Big compliments on the concept of AE Modular, it makes total sense to me.
I'm getting back into Synth DIY after a long break and just discovered the existence of the AE Modular. Definitely buying one when I get some savings together in a few months.
I immediately came to see this DIY forum because I like to build Lunetta CMOS synths. I'd like to experiment a bit with connecting AE Modular with my Lunetta and various DIY synth gadgets, it would be great to read more about what you folks are working on as well.
Lunettas can produce: Digital signals (0-5v) that have irregular patterns Interesting CV with a R2R module. Strange audio warbles of different kinds that would like to meet an AE modular filter.
If you would like to see what the Lunetta thing is about here is a living eBook that I compiled with the gathered wisdom from the Electro-music.com Lunetta forum.
A very warm welcome to our forum droffset! I actually downloaded your Lunetta guide mid last year when I first heard about Lunetta from Robert's AE Modular Kickstarter page!
How did it all started?
It started with the idea to build a Lunetta style synth (a synth based on digital logic chips (mis)using them for creating sound, a creation of Stanley Lunetta, therefore the name). For me it is also appealing to have the devices very compact (the KORG Volca series gave me lots of inspiration here), so I defined a small module format (about 10 x 2.5 cm). I liked the concept of abusing electronic parts, which gave the project it's name (AE: abused electronics).
So the AE Modular has as its inspiration the Lunetta approach, but has then shifted more towards analogue components.
Mark thetechnobear and I have discussed at Superbooth19 a module that would act as an interface between the AE System and a breadboard, definitely by providing +5V and Ground to the board but also by having a few knobs and input/outputs that can be used by a breadboard circuit. This would be ideal for CMOS circuit experiments!
Awesome stuff ... I'm looking forward to all the crazy projects that we'll likely see soon here!

welcome droffset Id not seen your document before, but looks like a really cool collection of information ... need to digest it
I played a little in this area with the OMSynth (by Peter Edwards/Casper Electronics), and would really like to take this further, I would definitely like to try to build some of your (or others) designs if you publish them.
Here are some initial modules while I'm saving for the AEmodular. These are small pcbs harvested from my Lunetta collection, repurposed onto AEmodular sized panels. These will need to live on top if the panels, but new builds will adopt the official way.
Dual triangle lfo 3x R2r ladders 6 channel mini mixer , not sure if this will work on single supply but we'll try it. Simple output Jack's Blank perfboard for scale A page of module templates Just playing around with laying out parts I already have. Need to use these up before buying more... Wishful thinking...
