Drum mods available now

Due to some parts going on back order, I only have 5 drum mods available at present, so I am making them available here first as I know some of you guys expressed interest in these, I'll give it a day or so then I will be offering them for sale through other channels, so if you want one be quick!

Fitting requires 6 small holes to be drilled at the front of the Monotribe, and 5 wires to be soldered (only at the Monotribe end, the other end is pre-soldered)

There are 4 on/off/on switches, centre (off) is the stock Monotribe sound, the first is Bass Drum, up gives a longer warmer sounding Bass Drum, down gives a huge 808 rivalling boom.

Next switch is Snare Drum, up gives a shorter higher pitch, down gives a longer decay, used in conjuction with the Snare Noise switch quite a few additional sounds are available.

Snare Noise switch - up gives a very short decay, down gives a long decay, almost clap like. 

I have spent a long time refining these mods, so that they give what I consider to be the best and most useful range of sounds, the small toggle switches are very high quality so should last for years, they were chosen for their compact size and feel, as well as the look they give when fitted (no panel mounted nut/washer)

The kit comes fully assembled, with panel sticker and drilling template to ensure that if you follow the instructions you will have a very neat job ;)

Price is £40 plus shipping UK £4 Rest of world £9

Some new stuff coming

I have just ordered some parts and PCBs for drum mods and the long awaited VCO mods, there will be 10 available of each once they arrive, not sure how long they will take but as soon as they are available I'll post here and on twitter. If you have a midi out equipped Monotribe and a modular synth you might be interested in the trigger box, basically it has a midi input and 4 trigger outputs, 1 for each drum sound, and 1 for synth section. Pretty cool for using the Monotribe as a polyrhythmic trigger sequencer with your modular synth. Coming soon, I'll post here when they are ready. I'm going to be doing another run of the internal midi kits, really the best solution if you are handy with a drill. See the pics on the earlier post, looks much nicer. CV/Gate breakout boxes are available again, lovely little sturdy things. Got lots of ideas for new mods, stay tuned! Until next time ;)
