Steve’s MS-22 build guide update

I’ve just updated the build guide for Steve’s MS-22 with some more pictures and drawings. These should further illustrate the assembly process, making it all go down without a hitch :). You can find the updated build guide here.

You can find a few excerpts of the updates below!

Steve’s MS-22 PCB/panel set back in stock + COVID19 update

Good news! The delivery gods have graced me with a new shipment of Steve’s MS-22 PCB/panel sets. I’m also happy to say that these new PCB’s now sport a fancy nickel gold plating, which should lead to even easier SMT soldering than before. Even though the current batch is a bit larger than the previous one, please know there already were some pre-orders. If you want one (or more), don’t wait too long before ordering! :)

In addition to the PCB/panel set, I’m now also offering the required knobs and switches, saving you some time (and shipping costs) sourcing these very specific components.… Read more

New little product for synth DIY enthusiasts

If you’re a DIY lover, you know the pain of connecting 3.5mm jacks to an oscilloscope. To make my life (and yours) a bit easier I’ve a developed a cool little product to help with this. Meet the THREETOM Wiretap: a 2-way multiple that you can directly mount on your oscilloscope’s BNC connector. The Wiretap allows you to conveniently visualise a signal on your oscilloscope and then take that same signal back out to your modular!

The webshop is now open for business!

After a bit of radio silence and a whole lot of work, I happily declare my new webshop open for business. In general, the webshop should provide customers with an even nicer shopping experience than they’ve had so far. Currently, there’s nothing in stock yet, but you can now preorder Steve’s MS-22 PCB/panel sets and Wiretap PCB’s/DIY kits, which are coming in 2 to 3 weeks.

Many things have been automated, such as calculating shipping costs, sending payment confirmations, etc… By automating all of these things, I’m gaining some time for the things that really matter: talking to you, assembling modules and designing new products!… Read more

First batch of Steve’s MS-22 has completely sold out!

I’m happy to announce that the first batch of Steve’s MS-22’s (PCB/panels and assembled modules) has completely sold out in about one month. Here’s a big thanks to all of my customers for making that happen! :)

So, what’s next you may wonder? Here’s a list of what I have planned in the coming weeks and months:

  • There will be a next batch of MS-22’s somewhere near the end of march, so please keep an eye out for that :).
  • Two more demo videos will accompany the next batch.

ThreeTom Modular releases Steve’s MS-22!

Today, ThreeTom Modular is releasing the “Steve’s MS-22 dual VCF” module for eurorack.

The MS-22 is a dual voltage controlled filter, inspired by the classic Korg MS-20 filter, with an innovative modulation matrix and one of the highest function-to-hp ratios in the land of Eurorack. 

The MS-22 contains two dedicated filter circuits, one low-pass and the other a high-pass. These are configured in series, the high-pass going into the low-pass. This configuration allows a unique duophonic fighting resonance behaviour (see the demo video below).… Read more

Two more demo videos!

The chaotic resonance of the HPF and LPF clashing is an excellent ingredient for dystopian drones and unique percussive pings!
Find out what the MS-22 sounds like when modulated by an envelope and sub oscillator. There’s also a great demonstration of the MS-22 as end-of-line mixing effect at the end of the video!
