Some Details on the New MacBeth M5X and Eurorack Modules?

via Ken MacBeth on Muff's Modules and More: "the M5X is due for launch some 8 - 10 weeks from now. I'm awaiting parts being manufactured and coming into the UK. The M5 and M5N have proved to be popular- and I have had many enquiries over the past while requesting information on how to get a unit. The M5N is now discontinued, but a new version with some different features is now on the horizon. Since I have been developing the circuits for the X-Factor synth- which has spawned some modular development- I have decided to vamp up the M5N taking it too- to a different level. All circuits within are being redesigned to the X-Series level that have been talked about elsewhere on this forum. For me, it's an exciting challenge and I can't wait for the result. There are still a crew out there who want the semi-modular approach, normalised jack sockets and keep looking. Today- I hope to conclude a design for the 3U guys too... hihi's 5.32 am here- so on with the day!!

Update: Mr Array reminded me this is the first mention of 3U modules. Note the X Series modules previously posted are 5U. See these posts for more X Series including video. Scroll when you get there.


  1. Please please please make the 3U modules in that amazing shade of blue!!!!

  2. Ken, If you can pack the awesomeness of the M5 in Eurorack you will be god of all that makes air move!

  3. obvious move- eurorack market is so much bigger than 5U

  4. actually, read thru the threads on muffwiggler... ken mentions considering eurorack for his x-series modules, after he releases the 5U's. BUT he says the modules would be something like 84 HP wide!

  5. beauty. if only he meant frac when he sed "3u"...
