Tesseract Modular is prototyping a new twist on the 16n faderbank and it looks awesome! :D

Look at that sweet thing!
It’s rackable, does midi and a attenuation and a whole lot of features.

However, what’s relevant for the ER301 affictionados that we clearly are, is that it runs (as i understand) the 16n firmware and it has an I2c header. Oh. Yes.

I don’t know about you people, but i’ll be following the develppent of this prototype closely.

Worth mentionning is that the Tessaract Modulair guy usually provided PCB/Panels oh his designs or adapatations. Therefore, we can just build the thing on the cheap. :smiley:

Yes. Yes. Yes. So much ‘‘Yes’’. :smiley:

Here i am replying to myself because i can’t even, i just, this could end up behing pretty much the perfect er301 controller module. At least for me that is. Everybody’s entitled to their own vices. lol

Nice. Bipolar as well. What are the inputs for?

Mine would have some on/off/on lever switches as well and almost certainly a usb A female port instead of that fragile up-sticking micro usb !

Is there an I2C connector on the back of the module too? that would be more handy as this connection is meant to be permanent + the I2C connector is on the back on the 301, teletype, txo etc.

Agreed. The only thing I would add is that the sliders should be over on the right side of the faceplate and the jacks on the left side. That way you wouldnt have patch cables crossing your field of view or getting in the way if you line them up one next to another

I can’t really answer to the questions regarding the specs of the module, it’s a prototype from the Tesseract Modular guy, you can always reach him on Facebook, he’s a cool dude.

Inputs are for cv, so any incomming voltage will be ateenuated by the fader and then converted to midi etc. There is a switch (1 for every 4 faders, there was no room for 16 switches) in case you want to convert bipolar voltages, if not all negative voltage present in the input would be equal to zero and only the positive ones will have a value in the digital conversion.

Thats easy doable, will include that for sure. Thx for the suggestion!

Sorry but i won’t do that mod. Routing the pcb was not easy and such thing would require again lots of work. Also ins/outs on the right is pretty used in euro gear

If you want the jacks on the other side, mount the module upside down?

I dont know much about this but this seems to be the best mod version I’ve seen, jacks mounted on the faceplate, as well as i3c and midi jacks. Can be mounted eurorack as well…anyone wanna build one for me?
