Do you have the yellow wedge of a Teenage Engineering POM 400 knocking about? Why not integrate the modules into your Eurorack with these very cool front panel adapters?
Oddvolt POM 400 Eurorack Panels
I enjoyed the Teenage Engineering Pocket Operator Modular 400. The yellow beast is a clever self-contained collection of modules that’s a perfect thing to spend a few hours fiddling with. It does tend to find itself alone and in some ways, it’s more of a talking point on a sideboard than something that finds itself in my creative workflow. Oddvolt has a solution for that.
With the 14 panels and 2 power adapters I can pull all the modules out of the yellow wedge and populate a whole row of Eurorack. And then they’re there, an entire 3-oscillator modular voice, right in the thick of my musical modular musings – awesome!
The panels are made from PCB material of a deep dark black that looks rather tasty against the yellow of the protruding knobs. The screw holes match up so you can use the original screws to secure the modules behind the panel. For power, there are 2 power adapters into which you plug a bunch of the modules with their little 3-pin plugs and then these connect with a regular power ribbon to your bus board.
The full set of boards will cost you €200 which is less than €15 each.
These have been available since September but this is the first time I’ve come across Oddvolt. They also do some rather nice panels and PCB kits for Erica Synths modules and TiNRS amongst other things.
