Yet another Model T reissue, buried in my currently very messy work space. I seem to get a lot of these, which is interesting because I hate working on them. I love the amp itself, but the PCB construction is unbelievably difficult to work on.
By the way, if you have one of these that’s trashed/broken/unrepairable, I do buy them for parts or rehabilitation.

Yes, it’s a guitar. It is, in fact, a Gittler Guitar, as developed by (the now late) Andy Gittler. With teflon-coated titanium bits, a three-octave neck and one pickup per string, it makes for a versatile and tough synth trigger, or can be used traditionally for… metal? Alan’s son Yonatan now co-owns the Gittler business and plans to introduce this latest model at NAMM 2013.

My friend Darwin’s new system. He told me he was getting this earlier, and I asked him to FaceTime me as soon as he got it, and here it is.
What he’s done is construct a euro approximation of a Wiard 300 system.
The modules all conform to a shallow depth, so this enables you to have this thing on your lap. The enclosure is from the Livid elements system which is sort of a modular lego control surface sytem.
I think of my own personal modular as a fluid thing, a work constantly in motion. Patches themselves are ephemeral so the fact that the underlying hardware is as well doesn’t bother me.
This is not that. This is a complete thought as an instrument, expressed though modules. It has specific limits, which enforces a kind of deep relationship with the complete whole.
The top left corner features a Doepfer A-190-3, which you can simply jam a usb cable into, and presto you have MIDI note, velocity and bonus controller CV outputs.
In the bottom right, there is an Exit Strategy which provides a balanced output, optical limiter and output level metering.
