered together and tested. I'll be cutting the panel today (plastic prototype), then I'll need to hook up all those pots and jacks, that could take a while."

  1. It looks great but I also kind of think it might be too much. A big part of designing anything is determining what would actually be useful and musical vs just putting everything there just in case. Do you really need all those knobs / patch points?
