I'm new to modular synths. I started building a system around May of 2009.
Eurorack is the format that I am going with. At first I thought I might build a 'frankensynth' out of multiple formats. When I realized the complexity of multiple power supplies and mounting rails I decided to ditch the idea and go with a straight forward system.
One of the manufactures that caught my eye was Plan B.
What also caught my eye very quickly was the warnings against purchasing Plan B modules.
I'm not sure what happened, apparently some people bought direct and didn't receive their stuff and some stuff didn't work and was returned to Plan B but never fixed...
I really wanted a vector joystick for my system, Plan B is the only company that makes a vector device. I bought one through Big City Music and had no problems.
I hope everything works out for Plan B. The designer and owner of the company has some amazing ideas and I really want to see them come to fruition. I know some people are very angry and feel personally victimized, I hope things work out for them as well.
here are some of the modules that I thought would have been really cool...
not only would they have been cool, but they look sexy as hell.
